A few months back, my mum applied for a tourist visa, which was refused. I felt the case officer made mistakes, which were in clear breach of the Home Office guidelines, misrepresented and ignored positive evidence. Knowing that this decision cannot be appealed, I wrote to my MP stating clearly where I think an error has been made and why the decision to refuse my mum the visa was wrong.
This was back in July. After numerous exchanges with my MP's office, I got an email from my MP today saying "the case has been reviewed by ECM and they will contact my mum directly with the outcome". Today my mum checked her email and got the below email from the Home Office about a week ago.
Does this mean the initial decision has been reviewed and they have arrived at a different outcome? Does this mean her visa will be issued considering they asked her to resubmit her passport?
