Handling Appeals And Admin Reviews Successfully

Appeals are a complex and demanding area of immigration law. Different bodies of law and rules impinge on appeal work throughout the process, from rights of appeal to admissibility of evidence to appealing to the Upper Tribunal.

Who Can Request An Appeal?

If you have an immigration application refused – either in the UK or outside the UK – you may or may not have a full right of appeal against the refusal decision. It is very important to check this. Whether you have a full right or not depends on various factors: whether it is an in-country or out of country application, what kind of application it is, whether you had immigration leave when you submitted the application, and whether you still held leave when the decision was made.

What Is The Appeals Procedure?

If you do have the right of appeal, you must make a very important decision about whether to appeal or else start again with a fresh application. There are different factors to take into account. Any appeal – whether the application was made in the UK or outside it – is held before the First-Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber), which has various hearing centres in the UK.

Deciding whether to have an oral hearing or a hearing on the papers is also highly essential. Certain types of case may benefit strongly from an oral hearing; other types of case less so. If your appeal is unsuccessful, you may be able to challenge the decision with the Upper Tribunal.
