Foreign nationals who have been refused a visa for a short visit to see family members in the UK will need to re-apply for a visa rather than launch a lengthy and costly appeal.

According to a new bill that was published today the UK’s Immigration Minister Damien Green announced that in future the vast majority of applicants would lose the full right to appeal a decision.  

Refused applicants will, however, still be able to appeal on limited grounds of human rights or race discrimination.

 

The change is included in the Crime and Courts Bill, which was published today.

Subject to Parliamentary approval and Royal Assent, it is expected to come into force by 2014.
