Section 68: Limitations on rights of appeal under section 67

208.Section 68 sets out a number of limitations on the right of appeal under section 67. A person will not be entitled to appeal against the destination specified in removal directions given following a refusal of leave to enter unless he is also appealing against the decision that he required leave to enter or he was refused leave at a time when he held a current entry clearance or work permit. In addition, if a person is entitled to object to a country on an appeal under section 59 or section 63 and he does not object to it, or his objection is not upheld, then section 64 does not entitle him to appeal against any directions subsequently given as a result of the refusal if their effect will be his removal to that country.
