AK v Entry Clearance Officer, Dhaka - working holidaymakers - Asylum and Immigration Tribunal 12.7.07

A foreign national can apply to enter the UK as a "working holiday maker". The Immigration Rules stipulate, among other conditions, that he can only take "employment incidental to a holiday" and he can "in any event not work more than 12 months during his stay".

AK was refused entry. The Asylum & Immigration Tribunal, dismissing his appeal, confirmed that the work must be purely incidental to the holiday, and not the primary reason for being in the UK. Furthermore, the 12 month restriction in Immigration Rules para 95(vi) applies to part-time work.
