An Administrative Review (also referred to as Admin Review or AR) is an instrument to ‘challenge’ a decision made by UK Visas and Immigration. During the Administrative Review process, a separate team at the Home Office will review the initial decision to determine whether there was any case working errors. The Administrative Review will be successful if it is found that there was case working errors in the initial decision. Our immigration solicitors in London specialise in Administrative Review applications and are happy to arrange an initial consultation to assess whether there is merit in submitting an Administrative Review or if the decision is correct and a fresh application would be the better option.
Who can apply for Administrative Review?
Not every UKVI Applicant is eligible to apply for an Administrative Review and it will indicate in the decision letter how the decision may be challenged. Typically, the following visa Applicants will be given the right of Administrative Review:
- Settled or Pre-Settled Status applications made under the EU Settlement Scheme on or after 1 November 2018;
- Frontier Worker;
- Skilled Worker (including Sponsor Licence applications);
- Tier 1 visas;
- Tier 5 visas;
- Student and Child Student;
- Points Based System dependents.
This includes entry clearance Applicants, further leave to remain Applicants and decisions made at the border. All applications must be submitted online. Applicants outside the UK or applying under the EU Settlement Scheme will have 28 days to submit an Administrative Review and Applicants within the UK will have 14 days (unless the Applicant is detained, then they will have 7 days).
How much is an Administrative Review?
Administrative Reviews from overseas Applicants (including Frontier Worker until 6 April 2021) are free of charge. However, Applicants from within the UK will need to pay a small fee of £80 for an Administrative Review. This fee will be refunded if the Administrative Review application is invalid or successful. Unsuccessful Applicants where the initial decision is upheld will lose the fee.
Can I submit further documents with my Administrative Review?
No. Unlike other appeals, new evidence is not able to be considered during the Administrative Review process. However, the case worker may request for further evidence and in this instance, the specified further documents or information may then be provided by the given deadline.
