Deadline for One-off payment (Refund) application is 20/05/2010

Did You Have To Apply For One More Extension Under Old HSMP Due To Change From 4 Years to 5 Years For ILR?

You may be eligible for requesting refund / one-off payment from the Home Office, if you are already in the UK under old HSMP or settled (i.e. got ILR) after completing 5 years stay in the UK on the basis of old HSMP which was applied / approved before 03 April 2006. You may be eligible for refund / one-off payment if you have been required to apply for second extension.

This was because you may have got initial Leave / Visa for one year, which was further extended for 3 years and then you had to apply for one more extension as the ILR rules changed from 4 to 5 years.

If you fall in this category, you may be eligible for refund, however the deadline for requesting the refund is 20 May 2010 and we feel you must act now and apply for a refund immediately.

You will find the form on Home Office web site or you may Contact Us or send us an email and we will be happy to send the form to you.
