UK Administrative Review Process

When faced with a refused UK visa or immigration application, or dissatisfaction with granted leave conditions, navigating the complexities of administrative review becomes paramount. Our leading London Law Firm, equipped with specialist Immigration Solicitors, stands as your strategic ally in this challenging process. Instructing our team ensures a meticulous approach to your administrative review application, maximising the likelihood of a favourable outcome.

Understanding Administrative Review

Administrative review offers a vital avenue for challenging Home Office immigration decisions based on perceived case-working errors. It’s crucial to note that not all decisions qualify for this review, underscoring the importance of eligibility criteria. Our expert Immigration Solicitors specialise in identifying and challenging case-working errors, guiding you through the intricate administrative review process.

Administrative Review vs. Immigration Appeal

Distinguishing between administrative review and immigration appeal is pivotal. While both mechanisms challenge Home Office decisions, eligibility criteria vary. Administrative reviews involve an internal Home Office assessment, emphasising paper reviews without oral hearings. In contrast, immigration appeals proceed to the First-tier Tribunal, involving hearings and a comprehensive reconsideration of the decision’s merits.

Who Can Apply for Administrative Review?

Our team excels in handling a broad spectrum of immigration applications eligible for administrative review. From Tier 1 Investor and Skilled Worker to EU Settlement Scheme applications, our expertise extends to diverse immigration routes. If your application falls within this ambit, our Immigration Solicitors can provide tailored guidance on initiating an administrative review.

Grounds for Administrative Review

The sole ground for administrative review is a case-working error, defined by the Immigration Rules. Our qualified solicitors meticulously assess applications, identifying errors related to false representations, incorrect application of rules, or miscalculations in immigration leave conditions.

How to Apply for Administrative Review

Navigating the administrative review application process demands precision. Our expert immigration team streamlines this by offering comprehensive guidance on the online submission, mandatory documentation, and the intricate fee structure. Seek advice from our specialist Immigration Solicitors to enhance the effectiveness of your application.

Time Limits and Processing Times

Understanding the time constraints for administrative review is imperative. With a 14-day limit (or 7 days if detained) for in-country applications and a 28-day window for applications made outside the UK, our team ensures timely submissions. While processing times currently exceed 6 months, our Immigration Solicitors monitor your case diligently.

Potential Outcomes and Fees

The outcomes of an administrative review vary, ranging from the withdrawal of the decision to its maintenance with or without amendments. Our London Law Firm navigates these possibilities strategically, aiming for the most favourable resolution. The Home Office charges an £80 fee, but exemptions and waivers may apply, depending on individual circumstances.
