I am hoping to get some advice with my application for a tourist visa in the UK.
I applied for a tourist visa last December 2017 and it was rejected because I wasn't able to demonstrate strong ties to my country. Also, I stated on my application that my boyfriend invited me to visit him and indicated that I will be staying with him for 3 months (I just learned how this information might have hurt my application as well). I wasn't able to submit enough documents to prove my relationship with him and that he has enough funds to sponsor my stay in the UK.
I now have all the documents to prove our relationship amd that he can support me during my stay. My parents will also help in funding the trip and I also have some savings.
My only problem now is how to demonstrate ties to my home country. I don't own a house or any property. My parents own a house and my mom has several properties. Will it help if she indicates that she intends to have me inherit some of those?
I know that getting a job will be the best way to prove ties home but it will take a year or more before I can get a vacation if I apply for a new job. My boyfriend just wants me to experience the culture in his country. And if things go well, we intend to get married afterwards.
Do I have a chance to get my application for a tourist visa approved? Or will we have better chances if we just apply for a spouse visa?
