Application for an extension of the time limit for making an appeal

If you want to make an appeal after the time limits have expired, the VTE President may authorise an appeal to be accepted where he is satisfied that you missed the deadline because of circumstances beyond your control.

You should complete this form to send with your appeal form. Your application must include the reasons why you did not make an appeal on time. Before considering your application the VTE may ask you to provide further information or obtain the views of the other party in writing or by attending a hearing.

We will let everyone involved in the appeal know the outcome. If your late application is rejected, there is no right of appeal against that decision.

For more information, please read the Practice Statement on Extension of Time Limits for Making Appeals.

Please contact us if you have any questions or need any help completing this form. Our phone number is 033 123 2035.
