UK Visa Refused

UK Visa Refused

The UK immigration laws have become stricter and more complex after the COVID-19 pandemic. This has increased the number of refused UK visas who are unable to comply with the visa requirements. Today, applying for a UK visa has become a very time-consuming and expensive task for an individual. This makes a visa refusal from the Home Office a very irritating and devastating experience. With the increasing number of immigrants and the prices of visa applications, it has become really important to get a successful visa application right in the first place. As an immigrant, it is always better to get advice from UK immigration experts to get a successful visa.

Common Reasons for UK Visa Refusal

A UK Visa might get refused for a number of reasons. The following are some of the most common reasons for visa refusals.

The Home Office pays huge attention to every detail of your documents and evidence. This means that every document should be drafted uniformly and according to the guidelines. Any small mistake might lead to visa refusal. We recommend organising all of your documents in chronological order and displaying all the necessary information clearly. An immigration solicitor from Osbourne Pinner can provide you with huge help in drafting the documents and going over your visa application to have everything arranged in the correct order.

This one mainly applies to the individuals trying to apply for a spouse visa. Unable to provide sufficient evidence of the relationship is the common reason for a visa refusal. The Home Office must be satisfied that your current relationship is genuine and sustaining. Thus, it is important to prove that you and your partner have been living together (provide evidence of children as well). You can also show that you have arranged your finances together and have a joint bank account to prove that you are committed.

The Home Office is very strict if you have made any simple administration error and will penalise you with a visa refusal. Each immigration route (Visa category) provides certain facilities and has particular requirements. You cannot just apply for any visa without checking on the eligibility requirements and purpose. Applying for the incorrect visa means that you are unable to meet the eligibility criteria of the visa. Thus, it will be simply refused.

This applies only to the individual applying for the UK Visitor Visa. If you have mentioned a very long itinerary (for example, one month) for your Visit Visa application, then it is very likely to get refused. The United Kingdom is a relatively small country, and you would need only a few days to explore the nation. Thus, having a long itinerary makes your application appear suspicious. Plus, staying in the UK is expensive. You must be having enough funds to justify your itinerary in the UK. A 7-10 itinerary is quite enough to explore the country under the Tourist Visa route.

Forgetting or intentionally not mentioning your previous visa refusal might lead to another refusal. The Home Office is very strict in cross-verifying information from various sources. Thus, you should use only the real information and disclose any visa refusal from any country. The UK Home Office might cross-verify your information and share it with other countries.

It is very important to include detailed information on your past convictions when applying for a UK visa. If you avoid mentioning the details, then it will be simply treated as deception with the Home Office, and your visa will be refused immediately. Furthermore, any deception can also lead to a ban of ten years to enter the United Kingdom.

The visa process itself is an incredibly complex and expensive process. Handling everything on your own or taking advice from an unprofessional can cause visa refusal. Hiring a professional immigration solicitor will help you go through a visa application without any hassle—their advice and experience far better results than casual advice from friends or family members. Working with Osbourne Pinner can give you that assurance you need for successful immigration.

The Visa application forms from the Home Office may not have enough fields to add every single detail about you and your purpose as an immigrant. Thus, attaching a cover letter becomes additional support to include every single necessary detail and convince visa officers that you are genuine immigration and have no ill intent. The detailed cover letter should include information about your itinerary for your UK visit, financial condition, travel history, intention to return back to your country, etc. This cover letter should not exceed one use. We recommend writing with bullet points instead of paragraphs so that understanding becomes much easier. It is important to make the letter concise and clear. However, at the same time, try to include as much critical information you can.

How Can Osbourne Pinner Help You?

Osbourne Pinner solicitors can help you learn about the real reasons for rejection and submit your immigration visa appeal if you think that rejection was unfair. Our experienced immigration solicitors can help you in the following circumstances:

Administrative Review

The UK immigration policies require the individuals who have received a refusal to make an immigration appeal within 28 days of receiving the refusal letter. This appeal should consist of every piece of valid information to justify why you should be granted a visa. However, if you have entered the country and your visa gets refused, you can appeal that decision. The application refusal letter will tell if you can for another review on the application. You can use administrative review if you do not possess the right to appeal. You can ask for another review of your application got refused, but you’re unsatisfied with the amount or condition of your leave. You must stand for an administrative review within 14 days of refusal.

Oral Appeals

If you want to apply for an oral appeal, you must know that you and your sponsor must provide evidence in the Tribunal. However, if you have applied from outside the UK, you won’t appear in the Asylum and Immigration tribunal. Thankfully, it is still possible for your sponsor to give oral evidence on the hearing day.

Paper Appeals

If you want to lodge a paper appeal, then no one has to appear at the Asylum and Immigration tribunal. The appeal will completely depend on the documentation evidence that you have submitted.

Success in Visa Appeals

It is not possible to give a 100% guarantee that every appeal will be successful, but we have an amazing track record of successful visa appeals. There are so many external factors from the client side that might affect a successful visa.

Appeals and Judicial Reviews

It is possible to appeal to the Home Office on your own. However, your chances of success will be very slim.

I asked to review my financial settlement. Within a matter of a short time, I got an appointment. My solicitor, was very professional and kind. She even offered me the chance to have a video conference if I was unable to go to the office. I felt comfortable and I was treated with respect. I felt confident in her capabilities. She was warm and put me at ease. The process was made very easy for me. Osbourne Pinner family law team was on top of my brief to them. Should I need a solicitor in the future, I will be very happy to go back. Thanks

Very Professional and responsive I instructed Osbourne Pinner Solicitors for my UK Start Up visa. I was so pleased with the whole immigration team. Solicitor Ravi and Ardra dealt with my UK Start Up process. I was so pleased with the way they dealt with the whole process. Everything was so smooth. Both of them were so responsive throughout the whole process. Ms. Ardra updated me all the time. My Endorsement decision came in less than 3 weeks. Their in house business strategist was very supportive and helpful too. The way they provided me support during all the workshops with the business strategist and then preparing me for the endorsement body, it was like a hand holding thing for me. I am so grateful for all their support. It has been fortunate for me to find Osbourne Pinner. Thank you for all your support and help throughout the tricky process. I am so pleased to receive my successful start up visa endorsement with Osbourne Pinner. I can not wait to see the whole team after my visit to the UK with my family. I will highly recommend your services to Osbourne Pinner.

Osbourne Pinner, and in particular their family law team were recommended to me by a good friend and trustworthy source. I have found in my dealings with them that they go the extra ‘proverbial mile’ in trying to help. This is not something I have experienced before with any other of the big family law firms. I am very happy with the service and will now recommend to my family, friends and colleagues.
