Those who make an immigration, asylum and/or human rights claim while in the UK, as well as applications to the entry clearance officer at British embassies abroad, will normally have an in-country right of appeal to the First-tier Tribunal, mainly under the provisions of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002, against any negative immigration decisions.
If you have received a negative decision from the UK immigration authorities then please contact our offices for urgent advice. Our firm of UK immigration and asylum lawyers are specialists in providing legal representation in this particular field of work which has resulted in many successful immigration, asylum and human rights appeals.
In some instances there will be no in-country right of appeal against a negative immigration decision. For example, a claim may have been certified by the Secretary of State as “clearly unfounded” or because at the time of making the human rights application the person did not have leave in the UK. The only remedy available in such circumstances is by seeking judicial review (see our judicial review section).
Our team of immigration solicitors are experienced in dealing with appeals against many different kinds of negative immigration decisions. These decisions include the refusal of asylum and human rights claims, the exclusion of a person from the refugee convention, refusal of asylum where temporary leave is granted such as cases involving minors, refusal of leave to enter the UK (including applicants who arrive in the UK with leave that is subsequently cancelled upon arrival), refusal of entry clearance to the UK and in-country applications in all categories under the relevant immigration rules, refusal of a certificate of entitlement to the right of abode, refusal to extend leave, the making of a deportation order, refusal of European Economic Area (EEA) applications, revocation of indefinite leave and refusal of applications under the points based scheme.
We provide free legal assistance to those who are eligible for public funding. Our staff will be happy to give further information concerning this and will make an assessment of your eligibility.
