Challenging a UK Visa Refusal: Information and Options

Are you dealing with a UK visa refusal? We can help. Our team of highly experienced immigration lawyers in Manchester has dealt with over a thousand UK visa refusals, and we have successfully challenged many of them through appeals, administrative review, and judicial review.

If you believe that your immigration application has been refused unlawfully by the Home Office, UKVI, you may have options to challenge the decision. The options available to you depend on the type of application that was submitted. You may have been given a right of administrative review, a full right of appeal, or no right of appeal at all. If you have not been given a right of appeal, our team of immigration lawyers can advise on alternative options.

 

Appeals, Administrative Review, and Judicial Review

For applications that were refused with a full right of appeal, such as spouse visa refusals, refusal of ILR applications, or refusal of an extension or entry clearance visa, you can challenge the decision by lodging an appeal to the immigration tribunal. This is where our team of experienced immigration solicitors can assist you.

 

But what are the chances of getting a UK visa after refusal?

While there is no guarantee that your UK visa will be granted, a successful appeal or administrative review can increase your chances of success. When preparing your fresh application, it is important to address the reasons for the refusal fully. Some common UK visa refusal reasons include incomplete or inaccurate information, insufficient documentation, and not meeting the eligibility criteria.

If you have been refused British citizenship, our team can help you with the reconsideration process.

Our highly experienced immigration solicitors based in Manchester can provide free initial assessment advice online via email, phone call, or an enquiry form. For detailed advice, please book an appointment with our expert immigration solicitor today.

How soon can I reapply after the refusal of my visa?

There is no time limit on how soon you can submit a fresh application, but certain limitations apply while on 3c leave or when the right of administrative review is still available.

 

How long does the appeal process take?

Appeals can take between 6 to 12 months to be heard at the Immigration Tribunal.

 

Do I need to attend the Tribunal?

Appeals can be either oral or paper, and you can represent yourself or appoint a legal representative to attend the Tribunal.

 

What happens if my appeal is allowed?

If your appeal is successful, you will be issued the visa or status you applied for. The Home Office/UKVI may also be required to pay the Tribunal fee back to you. Note that the Home Office/UKVI can appeal the decision to Upper Tribunal.

 

What happens if my appeal is unsuccessful?

If your appeal is not allowed, it may be possible to apply to the Upper Tribunal based on the “error of law” in the determination of the First-Tier Tribunal judge.
