Application for Administrative Review
If you have applied for a Visa under the Points Based System outside of the UK, and your Entry Clearance has been refused an appeal is limited to the fact that the decision was unlawful discrimination by a public authority or that the decision was unlawful under s.6 of the Human Rights act; a decision made which is incompatible with the ECHR Rights. Nonetheless the most common rebate to a refusal of this type is for Administrative Review.
Has your visa application been refused by the UKVI? If so you may be able to apply for an Administrative Review or Judicial Review of the decision, contact us now to speak with one of our specialist immigration solicitor’s who will advise you on the most appropriate action to take.
Administrative Review is a non statutory scheme which can be found in the Home Offices guidance notes. There is no fee for this and a request for review must be made to an Entry Clearance Manager, it must be submitted 28 days after refusal notice is received. It is imperative that you submit this within 28 days as it is likely to be rejected unless you can show exceptional circumstances. A decision on an Administrative Review will normally be completed within 28 days.
Administrative Reviews will only consider points which applicants have specified to be reviewed and checked, therefore it is of great importance to seek legal advice before proceeding with an administrative review. It is possible that the a refusal may be overturned, and entry clearance granted where;
– Evidence was not properly considered when application was submitted
– Immigration Rules were not applied correctly; or
– There was a mistake in processing the application
There is also an option of Administrative Review if you are inside of the UK, if circumstances are met. It should also be noted that since introduction of new legislation in 2014 this is the only right to appeal a decision in a points based application.
