Our client was from Mauritius and had been living in the UK for 10 years on an extended student visa. However, for one year during this time he had been living abroad without a UK visa to his name. The Settlement Visa requires the applicant to have been continuously living in the UK lawfully for 10 years. This year break in our client’s history meant it was particularly difficult for him to apply for settlement. Adeeb Chowdhry and his team worked exceptionally hard on this case, ensuring that the case they put forward to the Home Office was strong and water-tight. Needless to say our client was awarded his settlement visa with a right to remain in the UK.
