Do you feel the decision that has been made on your application is unfair? If so, you may be eligible to submit an Administrative Review. This essentially asks the Home Office to reconsider the application due to an incorrect calculation of an aspect e.g. your income.

It may also be applicable if you feel the Home Office have not taken a certain supporting documentation or piece of evidence into consideration.

If you are able to proceed with an Administrative Review, Home Office officials will inform you in your decision letter.

Our expert lawyers are available to assist you throughout the entire Administrative Review process. They will guide you through every step to help you reach the positive outcome you are looking for.

FAQs

Am I eligible for a UKVI Administrative Review?

An Administrative Review is only available when you do not have a right to appeal. This process is purely to dispute the decision by the Home Office on the grounds of unconsidered evidence.

Your Home Office decision letter will state if an Administrative Review is available to you.

Please contact us if you are unsure about your eligibility.

What is the cost for an Administration Review?

The Home Office charge £80 for an Administrative Review submission.

The entire application is completed online and the payment is made when you submit the application.

How long does it take to receive a decision on an Administrative Review?

You will receive an acknowledgement within one or two days to say that your application has been received and is being considered.

Decisions are usually made within 28 days of this contact.

What happens when a decision is made?

Once the Home Office has made a decision on your Administrative Review application, they will contact you to let you know that they have either:

  • admitted fault and have decided to grant the specified leave;
  • refused your application – if this is the case you may be able to proceed with a Judicial Review or otherwise make a fresh application.
