I applied twice for a UK visa and both were refused despite being born there. The first time was a child visitor visa i was 17 years old. I was going to visit my french citizen brother living in UK but I forgot to provide a key document which is a copy of his passport.
The second time was a standard visitor visa I was 19 with both my parents (they both obtained their visas) i got a refusal and could not appeal , the reason of the refusal was that i provided a school certificate of the past year so there for i had no ties to my country , but i applied in mid summer during the summer break, registrations for the following year hadn't started yet so it was impossible to provide them a certificate of the upcoming academic year (i was still in high school)
So a year later now things changed i'n in university and want to apply for a third time i will be staying in a hotel and the key documents that i will provide are : my fathers bank statements , my university attendance certificate , hotel reservation and want to include a letter to the immigration officer explaining that I want to visit the UK to enjoy the festivities and that i might seem desperate to get to the UK but I have no intention to over stay or settle and that i want to visit as a tourist and that i have to comeback to pursue my studies.
So my question is should I provide the letter or not? My father told me it's too much blabla and will complicate things.
Also the question to why is your father paying for your trip? Should I say because I'm a student or give them a more detailed answer?
