ARIA responds to the Home Office

Following an announcement from the Business and Investment Team at the Home Office, ARIA have signalled intent to participate in the newly established “Operational Forum”.

The principle intent of the Operational Forum is to foster excellent working partnerships and ongoing dialogue with the Home Office’s key operational service-users and representative organisations regarding routine operational issues.

The Operational Forum will consist of a representative group of key organisations and representatives. The forum is intended to be inclusive and will consist of organisations representing both in-country and overseas experiences. Each organisation will be offered one place. Members will agree to represent the views of their organisation and cascade information/feedback between their organisation and the forum.

Interested ARIA members are invited to contact the Management Committee for more information.

If you are a practicing and regulated immigration adviser in the UK, you are also invited to contact the Management Committee for membership information. (

ARIA Responds to the SRA

ARIA will respond to a public consultation sponsored by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).  The SRA provides the British public with confidence in practicing solicitors by assuring that their conduct and competence meets the legal standard.  Currently, the SRA are sponsoring a consultation entitled “New Overseas Rules”, and the subject matter affects areas of interest to our membership.
