If your application is refused you will be informed of the reasons
for this refusal and you may lodge an appeal. The letter outlining
the reasons for refusal 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.
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. If
the Appeals Officer does not alter the decision you will be
notified in writing.
