Ways Of Challenging A UK Visa Refusal

Our exceptionally experienced immigration solicitors have dealt with over a thousand of UK visa refusals. Our immigration lawyers can help you to challenge your UK visa refusal in the following ways:

Appealing UK Visa Refusal

Whether you will receive a right of appeal or another legal recourse, such as administrative review and judicial review, depends on the type of application that was submitted. Our team of immigration lawyers can advise you on the alternative options if you have not been given a right of appeal.

We at United Solicitors have overturned many refusal letters via appeals, administrative review, and judicial review. Those applications that were refused with a full right of appeal can be challenged by lodging an appeal to the immigration tribunal, most often this will be a spouse visa refusal, refusal of ILR application or refusal of an extension or entry clearance visa.

For the application that was refused inside the UK, i.e. an extension, switching or ILR, you will normally have 14 calendar days to lodge the appeal. For applicants who are outside the UK, the time period is 28 days.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How to challenge a UK visa refusal?

If your UK visa application has been refused by the Home Office or UKVI, it may be possible to challenge the refusal. You may have been given a right of administrative review, a full right of appeal or no right of appeal at all.

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

There is no time limit on how soon the fresh application can be submitted (with certain limitations while on 3c leave or when the right of administrative review is still available). It is important that the reasons for refusal can be addressed fully in the fresh application.

How long does the appeal process stake?

Appeals can take anywhere from 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. Oral appeals usually provide the best opportunity for the appellants to present their case. You can either represent yourself or appoint a legal representative to attend the Tribunal.

What happens if my appeal is allowed?

If your appeal is successful, you would normally be issued with the visa or status you applied for. The Home Office/UKVI may also be required to pay the Tribunal fee back to you. It should be noted that the Home Office/UKVI can try to 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 usually based on the “error of law” in the determination of the Firs-Tier Tribunal judge.
