HC Deb 13 December 1993 vol 234 c436W
Mr. Madden

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the Government's policy on issuing re-entry visas to those settled in the United Kingdom and who intend to return within short periods; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Charles Wardle

Re-entry visas were abolished in May 1991. Those settled in the United Kingdom are however exempt from the requirement to obtain a visa if they return to the United Kingdom for settlement within two years of departure.
