Human Rights and Other Applications

This category covers other visa-related applications. These include:

  1. Discretionary Leave: The major purpose of this route is to maintain a just, resolute, and well-organised system of immigration where individuals who do not fulfil the requirements are asked, in general terms, to leave the UK while also carefully considering individuals in unusual and sympathetic situations who could warrant discretionary leave. 
  2. Subject Access Request: This application, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, grants a person the right to know what information about them is held by the authorities. Information on why the information is held and to whom it is given can also be made available.
  3. Returning Residence Visa UK: An individual who was previously settled in the UK on Indefinite Leave to Remain and has either misplaced their documentation or has been abroad for two years or more can apply for a Returning Resident Visa in order to return and settle. 
  4. Transfer of Conditions Application (TOC): If an individual’s passport expires, they might be able to transfer their visa to a new passport. This is dependent on the place of application (within or outside the UK) and the status of the visa held by the individual. 
  5. No Time Limit Application (NTL): This application is for individuals who have been issued indefinite leave to remain (ILR) in the UK but seek to have their status confirmed on a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP); or have changed their name, gender, or nationality; or the date of birth contained in their document is not correct.
  6. Immigration Bail Application: Individuals who are held by the UKBA for reasons concerning immigration can make an application for bail, after which they might be released on the basis that certain conditions are met.
