There is a statutory right of appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) against the decision of the Home Office to refuse asylum and human rights claim of the asylum seeker unless the Secretary of State for the Home Office certifies the asylum and Human Rights claim as manifestly unfounded. If asylum or human rights claim is certified as manifestly unfounded and no right of appeal is given by the Home Office, the decision of the Home Office can then be challenged by way of Judicial Review in High Court.

The Notice of appeal is submitted to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) within 10 working days (5 working days if asylum seeker is detained at the time of decision and 2 working days if asylum case is being considered under the Fast Track Process) of the receipt of the refusal letter. The asylum appeal is heard by the Immigration Judge at First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber).
