I know, most of us wonder how does the Home Office check the application supporting documents for settlement visa.
The Entry Clearance Officers or Caseworkers are mandated by the Immigration rules to consider and check for the following:
- adverse behavior (using deception including false representation, fraud, forgery,
non-disclosure of material facts or failure to cooperate)
- non-conducive, adverse character, conduct or associations, (criminal history,
deportation order, travel ban, exclusion, non-conducive to public good, a threat to
- adverse immigration history (breaching conditions, using deception in an application)
- NHS or litigation debt
These are the ways how the Entry Clearance Officers and Caseworkers check for the authenticity of the supporting documents submitted by the applicant for consideration.
- information on the application form
- internal Home Office systems (for example CID, CRS and warehouse)
- Home Office security checks
- other security checks
Other avenues they may check for additional information to consider an application:
- Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) checks
- HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) checks
Here’s the link from where I got the info.
