Fee Remissions for Applications under the UK Immigration Rules

The request was successful.

Dear UK Border Agency,

I have made this same request to yourselves in Jan 2013, which has gone unanswered...

I request for a copy of all guidance, all internal memos and a copy of any letters held by UKBA in relation to fee remissions involving an application for a non-eea national to remain within the united kingdom.

I request information held by UKBA in relation to who would qualify for these fee remissions.

I also request information held by ukba in relation to how a person would apply for leave to remain within the united kingdom along with the fee remission for the application.

Yours faithfully,

Wayne Pearsall

Dear Freedom Of Information Team ( IND ),

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

given your response to my fresh FOI request in relation to a fee remission, I see that UKBA now view this request as a valid FOI request.

Please therefore explain why the internal review, and response to my freedom of information request dated 30-jan-13 was not conducted?

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...
the text of my original request being:
--------------
http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-...
further to the information posted on your website (above link)

can you confirm the following:
my wife made an application to remain in the uk which was refused
citing that there is no reason that I and our child could not move
to indonesia. ETC... (contrary to the right to a private/family
life ETC)..

however, should we apply again as a married couple. would this
application be treated on the new rules or old rules. would we be
subject to the 18600 income for myself, plus 5-6 grand extra for
the fact we have two children (both of which are british)...

Also,

what fee remissions are possible for an application. my solicitor
informed me that there are possible fee waivers/reduction in
exceptional cases - esp. in cases involving article 8 of the human
rights.

how would one proceed with an application FLR(M) if such a fee was
not paid. Please can you send a copy of all guidance given to UKBA
officials which deals with fee remissions ETC.

In addition to this, Please forward a copy of all information you
hold on the Judicial review process for a failed application for an
EEA family permit.
-------------

Obviously, i have since found out that the EX1 clause, can be relied upon to remove the 18600 income requirement to sponsor... this information is held by ukba and was not provided to myself. in addition to other information...

pretty much asks for the information requested in this particular request - and therefore this request should of been answered already...

In addition to this, Please forward a copy of all information you
hold on the Judicial review process for a failed application for an
EEA family permit
------
Do ukba hold information in regards to the judicial review process? Surely they do, with the number of times they have been through it...

if the information isnt available to provide, either because it is exempt, or not held etc, then ukba must by law put this in writing...

I once again remind you that this request was posted far more than 20 days ago... with no reply
You can view the original request here, and also see the fact that Internal Review was requested by myself, to which no response has been issued.

Dear Wayne Pearsall,

Thank you for your email correspondence of 8 April where you have requested information about fees for immigration and nationality applications. This falls to be dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The fees for immigration and nationality applications are specified by Statutory Instruments. Published Immigration and Nationality fees regulations including explanatory memoranda can be viewed electronically via the National Archives website at

www.legislation.gov.uk/2013?title=immigr....

Guidance notes and qualification criteria to assist potential applicants with making a successful application for leave to remain in the UK is published and available on our website at www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/.

You also ask for internal memos and other information held by us in relation to fee remissions involving an application for a non EEA national to remain in the UK.
Section 1(3) of the Freedom of Information Act provides that a public authority need not comply with a request for information unless any further information reasonably required to identify and locate the information is supplied. I am unclear about the exact scope of the information in which you are interested. To ensure that we provide you with the right information, it would help if you are able to clarify your request in some way. This might include, for instance, an explanation of what you mean by fee remissions and the particular application route you are interested in.

When you provide this information we will aim to send you a full response to your request within twenty working days of its receipt. I look forward to hearing from you shortly. However, please note that if I do not receive appropriate clarification of your request within three months from the date of this letter, I will consider this request to be closed.

Yours sincerely,

FOI Team

Dear Freedom Of Information Team ( IND ),

further to my FOI request "Fee Remissions for Applications under the UK Immigration Rules"

I really do not see where the clarification is required.

