Revised policy guidance following Pankina judgments
22 November 2010
The UK Border Agency has today published revised policy guidance for applicants under the points-based system whose applications were refused solely because they did not meet the maintenance (funds) requirement. If they made their application within a certain time period, they can ask us to review our decision to refuse their application.
You can find the revised guidance under 'Related documents on the right side of this page. It replaces the guidance previously published on this website on 23 July 2010.
If you have previously requested a review of our decision, but we refused it solely because you did not have valid permission to stay in the UK when you requested the review, we will automatically review the decision. If you have not received an updated decision by 31 January 2011, you should contact the address given in the revised policy guidance.
The Refusals based on the maintenance (funds) requirement page contains more information about whether you can request a review, and how to make a request.
