Administrative Reviews

If you have extended your visa inside the UK and notice your new visa has the incorrect conditions or length of leave, you may want to apply for an administrative review. 

An administrative review costs £80. The fee will be refunded to you if the Home Office agree a mistake was made. 

You must email the Home Office within 14 days of getting your biometric residence permit.
