FOI Requests, Home Office

Georgia,

Please be aware that we have decided to handle your correspondence of 6 December outside the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. This is because it does not meet the criteria for a Freedom of Information request, as it does not ask for recorded information.

Below is a link to the ICO guidance for the criteria for valid requests under the Act:
https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...

We will provide an answer to your query, but it will be answer outside of the provisions of the Act.  You should expect to receive a response in due course.

Thank you,

P. Zebedee

UK Visas and Immigration,

Dear Georgia,

Thank you for your enquiry dated 6th December 2018 regarding your query.
 
Our response to your enquiry will involve asking for or disclosing your
personal data.  We cannot do this via ‘WhatDoTheyKnow.com’, which is a
public website.  I would therefore be grateful if you would let us have
your personal e-mail to which we can reply. 
 
Alternatively, if you would like to contact us directly, you can at the
following address:

Please also refer to our website for guidance by using this link:

We provide this e-mail response whenever the enquiry is “case specific”.

Please note the onus is upon individual customers to ensure that they
satisfy the requirements set out in the guidance material. The guidance
material accompanies each and every application form. UK Visas and
Immigration is not able to give, indicate or advise upon the outcome of
any such application prior to it being given full and careful
consideration.

Directing you to the guidance material is the only advice we can give you.
If you need any further help you should seek independent immigration
advice. Immigration advisers can help you with immigration matters,
including completion of forms and representing you at a tribunal. The
Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) regulates
immigration advisers, which mean they must meet certain standards.
