EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit

I got to know 'Sunrise Solicitors' by searching in Google, where I read several positive feedbacks from their clients. My case was to apply for 'EU Settlement Scheme Family permit' for my mother. Before going there, I talked with several other solicitors. I found significant difference in the way Mr. Kevin talked with me about my case which convinced me to give my case to them. He listened very carefully what I am after and why I am looking for help to apply for my mother's case. This was the point I missed from other solicitors that nobody wanted to hear my case in detail. Mr. Kevin and I, we talked about both of the two options: 1. EU family permit 2. EU SS family permit. He suggested to go for 'EU SS Family Permit' and commented realistically that there is more than 70% chance to get permit accepted.

Big thanks to Ms. Neha who handled the case very sincerely and with a great care from start to end. I am very pleased with all the communications I had with Ms. Neha about the case. All the statements and letters Ms. Neha had written to accompany the application were very satisfying.

As a result of all these, my mother got the EU SS Family permit. Many thanks to Sunrise Solicitors to help us out. I recommend their service and quality work they provide.

EU Settlement Scheme Applications

We owe a great deal to the quality work, diligence and know-how regarding the various immigration matters Sunrise Solicitors have been helping us with over the years. Fundamentally it is about keeping families and love ones together and it would have not been possible without the help of Sunrise Solicitors and especially Arshad Mahmood and his fantastic team. Thank you so much for all of your help and well done!

Residence Card As Family Member

We started our Journey with Sunrise Solicitor’s not knowing what to expect. My Mom needed a visa to remain with us due to her age and moreover as a support system for both us. We tried all avenues by ourselves and exhausted all options and were referred by a friend to try Sunrise Solicitor’s as he had a similar case which was successful. My friend said they work on very tough cases and had a very good track record. We met with Kevin first who walked us through the process step by step, gave us different options and the wheel were in motion from day one. Asad took over our case and he was amazing, kind, systematic and very empathic to our situation, he made this very difficult process look so stress-free and seamless. Asad and Kevin safeguarded all angles of the case before proceeding and talk us through the whole thing to ensure it was the right way to proceed. All required documents were checked thoroughly by both of them and later sent to us to be crossed checked again. With these steps we felt at ease that everything was done to perfection. The cost break was done well and the payment program was set very well to ensure we cope with the payments.  Overall Sunrise Solicitors deserve a  5 star rating in customer service and being very professional  with guaranteed results. I would like to Thank Asad and Kevin for the ‘Amazing work’ they have done and wish them all the best !

Spouse Visa Renewal

Sofia  Sabelli was  very on board and communicative with my case. Thank you Sunrise thank you Sofia. All appreciated and will recommend.

Home Office releases 300 from detention centres amid Covid-19 pandemic

The Home Office has released almost 300 people from detention centres in the last few days because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Guardian has learned.
The speed and scale of the release is unprecedented in recent years. Detainees and charities estimate that more than a quarter of those currently locked up have been set free.

The release comes in the wake of a legal action launched last week which argued that the Home Office had failed to protect immigration detainees from the coronavirus outbreak and failed to identify which detainees were at particular risk of serious harm or death if they do contract the virus due to their age or underlying health conditions.

Landmark Immigration Bill to end free movement introduced to Parliament

The Immigration Bill has been introduced to the House of Commons today (Thursday 5 March) ending the European Union’s rules on free movement.

It represents an important milestone in paving the way for the new UK points-based immigration system.

Today we’ve taken the momentous first step to end free movement and take back control of our borders, delivering on the people’s priorities.

IHS Fee Increase

It was announced in March Budget that the immigration health surcharge (IHS) will increase from £400 per year to £624 per year for adults and £470 for children under the age of 18. The discounted rate for students, their dependants and those on the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme will increase from £300 to £470. This will take effect from October 2020.

Changes To The UK Immigration Rules

On 12 March 2020, the government has laid a new statement of changes to the Immigration Rules.The main changes relate to the EU settlement scheme (EUSS) which can be summarised as follows:

  • The EUSS has been extended to those who hold a relevant document issued under the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016 as an extended family member on the basis that they are a child under the age of 18 who is subject to a non-adoptive legal guardianship order in favour of an EEA citizen; they are the relative of the spouse or civil partner of an EEA citizen; or they are a child under the age of 18 of the durable partner of an EEA citizen (implementing the CJEU decision in SM (Algeria)).
  • The Rules have been clarified to confirm that the eligibility criteria for family members of British citizens (Surinder Singh cases) need to be satisfied before the end of transition period on 31 December 2020 and immediately before the British citizen and family member return to UK.  The Surinder Singh route also applies to extended family members of British citizens in line with SM (Algeria).
  • The Rules have also been amended to bring within scope those non-EEA nationals issued with a residence document under transitional provisions in the 2016 Regulations as the family member of a British citizen with dual UK/EEA nationality following the decision in McCarthy.
  • Durable partners and dependent relatives applying to the EUSS may rely on expired documents issued under the EEA Regulations 2016 but only where they had applied for a further residence document under the 2016 Regulations based on the same family relationship and that further document was issued after the first had expired.
  • Where an individual has an application for a residence document under the 2016 Regulations outstanding at the end of the transition period, that individual can rely on that document (if issued to them) in applying to the EUSS.
  • Applications can now be refused where an individual has been or would be excluded from refugee or humanitarian protection, or Article 33(2) of the Refugee Convention applies or would do so, as they are a danger to the security of the UK, or applies as, having been convicted of a particularly serious crime, they are a danger to the community.
  • Leave to enter granted by virtue of having arrived with an entry clearance granted under Appendix EU (Family Permit) can now be cancelled where there has been a material change in circumstances since the family permit was granted. A cancellation decision on those grounds can be challenged by way of administrative review.
  • The returning resident provisions in Part 1 of the Immigration Rules for those with ILR returning to the UK after a lengthy absence abroad are disapplied to those with ILR under Appendix EU.

Alongside these, there have been a few other changes in other parts of the Rules, the most notable being:

  • The salary threshold in the eligibility criteria for indefinite leave to remain under Tier 2 will not increase annually following the recommendation of the Migration Advisory Committee. As a result, it will remain at £35,800 for all applications submitted on or after 6 April 2019 (paragraph 245HF(vi)(3)).
  • Archaeology jobs fitting SOC 2114 - Social and Humanities’ Scientists are now in the UK-wide shortage occupation list.
  • There has been the annual update to the Permit Free Festival list in Appendix V (allowing performers to be paid while here as visitors).
