Changes to simplify the process for giving effect to travel bans

Currently, applications from individuals subject to travel bans, also known as immigration sanctions, are refused under primary legislation (the Immigration Act 1971).

However, the legislation does not refer to entry clearance and therefore cancellation of an entry clearance is on the grounds that the person’s presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good.

Non-conducive covers a broad range of factors and assessments can be complex and time consuming. This technical change will simplify processes for caseworkers to give effect to travel bans imposed by the United Nations Security Council or the UK Government.
