Immigration Rules

"The Immigration Rules are published by the Home Office and set out the rules which must be fulfilled for immigration applications to be successful. The Immigration Rules are regulations which govern the detail of immigration and asylum law. Changes to the rules are normally made via a Ministerial Statement to Parliament, generally in the form of a written statement. Rules made by the Secretary of State in accordance with powers granted by Parliament under section 3(2) of the Immigration Act 1971 as to the practice to be followed in the administration of immigration controls over persons required to have leave to enter. Rules are to be laid before both Houses of Parliament and if disapproved by resolution of either House within 40 days of being laid, the Secretary of State shall make such changes in the rules as appear to be required and lay those changes before Parliament within 40 days of the resolution. If there is no such disapproval, the Rules take effect without any specific parliamentary approval. This is different from the normal procedure for parliamentary approval of statutory instruments, which provide for approval or disapproval of the instrument as a whole but do not make provision for amendment. The Rules are detailed, running to more than 700 pages, and are frequently amended."
