star this property answer text <p>We continue to engage with key stakeholders, including NGOs, International Organisations and local authorities on the UK’s approach to asylum and resettlement, including the approach to family reunion for refugees.</p><p>The Government has committed to rebalancing the system to focus more resource on the most vulnerable refugees through our aid programmes and resettlement whilst ensuring the in country system provides protection for those in need but also ensures those with no lawful basis to stay in the UK are returned. Our policies and approach must reflect the capacity and resources of Government and local authorities.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK Immigration Rules have a comprehensive framework for refugees and their families to be safely reunited in the UK. Our family reunion policy allows immediate family members of those granted protection here to reunite with them. The Immigration Rules also provide for relatives with protection in the UK to sponsor children in serious and compelling circumstances. The Mandate resettlement scheme also allows those recognised by the UNCHR as refugees to join close family members here in the UK.</p><p>In addition, there is provision in the policy to grant visas outside the Rules in exceptional circumstances, which caters for extended family members who otherwise do not qualify under the Rules.</p><p>We do not believe there are unnecessary barriers to family reunion for refugees. Over the last five years there have been 24,700 family reunion visas issued –and this is in addition to the numbers granted asylum here or resettled here under our resettlement schemes.</p><p>We are listening carefully to concerns raised on this issue by Non-Governmental Organisations and others. We are currently reviewing our approach to family reunion as part of the Government’s wider asylum and resettlement policy strategy. We will be following the passage of the Family Reunion Family Member’s Bill closely and will continue our productive discussions in this area.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Individuals who have been refused leave to enter at a port and those in the United Kingdom without leave to remain, following a refusal decision, will be notified of their liability to removal. These notices will also advise them of the need to raise any reasons they may have to stay in the United Kingdom as soon as reasonably practicable.</p><p>An assessment of the number of times these notices were issued in error would require the examination of individual records.</p><p>I am sorry but the information requested is not readily available and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p> more like this
