Appeal rights

The purpose of the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal is to hear and decide appeals against decisions made by the Home Office and officers in diplomatic posts abroad who can issue visas. They hear cases on asylum, immigration, and nationality.

One or more Immigration Judges may hear an appeal. They are sometimes accompanied by non-legal members of the Tribunal. Immigration Judges and non-legal members are appointed by the Lord Chancellor and they are independent of the government.

Appeals are heard in a number of appeal centres around the United Kingdom. If you make an appeal, you will usually attend the hearing with your legal representative. The Home Office will also have a legal representative at the hearing, called a Presenting Officer.

The Immigration Judge, or panel, will decide whether your appeal against the Home Office decision is successful or not (this is known as the decision being ‘allowed or dismissed’). The Tribunal’s decision, called a determination, will be given to you in writing.

In certain circumstances you may be able to apply to have the Tribunal’s decision reconsidered. The Home Office may also be able to ask to have it reconsidered. There are different ways of making an application for reconsideration, depending on whether your appeal was heard by a single judge or a panel.
