Changes to appeals against immigration and asylum decisions from 19 December 2011

December 12, 2011 | News

Beginning 19 December 2011, the Ministry of Justice will be introducing appeal fee charges for some asylum and immigration appeals.

Individuals who wish to appeal against a decision notice dated 19 December 2011 or later will need to pay a fee. The appeal fee will apply to most categories of visas and decisions. Any exemptions to the fees will be outlined by the Ministry of Justice. Please note that this will not affect any decision notices that are dated before 19 December 2011.

Another important change is that with effect from 19 December 2011, individuals wishing to appeal will need to lodge their appeals at the tribunal in the UK. Appeals will no longer be accepted at any overseas visa application centres.

If you have any questions regarding the above or need to understand how these changes will affect you, please send an email to one of our London Immigration Lawyers or at londoninfo@hudsonmckenzie.com.
