Appeal Rights - Immigration Advice
Immigration and asylum appeals are heard by Judges of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, initially sitting in the First
If the First Tier Tribunal judge refuses an appeal, you can apply for permission to appeal
to an Immigration and Asylum Chamber Upper Tribunal Judge.
Many categories of immigration applicants who have had their immigration or asylum applications refused attract a
right to appeal before the Immigration and Asylum Chamber of the First Tier Tribunal. However, some categories
have more limited rights of review against Home Office decisions.
To be clear about your appeal rights and the strict time limits which apply, take advice early.
If you have missed your deadline it may be possible to request an extension.
