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.
The most common types of applications made within the context of the Human Rights Act
- An application based on the right to private and/ or family life in the context of Article 8
- An application based on the right to life in the context of Article 10
- An application based on the prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment in the context of Article 3
