You’ll be told in your application refusal letter if you can ask for the decision on your visa application to be reviewed. This is known as an ‘administrative review’.
You can ask for your application to be reviewed if one of the following apply:
- your application was refused
- your application was granted but you’re unhappy with the amount or conditions of your leave
This is known as an ‘administrative review’.
Apply for administrative review
If your application was refused, you must apply for an administrative review within 14 days of getting the decision. Your refusal letter will tell you how to apply. It costs £80.
You must apply within 7 days if you’ve been detained.
If your application was granted but you’re unhappy with the amount or conditions of your leave, you must email the Home Office within 14 days of getting your biometric residence permit.
The rules surrounding an administrative review for applications applied for outside of the country (entry clearance) are different, but in either instance Reeds can assist. Contact us for a no-obligation discussion on your case.
