Twelve Week Rule IAT Policy (Twelve Week Rule)

R Lewis made this Freedom of Information request to Ministry of Justice

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Ministry of Justice did not have the information requested.

Dear Ministry of Justice,

I have seen a number of references on the Internet about a twelve week policy rules to issue a visa when an applicant wins an appeal.

I have been unable to find this policy online.

I have found references to the policy on the justice.gov.uk website which validates the existence of the policy.

I have made a request to the Home Office, which has actually clarified that this 12 week rule is infact an eight week rule:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/t...

Can you please provide me with a copy of the policy that the various references references are referring to.

I do understand that the home office are rather busy at the moment and this twelve weeks has had four weeks added. Taking it to sixteen weeks. This is noted on the justice website.

Was this information communicated in a document to the justice website authors or relevant body to update. Can you please provide a copy of this information.

If a person's documents are not issued within the eight weeks, twelve weeks, or even sixteen weeks (the three different deadlines being mentioned in various places): What are the possible remedies to this situation? What further action is open to an appealant if their documents are not issued promptly?

Yours faithfully,

R Lewis