As such, I feel that UKBA are abusing the terms of the FOI Act 2000 and using irrelevant get out clauses to extend or even kill a valid FOI request. As such, just like my other FOI requests, on this basis I am therefore issuing a formal complaint to the ICO for them to make a decision notice.

My request was clear. UKBA either hold guidance, etc or they don't.

I await your response.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Freedom Of Information Team ( IND ),

So let me see...
--------april 10th:
Dear Wayne Pearsall

Re:27105 Fee Remissions for Applications under the UK Immigration Rules (156489)

Thank you for your recent e mail concerning the above matter. We are dealing with your enquiry and will respond shortly.

Regards

FOI Team
----------- < at this point you can clearly see that the requested scope is uk immigration rules. *note: EEA regulations do not fall within this group... UK immigration rules refer to the Immigration Regulations 1971...

There are only two sets of legislation in the UK that I am aware of: 1) Immigration Regs 2) EEA Regs

EEA regs are european law... therefore UK rules would refer to the laws which are regulated by the UK...

The other clarification requested was what was meant by "Fee Remission"...
Now lets take an educated response onto this clarification.

Dictionary definition of Remission:
http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition...
Definition of remission

noun
[mass noun]
1. the cancellation of a debt, ****charge****, or penalty:

Does that clarify for you...

My initial request was clearly defined properly.

However, it appears that the staff in the home office have problems grasping the concept of the English language.

In any case, my further message of the 11 April 2013 provided yet further clarification, where I actually quoted my previous request to yourself.

The fact that I mentioned the £18,600 earnings requirement clearly outlines that the request related to the UK's Immigration Regulations 1971, as the EEA regulations impose no financial requirements upon a member of the EEA ETC.

Even more detailed than this is the fact that my message on the 11th stated the following:
--------

what fee remissions are possible for an application. my solicitor
informed me that there are possible fee waivers/reduction in
exceptional cases - esp. in cases involving article 8 of the human
rights.

how would one proceed with an application FLR(M) if such a fee was
not paid. Please can you send a copy of all guidance given to UKBA
officials which deals with fee remissions ETC.
--------

Now, as we are ALL aware... Which application route does an FLR(m) form relate to... UK's Immigration Regs obviously.

Co-incidentally, I am aware that the UK Gov expects human rights applications to be filed via the FLR(o) / FLR(m) application.

Therefore, Please explain why UKBA/ The home office expect to invoke the clause Sec 1(3) on every request as not properly defined, despite a very detailed request...

As such, this is another request which I shall be filing with the ICO as a complaint about UKBA / The home office trying to fail to provide information requested siting unreasonable reasons for such.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall

Wayne Pearsall

Dear Freedom Of Information Team ( IND ),

After viewing the response to the Just Legal Group's FOI request: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...

From Shola Akinyamoju at the Charging Programme of the UK Border Agency (Tel:
0208 760 2716 or email: Shola.Akinyamoju [at] homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk)
[amazing the information published by the UKBA]

She states:
"Where the regulations specify a fee, an application is not valid unless it is accompanied by the specified fee. Guidance is provided on our website about each application process and the requirements for making a valid application. This guidance also explains how to make an application in circumstances where exceptions apply or where a fee may be waived."

Can you please direct me to the webpage on your website which highlights this information. Legally the response should of done this... if information is publically accessible the location of it should be made public.

Also note: my FOI request for this same information is still being waited on (so the fact is: you have not replied promptly, considering you have responded to somebody elses request on the same information already... and still failed to respond to my request?

so: considering that the FOI Act is "Applicant Blind"... surely there should be a strict date order for replies....

Dear UK Border Agency,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of UK Border Agency's handling of my FOI request 'Fee Remissions for Applications under the UK Immigration Rules'.

As I filed this request back in Janurary, I am well aware as per ICO guidelines that the Home Office cannot deem it to be vexatious on the grounds of "repeated or simular" requests for two reasons...
1) It is not a repeated request (although I have emphasised on many occasions that you have still failed to respond)
2) The home office have failed to act within the legislative 20 working day time limit.

