The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) is the highest administrative body for interpreting and applying immigration laws. Although the BIA is located in Virginia, it has nationwide jurisdiction. The BIA hears appeals rendered by immigration judges or the Department of Homeland Security. Only licensed attorneys or certified BIA representatives can represent people who submit appeals to the BIA.
Although most BIA decisions are made by a DHS officer and Immigration Judge, they are subject to review in the federal court system. To appeal your decision made by an immigration judge, Form EOIR-26 must be completed and submitted. It is recommended you consult an experienced immigration lawyer to assist you in your appeal.
