How to appeal against a visa refusal
There have been a number of recent changes to the rules and procedures on appeals against UK visa refusals and some rights of appeal have been removed altogether.
The UK Border Agency (UKBA) provides factual information on how to lodge an appeal but cannot give legal advice. For instance, if you are in the UK and have been refused on an application to extend a UK visa and wish to appeal against the refusal you can visit the UKBA's Appeals for extension, switching and settlement applications page.
If you have the right to appeal - your refusal letter should mention this - you may appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Asylum and Immigration Chamber) of HM Courts and Tribunals Service.
In cases where are not given a right of appeal, such as a removal order, you still may be able to apply to the Administrative Court for permission to lodge a Judicial Review to challenge the decision. The British legal system is fair but also complex. Laws are written by lawyers for lawyers. You will improve your chances of success if you seek specialist legal advice. CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY
