EFIS 45, July 2006 : Immigration - Applications

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

The Immigration (Leave to Remain) (Prescribed Forms and Procedures) Regulations 2006 revoked and replaced the Immigration (Leave to Remain) (Prescribed Forms and Procedures) (No. 2) Regulations 2005 on 22nd June.

However, transitional provisions in regulation 16(2) expressly allowed existing forms to be submitted “…if made within 21 days of the Regulations coming into force.”

In particular, these 2006 Regulations have added new questions to the official BUS, FLR(M), FLR(O), FLR(S), FLR(SEGS), FLR(FT_WISS), SET(F), SET(M) and SET(O) forms to reflect changes to the Immigration Rules concerning certain categories of applicants.

The Immigration and Nationality Directorate of the Home Office has also updated the non-prescribed applications submitted on the COA, ELR, NTL and TOC forms.

Immigration practitioners can use the amended forms on receipt of this information.
