EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)


This Order amends the Immigration (Designation of Travel Bans) Order 2000 ("the 2000 Order") by removing Resolution 1127 (1997) of 28th August 1997 (Angola) ("the Angola Resolution") from the list of resolutions of the United Nations Security Council in Part 1 of the Schedule to that Order and ensures that Common Position 2002/145/CFSP of 18th February 2002 (Zimbabwe) ("the First Common Position") refers to Common Position 2002/600/CFSP of 22nd July 2002 (Zimbabwe) ("the Second Common Position") on the list of Instruments made by the Council of the European Union in Part 2 of the Schedule to that Order.

The 2000 Order designates a list of instruments of the United Nations Security Council (listed in Part 1 of the Schedule to that Order) or of the Council of Europe of the European Union (listed in Part 2 of the Schedule). A person named in a designated instrument is regarded as an "excluded person" for the purposes of section 8B of the Immigration Act and must be refused leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom. Additionally, any extant leave to enter or remain is automatically cancelled upon a person coming to be regarded as an "excluded person".

The effect of the first of the amendments made by this Order is to delete the reference in the 2000 Order to the Angola Resolution so as to remove the individuals named in the Angola Resolution from the ambit of the definition of "excluded person". The effect of the second of the amendments made by this Order is to ensure that the definition of "excluded person" accurately reflects the Council of the Europe Union's present position as to which Zimbabwean nationals are subject to travel restrictions imposed by Member States of the European Union. This is achieved by amending the 2000 Order to incorporate a reference to the Second Common Position which substitutes, in place of the list originally appearing as an annex to the First Common Position, a new list of persons subject to the travel ban put in place by the First Common Position.