I am still awaiting both my response, and my internal review to be conducted.

Dear Wayne

You are going around in circles - something I have done for seven years in this country with regulatory bodies. They have no power and warble on about what your options are. Forget it all. Get a form from your local County Court and take the UKBA to court for breaching the Freedom of Information act. It costs 80 pounds I think, but you will claim these cost back. You can also write a letter to the UKBA telling them that you are going to take them to court if they do not answer your question properly - tell them that you intend claiming costs. I have done it three times, and they capitulate each time. The first time they sent a 600 pound an hour Barrister to court to represent them, but the Judge told him to take a hike and give me my information! As I said - if you wish to message me - I am happy to help. The internal reviews and everything else are merely a stalling tactic for them.

CA Purkis left an annotation ()

Whatever you do - don't bother calling the Immigration Enquiry Bureau - they do not have a clue what they are talking about - I have now taped three conversations with one question and they all have a different answer - these are the people that give out life-changing information!!!!

Dear Freedom Of Information Team ( IND ),

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...
Your Ref: 27758
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...
Your Ref: 27105

All communications in regards to this request are online at the above two url's...

So answer the question... Can you really state, and expect a court to believe that you are unsure of the exact scope of information requested?

With me mentioning the specific form to use (FLR(m)) on april 11th. - and previously on Jan 30th...

ICO case reference Number(s) FS50490229 and FS50502471

A letter was issued to you, and still Martin Riddle claims the request was not recieved... The ICO was in DIRECT COMMUNICATION WITH YOURSELVES...

I quote an email from the WDTK team which has been forwarded onto yourselves, along with Mail Server logs... (This email was sent to myself by the WDTK team)
---
Your initial request on 30 January 2013 was sent to:

[email address]

You then had a response from [email address] and
your reply of the 31st of January was sent as a reply to that, ie. to
[email address]

Your email of the 18th of March was sent to
[email address] the reply to that on the
same day was from [email address] Your reply to that
on the 28th of March was sent to
[email address] and their response on
the 28th of March was from [email address]

Your message of the 28th of May was sent to
[email address]
Their response of the 28th of May came from [email address]

Their response of 7th June came from [email address]
---

And further clarification from myself:
----
I'll forward the info onto the ICO.

Can you confirm what the current FOIA Address is which is used to send FOI requests to the Home Office / UKBA now, via WDTK.com

Cheers,
Wayne
----

To which, i'm sure you can guess the response...
---
The address previously in use, and still in use for follow up requests, is:
[email address]

FOI requests to the UKBA have been handled via the Home Office's FOI team for some time.
---

Therefore, noting that all of my request's have been sent to [email address]

and I have provided yourselves with mailserver logs showing that you did infact recieve the communications from myself.

If your team LOST THE COMMUNICATIONS WHICH CONTAINED MY PERSONAL INFORMATION...

1) I EXPECT A REPORT FILING WITH THE ICO AS PER YOUR STATUTORY DUTY!!! - I also expect you to investigate where my information has ended up...

2) You still have a duty to respond, as the request was filed, and infact your team responded to a number of request's which made reference to the very same request! (even citing the request text to yourselves in April 2013! - second reference nmber above)

A full detailed communication log is available online on the WDTK website.

A full detailed timeline is also available online on the WDTK website.

Also note: Considering that your team replied to the very email address provided in the request 27758... it goes to show the email address used was valid...

as otherwise answer the very simple question of:
How on earth did you gain the response email address to actually provide a response to my request...

Therefore, your time complaint "review" has clearly not examined the request in full... as clearly the scope was defined... VERY CLEARLY...

You requested the following:
1) What do I mean by immigration rules
2) what do i mean by fee

(Quote:
---------------
You also ask for internal memos and other information held by us in relation to fee remissions involving an application for a non EEA national to remain in the UK.
Section 1(3) of the Freedom of Information Act provides that a public authority need not comply with a request for information unless any further information reasonably required to identify and locate the information is supplied. *****I am unclear about the exact scope of the information in which you are interested.***** To ensure that we provide you with the right information, it would help if you are able to clarify your request in some way.

