administrative reviews

You can ask the Home Office for a Visa Administrative Review.

Outside the UK

If you have applied for a visa from outside the UK, your application refusal letter will outline whether you can ask for the decision on your visa application to be reviewed. This review is known as an ‘administrative review’.

If you want to apply for an Administrative Review, you must do so within 28 days of getting your refusal decision. The fee for an administrative review is £80. This decision will be checked for any errors that you point out and the result of the administrative review will be with you within 28 calendar days.

In this duration if you make any other visa application, the administrative review will automatically be cancelled.

You can only ask for an administrative review if all the following apply:

  1. You applied outside of the UK.
  2. You are outside the UK.
  3. Your application was refused on or after 6th April 2015.
  4. You do not have a right of appeal against the refusal.

Inside the UK

If you have applied from inside the UK, you can ask for your application to be reviewed if one of the following apply:

  1. Your application was refused.
  2. Your application was granted but you’re unhappy with the leave conditions.

If your application was refused, apply for administrative review within 14 days of getting the decision. Your refusal letter will tell you how to apply. Once again, this decision will be checked for any errors that you point out and the result of the administrative review will be with you within 28 calendar days.

Your request will be rejected if you make any other immigration application, ask for your passport back so you can travel or leave the UK.

DO

  • Keep an eye out on the date by which you must apply for an administrative review.
  • Make sure you pay the £80 fee for an administrative review.

DONT

  • Forget to check your eligibility.
  • Leave it too late to apply for an administrative review if you are not happy with the decision.
