This is a long one but I shall try to simply as I dont know what else to try or do. My son Ryan, born in South Africa, in 1985, arrived in the UK in 2004 on a working,holiday visa. and is living with us, his parents. (2004-2006) He did a degree (BA H Business with HRM) at the University of Greenwich in the UK from 2006-2009, for which we thought he could then apply for the points based system. However, Global Visa said he could not and so he went onto theTeir1 (-study-study work) visa. However, that is up 3rd Dec. 2011. Now! we dont know what else to do. My son has never broken any of his visas. He is hard working and earns £30k as an Area Manager for a facility company. He is independant and is saving to purchase his own property,therefore has no recourse for using the govt. money. He just wants to get on with his life in the UK. He has no one to return to in South Africa. My other son lives here and is married. I have my British Citizenship as I was born in Kenya in 1962 under the British Colony, my husband has his British citizenship as we have been married for 33yrs. All these visas and degrees has cost us over £50K! We too would like to settle but can only be with peace of mind,once our son is sorted too and all these expenses are out the way. Please can you advise us on what visa my son can apply for ?, or if he can he apply for indefinite leave to remain as he has been in the UK since 2004-2011. Looking at the immigration website is so confusing. Kindly advise.
FYI- My grandfather was born in Yorkshire, my mother was born in Seychelles also a British Colony. Perhaps there is another way of him getting Citizenship.
You have now confused me. I paid £31.00 and you have decided that the NEW price should be set at £29.00 !!!!, as this now requires more in depth details. What do you require!!! £29.00 or should I request my £31.00 refund and pay you £29.00
Yes, I was born in 1962 in Kenya.
Yes, I hold a British Passport with dual nationality, being South Africa.
My father was born in Seychelles. My father was Seychellois and became a South African citizen when we moved to SA in 1962.
My husband came to the UK in 2004 and then he became naturialized in 2007, My husband was resident in South Africa,where we married. We both now live in the UK.
Please dont hesitate to ask further questions.
So, is that correct the fact I was born in Kenya in 1962 and because it was under the British rule that there is a possibibility that my son could get it through me?.
I did not want to apply and then go through the appeal process as there is not much time as his expires in Dec.
