Family reunion

Bringing your family to Scotland

Once you have Refugee Status, Humanitarian Protection or Indefinite Leave to Remain, you can apply to have your family come and live with you.

We no longer offer a family reunion service, but your legal representative may be able to help you through the process.

Our information leaflets will help you gather as much information and evidence as possible before you approach your legal representative to discuss family reunion.
