Administrative review

Administrative Review

If you have had a decision about your application that seems unfair, or you feel certain factors or documents were not taken into consideration, or miscalculations may have been made about your financial condition, an Administrative Review may be submitted.

An Administrative Review is available only if you are not entitled to appeal and is there to challenge the Home Office’s decision if there is unconsidered evidence.


The charge for an Administrative Review submission by the Home Office is £80. You will usually be told when your submission has been received within two days, the decision itself will usually be made within 28 days of this. The Home Office will then contact you to explain the result of your Administrative Review. If your review was unsuccessful, you may be able to submit a Judicial Review or make a new application.

An Administrative Review in effect is an attempt to persuade the Home Office to reconsider the decision made about your application. You will receive a letter from the Home Office if you are eligible to proceed with an Administrative Review.
