New UK Reviews Process

With effect from 4 April 2005 the Reviews Team will only accept two reviews per original application refused. From this date the reviews team will consider the grounds of refusal provided in respect of the initial work permit application and also undertake a full review of all other elements of the work permit decision.

Before making a decision they may contact the employer/representative for further information to clarify/support the evidence provided with the initial work permit application.

Where further grounds for refusal are identified the decision to maintain refusal of an application will stand even when the original ground for refusal has been overturned.

If a request for a review is unsuccessful, only one further review of the original application will be possible. If more than two requests for a review are received for the same original application they will be returned. However it will be possible to proceed with the application by completing a fresh application form, enclosing the appropriate fee.
