The Home Office is able to provide some of the information requested, but is unable to provide information on which applications are from members of the same family, as to obtain this would incur disproportionate cost.

The numbers of family reunion visas issued & refused in total and broken down by age group, gender and the specific nationalities requested is set out in the table below.
