Make an appeal

During the Covid-19 Level 4 lockdown, IACDT will be closed.

Any hearings that had been set down during the period of the lockdown have been adjourned. You will be contacted with new dates in the future, once the lockdown has been lifted.

The Tribunal is unable to process any new or existing applications during this period of lockdown, however you may wish to submit new information to the email address on the website.

Thank you for your co-operation.

To appeal a decision of the Immigration Advisers Authority, you must apply in writing to the tribunal within 20 working days of the Authority's ruling.

There’s no fee to make an appeal to the tribunal.

To make an appeal, fill out an appeal form that includes:

  • the details of your case
  • a copy of the decision being appealed
  • any other information you want the tribunal to consider.

Send or email the application to us.
