Family Reunion in UK

Family Reunion in UK

If an asylum-seeker makes a successful asylum claim they then become a refugee, and they are given leave to remain in the UK for five years. After this they may be able to apply for settlement (indefinite leave to remain), which enables them to live in the UK permanently.

In some cases the asylum-seeker has left their home country and their spouse, civil partner or unmarried partner and children remain there. If the asylum-seeker succeeds in their asylum claim in the UK then UK immigration law allows their partner and/or children (if aged under 18) to apply to come to the UK to be reunited with them under the Family Reunion route. (This route can work when the refugee holds refugee leave or refugee settlement leave, but not if they have acquired British citizenship.)

The applicant must in all cases show that the family relationship was existing before the asylum-seeker left the home country.

This type of application is relatively straightforward compared to other types of visa application: there is no financial requirement or English language requirement.

  • review rating 5  My wife’s visa situation was extremely difficult as she came into the UK on a visa waiver, she is from Iran and although I am British, my employment was in China. Adel (the lawyer) was extremely helpful and paid great attention to detail. An example of this is that the pay slips from China were extremely difficult to obtain and when I got them, they were not exactly how they should be. Adel very patiently explained how they should be and ensured that each and every document was at the highest possible standard for the Home Office. My wife was able to get a residence permit and if we had attempted to apply for the visa without the help of GET UK VISA, we would not have had such a positive ending. I truly thank them for all the help and guidance they offered us throughout a very tricky situation which led to the Best possible outcome. Thank you again Adel and GET UK VISA.

  • review rating 5  I highly recommend GET UK VISA! My experience with them was amazing. They are accessible and honest which makes you feel instantly at ease. Without their help I will probably still be waiting for my husband visa approval. We are definitely pleased and could have not asked for anything more! If you are looking for an affordable and professional lawer, that makes everything run smoothly, then you have found it! I will always recommend GET UK VISA to anyone needing an immigration lawyer.
