About this course
This course was last updated in June 2023.
When someone is granted protection status in the United Kingdom this opens up the possibility of sponsoring family members to join them in the UK. This is often referred to as “refugee family reunion” although there are several forms of protection status. There are special rules from which family members benefit and a specific appendix of the Immigration Rules which apply to such cases.
This online training course covers the nuts and bolts of family reunion applications, who can apply, the requirements to meet, avoiding refusals and how to appeal.
