What happens If Your Application Is Rejected

Do not lose hope if your application is initially rejected. You can request an administrative review if you believe there has been a caseworker error. Alternatively, a judicial review allows for court reassessment. If these are not viable, reapplying with corrected or additional information is also an option.

Navigating the Skilled Worker visa application requires careful preparation and attention to detail. By understanding common pitfalls and how to avoid them, you can enhance your chances of securing the right to work in the UK.
