Fastrack flexible family reunification for family members trapped in active war zones

As a matter of urgency create a Fastrack and flexible family reunification system to allow Syrians and others living in Ireland to bring close family members from active danger zones.

Why is this important?

There is a small number of Syrians living and working in Ireland who are desperately worried about their family members living under siege and relentless bombardment in Syria. Those who are not refugees cannot apply to bring these family members to Ireland. Even for refugees the current system is slow and the rules are restrictive as to which family members can be brought here. We are appealing to the Minister for Justice to urgently bring forward a scheme which will allow for a speedy, wider and more flexible process of family reunification for foreign nationals whose close family members are in imminent danger through war. .
