Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for your email of 23 April.

Please see the caseworker’s response below:


We could refund the I H S however this would then render the current
application invalid and it will fall for rejection.


Please could you confirm if the applicant want to proceed with this as it
will cease the progression of their current application.


We hope this information is helpful.


Yours faithfully,


UK Visas and Immigration