*****This might include, for instance, an explanation of what you mean by fee remissions and the particular application route you are interested in.*****
-------------

I answered clearly:
1) "at this point you can clearly see that the requested scope is uk immigration rules. *note: EEA regulations do not fall within this group... UK immigration rules refer to the Immigration Regulations 1971..."

"EEA regs are european law... therefore UK rules would refer to the laws which are regulated by the UK..."

2)---------
The other clarification requested was what was meant by "Fee Remission"...
Now lets take an educated response onto this clarification.
Dictionary definition of Remission:
http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition...
Definition of remission
noun
[mass noun]
1. the cancellation of a debt, ****charge****, or penalty:
----------------

So, would the clarification you still require be what I mean by Fee?...

Because as you cited the text:
"The fees for immigration and nationality applications are specified by Statutory Instruments. Published Immigration and Nationality fees regulations including explanatory memoranda can be viewed electronically via the National Archives website at ..."

I assumed, as you had used the word "fees" for your response, the issue you were having was identifying the meaning of "remission" (which I clearly highlighed - as quoted - as being the cancellation of a charge) - but Fee obviously refers to
"Noun
1.A payment made for professional advice or services."

With an average income in excess of 20grand, I would of assumed your staff could of at least passed basic GCSE English?
- heck, the English Language test expects an applicant to be able to speak English to be able to apply for a visa... So why have double standards when even the staff within the Home Office cannot grasp the simple language used within my request... Wouldn't such amount to discrimination?

What language would you like me to submit my further FOI requests to yourselves in? I understand that I am (by law) allowed to submit a written question to yourselves in ANY LANGUAGE of an EEA Member State and expect a response in that same language...

Would you prefer:
English, Finnish, French, German, Any of these would be fine...
or, would you prefer one of the other EEA languages...
I know plenty of people who can translate into another language... if it would make it simplier for your staff to grasp the scope of my questions...

Or would you prefer that I send a definition list of every word in the English Dictionary to yourselves (despite one already being in a reasonably accessible location to yourselves.

If however you are unsure of the location, I suggest you open your prefered WWW (World Wide Web) Browser (A web browser is a software application for retrieving, presenting and traversing information resources on the WWW)...

Type the URL (Universal Resource Locator) "http://google.co.uk" into the address bar of your prefered application (Internet Explorer, Firefox, AOL, ETC [i'm sure you get my drift, right?])...

Once you arrive at google, in the "Search" box, type in "define:*TEXT*" and hit "Search" (or your enter key on your keyboard).
*TEXT* would obviously refer to the word you are unsure about, (In this case, Fee / Remission)...

If you prefer not to use Google, there are many other websites online providing the same service, IE:
http://dictionary.com
http://thesaurus.com

Kiitos,

Yours sincerely,

Dear Freedom Of Information Team ( IND ),

27758 / 27105

Also, lets be clear, no clarification was EVER needed for the scope of my request...

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/policy...
Note the words on the URL? "Immigration Rules"... (I even added the clarification of "UK" obviously refering to the United Kingdom

We can dive straight into your own "Policy" ( http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/policy... )

Direct quote:----

Immigration Rules

The Home Secretary has made changes in the Rules laid down by him as to the practice to be followed in the administration of the Immigration Acts for regulating entry into and the stay of persons in the United Kingdom and contained in the statement laid before Parliament on 23 March 1990 (HC 251) (as amended). This statement contains the Rules as changed and replaces the provisions of HC 251 (as amended).

2. Immigration Officers, Entry Clearance Officers and all staff of the Home Office Immigration and Nationality Directorate will carry out their duties without regard to the race, colour or religion of persons seeking to enter or remain in the United Kingdom and in compliance with the provisions of the Human Rights Act 1998.

