Entry Clearances

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people from each country of origin were granted an entry visa on their (a) first, (b) second and (c) third attempt in the last 12 months; and how many from each such country were declined a visa. (323902)

We are unable to ascertain from central records whether applicants issued with visas in any particular period had previously been refused a visa. This information could only be obtained by checking individual records at disproportionate cost.
