Welcome to the April 2017 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This month we cover the increase in immigration fees, several nationality law issues, run though the most important cases we saw in April and end with some mentions for some new or amended Home Office policy documents, including on permanent residence applications, and for a mega-post on the general grounds for refusal in the immigration rules.
The material is all drawn from the April 2017 blog posts on Free Movement.
