Unlike other Entry Clearance visas, a returning resident visa does not need any renewal or extension and the applicants will be able to reside in the UK permanently.
The applicants are not able to apply for dependants on a returning resident visa. Each person who requires an entry clearance under this category must make an individual application, and that applies to your applicant’s partner or children.
The Resident Return Visa processing time depends on the applicant’s circumstances and complexity of the matter. It is likely that the wait may be several weeks before getting a decision.
The refusal of a returning resident visa can be challenged by the administrative review process, if there are any caseworking errors. There is no right of appeal for this type of application.If Administrative Review is unsuccessful, applicants may pursue Judicial Review as a remedy if the decision is not made correctly.
The applicants who are holders of British Passport are no longer subject to Immigration Control and are free to travel to and from the UK without any restrictions.
