You can apply for an Administrative Review of Health and Care Worker visa refusal if your application as a Health and Care Worker is refused by Home Office UKVI. You can apply for Administrative Review (AR) of refusal of following applications as a Health and Care Worker migrant:

  • entry clearance for Health and Care Worker visa;
  • switching into Health and Care Worker visa;
  • renewal/extension of Health and Care Worker visa;
  • ILR as a Health and Care Worker.

Administrative Review (AR) Of Health and Care Worker Entry Clearance Refusal

If your application for entry clearance as a Health and Care Worker is refused by the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO), you can apply for Administrative Review (AR) of the refusal of your entry clearance application. A request for an Administrative Review (AR) should be filed within 28 days after the date of receipt of the notice of refusal from the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO).

The most common reason for refusal in Health and Care Worker Entry Clearance application is normally based on the allegation by the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) that the applicant is not a genuine Health and Care Worker. It is very common for the Entry Clearance Officers (ECOs) to derive adverse inferences from the contents of the immigration interview of the applicant in alleging that the applicant is not a genuine Health and Care Worker.

The Entry Clearance Manager (ECM) must consider and decide the Administrative Review (AR) within 28 calendar days of the receipt of the request for Administrative Review (AR). If the Entry Clearance Manager (ECM) is convinced by the arguments presented in the grounds for Administrative Review (AR) that the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) has made caseworking error in deciding the entry clearance application of the Health and Care Worker, the decision of the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) to refuse the application will be reversed and the applicant will be required to submit his/her passport for the issue of the entry clearance to the Health and Care Worker.

If the Entry Clearance Manager (ECM) maintains the decision of the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) to refuse the entry clearance application of Health and Care Worker, the applicant then has the option to file Pre Action Protocol (PAP) and Judicial Review (JR) against the refusal of his/her entry clearance application. In some cases, filing a fresh entry clearance application for Health and Care Worker visa may be appropriate rather than challenging the refusal by way of Judicial Review (JR). It is also possible to file fresh application as well as Judicial Review (JR) against the refusal of Health and Care Worker application. 

Administrative Review Against Refusal Of An In-Country Application As A Health and Care Worker

You can apply for Administrative Review (AR) if your application for:

The Administrative Review (AR) must be filed within 14 days from the date of receipt of the UKVI refusal letter. The review of the refusal of your Health and Care Worker visa application will be done by a different person, but using the same documents and facts sent with your original application. If the result of the Administrative Review (AR) is that the Home Office withdraws its original decision and grants you leave to remain in the UK (permission to stay), your fee paid for Administrative Review (AR) will be refunded. You should get a decision within 28 calendar days. The Home Office, UKVI will write to you if they think it will take longer. You cannot be removed from the UK whilst your request for Administrative Review (AR) is pending consideration with the Home Office, UKVI.

If the Home Office UKVI maintains its decision to refuse your application as a Health and Care Worker Migrant, you then have the option to file Pre Action Protocol (PAP) and Judicial Review (JR) against the refusal of your application. In some cases, filing a fresh application as a Health and Care Worker may be more appropriate rather than challenging the refusal by way of Judicial Review (JR).
