An NHS worker has been left stranded in Kenya because she has been told that new EU settled status documents issued to her by the Home Office are not valid for travel.
Doreen Kathambi, 36, lives in Glasgow with her fiance, Iain Dunsmore. She works as a dietetic assistant at the Royal Alexandra hospital in Paisley.
She had to travel to Kenya last month for her father’s funeral and informed her employers she would be back in the UK by 18 January.
She obtained her EUSS documents from the Home Office last month to enable her to attend the funeral.
Although she applied for these documents in July last year, she did not get a biometric residence permit appointment until October. After the death of her father her lawyer had to intervene with the Home Office to expedite the issuing of her EUSS confirmation.
