Administrative Review provides a way for the UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) department to review an immigration refusal in situations where you, as the applicant, believe there has been a case working error. This can include instances where you believe that:
The decision maker failed to consider part of the application.
A decision that the application was made out of time was incorrectly applied.
The supporting documents sent were not considered or considered incorrectly.
The rules or guidance were incorrectly applied to your case.
Correct time periods or conditions of immigration leave were incorrectly calculated.
A different case worker who was not involved in the original decision will normally manage your Administrative Review application. If a case working error is discovered, the goal will be to correct the errors or oversights that may have happened during the initial review process and grant your application
A Judicial Review is where the Court reviews the lawfulness of a decision, action, or failure to act by a public body exercising a public law function, for example, UKVI.
It is important to note that a Judicial Review is not an appeal, but rather a way to challenge the decision-making process itself. In other words, it examines whether the correct procedures have been followed and the right factors have been considered by UKVI. If the Court decides the decision was unlawful, it may quash the decision and send it back to UKVI for reconsideration.
The grounds for Judicial Review are:
Illegality: UKVI must correctly understand the law that regulates its decision-making power and must give effect to it.
Irrationality: Also known as "Wednesbury unreasonableness," it applies if the decision is so unreasonable that no reasonable decision-maker could have come to it.
Procedural impropriety: This means failure to observe basic rules of natural justice or failure to act with procedural fairness
Proportionality: The action taken was disproportionate to the need for that action
Judicial Review is the remedy of last resort when all other avenues of appeal or Administrative Review have been exhausted. It can be a complex and expensive process and generally needs to be initiated quickly, usually within three months of the decision being made
Launching an appeal is a way of challenging a decision made by the Home Office if you believe it to be incorrect. Common examples of decisions that are appealed include the refusal of a visa or leave to remain, the revocation of leave, or a deportation order.
Not all UKVI decisions can be appealed. The decision letter you receive from the Home Office will state whether you can appeal a decision. If the right of appeal is unavailable then other remedies, such as Administrative or Judicial Review, may be appropriate.
An appeal typically involves a hearing before the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber). The judge will listen to both sides before deciding. If either side is dissatisfied with the decision, they may be able to appeal to the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) or, in certain cases, to higher courts.
