1: The situation

Mike, a South African National wanted to visit the UK to meet his newborn nephew.

However, he was concerned as he previously had a spent a conviction several years before.

He was worried that any application he would make would be rejected by the Home Office, based on this conviction.

Mike did not want his application to fail, so had called IAS – this was at the recommendation of his brother, whom we had previously helped to obtain Indefinite Leave to Remain.

2: How IAS helped

Our lawyer understood Mike’s concerns and drew upon their previous experiences to make a plan of action.

Mike’s conviction was spent and was considered a minor offence – he was not sure which documents he had that could prove this clearly.

Our lawyer requested that he scan all of the documents he had received from the courts. With this information, our lawyer arranged the documents in a clear and logical manner and made reference to them in a strong Letter of Representation.

3: The outcome

Mike submitted his application and, within a few weeks, received his decision – it had been a success.

With his new Family Visit Visa in hand, he made no delay in travelling to the UK to meet his family and his nephew.
