The word “Appeal” means an application to a court for a decision to be reversed by an executive body. By lodging an appeal, you challenge the decision of the decision maker, who may have made a mistake in considering your initial application.
All visa applications made from within the UK or from overseas are not successful and for some applications, a refusal by the ECO or the UKBA triggers right of appeal for the applicant. There are rules and procedures that need to be strictly followed in order to identify the rights of appeal, lodge an appeal, observe time limitations and comply with the court procedures.
- Appeals to the Asylum & Immigration Tribunal
