No Right of Appeal

There is no right of appeal against the refusal of a UK visa application for entry clearance as parent of a child at school. However there is nothing to be worried about as the refusal can still be challenged by way of a Judicial Review in the Upper Tribunal of the Asylum and Immigration Chamber or the High Court, as the case may be.

An application for permission to apply for Judicial Review must be lodged in the Upper Tribunal of the Asylum and Immigration Chamber or the High Court, as the case may be within 90 days of the date of the refusal of the UK visa application for Parent of a Child at School. A pre-action protocol is served on the Entry Clearance Officer or the Home Office before initiating a Judicial Review application.
