Section 19 Of The UK Borders Act 2007 Comes Into Force

Section 19 of the UK Borders Act 2007 has today come into force and, as a result, restricts the evidence that an appellant can rely on at a PBS appeal hearing. Any evidence submitted must have been produced at the time when the application was made. Any new evidence submitted at a hearing for the first time will now only be allowed if it is being used to prove, for example, that a document originally submitted was genuine, or if it is in support of grounds unrelated to the scoring of points under the Points-Based System.
