Administrative Review (Refusal of Application)

You may apply for an Administrative Review if you believe that the decision to refuse your entry clearance application was incorrect. An Entry Clearance Manager who was not involved in the original decision will conduct the review. In some cases, the Entry Clearance Manager may be located at a different entry clearance post to where your original entry clearance application was considered.
You may only apply for one Administrative Review of the decision to refuse your application. You may not submit any new or further information/documents in support of your request for Administrative Review, unless you were refused entry clearance under paragraphs 320(7A) or 320(7B), and they relate to that. Otherwise if you wish to submit new information or documents, you will have to make a fresh application.