3. In these Rules words importing the masculine gender include the feminine unless the contrary intention appears.

Implementation and transitional provisions

4. These Rules come into effect on 1 October 1994 and will apply to all decisions taken on or after that date save that any application made before 1 October 1994 for entry clearance, leave to enter or remain or variation of leave to enter or remain other than an application for leave by a person seeking asylum shall be decided under the provisions of HC 251, as amended, as if these Rules had not been made.

Considering that UKBA / The Home Office make direct reference to a particular set of "Rules" as the "Immigration Rules" (as quoted by myself also)...

Dear UK Border Agency,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of UK Border Agency's handling of my FOI request 'Fee Remissions for Applications under the UK Immigration Rules'.

Ref: 27758 / 27105

So, here we are... I will actually easy the workload slightly of the FOI team.

Ollie Carlisle (Rob Whitemans Secetary) has sent myself an email today outlining a number of points...

the WDTK website prefer not to have personal information published, so I will post only the RELEVANT INFORMATION...
-------
Waiving the fee on human rights applications

As you stated, it is possible to be exempted from having to pay a fee for a human rights based application. This can be done using Appendix 1 to Form FLR(O), available here: http://www.ind.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecon... .
-------
This information is not on the UKBA website... It is stored on the IND website (IND is now defunct, yet new updated information is added to that website?...)

So after reading the appendix 1 refered to, I notice the following line of text:
-----
Appendix 1 FLR(O)
Request for Fee Exemption from applicant who is destitute seeking to apply for leave to remain on the basis of Article 8 right to respect for family or private life under Appendix FM or paragraph 276ADE
-----

Excemption / Remissions... same difference really... (quite amazing, considering that I also refered to the excemption as a "remission" to Ollie, and he appeared to be in a position to find the correct information for myself within a week. (for his part: I do believe he acted, and responded promptly...)

However, as noted, this information provided does not satisfy my FOI request to yourselves, as the remaining information requested is still outstanding...

I do hope that by providing this response to yourselves I actually aid in retrieval of the information requested. :)

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

Dear Wayne Pearsall,

Thank you for your below email.

Unfortunately, you have not provided the clarification to your request which we requested on the 22 and 24 of April. I have attached our emails for your reference.

If you wish to clarify your request, you should identify the information you are searching for as clearly as possible as this will assist us in considering your request. Providing general comments and opinion regarding our need to clarify a request is not necessary and does not add any value; more importantly it does not assist us in answering a request.

Once you have provided the clarification, in the format requested, we shall be able to consider your request further.

I look forward to receiving your clarification.

Yours sincerely,

Dear UK Border Agency,

PAUL,

I have read, and given clarification...

You asked:
1) What do i mean by fee remissions
2) What application route.

BOTH of these questions have been answered.

IF you need further information, then clearly state so...

HOWEVER, Ollie Carlisle didn't appear to have such difficaulties supplying information related to this request when asked (and did so in less than seven (calander) days of myself asking him directly!)

Your argument is not valid that you require clarification.

NO SUCH CLARIFICATION IS REQUIRED.

I WISH TO KNOW ABOUT FEE EXCEMPTIONS ON ALL IMMIGRATION RULES CASES.
I WISH TO KNOW WHO QUALIFIES FOR ALL EXCEMPTIONS
It really isnt difficault.

Dear Wayne Pearsall,

Further to your below email. I understand that you do not consider it necessary to provide further clarification. However, as you are raising general questions, I thought that it would be helpful to direct you to our previous advice.

Where there is a fee, it is listed in the regulations. Where there is an exemption from paying the fee and the basis for qualifying for the exemption, this is published in the regulations also, alongside the fee.

I have provided the link to the regulations again for your reference.

To be fair ... I wasnt sure whether it was flr m or o. And as explained. Flr m was the 'reasonable' guess for them. Which Andy has accepted they failed upon taKing over for times longer than they should of.

But he has provided the information (even if reluctantly). I'm not so fused. As he Admits they did wrong. But he also states that echr was clear so outlines flr o.

No matter how diary coated the release is. ... its still a release. Although exempt from sec 21 now. ...
