Am I eligible for a Refugee Family Reunion Visa?
To be eligible for a Family Reunion Visa, you must:
- Be residing in the home country of your refugee sponsor
- Be related to your refugee sponsor
- Be a member of your refugee relative’s household (when in your home country), such as dependent children
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.
