Fahad is an Iranian refugee who has lived in the UK for over 10 years. He applied for what should have been a routine visa renewal in 2017. The Home Office’s unexplained delay in processing his application has meant that he has found it impossible to look for work, study or travel for the last 2 and a half years. He was even prevented from collecting mail from his local sorting office without the right ID.
Pauline Nandoo, SDCAS Director says: ‘Fahad’s case is not the only example of Home Office delays causing extraordinary and unnecessary hardship and stress. But we are delighted that we were able to help him secure such powerful and effective support’.
