Daniel & Kelsey

“I satisfy the requirements, yet they rejected my wife’s application.”

Daniel is a British citizen, living in China with his wife. They have been living there together for five years, and have been married for one.

Daniel is keen to return to the UK to be closer to his family. However they have had two UK settlement visas refused already. In both cases they found ECO cited incorrect immigration rules to refuse them, even though Daniel is confident, that having used a well-reputed London lawyer, they did meet all the requirements, including financial.

They have appealed the result of both applications, however it takes over nine months for any result.

Despite now also meeting the savings requirements, Daniel is not confident the application, third time round, would be processed correctly either. So he is considering using his rights as an EU citizen.

Yet another British citizen forced to leave his home just to live with his family.
