London Immigration Solicitors Explain Effects of Overstaying in U.K.
London immigration solicitors explain that overstaying is considered a criminal offence and therefore denies the person the right to legally work or be self-employed in the country. In fact, even the employer of an overstaying immigrant will not be afforded any defence against the sanction for illegal work, and can be fined up to £10,000 or higher. To avoid further problems, the concerned party will have to send the Home Office an application within 28 days of their visa expiring so that they will not be regarded as overstaying, subject to the Home Office’s decision. Beyond that is mandatory refusal.
