A generation hung out to dry

Following the scandal that has surrounded the Government’s treatment of the Windrush generation, the Home office has finally taken preliminary steps in setting out a framework that would assist undocumented long term commonwealth residents in securing their permanent residence status in the UK.

To this effect, the Home Office has confirmed that it will

  1. waive the citizenship fee for anyone in the Windrush generation who wishes to apply for citizenship

  2. waive the requirement to carry out a Knowledge of Language and Life in the UK test

  3. set out a right to return for those who have been removed to their country of origin

  4. set up a new scheme to compensate people who have suffered loss

At Montpelier, we can assist you with your application for permanent residence / citizenship and also discuss your potential claims for compensation against the Home Office.

Please call our immigration team to discuss this further.
