Ankara Agreement Settlement

All of a sudden, in early 2015, dependants who applied for permanent leave to stay with their ECAA business sponsor were rejected if they did not meet the two-year residency requirement. And if their sponsor had successfully reached an agreement, the creditors would not be able to request additional leave in accordance with the rules, since their sponsor, after acquiring the colony, was no longer a businessman in Ankara. Turkish workers living in the UK are beginning to acquire cumulative (and increasingly less restrictive) residence rights on which they can rely directly on the number of years. As with qualified persons in the EU, Turkish workers had a right of residence as long as they continued to work under the conditions set out in Decision 1/80. Previously, if they reflected other private routes to the settlement, they could apply for an unconditional stay (permanent stay) after 10 years. Attempts to unify the deadline for workers (10 years) with those of entrepreneurs (4 years) failed in 2014 (see ”Buer”, as the Court of Appeal found that the two schemes were not only set at different hours, but also concerned different residence rights. Yes, yes. There has been some turbulence regarding requests for comparison for those living under the Ankara agreement, but the DEAA annex on immigration rules, introduced in July 2018, makes it clear that Turkish businessmen can settle in the UK (get). The case of the Home Office has been that the rules of leave-to-remain indefinitely for people in the UK can be changed through Turkish businessmen, regardless of the terms of the Ankara agreement. The Home Office has therefore stated that those in the UK who have a Turkish visa from Ankara should apply for permanent residence for an indefinite period as part of the usual 5-year route for permanent residence applicants. If you have family members asking for a settlement, you must pay the registration fee of $2,389 and the biometric information fee of $19.20 for each person.

On 15 June 2018, changes to immigration rules (HC 1154) were announced without notice, establishing a comprehensive regulatory framework for those present under the Ankara Agreement, EuRHA. The new rules came into force on 6 July 2018 and are now included in an annex to the immigration rules (ECAA annex) and the latest guidelines for these rules of 5 November 2018. In the case of changes to the worker`s provisions (and the permanent residence permits of the EEA, for which a 5-year stay is required), the rule change establishes new rules to replace Rule 28 of HC 510 (four-year rule). However, new requirements were also imposed – the KoLL, an English language requirement, and high fees for each of them were subject to claims if they had not been collected previously under ECJ jurisprudence. In addition, these amendments also imposed significant fees for applications for extensions of leave in accordance with the provisions. These taxes are at odds with European jurisprudence, which has decided not to levy more than notional amounts for the issuance of proof of the right to the right of residence than the sums paid by EU nationals (Commission/Netherlands, Sahin). Please note that both guidelines are still available on the Home Office website and have not been updated regarding billing (see rule change below). On 16 March 2018, ecAA`s current business policy was withdrawn following the withdrawal of R (at the request of) Aydogdu/Secretary of State for the Home Department (Ankara Agreement – Family members – settlement) [2017] UKUT 167 (2017).

As for R (at the request of) KP Turkey /Secretary of State at the Ministry of the Interior [2014] EWCA Civ 1109 for Turkish workers, he confirmed that the non-status quo clause did not prohibit any restrictions on the right to billing.
