asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many applications made in Tbilisi, Georgia, for visas for entry into the United Kingdom by Georgian citizens have been considered by an asylum and immigration appeals tribunal; how many have been granted an appeal; and how many have been refused. [HL2359]

For the period January to December 2007 the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal received 30 appeals against refusal of entry clearance to the United Kingdom by Georgia nationals who applied at the UK embassy in Tbilisi, Georgia. In the same period, 24 Georgian appeals were decided: immigration judges allowed eight, dismissed nine, and six were withdrawn or abandoned. One appeal was allowed after reconsideration.
