Administrative review (AR) Of BNO adult dependent relative (ADR) visa entry clearance refusal

If your application for entry clearance as BNO Adult Dependent Relative (ADR) 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 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 case working error in deciding the entry clearance application of the BNO Adult Dependent Relative (ADR) visa, 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 BNO Adult Dependent Relative (ADR).

If the Entry Clearance Manager (ECM) maintains the decision of the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) to refuse the entry clearance application of BNO Adult Dependent Relative (ADR), 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 BNO Adult Dependent Relative (ADR) 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 BNO Adult Dependent Relative (ADR) visa application.
