Changes to family visitor visa

26 April 2013

We have been informed that royal assent has been given to a clause in the Crime and Courts Bill, published on 10 May, which will remove the full right of appeal for those applying to enter the UK as a family visitor.

The UKBA is making this change to make it easier for customers to get a prompt decision by simply resubmitting an application with all the relevant information, rather than go through a potentially lengthy and costly appeal process. By removing the right of appeal, UKBA is bringing the family visitor route in line with all other visitor visa categories.

The actual process for applying remains unchanged. However UKBA intends to unveil improvements to the online application process for all visa applicants to make it more user-friendly and easier.
