No Right of Appeal

There is no right of appeal against the refusal of an application for entry clearance as a Family Visitor. However there is nothing to be worried about as the refusal can still be challenged by way of a Judicial Review in the Upper Tribunal of the Asylum and Immigration Chamber.

Judicial Review against Refusal of Family Visitor UK Visa Application

An application for permission to apply for Judicial Review must be lodged in in the Upper Tribunal of the Asylum and Immigration Chamber within 90 days of the date of the refusal of the application. A pre-action protocol is served on the Entry Clearance Officer or the Home Office before initiating a Judicial Review application. Please take a look at the Judicial Review section of this website for further information.
