Visa refused: it stated the word ‘NSA’. What does it mean?


In some cases, there will be no rights of appeal while an applicant is in-country or inside the United Kingdom. You will be asked to leave the UK first before you can lodge your appeal. This is called Non-Suspensive Appeal or ‘NSA’ in short. The Home Office can only send NSA refusal if they can show that your application for asylum or human rights has no legitimate expectation to be granted as there is no merits on the case.

The only way to challenge this is by way of Judicial Review. Find a good lawyer /solicitor or barrister to represent you on this matter.
