New Home Office Guidance: Minimum income threshold: information for family visa applications

The Home Office have issued new guidance relating to the ongoing Court of Appeal case where the controversial financial requirements are being challenged. 

The guidance states that the Home Office are continuing to put on hold decisions in spouse/partner/child applications for settlement where the only requirement they do not meet is the financial one. They further state that they will consider the applications once the legal challenge is finally determined by the courts.

The guidance also states that applicants who have applied for Entry Clearance from outside of the UK and whose cases are on hold due to this court case, can request their passports back so that  they can travel whilst their applications are on hold.

We will of course keep you updated and inform you when the judgement from the last hearing on 05/03/2014 is published, which should be in the coming months.
