1: The situation

Luke was a Singaporean doctor who, after 10 years in the UK, was faced with deportation due to a complication with the Home Office which meant his visa expired before he could apply again.

Immediately, Luke came to IAS for advice and was seen by one of our most experienced immigration lawyers.

2: How IAS helped

His lawyer listened carefully to Luke’s case and discovered that were he to go back to Singapore, his degree in medicine would not be recognised and he would have to start his training again. After building his case, Luke’s lawyer defended him in court and clearly showed the tribunal that Luke deserved to stay in the UK on Human Rights grounds.

3: The outcome

The tribunal decided to overturn the decision by the Home Office and Luke was granted Indefinite Leave to Remain. He was then able to finish his training and become a fully qualified NHS doctor. Luke intends to apply for British Citizenship in the future and is sure he will be returning to IAS for assistance.
