My standard visitor visa application is rejected can I appeal?

There are many individuals who may want to consider an appeal when their standard visitor visa application is refused. However, you can only do so if there is a human rights ground. The problem is that this scenario is rarer than you think as most of the applications don’t engage human rights. There are particular circumstances where it can be seen valid as these appeals are made in accordance with Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

What does article 8 say?

Article 8 has two clauses.

Firstly, everyone has the right to respect for private and family life. This includes both his home as well as his correspondence.

Secondly, there should not be any public authority interfering with this right. The only reason they can interfere is when things go beyond the law. The right to respect for family, home, and correspondence, should be respected appropriately as it is in the interest of national security, public safety, and economic wellbeing. Moreover, this does help in preventing various disorders and crimes and is crucial for the protection of health and morals. Also, this complies with the protection of rights and freedoms of individuals.

When it comes to appealing, not all the applicants are recommended. The first stage is where the judge will sit down and review your application to see if it engages with human rights. So, if that particular point is missing from your visa application, there aren’t many chances that your review appeal will go any further. This leads to the wastage of time, money, as well as energy. However, if the appeal is put forward based on strong human rights ground where they are being violated, a good representation of your case can certainly make the judge ask for the review of the application.
