UK Immigration Appeal Reasons, Process, Time and More

Axis Solicitors - Expert UK Solicitors

An appeal is a formal legal challenge in contradiction to the decision made by the Home Office against the immigration application.

If your application is refused, you may reserve the right to appeal against that decision or make another application with further supporting evidence. An appeal is formally requesting the judge of a court to overturn the Home Office decision by looking at the application. If you are filing appeal against the Home Office, then the first-tier tribunal is the first court you can access.

It is important to keep in mind that not all decisions made by the Home Office can be challenged and put up to the court as an appeal.
You only have a right to appeal where a decision has been made to either:

  • A claim for international protection, i.e., Asylum claim
  • Human rights claim
  • Revoke protection status

If the appeal is made from inside the UK, it should be filed within 14 days of receiving the notice of your application refusal by the Home Office. However, if the appeal is being made outside the UK, then you are required to file the appeal within 28 days of the receipt of the Home Office refusal decision.

If you miss the deadline of the appeal, you may still apply for it as an “out of time” appeal, but it would require you to provide a valid reason for doing so and explain this to the Tribunal so that the Tribunal doesn’t refuse to consider your appeal.

You must state the grounds you are relying on when applying for the appeal. These are the legal reasons and basis for your appeal and are mentioned below:

  • Your removal or the revocation of your protection status would breach the UK’s obligations under the Refugee Convention under Humanitarian Protection or Human Rights Act
  • Decision made by the Home Office is unlawful under the Human rights act

If you do not have the right of appeal, you may be able to apply for administrative review from the Home Office. Only certain types of applications allow an administrative review if refused. Read more about the administrative review for details.

If you do not have the right of appeal, you may wish to look at whether a judicial review is possible in your situation. A judicial review is not the same as an appeal – an appeal looks substantively at the issues of your case. A judicial review looks only at how the decision on your case was made.
