FAQ's

You can file an entry clearance appeal to the First Tier Tribunal (FTT) against the refusal of your UK visa entry clearance application within 28 days of receiving the refusal decision.

 

In some cases, you will have right to file an Administrative Review (AR) instead of right to appeal against the refusal of your UK visa entry clearance application.

Where you have neither Administrative Review (AR) right nor appeal right against the refusal of your UK visa application, you can still challenge the refusal of your UK visa application by way of Pre Action Protocol (PAP) and Judicial Review (JR).

After the Appellant has filed all the documents with the court in the form of Appellant’s bundle, the Court will give directions to the Respondent to reconsider the decision refusal decision. It is quite common for the refusal decision to be withdrawn as a result of such reconsideration by the Entry Clearance Manager (ECM) of the refusal decision.

 

You must apply online for an EU Settlement Scheme family permit. You must be outside the UK to apply.

 

You can no longer apply for an EEA family permit if you are the extended family member of an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, for example their:

  • brother or sister
  • aunt or uncle
  • cousin
  • niece or nephew
