Apply for an administrative review of your application decision

Your decision letter will tell you if you can apply for a review.

If your letter says you can, you can apply below.

When to apply

You can apply if you think there has been an error in your application decision:

  • under the EU Settlement Scheme
  • under the Frontier Worker Permit Scheme, or if your Frontier Permit has been revoked
  • as an S2 Healthcare Visitor
  • as a Service Provider from Switzerland
  • for entry clearance, leave to remain or indefinite leave to remain
  • for cancellation of your entry clearance, leave to enter or leave to remain (including leave granted under the EU Settlement Scheme, as an S2 Healthcare Visitor or as a Service Provider from Switzerland) at the UK border

If you are not eligible for a review, you may have a right of appeal.

If you do, your decision letter will tell you so.

You can read the GOV.UK guidance about appealing against a decision.

You must apply within the timeline on your decision letter.

What you pay

You will pay £80 for each review.

This application is free if:

  • you applied for entry clearance
  • you did not pay a fee on your original application (except under the EU Settlement Scheme, which is £80)

You can apply again for free under the EU Settlement Scheme, if you have new evidence to give us.

Reviews for family groups

If your application was as a family group, with a main applicant and dependants applying at the same time, you can apply for a review for the whole group.

If you apply for a review of your application decision as a family group, it will cost you £80.

Evidence

The application form will tell you if you can give us new evidence for review.

If you are giving us new evidence, you must do so within 10 working days of applying online.

If you do not do this, your application for review may be refused.

What happens after the review

You can only apply for a decision to be reviewed once.

If you get a new decision after your review, or the decision is the same but based on new reasons, you may be able to apply for a review of the new decision.
