Pakistan: Entry Clearances

Volume 458: debated on Monday 26 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether HM High Commission, Islamabad, has received the decision papers from the Immigration Appeals Tribunal in respect of cases VA/08797/2006, VA/08788/2006 and VA/08793/2006 concerning Mr F. A., Mrs R. B. and Miss M. M., relatives of Mrs N. S. of Aylesbury. (127745)

The determinations in respect of the cases of Mr. F A, Mrs. R. B. and Miss M. M. were received in our High Commission in Islamabad in October and November 2006. These cases were part of the backlog of allowed appeal cases, but the papers have now been linked with their files and passed to a casework officer for a brief review before the applicants are contacted and invited to submit their passports so that their visas can be issued.

The Visa Section in Islamabad aim for this to be done within the next week.

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many refused immigration applications are awaiting review by entry clearance managers at HM High Commission, Islamabad. (127748)
