The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
A Refugee Family Reunion Visa allows refugees to be reunited with you in the UK. This is provided their family members face similar persecution in their home country. In this application, the refugee is required to act as a sponsor for their family members.
If your application for asylum has been accepted, you will be granted official refugee status. After this, you are permitted to remain in the UK for a period of up to five years. During this time, any of your family members who still reside in your home country may make an application for a Refugee Family Reunion Visa.
An application for a Refugee Family Reunion Visa can be very complex so it is advisable that you seek the help of an immigration adviser before you make an application. Our immigration lawyers can offer you step-by-step guidance with your Family Reunion Visa application. We can assess whether you and your family members qualify for this asylum passage and can also help you locate the appropriate documents to prove your relationship with your family members is genuine. Your lawyer will also write a personalised Letter of Representation to be attached to your application. We also provide translation services and full application completion. Contact us now on 0333 363 8577 to speak with an immigration lawyer or make an enquiry online for advice about your options.
To be eligible for a Family Reunion Visa, you must:
You must also be able to provide evidence which demonstrates your relationship to your sponsor. This can most commonly be provided with identity documents, such as birth certificates or passports.
However, if the refugee and family members are unable to gain access to these documents then other forms of proof may be applicable. This includes witness statements, DNA testing, and wedding photographs.
It is important to remember that the most appropriate documents for you will vary according to your relationship with your sponsor. If you require more specific information, it is highly advisable that you seek the advice of an immigration lawyer.
In order for a refugee to bring their spouse to the UK with them, they must supply evidence of their marriage being official and legal.
This may include evidence of a marriage certificate or, if the relationship in question is between two unmarried or engaged individuals, with proof that the relationship has lasted at least two years.
