  • ILR application for US graduate!! How difficult is it?...................

    Hi all

    Need some help with ILR application . I graduated from US university in Dec 2007 and am here in the UK in visit visa. My parents and younger brother is here already (last year) in ILE which they applied from Nepal. I am 24 yrs old and want to apply for ILR in the Gurkha category. but the chances are slim as i have heard from people.

    What are my chances? and if not approved what should be done to stay here.

    any posts are welcome.

        I am sorry to answer your question bit late due to my other commitment. Your question is very useful that who wishes to apply as dependent, over 18. Normally I have been asked this type of question by Gurkha soldiers that they want to bring their dependent from abroad.
        I understand that you have been graduated from one of the US university. I do understand that your brothers are settled in the UK on basis of your parent status. The sole question is whether or not you are entitled to apply for settlement visa on basis of your parent status. It is very difficult to eastablish yourself due to your age and personal circumstances. You are 24 and came to the UK as visitor. You can apply under human rights grounds. The AIT has set up some precedents that they are succesful if it is established they are living outside the UK in the most exceptional compassionate circumstances and mainly dependent financially on relatives settled in the United Kingdom

        Please bear in mind that this type of application will take bit longer time to conclude the case. Please ensure that your visitor visa will not expire. You have to show documentary evidence that you are financially supported by your father and there must be exceptional and compelling circumstances as you cannot live alone outside the UK.
        I refer two paragrapghs of Immigration Rules in your context:
        Para 297-The requirements to be met by a person seeking indefinite leave to enter the United Kingdom as the child of a parent, parents or a relative present and settled or being admitted for settlement in the United Kingdom are that he:
        (i) is seeking leave to enter to accompany or join a parent, parents or a relative in one of the following circumstances:
        (a) both parents are present and settled in the United Kingdom; or
        (b) both parents are being admitted on the same occasion for settlement; or
        (c) one parent is present and settled in the United Kingdom and the other is being admitted on the same occasion for settlement; or
        (d) one parent is present and settled in the United Kingdom or being admitted on the same occasion for settlement and the other parent is dead; or
        (e) one parent is present and settled in the United Kingdom or being admitted on the same occasion for settlement and has had sole responsibility for the child's upbringing; or
        (f) one parent or a relative is present and settled in the United Kingdom or being admitted on the same occasion for settlement and there are serious and compelling family or other considerations which make exclusion of the child undesirable and suitable arrangements have been made for the child's care; and
        (ii) is under the age of 18; and
        (iii) is not leading an independent life, is unmarried and is not a civil partner, and has not formed an independent family unit; and
        (iv) can, and will, be accommodated adequately by the parent, parents or relative the child is seeking to join without recourse to public funds in accommodation which the parent, parents or relative the child is seeking to join, own or occupy exclusively; and
        (v) can, and will, be maintained adequately by the parent, parents, or relative the child is seeking to join, without recourse to public funds; and
        (vi) holds a valid United Kingdom entry clearance for entry in this capacity.
        Para 317-
        317. The requirements to be met by a person seeking indefinite leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom as dependent relative of a person present and settled in the United Kingdom are that the person:
        (i) is related to a person present and settled in the United Kingdom in one of the following ways:

        (f) the son, daughter, sister, brother, uncle or aunt over the age of 18 if living alone outside the United Kingdom in the most exceptional compassionate circumstances and mainly dependent financially on relatives settled in the United Kingdom; and
        (ii) is joining or accompanying a person who is present and settled in the United Kingdom or who is on the same occasion being admitted for settlement; and
        (iii) is financially wholly or mainly dependent on the relative present and settled in the United Kingdom; and
        (iv) can, and will, be accommodated adequately, together with any dependants, without recourse to public funds, in accommodation which the sponsor owns or occupies exclusively; and
        (iva) can, and will, be maintained adequately, together with any dependants, without recourse to public funds; and
        (v) has no other close relatives in his own country to whom he could turn for financial support; and
        (vi) if seeking leave to enter, holds a valid United Kingdom entry clearance for entry in this capacity


        Normally visitors cannot switch the category. I strongly advice you to take legal advice before you submit your application.
