What is a UK Spouse Visa Appeal?

If your Spouse Visa application has been refused by the Home Office, you may have been given the opportunity to take the matter to Court, also known as the First-Tier Tribunal. An Appeal to the First Tier Tribunal is a chance to overturn that refusal decision.

You have the opportunity to present your case to an Immigration Judge and to convince the Judge (with supporting evidence) that the Home Office were wrong to refuse your spouse visa application.

When your application has been refused, it is normal to feel that giving up is the best option. However, did you know that around 50% of Home Office decisions are overturned when challenged by Applicants. This indicates that not all decisions by the Home Office are correct and there is chance that your decision can be overturned.

At Cranbrook Legal, we have a proven track record in advising our clients how to successfully overturn the decision by the Home Office. Our detailed analysis of Home Office decisions allows for us to pick out any weak points that we can target to force the decision to be overturned.

Cranbrook Legal has reputation for being understanding, tenacious and flexible in dealing with its clients to ensure the best result possible.


Depending on the particular basis of refusal, there are two ways that you can challenge the decision to refuse your spouse visa application:

  • An Appeal to the First Tier Tribunal – If the refusal letter states that you have right to appeal, you can challenge the decision in the Immigration Tribunal. This challenge should be made within 14 days (if you live in the UK) or after 28 days (if you live outside the UK)
  • An application for Judicial Review – If you have not been given the right to appeal, you can request a review of the decision from the Upper Tribunal or the High Court. This application should be made within 90 days.

What Documents are Required to Appeal a Refused Spouse Visa?

Below are the type of documents that would be needed to appeal a refused spouse visa. This is not a definitive list, as you may be required to provide additional documentation depending on your circumstances. You should therefore look to provide the following:

  • A copy of your Application
  • Copies of the supporting documents you submitted
  • Your Refusal Letter from the Home Office – UKVI
  • Summary of Points why you think the decision is wrong
