If you have been refused a UK visa you may be able to make an appeal to the Home Office.

While not every decision can be appealed, it may be possible to seek an Administrative or Judicial Review of your negative decision. Judicial Review is the procedure to challenge the decision, action or failure to act of a public body exercising a public law function.

Immigration appeals and reviews of Home Office decisions can be a complex process to submit. Getting advice from an experienced lawyer is highly recommended before you continue.

What is a Judicial Review?

If you have been refused a UK visa, a Judicial Review is the name given to a court proceeding undertaken to review your Entry Clearance decision.

Judicial Reviews are a type of immigration appeal. They differ from other appeals as they challenge how the final decision has been reached rather than if the decision itself is right or wrong.
