British Citizenship

Unfortunately, the application process for visas takes a long time, and if your family visa application is denied you may not be able to appeal the decision. If you are entitled to appeal a refusal, this could take even longer than the initial submission. Such an appeal can take anywhere between 6 and 12 months.

If you want the best chance at a successful outcome, please feel free to call our immigration solicitors for initial discussion.
