In February 2018, I applied for a UK settlement visa to get married to my partner of 4 years. It was refused because, when we applied, our savings account did not have sufficient funds. I did not understand that we needed £62,500 to be in his bank account for 6 months and we only had £18,000 at the moment of application, It was refused, obviously, after 3 long months of waiting for a response.
Since it had been so many months wsince I had seen my partner, I decided to apply for a visitor visa right after my refusal. I planned to spend 6 weeks with him, while we waited to get the money needed and have it there for 6 months.
This visa was also refused, stating that my intentions might have not changed. They also pointed out that I said that the previous application was for a fiance visa but it was actually for a settlement visa .
How can I apply for a visitor without it being refused again? I want to see my partner and me going there is the only way, since he's very busy with work.
