EU citizens win right to access personal data held by Home Office
EU citizens have won the right to get full access to records about them held by the Home Office or any other body after a legal battle by campaigners. Appeal court ruling means people denied settled status or immigration visas can see records used in the case.
Three judges at the court of appeal unanimously overturned an earlier high court decision that their case had no legal merit and ruled the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) unlawfully denied them access to their data through an “immigration exemption” clause.
