To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what her Department's practice is in cases in which hon. Members send further documentary evidence to UK Visas and Immigration on visitor's applications which have been refused after meeting constituents who are visa sponsors; whether that body considers that evidence as part of the original application; whether it is her Department's policy to give advice in all such cases that a new application should be made; and if she will make a statement.

Holding answer received on 22 June 2015

An application to visit the UK can be reconsidered where representations are made that assert and provide evidence showing that the refusal contained a material error. Where representations contain new evidence that was not submitted with the original application, applicants should submit such evidence through a fresh application, which will then be considered on its own merit against the requirement of the Immigration Rules.
