Can you provide me some explanation why my father's UK general visa was refused?
He is retired, receives pension and he did provide his bank statement, he also provided documents that prove he owns a property in his home country.
I want to cover all his expenses, that is why I provided my bank statement. I'm not sure if the amount was not sufficient? He also stated on his application that I'm going to provide him with accommodation. Unfortunately, I didn't provide proof that I own a house in London. Would this fix the issue, if he reapplies? Shall I provide land registry documents or my mortgage documents?
What seems strange is they are asking why my father hasn't visited me for 4 years. I don't think it's their business, to be honest! We were just settling in with my wife, now finally we have our own property, we also had a son and now he is 2 years old and it is more manageable to have visitors and leave him with his granddad occasionally. My wife is a stay at home mum and during my dad's visit she was planning to look for jobs, go for interviews as my dad would be extra help with childcare. Shall I explain these reasons?
What other paperwork should my father provide? Should I write a cover letter explaining all the circumstances about providing accommodation and funds and why we he didn't come to visit us for the past 4 years since we are in UK ?
Thanks in advance!!
