Appeal and Reviews

Appeal against a visa or immigration decision

You can appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) if the Home Office has decided to:

  • refuse your protection claim (also known as ‘asylum claim’ or ‘humanitarian protection’)

  • revoke your protection status

  • refuse your human rights claim

  • refuse you a residence document or deport you under the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016

  • revoke your British citizenship

  • refuse or revoke your status, vary the length or condition of your stay, or deport you under the EU Settlement Scheme

  • refuse or revoke your travel permit or family permit under the EU Settlement Scheme or restrict your rights to enter or leave the UK under those permits

  • refuse or revoke your permit, or deport you if you’re a frontier worker

  • refuse or revoke your leave, or deport you if you’re an S2 healthcare visitor

 

The tribunal is independent of government. A judge will listen to both sides of the argument before making a decision. If you do not have the right to appeal, you might be able to ask the Home Office for an administrative review. 

You may be able to get asylum support (such as housing and money) if you have been refused asylum.

If your EU Settlement Scheme, frontier worker or S2 healthcare visitor application is unsuccessful:

You can apply again for the EU Settlement Scheme, Frontier Worker permit or S2 Healthcare Visitor visa for free if you have new evidence to submit.

Or you can ask the Home Office for an administrative review. This costs £80. You will usually get a decision within 28 days. Your decision letter will tell you if you can apply.

You can appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber). This costs £80 without a hearing and £140 with a hearing.

You can only appeal a decision if you made your application after:

  • 11pm on 31 January 2020, for the EU Settlement Scheme

  • 10 December 2020, for a Frontier Worker permit

  • 11pm on 31 December 2020, for a S2 Healthcare Visitor visa

The deadline to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme was 30 June 2021 for most people. You can still apply if either:

  • you have a later deadline - for example, you are joining a family member in the UK who was living in the UK by 31 December 2020

  • you have ‘reasonable grounds’ for being unable to apply by 30 June 2021 - for example, you had an illness or were the victim of domestic abuse
