Aleem (Pankina - Uplift for overseas earnings) Sri Lanka v SSHD [2011] UKUT 00120 (IAC)

For the Appellant: Mr H Kannangara
For the Respondent: Mr J Gulvin, Home Office Presenting Officer

The requirement by the respondent that an applicant for leave to remain as a Tier 1 (General) Migrant, whose last leave was as a Tier 4 (General) Student), must have physically undertaken work in an overseas country for an uplift to apply to his earnings in that country, is imposed by Guidance only and is not contained in the Rules. Thus, in line with SSHD v Pankina [2010] EWCA Civ 719, this Guidance is ineffective to impose such an additional requirement.
