LONDON: In line with his 2022-23 inspection plan, the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration has commenced an inspection of the Home Office’s Afghan resettlement schemes
This inspection will examine the effectiveness, efficiency and consistency of the Home Office’s processing of applications to Afghan resettlement schemes.
The Independent Chief Inspector invites anyone with knowledge or experience of applying to the schemes to submit evidence to inform this inspection and welcomes views on what is working well and what could be improved. He would be particularly interested to hear from those with first-hand experience of applying to the schemes.
The ICIBI is trialling a new system which will allow responses to be submitted securely via a simple online form. Please click here to submit your response.
This call for evidence will remain open for three weeks until 27 November 2022.
Please note: The ICIBI’s statutory remit does not extend to investigating or making decisions about individual applications. This remains a Home Office responsibility. However, the Chief Inspector can take an interest in individual cases to the extent that they illustrate or point to systemic problems.
David Neal, Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration, November 2022.
