UKVI Appeals and Judicial Reviews

Very few UKVI decisions bear the legal right to appeal, and in many cases of visa refusal your only recourse to challenge will be by way of judicial review. If you have been refused a visa, get in touch for personalised advice from our determined immigration law experts.

If your UK visa application has been refused, our experienced immigration lawyers can help you explore your options for appealing the decision. We will thoroughly review your case to determine whether you have a legal right to appeal, or whether you will need to request an administrative or judicial review instead.

At Lexus Law, we understand how distressing it can be to have a visa application rejected. Our professional immigration lawyers will provide one-to-one support to ease the bureaucratic burden of challenging Home Office decisions.

  • We will provide comprehensive support in gathering any relevant evidence for an appeal or judicial review, and can submit appeals on your behalf.
  • Judicial reviews can be stressful, drawn out, and costly, and they should be a last resort approach to challenging a UKVI decision. We will evaluate your case thoroughly and will advise on the merits, risks and likelihood of success of applying for a judicial review.
  • If your case is taken to court, we can provide you with dependable legal representation in immigration judicial review proceedings.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a UKVI appeal?

Appealing a Home Office decision involves asking a court to review the evidence you’ve provided in order to make a new decision. When you receive your visa application decision, you’ll be told whether you have the right to appeal. If you don’t have the right to appeal, you may be able to request an administrative or judicial review instead.

What is an administrative review?

An administrative review is a legal process used to ask the Home Office to reconsider their decision with regards to your visa application. Your decision letter should tell you whether you can apply for an administrative review which may be requested if you believe any of the following:

  • Financial evidence was calculated incorrectly
  • There are factual errors in the decision letter including your personal details
  • Parts of your application have been overlooked
  • Important evidence has not been considered

What is a judicial review?

A judicial review is a legal process used to challenge the way a decision has been made, usually by the Home Office or a court. If you believe that your visa application was refused unlawfully, irrationally, or unfairly, you can apply for a judicial review of your case. This review process is incredibly complicated, so we strongly recommend seeking legal guidance before applying.
