She was ill-advised by her previous immigration adviser, who failed to update INZ with her changed circumstance, which made her case officer suspicious. When the adviser had a PPI (Partially Prejudicial Information) letter from the case officer, the adviser did not respond to the request competently, resulting in her case visa being declined.
During the consultation, Simon outlined what went wrong and offered what he could do for her. She engaged with us as soon as she received our letter of engagement. We worked with her to prepare and submit her Section 61 application which was successful, and INZ granted her a visitor visa (6 months).
It is usual for clients to be worried and even give up, but Simon was confident winning the case. They worked together to respond to each of the PPIs, and finally, her Partnership based Work Visa was granted for two years (not one year).
Although INZ will introduce a new work visa policy and a new SMC resident visa policy, there will be no change to the current Partner Visa policy. If you are in a similar situation, please consider contacting us for consultation.
How you prepare documents and approach to the requests by your case officer will make a huge difference. We have been quite successful in many partnership-based Visa Applications. Before you decide to engage with us for your case, please test whether your case would succeed via our service below.
