Variation of SET (O) Application to SET (LR) Application

Both these applications are made for the same purpose i.e. obtaining Indefinite leave to remain in the UK. However, the applicant may still choose to vary the grounds of the application for ILR by making variation of leave to remain application because of the following reasons:

The criteria of obtaining ILR on the basis of long residence are quite straight forward as compared to applying for ILR on the basis of other immigration categories.

If refused, SET LR will give the applicant full in-country right of appeal while if SET (O) is refused the applicant is only given Right of Administrative Review.

If given right of appeal, the applicant’s leave is considered to be extended by virtue of paragraph 3C of the Immigration Act 1971 till all appeal rights are exhausted. This includes right to work and remain in the UK provided the applicant had valid leave to remain at the time of making his SET (O) application.

In administrative review applications, the applicant is not generally permitted to rely on any further documents or information to address any reasons of refusal while in appeals the applicant is permitted to make use of any new documents or information not available at the time of making the SET LR application.

Refund of Home office Fee

Once variation of leave to remain is accepted as valid application, the home office shall make arrangements for the refund the lower amount of fee paid by the applicant.
