Awan-Legal : Hi
Awan-Legal : The 10 yea ban is completely wrong as an overstayer who left the UK voluntarily at his or her own expense is banned for 1 or 2 years.
Awan-Legal : The 10 year ban is for deception cases or those removed from the UK at public expense.
Awan-Legal : Sorry the above should state one year ban for an overstayer who left voluntarily.
Awan-Legal : You should print and rely on the following when submitting a new application and explain that you are only eligible for a one year ban and it is outside the law for them to impose a 10 year ban:

Awan-Legal : I would also suggest putting in a formal complaint to the following email enclosing the above link and a copy of your previous refusal as evidence that they have acted 'ultra vires' (outside their powers) and unlawfully by banning you for ten years.
Awan-Legal : The 1 month endorsement should suffice as a reason for them to disregard the ban as the authorities have accepted that you can enter the UK within this time and the ban does not therefore apply to you. (enclose a copy of the appeal determination/decision).
Awan-Legal : Good luck and kindly click accept on my answer. Please request me again should you have any further questions and I will be happy to help.
