Introduce super visa category for parents of British citizens similar to Canada

Gov Responded - 3 May 2018 Debated on - 9 Jul 2018 View Thangam Debbonaire's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 7 months ago

Parents for British citizens are treated differently if they reside in countries outside the EU and are not EU citizens and government has made the settlement of parents under ADR practically impossible so we are looking for a middle ground as it is done in Canada with SUPER VISA

British citizens should be able to appeal the refusal of a family 'visit visa'

Debated on - 9 Jul 2018 View Thangam Debbonaire's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 10 months ago

The appeals process for Family Visit Visa was removed on 25 June, 2013 to save costs. My recent personal experience confirmed that the UKBA seem to have cut the process of justice and accountability while cutting their costs. How can this be justified?
Is UKBA now the Judge, Jury and Executioner?

Introduce automatic approval of visit visas for families of British Citizens

Gov Responded - 22 Jan 2018 Debated on - 9 Jul 2018 View Thangam Debbonaire's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 8 months ago

Family members of UK Citizens shouldn’t have to meet the same criteria as other applicants for a visit visa. Not being a citizen doesn’t make our parent, siblings, children or grandchildren any less a part of our family. The only requirement should be that a British relative sponsors them.
