The UK Immigration Appeal procedure can be complex. Our specialist lawyers are highly experienced and can represent you at the First-tier Tribunal, helping guide you through the appeal process and increasing your chances of success.
You can only appeal to the First-tier Tribunal if you have the legal right to and you will be usually notified of your right to appeal in your decision letter.
An appeal must be lodged within 14 days of the date you were sent the decision if you are based in the UK or 28 days if you have been refused entry clearance and only extended in certain circumstances.

If the Immigration Judge dismisses the appeal, we can help you to make an application for permission to appeal to the Upper Tribunal.
However, an application for permission to appeal to the Upper Tribunal can only be made if the Judge made a mistake and on the basis that there has been an error in which the law was applied. If you are granted permission to appeal further, then your case will be transferred to the Upper Tribunal.
