star this property answer text <p>Together with international partners, the UK is working to resettle members of the White Helmets and their families. Any resettlement to the UK will be in line with the established UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) process for identifying and resettling the most vulnerable refugees. Our prime concern for those coming to the UK under our resettlement schemes is their safety and protection as they arrive in this country. We believe that one way to protect their privacy and support their recovery and integration is to limit the amount of information about them that we make publicly available.</p><p>Notwithstanding this the Home Office is committed to publishing data on arrivals in an orderly way as part of the regular quarterly Immigration Statistics, in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>New Immigration Rules were announced on 15 June that enable Turkish business persons, workers and their family members who are in the UK under the European Communities Association Agreement (ECAA) to apply for indefinite leave to remain (ILR). The new rules which took effect from 6 July, mean that Turkish workers and business persons can now apply to settle in the UK after five years’ residence as an ECAA business person or ECAA worker (or in equivalent Points Based System routes, as long as the most recent period of leave was under the ECAA).</p><p>In the case of <em>Aydogdu, </em>the Upper Tribunal confirmed that the ECAA “standstill clause” under which 1973 Immigration Rules are applied to Turkish businesspersons did not apply to ILR in the UK, as ILR is not necessary to give effect to the UK’s obligations under the ECAA. The Government does not intend to extend transitional provisions to those Turkish business persons resident in the UK but who did not apply for settlement before 16 March 2018 because it is open to them either to apply for ILR under the new rules, or to extend their limited leave to remain as an ECAA business person free of charge.</p>
