  • In my view, the issue of the incorporation of paragraph EX1 to cover situations where applicants do not meet the provisions of the Immigration Rules was not adequately addressed. There seemed to be a suggestion that a person on a visit visa could not rely on paragraph EX1 because they do not meet the eligibility criteria of the Immigration Rules. My view is opposite. If an applicant does not meet one or more of the requirements under the Immigration Rules, the applicant will then have to rely on Article 8. Article 8 has been introduced into the Immigration Rules by paragraph EX1 (a) and (b). The applicant needs to show that they satisfy either EX1(a) or/and (b) and they have to show that paragraph EX2 applies. Obviously a visitor just like someone with no valid leave to remain will not meet the eligibility criteria of the Immigration rules, but can rely on paragraphs EX1 and 2 to make a successful application. I stand corrected if am wrong on this view.
