When someone is granted refugee status in the United Kingdom this opens up the possibility of the refugee sponsoring family members to join him or her in the UK. This is often referred to as “refugee family reunion”. There are special rules from which refugee family members benefit and a specific set of paragraphs of the Immigration Rules which apply to such cases.
This online training course covers the nuts and bolts of refugee family reunion applications, who can apply, the requirements to meet, avoiding refusals and how to appeal.
The course is only available to paying members of Free Movement. If you are not already a member, you can join here and access not just this course but all of our courses. Membership starts from £20 per month and you can cancel at any time.
