If your application for entry clearance as Sole Representative is refused by the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO), you can apply for Administrative Review (AR) of the refusal of your entry clearance application. A request for an Administrative Review (AR) should be filed within 28 days after the date of receipt of the notice of refusal from the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO).

The Entry Clearance Manager (ECM) must consider and decide the Administrative Review (AR) within 28 calendar days of the receipt of the request for Administrative Review (AR). If the Entry Clearance Manager (ECM) is convinced by the arguments presented in the grounds for Administrative Review (AR) that the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) has made caseworking error in deciding the entry clearance application of the Sole Representative, the decision of the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) to refuse the application will be reversed and the applicant will be required to submit his/her passport for the issue of the entry clearance to the Sole Representative.

If the Entry Clearance Manager (ECM) maintains the decision of the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) to refuse the entry clearance application of Sole Representative, the applicant then has the option to file Pre Action Protocol (PAP) and Judicial Review (JR) against the refusal of his/her entry clearance application. In some cases, filing a fresh entry clearance application for Sole Representative visa may be appropriate rather than challenging the refusal by way of Judicial Review (JR). It is also possible to file fresh application as well as Judicial Review (JR) against the refusal of Sole Representative visa application.
