Question from azdigit, Why was my application for Entry Clearance as a Skilled Worker Child (Health and Care) Migrant refused?
Answer from AI:
Your application for Entry Clearance as a Skilled Worker Child (Health and Care) Migrant was refused because it did not meet the requirements of paragraph CHI 3.2 of the Immigration Rules. This rule requires that both of your parents either apply at the same time as you or already have permission to be in the UK, with some exceptions.
Understanding Paragraph CHI 3.2
Paragraph CHI 3.2 of the Immigration Rules sets out the conditions under which a child can apply for entry clearance. The rule states that both parents must either be applying at the same time as the child or already have permission to be in the UK. There are exceptions to this rule, such as if the parent applying is the sole surviving parent or has sole responsibility for the child’s upbringing, or if the other parent is a British citizen or has a right to enter or stay in the UK without restriction.
In your case, while your mother has been granted permission to enter the UK as a Skilled Worker, your father is not applying and does not have permission to enter or remain in the UK. This is why your application was refused.
What can I do now?
If you believe that your circumstances fit one of the exceptions in paragraph CHI 3.2, you may want to consider reapplying and providing evidence to support your claim. For example, if your father is a British citizen or has a right to enter or stay in the UK without restriction, you could provide evidence of this.
Alternatively, if there are serious and compelling reasons why you should be granted entry clearance to stay with your mother, you could provide evidence of these reasons. This could include things like medical reports or letters from professionals who know your situation.
Please note that this is general advice and may not apply to your specific circumstances. It is always recommended to consult with a legal professional for personalized advice.
