A judicial review application is made to either the High Court or the Upper Tribunal. It is a remedy of the last resort because it can only be used where there is no adequate alternative available. In terms of Part 54 of Judicial Review and Statutory Review, Civil Procedure Rules, it is essential that a claim must be filed/lodged as soon as possible and in any event, within 3 months of the decision that is being challenged. Since a judicial review consists of a series of steps viz. Pre-action Protocol (PEP), lodging judicial review, Acknowledgement of Service, A Decision “on the papers”, Oral Hearing, Reconsideration Hearing, Negotiations and Settlement, Main Hearing and Appeal, therefore, it usually takes 6-8 months before a final decision is reached.

UK Visa Refusal Reasons for Standard, Tourist, Business Visitors

Most Common UK Visa Refusal Reasons for Standard Visitors

Perhaps the first and foremost reason of refusals is the lack of understanding of an applicant to submit a well-documented application as the burden of proof is on the applicant and the decision is always made on the balance of probability. Therefore, if an applicant has not been able to submit an application with sufficient, relevant, clear and substantive evidence, then there is a little scope that an ECO will be able to grant a visitor visa. The aforesaid is applicable for not only those applicants with a limited travel history and means but also holds true for more affluent applicants i.e. applicants having had a rich travel history, frequent visits to the UK, above average income, strong social ties, etc. Visitor Visa is not a right but a privilege and the sole discretion of HM’s Government for which elaborate rules, procedures, practices, and precedents are quite well established, which has fine-tuned and improved over time. Accordingly, an ECO cannot grant a visa solely under the discretionary powers entrusted to him/her by HM’s Government, but the applicant needs to provide sufficient evidence as the burden of proof is on the applicant.
