Other useful resources

Here we share other useful resources from third parties.

Watch the Westminster Hall debate on 23 April 2024 – General Debate: Minimum income thresholds for partner and spousal visas – on the impact of the increase of the MIR to £29,000, organised by Paul Blomfield MP (Sheffield Central, Labour).

You can read a transcript of the debate here.

Reunite families UK compiled relevant information on the Minimum Income Requirement and spouse/family visa costs. See their website here.

The UK House of Lords Justice and Home Affairs Committee published its report All families matter: An inquiry into family migration in February 2023, and debated it on 20 September 2023.

“The report explores the impact of family migration policies on families and society, including the experience of separated families. The committee finds that current family migration policies fail both families and society and advocates for new policies grounded in humanity and decency.”

In May 2023, Reunite Families UK and Fragomen organised a webinar on Family Schemes for EU Citizens.

On the Reunite Families UK website you can also find a useful factsheet from 3million and the slides of the webinar.

The PIs of the Brexit Couples Project, Katharine Charsley and Helena Wray, successfully completed the research project ‘Kept Apart – Couples and families separated by the UK immigration system’.

On the project website you can access a free electronic booklet documenting the uncertainty British partners who are separated from their loved ones experience.
