Important updates in UK immigration

24 May 2013

UK immigration rules and policy are constantly changing. It follows  below a concise summary of the most important updates in the UK immigration in recent weeks:

  • From 25 June 2013, the full right of appeal for applicants refused leave to enter the UK as a family visitor will be removed. The UKBA has announced that under the new Rules; ‘Applicants who are refused can re-apply addressing the reasons for refusal instead of appealing. This will be quicker and cost less than an appeal.'
  • A new Immigration Bill presented on May 8, 2013 will increase fines for businesses that employ unauthorized foreign workers and also for foreign nationals who work in the UK without authorization. The bill should also make it easier for the Government to deport those without valid immigration status and prohibit unauthorized immigrants from obtaining driving licenses.
  • Discretionary leave for the victims of trafficking should now be granted for at least 12 months and 1 day and no more than 30 months (2.5 years)
