(1) Figures rounded to the nearest 5 ( - = 0 * = 1 or 2) and may not sum to the totals shown because of independent rounding.
(2) Appeal outcomes do not necessarily relate to appeals received in the same period.
(3) Appeal outcomes by date the notification from the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal was received at the appropriate Post. This is
    different to Table 5.1, which shows data by appeal decision date. Differences can also arise due to administrative procedures at
    individual posts or should there be a delay in the reporting and recording process (e.g. due to geographical location).
(4) Appeals are made to the post that the visa application was made to; this is not necessarily reflective of the country of nationality of
    the applicant. Posts with fewer than 10 appeals received are listed under 'Other posts'.
(5) Decisions and subsequent appeals on applications submitted to Algiers from 2 November 2008 have been dealt with in London.
