Changes to appeals against immigration decisions
The UK Border Agency has announced that the Ministry of Justice is to introduce appeal fee charges for some asylum and immigration appeals from 19th December 2011.
People who want to appeal against a decision notice dated 19th 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. This will not affect any decision notices that are dated before 19th December.
Also, from 19th December people will need to lodge their appeals at the tribunal in the UK. The UK Border Agency will no longer accept appeals at any of its overseas visa application centres.
