star this property answer text <p>The Home Office does not record information in such a way to be able to report on the number of people seeking family reunion with extended family members in the UK and an individual cannot apply to be considered for family reunion under the exceptional circumstance arrangements. Instead, they would apply for Family Reunion under the Immigration Rules but, if they are refused under the Rules, the Home Office would then go on to consider whether there are exceptional circumstances.</p><p>As such, the figures for applications and visas issued under the Rules and under the exceptional circumstances arrangements are as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Total number of Family Reunion applications – age at the date of application -under 18</p></td><td><p>Total number of Family Reunion applications – age at date of application - over 18</p></td><td><p>Total number of Family Reunion visas issued (‘Family Other’ category)</p></td><td><p>Total number of Family Reunion visas issued under exceptional circumstances arrangements</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>4,980</p></td><td><p>3,220</p></td><td><p>4,887</p></td><td><p>21</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016</p></td><td><p>4,811</p></td><td><p>3,701</p></td><td><p>6,098</p></td><td><p>49</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017 (up to 30 September 2017)</p></td><td><p>2,625</p></td><td><p>2,821</p></td><td><p>3,801</p></td><td><p>49</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>All those issued a family reunion visa are granted leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom, not asylum. The family reunion application process does not require an assessment of the applicant’s international protection needs. It is the family member in the UK that is required to have been granted refugee status or Humanitarian Protection.</p>

star this property answer text <p>An impact assessment was completed in early 2016 which considered the changes being made as part of the Immigration and Nationality Fees Order (2016), the details of which can be found via the following link:</p><p><a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukia/2016/33/pdfs/ukia_20160033_en.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukia/2016/33/pdfs/ukia_20160033_en.pdf</a></p><p>We believe the current policy which requires payment of a fee for all applications for British Citizenship, meets our international obligations.</p><p>Article 32 does not prohibit charging fees to stateless individuals. The current cost of limited and indefinite leave to remain for those who enter the UK on a five-year route to settlement is approximately £4,750. We feel that waiving these fees for stateless individuals up to the point of settlement, but requiring a fee upon becoming a British citizen is fair.</p><p>Taking this approach does not mean that the entitlement to apply for citizenship is lost, but rather deferred, until the fee is affordable. Our current approach allows us to fulfil our convention obligations whilst reducing the burden on the UK taxpayer; therefore striking the right balance for all.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The police in England and Wales cannot at present automatically wipe facial images at the point when a person is determined to be innocent.</p><p>This is because information about the outcome of a person’s case is held on the Police National Computer (PNC), while images are initially captured on 43 local force custody systems. In most cases, images are also loaded to the Police National Database (PND), hence a person may have multiple images across the 43 local systems and PND. Therefore, automatic deletion based on the PNC record could not be done without upgrading both the local custody systems and PND.</p><p>There is no centrally held information on the cost of such an upgrade.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>All asylum claims lodged in the UK, including those made by Afghan nationals who have previously worked as interpreters, are carefully considered on their individual merits by assessing all the evidence provided by the claimant against a background of published country information from the FCO and a wide range of recognised and publicly discloseable sources. These include the media and non-governmental sources, such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.</p><p>We recognise that those who worked for international military forces may be at risk of retribution, but a grant of asylum is not automatic and an assessment of the threat depends on the circumstances of the case, including factors such as the location and length of employment and whether the individual can relocate to a safer part of the country to avoid persecution. Views are sought from the FCO and MoD on the likely risk to the individual. There are also two Government schemes to assist former interpreters and other locally engaged civilians in Afghanistan. These schemes provide for a safe and legal route for those former employees who require relocation, avoiding the need for dangerous journeys to the UK.</p><p>Those who are found not to need protection have a right of appeal to the independent courts. Once their appeals rights are exhausted they are expected to leave the UK unless they qualify for leave to remain under another immigration route.</p>
