    Judicial Review

    Here at IAS, we know that a refused immigration application can cause great distress, particularly for those who are under time constraints/pressures.

    Your application may have been refused for a number of reasons, however you may be eligible to appeal against this decision by seeking an Administrative or Judicial Review.

    Judicial Review is a process which challenges the decision, action or failure to act by a public body exercising a public law function.

    It is not always possible to appeal against a decision as a Judicial Review is dependent on the specific circumstances and reason(s) for refusal. However one of our immigration lawyers in Ireland will assess your personal situation in order to determine your eligibility.

    Decisions made by INIS (Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service) can be extremely complex – we would always recommend seeking the legal advice of an immigration expert who can manage this process and act as your legal representative.

    To enquire about IAS’ Judicial Review service, get in touch with our client-care team on (+353) 061 518 025.

                Frequently Asked Questions

                A Judicial Review is a procedure whereby one of IAS’ dedicated, experienced immigration lawyers will represent you in a challenge against your refused immigration application.

                This procedure allows you to appeal against the decision of the State and public bodies. It is a way for the High Court to monitor the lower courts, tribunals and administrative bodies, ensuring that the decisions made are lawful.

                It is different from a standard appeal in that a Judicial Review questions how the final decision has been reached rather than if the decision itself is right or wrong.

                Contact us on (+353) 061 518 025 to enquire about a Judicial Review.

                Some primary examples of public decisions relevant to immigration which may be subject to judicial review are:

                • Refusals of an Irish passport, marriage certificate or visa
                • Decisions to deport asylum seekers
                • Decisions of the Legal Aid Board and the Law Society
                • Decisions of tribunals including the Refugee Appeals Tribunal

                One of IAS’ immigration law specialists will evaluate your personal circumstances and advise on how we can proceed. If you are eligible to appeal against a refusal, we can aid you throughout the entire process.

                If you are ineligible to appeal against your application decision, our immigration lawyers can provide you with invaluable guidance and legal advice regarding your next steps.

                Get in touch with us on (+353) 061 518 025.


                Depending on your specific situation, one of IAS’ immigration lawyers may be able to appeal against your refused immigration application.

                If your visa or Irish passport application was refused, for example, you may be eligible to appeal this refusal. An appeal does not necessarily have to be a Judicial Review – our Appeal Package may be best suited to you.

                One of our immigration lawyers will determine which procedure is relevant to your personal circumstances.
