Administrative review: case working errors

The following Immigration guidance note Produced in partnership with Christopher R. Cole and Nathan Woodcock of Parker Rhodes Hickmotts provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • Administrative review: case working errors
  • Case working errors
  • Limits on evidence at administrative review

Administrative review is the main remedy which is available to challenge immigration decisions on applications which are not human rights or asylum claims. It is an internal review of a Home Office decision, conducted by a Home Office official who is different to the original decision-maker.

Administrative review is available from both inside and outside the UK. Eligibility and procedure for administrative review can differ depending on whether it is requested in respect of an in-country decision, an entry clearance decision, a decision made under the Immigration Rules, Appendix EU or certain cancellation decisions at the border. See Practice Note: Administrative review.

This Practice Note looks at a second aspect of eligibility in relation to applications submitted under the Immigration Rules, Appendix AR, ie what are the ‘case working errors’ that can be considered for eligible decisions. This Practice Note is not relevant to administrative review applications submitted under the Immigration Rules, Appendix AR (EU), for whom a different set of ‘Consideration’ grounds apply.

Case working errors

An application for administrative review under the Immigration Rules, Appendix AR can only be considered where it is contended that there has been case working error of an eligible decision. For details of what are eligible decisions, see Practice Note: Administrative review — Eligible decisions under Appendix AR.
