I've been refused a visitor Visa because I did not demonstrate where my money came from in the bank statement.

I'm willing to reapply and demonstrate it once and for all.


I have a question: when they find a major hole like this one do they look for more and mention it or they just state the major one and be satisfied and just ignore the rest of the files even if potentially they would've find something they dont like?

    It’s most likely they stop at the first point of failure - why spend time on further assessment when the answer is already clear? It may help you to read UK visa refusal on V 4.2 a + c (and sometimes 'e') – Traveller Feb 8 at 11:16

    I agree that the linked question is helpful but people are voting to close as a duplicate and it isn't. This question is quite clear, quite different and not answered there. Do UK visa officers identify every significant problem with an application, or do they stop as soon as they have enough to reject? – David Richerby Feb 8 at 12:35
  • @David richerby exactly... thank you – james smith Feb 8 at 12:53
  • It help to have an other person to review your application with critical (negative) eyes. Often people tend not to write many important facts, assuming that they are obvious. Do not assume officer will know the actual school system (bank system, salary payment methods) of your country. Or also what make you linked to your hometown is often not clear from foreign eyes. Try to put facts and proof to that facts. Your words (without proofs) are often not so much trusted. About bank testaments: do not try to send the minimum (especially if the situation is not 100% stable). – Giacomo Catenazzi Feb 8 at 13:31
  • No, really, people, this is not a duplicate of UK visa refusal on V 4.3 a + c (and sometimes 'e'). I already explained this. – David Richerby Feb 13 at 10:57
