Hi , Thank you for your question.
How long has your brother been in Greece? Has he been issued with refugee status?
Thank you for your reply.
As your brother has already claimed and obtained refugee status is Greece he would not be able to now try and come to the UK under family reunion. Had he still been in is home country and you had been in the UK on a refugee status then he would have been able to apply to join you in the UK under the family reunion visa. But as he is already out of his come country and been issued with refugee status in Greece he would not be able to move the UK.
I hope this answers your question, if so please provide a rating and feedback.
This is why he cannot apply to come to the UK as a refugee as you are already on a spouse visa and did not come to the UK as a refugee. He will not be able to transfer his application to the UK as a refugee needs to claim asylum when they enter a country they feel safe in ie Greece, he cannot now pick and choose which country he wants to transfer to simply because he may have a relative there. If this was the case he should have applied for asylum in the UK and not Greece when he first left his country.
