Reuniting families affected by UK spouse visa rules

Joint Evidence with ILPA on Statement of Changes to Immigration Rules

Reunite Families UK and ILPA submitted joint evidence, endorsed by Praxis, The Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, Migrant Voice, and British in Europe, to the House of Lords’ Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee (SLSC), on 19 March 2024 on the Statement of Changes to the Immigration Rules HC 590, focusing on the Minimum Income Requirement changes for family visas.

For the reasons set out in the evidence, we have requested that the SLSC draws the Statement of Changes to the special attention of the House, and we recommend that “each House annuls the Statement of Changes and provides the Home Secretary the opportunity to reconsider the policies underlying these changes”.
