We asked for immigration law-inspired Halloween costume ideas and the responses were incredible

What’s the spookiest part of the immigration system? Colin asked via Twitter on Halloween, and you answered. Here’s seven of the best ideas for immigration law-themed Halloween costumes.

1. Spookified documents

2. A f-f-f-float list

Scary rating: πŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒ. See Grey and hopeless: The grim reality of immigration tribunals.

3. The damned-soul responsibility rule

Scary rating: πŸŽƒπŸŽƒ. See Why can’t my children join me in the UK?

4. A haunting Home Office refusal letter

Scary rating: πŸŽƒπŸŽƒ. See Tribunal President says bus drivers and brain surgeons to be treated the same.

5. The midnight income requirement

Scary rating: πŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒ. See Putting a price on love: the minimum income rule for spouse visas.

6. A ghostly and supernatural relationship

7. A points bats system

Sadly, we cannot confirm whether any of these actually came to life on the night. But there’s always next year.
