Hi,Please provide further information. Why is his passport with the home office?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi he obtained a 3 1/2 year student visa and work visa (20hrs) the colleague shut down and when the visa was going to run out he applied again through a lawyer but this lawyer made a fake documents (English language certificate) the uk broad agency contacted him to send his documents and passport which he did and he expected to get another visa but because of the fake documents they kept his passport and told him that he can only have it back when he wants to return to India. So is there any chance if can renew his passport why staying in the uk? Thanks

Hi,From the information provided, it would appear that the UKBA would be looking to remove him at the end of his visa. If he does not leave of his own free will, he will be removed.As he is now an overstayed, any further applications should be made from India.I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.kind regards

Hello thanks for your reply just one more question is there any chance he can renew his passport in this country (UK)?? Is that even a possibility?
Expert:  chatham-chamber replied 1 year ago.

Hi! Just one last question he is worried that because the UKBA has his passport, will this impact him for reapplying for a visa again once he has renewed his Indian passport? He wants to go back voluntarily but could they put a tag on him i.e deport him once he decides to go? (I hope this makes sense) plus will it help his case that we are getting a formal engagement in the July as well? Many thanks

Hi,I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if he has overstayed his previous visa, this will adversely affect any future application he may make.If he us deported, he will face an automatic 10 year ban. He is best to leave of his own accord.I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.kind regards
