EUSS Family Permit. Application refused. Exclusion order

Your application for an EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit will be refused where at the date of decision you are subject to an exclusion order or exclusion decision preventing you from entering the UK.

Such orders or decisions are made on the grounds of public policy, public security or public health, or when your exclusion is conducive to the public good.

Exclusion is ordered in cases involving national security (terrorism), extremism, serious crime, international crimes (including crimes against humanity), corruption, and unacceptable behaviour.

If you committed tax evasion, money laundering, bribery, fraud, if you participated in match fixing in sport, or if you used in the UK or abroad any means or medium (including a website) to express views which provoke, justify or glorify terrorist violence, provoke other serious criminal activity, foster hatred which might lead to inter-community violence in the UK, then you may become subject to an exclusion order or exclusion decision.

The exclusion must be proportional with your personal conduct. Your conduct must represent a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat affecting one of the fundamental interests of the British society. Your past conduct must be taken into account, including previous convictions.

To distinguish between exclusion and deportation, you must remember that a decision to exclude you should only be made against you where you are believed to be outside the UK. Deportation is normally the appropriate course of action against you when you are in the UK.

The situation is the same if you are the subject to an exclusion decision made in the Island of Guernsey, in the Island of Jersey, or in the Isle of Man.

If the exclusion order or decision has been set aside or no longer has effect at the date of the decision on your application for a Family Permit, your application will not be refused based on the fact that an exclusion order or decision was made against you at some point in the past.
