Our Admin Review Services

Our immigration lawyers in London regularly assist clients who believe their application for entry clearance under the point-based system has been refused by the UKBA due to an error. In this situation, the client is not entitled to a full right of appeal, however, they can apply for administrative review of the decision. There are many reasons why an administration review may be needed, for example, checking whether the applicant’s claimed points were assessed correctly.

Our leading Immigration Lawyers have great experience in winning Administrative Review requests. If you choose to work with us, a member of our team takes the time to go over the details of your case with you, pinpointing the reason your application may have failed. We can then assist you with gaining your visa. Whether it’s an administrative review tier 2, an administrative review tier 4, or any other visa type, our lawyers in London are here to help you.

It is important to note that Administrative Reviews are only an option for those outside of the UK who are trying to gain entry.

The Westkin Associate team was quick in responding to my request. My first extension for Tier 2 Visa was refused and my lawyer helped me to do the administrative review to put in a new Tier 2 Visa application. Since day one, my lawyer was efficient and very professional in explaining the circumstances and what I should do to satisfy the Home Office requirements. I considered myself lucky to work with such a knowledgeable and enthusiastic barrister.

Further detail

Detailed information about our Admin Review service

All applicants who are applying from outside of the UK are entitled to an Administrative Review, as long as it’s requested within 28 days of the initial visa refusal. The process occurs as follows:

  • An Administrative Review Request Notice is sent with the Refusal Notice.
  • The Request Notice must be completed in full and sent off to the address on the notice.
  • Applicants are not required to send other documents such as passports along with the Administrative Review Request Notice. Passports will only be requested if the refusal decision is changed.

Our Immigration Lawyers advise clients to apply for Administrative Review within the 28-day period in order to appeal the refusal. If the application is received late by the UKBA, the administrative reviewer will take into consideration circumstances that are exceptional.

If you receive an Administrative Review refusal, you cannot request a second Administrative Review. From this point, individuals will need to apply for their visa on new grounds. The applicant can then request an Administrative Review of these new grounds of refusal.

If your visa application has been refused and you’re unsure of your options, our team of immigration lawyers in London can help. We are here to offer advice on the administrative reviews process and take you through your options.

  • An Application for an Administrative Review has three possible outcomes:
  • Decisions are upheld based on the same reasons.
  • Decision is upheld with new reasons for refusal.
  • Decision is overturned and entry clearance is issued.

At Westkin, our aim is to make the third outcome the ONLY outcome. Our Immigration Lawyers are guaranteed to try their utmost to make this happen.

If you are concerned about the reasons for your UK visa being refused and need assistance applying for an Administrative Review of your case, our lawyers are on hand to make the process easier for you. Our team is ready to help you to get your UK visa granted. Get in touch today.
