Filipino Majestic College NVQ student makes it to the UK after his entry clearance refusal in Manila was overturned by an Immigration Judge at the AIT (Asylum and Immigration Tribunal) following an appeal.

Immigration Advisers, Bison UK, lodged the appeal after he was unfairly refused entry clearance last year.

At the hearing in Hatton Cross in April, the Judge agreed with Bison’s appeal specialist Mr Jerry Turner and allowed the appeal.

He now has a 3 year student visa to study NVQ in Health and Social Care, combined with paid work placement.

Visa appeals have been abolished for student visa refusals applying under Tier 4 in line with new ‘points based’ rules. Students refused entry clearance under Tier 4 of the points based system, which took effect on 31 March 2009, will now have their cases reviewed by an ECM under the new ‘Administrative Review’ system.

Refusals under paragraph 57 of the previous immigration rules will still be allowed a full appeal. Therefore, if your student visa application (VAF) was submitted before 31 March 2009, you should still have the right of appeal.

  1. hello,

    I just wanna ask if how long it takes to wait regarding my administrative review. I apply and send my review last October 2009 until now I don’t receive any feedback.
    I hope you can help me. My e-mail add is

    thank you very much

  2. i have been waiting for the result of my review.i applied for review on sept.the reason is they considered my i month old bank certificate.they did not notice that along with it is my latest bank statement.what should i do.i have no idea of the result of the review.can i re apply again pending review?thanks

  3. It depends on the Embassy post/hub involved, the type of review and how many they receive. As this is a new process it is difficult to say how long Administrative Reviews will take We note you have been waiting two months already. Full appeals were taking 6 to 9 months, however, a review by an ECM should not take this long.
