Refusal | Working in the UK | Tier 1 | Highly skil

If your application is refused, then you may have the right to appeal the decision. The appeal process is only available to those applying from inside the United Kingdom. The Home Office must provide a detailed written refusal letter to explain why your application was refused and what you must do now.

If your application has been refused from outside the United Kingdom (known as 'entry clearance'), you may also have a right to an appeal.

You must request a review of the refusal within 28 calendar days of the date the refusal notice was issued. If you have been not given a right to appeal you will have the option of judicial/administrative reviews.

What is an Administrative/Judicial review?

If you think that the UK Home Office have made an error in refusing your visa application under the points-based system, you can ask them to check our decision. This is via an administrative review. The review will look at whether your claimed points were correctly assessed by the entry clearance officer.The Judicial review means you will go in front of a judge and ask for reconsideration. The administrative review is free of charge.  The Judicial review is not free. You must ask for an administrative review no more than 28 days after the date when you receive the refusal notice.

If your application has been refused or you have no right to appeal, ICS Legal will be able to support you, giving you detailed immigration advice. Call us on 0207 237 3388 and speak to one our friendly legal advisor.
