I have spoken to June about this one and she advised that requestor should be advised that he should needs to send this request to UKBA as FCO no longer deal with any queries RE Visas. Please can you deal.
Thanks.
Joe.

Dear Henry Shrimp

Thank you for your e-mail.

However, I am unable to help you with your enquiry as we do not deal with visa enquiries.

You will need to contact UK Border Agency. I have included the link to their website pages below:

Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Foreign and Commonwealth Office's handling of my FOI request 'How many times have the British Goverment denied the Palestinian football team visa's to tour Britain since 2006?'.

The reason you give for not supplying the information is, "the FCO no longer deal with any queries RE Visas."

I am not asking whether you deal with visa enquires, I am asking about those which you have in the past and which your reply makes clear you have in the past.

Please supply the information.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Henry Shrimp

Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Dear Henry Shrimp

Thank you for your e-mail.

We are unable to help you with your query as we no longer hold this information. All documents relating to visa issuing are now with the UK Border Agency.
You will therefore need to contact them for this information.

We cannot carry out an internal review as no Freedom of Information request was answered.

Kind Regards
Information Rights Team
