§ Mr. Vaz
The number of applicants awaiting settlement interviews fluctuates during the year in response to seasonal pressures. The following figures give the numbers at the end of December 2000 in the countries concerned. The posts at Islamabad, Bombay and New Delhi divide settlement applications into four interview queues. The queue groupings are:
- Queue 1—Right of abode cases and dependent relatives over 65;
- Queue 2—Spouses and children under 18;
- Queue 3—Fiance(e)s and other first time applicants;
- Queue 4—Re-applicants;The visa sections at Karachi, Calcutta, Madras and Colombo have one queue for all settlement applications.
