This visa category was closed in April 2018 by the government and a lot of the applications by Tier 1 (General) migrants were refused their ILR due to minor tax errors under Paragraph 322(5) of the immigration rules. However, concerns have been raised in the Parliament that applications were being wrongly refused due to the applicants’ minor tax errors.

If you currently have a pending application for indefinite leave to remain as a Tier 1 (General) Migrant that was submitted on or before 5th April 2018 or have received a refusal decision in the last 14 days or have an appeal pending with the Asylum and Immigration First-tier Tribunal, please consult with our immigration solicitor immediately for further advice.
