Section 49. Family immigration in other cases

If strong humanitarian considerations so indicate, a residence permit may also be granted to family members other than those mentioned in sections 40 to 53, and exceptions may be made to conditions related to the status of the sponsor.
In the assessment of whether a residence permit should be granted, weight may be given to considerations relating to immigration control.
In cases affecting children, the best interests of the child shall be a fundamental consideration.
Where particular reasons so indicate, it may be stipulated that the permit may not provide a basis for a permanent residence permit, or that the residence permit does not confer a right to take employment.
The King may issue regulations containing further provisions.
