    P78 - Introduce automatic approval of visit visas for families of British CitizensPetition to Introduce automatic approval of visit visas for families of British Citizens.

    Family members of UK Citizens shouldn’t have to meet the same criteria as other applicants for a visit visa. Not being a citizen doesn’t make our parent, siblings, children or grandchildren any less a part of our family. The only requirement should be that a British relative sponsors them. If family can support them, there is no reason to reject an application.

    The same restrictions would still apply: no public funds; no ability to work, and checks to ensure no threat to national security. A lot of families are heartbroken because relatives cannot visit. Let’s bring families together and recognise the right to a family life for British citizens and their families.

    So we call on the government to Introduce automatic approval of visit visas for families of British Citizens.

    I have a couple of major concerns about this petition:
    a) how long would these visit visas last for?
    b) won't this just lead to more people on the run overstaying their visas?

    So because of these reasons, I will be voting no.
