Immigration Judicial Review JR application in the Upper Tribunal of Immigration and Asylum Chamber UTIAC or High Court


In Immigration matters a Judicial Review JR is the most effective remedy where no alternative remedy is available e.g. the Home Office has not granted a right of appeal or administrative review or statutory right of administrative review has been exhausted etc. The Applicant can challenge the original and any subsequent decision within 90 days from the date of the refusal on form T480 UTIAC Judicial Review Claim Form. Generally, the first step being a Pre-Action protocol letter is issued to the Home Office before initiating Judicial Review JR process in the Upper Tribunal. After the Pre Action protocol has been served on to the Home Office and you do not agree with the response from the Home Office or Home Office has not responded to your Pre- action; we can issue a claim form in the Upper Tribunal for permission to apply for Judicial Review. Initially the Upper Tribunal UTIAC shall decide on papers applications for (permission to bring) judicial review against decisions of the Home Office i.e. Secretary of State for the Home Department, entry clearance officers ECOs and others official acting on behalf of Home Office.

If judicial review permission application has been refused on papers, the applicant can make an application for renewal of permission for Judicial Review JR within 9 days. This application for the permission shall be decided at a court hearing. Should the permission application is granted at either stage; the Judicial Review JR will be listed for substantive hearing. On the other hand should the permission to apply for Judicial Review JR is refused and permission to appeal to court of appeal is also refused by the Upper Tribunal; an application can then be made to the Court of Appeal for permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal against the both orders of the Upper Tribunal refusing permission to apply for Judicial Review.

Following are some of the circumstances when a permission to apply for Judicial Review application in the Upper Tribunal UTIAC JR proceedings may be lodged against the decision of the Home Office, UKBA:
