If your UK visa application has been refused and you believe the visa refusal is unlawful, then you may have the right to appeal or apply for an administrative review, depending on the type of visa you applied for and the specific circumstances of your case.

You can only appeal to the tribunal if you have the legal right to appeal. Your decision letter will usually tell you if you can apply for an administrative review and if you do not have the right to appeal.

Challenging a visa refusal can be a complex and time-consuming process. It's highly recommended to seek professional legal assistance to increase your chances of success. Immigration laws and procedures can change, so always consult with an immigration solicitor for up-to-date advice.

Should you decide to challenge the refusal, we will provide assistance with every step of the process, from lodging the appeal to representing you at the First-Tier and Upper Immigration Tribunals. We can provide expert guidance on your case, review your refusal letter, and help you prepare a strong case.

If you would like to challenge a UK visa refusal, or need some general immigration advice, call us on 0161 226 8618.

Choose the appropriate challenge method

The two common options are:

  • Administrative Review: This is available for some types of visas and is used to review the decision-making process. You can request an administrative review if you believe that a mistake was made during the initial assessment.
  • Appeal: Appeals are generally available for family and human rights visas. You can appeal the refusal through the Immigration and Asylum Tribunal.

Judicial Review (JR)

You can challenge the refusal of UK visa by way of Judicial Review (JR) against the Home Office UKVI if you do not have right to file an appeal against the UK visa refusal. Judicial Review (JR) in immigration cases is a legal process whereby an unlawful refusal of UK visa and immigration application by the Home Office UKVI can be legally challenged by way of legal proceedings in the court.

Through Judicial Review (JR), the court reviews the unlawfulness of an immigration decision and if the decision is found to be unlawful, the decision is set aside by the court so that the Home Office UKVI can make a fresh lawful immigration decision of your UK visa and immigration application.
