Human Rights Applications
An application based on your human rights will be considered in the context of the Human Rights Act (HRA) 1998 and The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), which was incorporated into UK law by the HRA. They govern the various different categories within which a person can make an application on human rights grounds. However, there are some circumstances which do not fit into the context of the immigration rules. In such a scenario you can make an application outside of the immigration rules, asking the Home Office to exercise their discretion and grant you Leave due to exceptional and compelling circumstances.
