The Home Office has significantly reduced the appeal rights against refusals of immigration applications as a result of implementation of Immigration Act 2014. Unless certified as a national security case under section 97 and 97A (when the right to appeal is to the Special Immigration Appeals Commission), appeals are made in the first instance to the First-tier Tribunal which can allow the appeal or dismiss it.

Under section 82 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 a person may appeal to the Tribunal where a decision has been made to either:

  • refuse a protection claim
  • refuse a human rights claim
  • revoke protection status

If you are appealing from inside the UK, the appeal should be filed within 14 days after the receipt of notice of decision and if you are appealing from outside the UK, the appeal should be filed within 28 days after the date of the receipt of the notice of decision. In certain cases, an applicant who made an in-country application may be granted out of country right of appeal which the appellant should file with the First Tier Tribunal within 28 days after leaving the UK.
