Important Information for Zimbabwean asylum seekers

from the Zimbabwe Association, 30 June 2008
Last week several important cases were heard in the House of Lords.
The ruling on the Chikwamba case (25 June 2008) may affect many people in the Zimbabwean community who are in stable relationships and have kids.

In the past, couples where the wife/husband has had refugee status (or British citizenship) and the other partner has been refused asylum, the refused partner has been told to go back to Zimbabwe and apply for entry clearance from there.

The Chikwamba ruling may mean that it is now possible to sort out the problem of entry clearance from within the UK. 

People in this situation MUST seek legal advice about their position as soon as they can.
