ULLAH v SSHD [2022] EWCA Civ 550


The appellant Mr Ullah (“A”) was a national of Pakistan who appealed a decision to the Court of Appeal against a refusal to grant him permission to apply for judicial review. A had sought a judicial review of a refusal to grant him a tier 2 employment visa having been previously granted a visa by the same employer. The Secretary of State in dealing with his application accepted that administrative mistakes had been made in considering the employer’s certificate of sponsorship but that the delay on over 9 months in reconsidering the application was not unlawful. The Court of Appeal in dismissing the appeal considered that the A was not entitled be informed that that the employer was being investigated or had withdrawn their sponsorship and that the delay was not unlawful as the Secretary of State was entitled to investigate the sponsor.

Alex Burrett was instructed by Mr Ullah on a direct access basis
