To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, which countries his Department has identified as a high risk of abuse of the immigration system.
7 January 2019
We use our immigration system to help mitigate a wide range of threats to the UK. Risk is used and assessed at many places within the immigration system and the risk posed by different countries is determined by looking at the full range of threats to the UK, not just immigration abuse.
Those countries where such risks may be higher will usually be subject to our visa regime and will be visa nationals. All cases are decided on the individual merits of the application.
