I, together with my filipina friend made the above Application for UK Visit Visa which was refused on grounds which in my opinion are both groundless and incorrect.
- Decision maker refused under Appendix V 4.2 (a) and (c), because she was a non-return/flight risk because she doesn't show sufficient ties to her home.
Apart from coming from a good home and family with whom she resides, she clearly showed in her passport many previous overseas visits for holidays and recreation purposes, including several to Australia.
My Invitation Letter undertakes that my guest would return on time and comply with all the conditions pertaining; including those of Part 1 para 35 of the Rules., that she and I would obey all laws, rules and regulations.
- The decision maker also refused under Appendix V4.2 (e) stating he was not satisfied my guest had sufficient funds, referring to her bank statement, provided only for completeness against the list of required documents.
In fact the application was based upon my Invitation Letter states clearly I am paying for everything, and my own bank statements showing substantial income and bank balances. Decision maker disregarded this. So Citing V4.2 (e) is inaccurate since the appropriate clause is V4.3 wherein we have already undertaken full compliance.
Do we really have no way of referring this back to UK Visa as stated on the Refusal Notice?
