If your application is refused you will be informed of the reasons for this refusal with a letter and you may lodge an appeal. The letter outlining the refusal reasons will specify the address to which an appeal should be sent.
An appeal can be made within two months of receipt of the refusal notice, and must be made in writing - fax or email appeals will not be considered.
There is no charge for lodging an appeal.
The following should be done when lodging an appeal:
You should address each refusal reason in your appeal.
You should supply clear and relevant evidence in your appeal that will address any deficiencies in your initial application.
Any further information or documentation that you wish to have taken into account should also be included with your appeal letter.
On receipt of your appeal, the Appeals Officer will review the application, taking account of any additional information or documentation that you have supplied. Provision of additional material does not guarantee approval of the application on appeal.
On examination and review the original decision may be reversed. When a decision is made, you will be notified in writing.
