If you have made an application to the Home Office and it has been refused, you might be able to appeal that decision.

Whilst it is not possible to appeal against every refusal, it may be possible to seek an Administrative or Judicial Review of that decision. Judicial Review is the procedure by which you can seek to challenge the decision, action or failure to act of a public body exercising a public law function.

Appeals and reviews of decisions made by the Home Office can be complex and seeking the advice and assistance of an immigration specialist and advocate is highly recommended.

FAQs

What is the appeal process?

Our Appeal Package provides a comprehensive service in which we would undertake and manage the entire process for you.

In our Appeal Package, one of our lawyers will:

  • take detailed instructions from you about your situation;
  • discuss the appeal requirements of the UK Immigration Rules and how they are relevant to your case;
  • provide you with detailed advice on the merits of appealing against the refusal;
  • complete and lodge all the required appeal forms to a professional standard;
  • develop a detailed and comprehensive document bundle for the court outlining the details and merits of your appeal in chronological order, and why it should be accepted;
  • expertly represent you at the full hearing before the tribunal, and liaise with the appellate authorities for the duration of your appeal.

What is a Judicial Review?

A Judicial Review is the name given to a court proceeding, in which a judge agrees to review the validity of your entry clearance decision.

Judicial Reviews are therefore a type of appeal, but they differ to other appeals in that they question and challenge how the final decision has been reached rather than if the decision itself is right or wrong.
