Visas: Abkhazia

Volume 691: debated on Tuesday 8 May 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What instructions are given to entry certificate officers based in the British embassy or consulate in Moscow on how to deal with visa applications from residents of Abkhazia travelling on Russian passports. [HL3507]

There are no specific instructions given to staff at our entry clearance issuing posts in the Russian Federation as regards residents of Abkhazia. All applicants holding Russian passports are required to meet the relevant requirements of the Immigration Rules and are treated equally, without bias.
