Appeal Against Refusal Of UK Spouse Visa Application & Appeal Against EEA Family Permit
The UK Government has withdrawn appeal rights against many applications. However, in the following categories, the applicant can file an appeal against refusal of UK Visa application:
- Appeal against refusal of EEA Family permit
- Appeal against refusal of EEA Permit under European Settlement Scheme EUSS
- Appeal against refusal of Spouse Visa UK Application
Appeal Against Refusal Of EEA Family Permit
The deadline to make family permit application under EEA law is 30th June 2021. All those sponsors who have retained right of residence in the UK under EU Settlement scheme can sponsor their immediate close family members and extended family members. Accordingly when these EEA family members’ EEA application to join their relative in the UK is refused; the EEA refusal attracts a right of appeal. The appeal has to be made within 28 days (outside the UK). The Appeal process is similar to UK spouse visa appeal, which is given below.
