THE IMMIGRATION ACTS
Heard at Manchester (Via Teams)
Decision & Reasons Promulgated
On 15th November 2021
On 24th November 2021
UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE LANE
GULAM HAYDER CHOWDHURY Appellant
(ANONYMITY DIRECTION NOT MADE)
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
DECISION AND REASONS
1. The appellant is a citizen of Bangladesh who was born on 1 April 1987. He appealed to the First-tier Tribunal against a decision of the Entry Clearance Officer dated 28 May 2018 refusing his claim for entry clearance as the partner of Shomi Begum. The First-tier Tribunal, in a decision promulgated on 17 May 2021, dismissed his appeal. The appellant now appeals, with permission, to the Upper Tribunal.
2. At the Upper Tribunal initial hearing, Mr McVeety, who appeared for the Entry Clearance Officer, told me that he accepted that the judge had erred in law by failing to take any account of the sponsor's receipt of carer's allowance. As a consequence of that error, the judge's analysis of the financial requirements to be met by the appellant under the Immigration Rules had been vitiated which, in turn, rendered his determination of the appeal on human rights grounds unsound.
3. In the circumstances, I set aside the decision of the First-tier Tribunal. None of the findings of fact shall stand. The appeal is returned to the First-tier Tribunal for that Tribunal to remake the decision following a hearing de novo.
Notice of Decision
