Al-Azad (appellant) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (respondent)

Tuesday 16 April 2024

Appeal against the decision of the Upper Tribunal Immigration & Asylum Chamber promulgated on 19 June 2023.

The appellant is a national of Bangladesh who entered the UK on 16 February 2009 as a student and subsequently extended his leave as a student and then switched to a Tier 1 Highly Skilled visa. On 17 January 2013 he applied for further Leave to Remain as a Tier 1 Entrepreneur; he later varied this application on 21 December 2018 on the basis of his claim to have accrued 10 years lawful residence. On 28 May 2021 the respondent refused the application, and it is this decision which was appealed in the First Tier Tribunal. The Upper Tribunal upheld the decision of the First Tier Tribunal.
