How to appeal a UK visa refusal?

If you are in the unfortunate situation of having received an unfavourable immigration decision such as a refusal notice, this can be appealed to the First Tier Immigration Tribunal. An appeal is a request to have a decision modified or reversed by a tribunal. This normally takes place if an error was made by a lower authority or there was some type of injustice in the lower authority's decision. Contact us at Parkview Solicitors for a free initial consultation. We will advise you if we feel an appeal is the next necessary step to resolving your immigration matter.

We provide Fixed Fee legal representation before the Immigration and Asylum Tribunals at both the First-Tier and Upper-Tier. We do not unnecessarily outsource tribunal representation to agents, maintaining our quality of service and keeping costs low for our clients.
