You can challenge the decision of the Home Office to refuse your application for stay in the UK by way of appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) if you have been given a right of appeal against the refusal of your application. The appeal to the First Tier Tribunal should be filed within 10 working days (5 working days if the appellant is in detention) from the date of receipt of the refusal letter.
If you have not been given right of appeal against the refusal of your application, there may be a possibility to challenge the refusal by way of Judicial Review in High Court or, alternatively, a fresh application may be submitted to the Home Office in some cases.
