OY (Ankara Agreement; Standstill Clause; Worker’s Family) Turkey: IAT 17 Mar 2006

IAT The standstill clause in Article 6 of Association Council Decision 80/1 is concerned solely with the conditions relating to the worker’s ‘access to employment’ in the UK. It is not concerned with the admission to the UK of a Turkish worker or his family. Consequently, the admission to the UK of the family of a Turkish worker is to be determined on the basis of the relevant immigration rule (and any policies) in effect at the date of the entry clearance decision.
