Fees for immigration and nationality applications are expensive and continue to rise every year.
Unsurprisingly, not everyone can afford the fees to regularise their immigration status or to renew their Leave to Remain in the UK. Fortunately, in certain cases, fee waivers for immigration applications, nationality applications for minors and applications made outside the UK can be requested. Please get in touch if you require assistance with your immigration application or if you require a fee waiver.
The “no recourse to public funds” condition is imposed on some “visas” to enter or remain in the UK with the effect of prohibiting the person from accessing public funds. A person who claims public funds despite such a condition is committing a criminal offence and his future application can be refused on that basis.
The good news is that it is possible in certain circumstances to make a request to the Home Office for the restriction of No Recourse to Public Funds to be lifted.
Please contact us to discuss your case. We have experience assisting people to apply for fee waivers or to request the restriction of no access to benefits to be lifted.
