Where are UK Visa Appeals heard?

UK Visa Refusal appeals are heard in a number of hearing centres throughout the United Kingdom. The tribunals are known as the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber).  The tribunals are independent from the government. In addition to UK visa appeals they are responsible for dealing with asylum, European and nationality. The decisions appealed are made by the:

  • Secretary of State for the Home Department (in the United Kingdom) ;
  • Entry Clearance Officer (outside of the UK);
  • Immigration Officers (at ports of entry in the UK).

The main types of UK visa appeal cases against decisions are:

  • Appeal against a refusal of a United Kingdom entry visa to a migrant, or
  • An immigration appeal against a refusal to allow an immigrant permission to remain;
  • Appeal against decisions to deport someone in the UK;
  • Appeals on Asylum and Human Rights Refusals; or
  • Appeals against the denial of nationality.

    We don’t do immigration ourselves but are we correct in thinking that the rules on highly qualified immigrants have been tightened up this year ?

    • Thank you for your comment. In fact the position is quite the contrary. Have a look at our post on

      The UK is open for business.

    My point of view this is entirely right. When I read this article I got useful information about visa refusals and immigration. I think immigration is necessary for registration. And my point of views all constitution of law prefer immigration based primarily. I am impressed with your writing skills.

    • Hi John,
      Thank you for your comment. The difficulty I have found is that people will ask friends and family what they did to obtain a visa, but will disregard getting proper legal advice. In fact I bet many people even in the UK do not know that it is in fact a CRIMINAL OFFENCE to give UK immigration law advice when not qualified to do so! I can understand why too becasue immigration affects the very lives of people as oppose to just business and so in the interests of protecting people it is rightly so, isn’t it?
