Home Office wins judgment on minimum income threshold.

22 July 2014

The Court of Appeal made a judgment of upholding the lawfulness of the income threshold under current family migration rules on 11 July 2014. It overturns an earlier High Court judgment from July 2013, which was supportive of the approach but found that the impact of the minimum income threshold on family life could be disproportionate.


Immigration and Security Minister James Brokenshire commented that “the UK welcome those who wish to make a life in the UK with their family, work hard and make a contribution, but family life must not be established in the UK at the taxpayer’s expense and family migrants must be able to integrate”.


From the 28 July, the 4,000 applicants whose applications did not meet the minimum income threshold and are currently on hold will now receive a decision.
