People who have been refused entry to the UK or have had their British nationality revoked by the Secretary of State may wish to make an appeal against this decision and will require professional legal representation to give them the best possible chance of success. Dealing with the intricacies of UK immigration law requires in-depth knowledge and our solicitors in Manchester have years of experience providing successful representation and helping people receive the right to remain in the country.
There are two tribunals in the UK courts that deal with immigration appeals, each of which contains chambers for both asylum and immigration cases:
- First-tier tribunals, which deal with the decisions made by the UK Border Agency, such as those relating to visa applications
- Upper tribunals, which deal with challenges against decisions in the first-tier tribunal
In certain circumstances, the decisions reached in the upper tribunal can be challenged again in the Court of Appeal.
There are a number of centres throughout the UK that deal with immigration appeals and these cases typically involve solicitors from the UK Border Agency and a legal representative for the applicant, who will discuss the unique circumstances of the immigration refusal. A judge or panel of experts will then deliberate before deciding weather to approve or reject the appeal. This is known as a ‘determination’ and is issued to the applicant in writing.
