Changes to Family Visit Visa Appeals Come into Effect
Tuesday, 17 July 2012
The Immigration Appeals (Family Visitor) Regulations 2012 came into force on 9 July 2012, setting out who qualifies for a full right of appeal against a visa refusal to visit family in the UK.
Changes to the right of appeal apply to UK family visitor visa applicants. They will not have a full right of appeal if they are refused a visa to visit their uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, first cousin, or a relative who does not have settled, refugee or humanitarian protection status in the UK. A limited right of appeal will remain on human rights and race discrimination grounds.
There will be no changes to the requirements for entry to the UK as a visitor and genuine visitors are welcome. <.p>
