I am a British citizen and I have invited my 2 sons and a daughter in law to visit the UK for 13 days to attend the wedding of my youngest son. But they have been denied a visa despite having included a letter of support that I will pay for their return tickets and accommodation here in the UK.

The reasons are due to financial and economic reasons. I am genuinely inviting them just to attend the wedding then they go back to the Philippines. Can I write a letter to the British Embassy in Manila to assure them that I’m responsible to send them back home after the duration of their intended visit?

What can I do?

    Welcome to Travel StackExchange. For UK visa refusals, we normally require a scanned copy of the refusal letter, with personal details removed, so that we can understand the exact reasons. In the meantime, please read through UK visa refusal on V 4.2 a + c (and sometimes 'e') carefully, as I suspect it will help answer many of your questions. – k2moo4 May 6 '19 at 6:48

    Such assurances are meaningless because they carry no legal weight in the UK... – Moo May 6 '19 at 7:30

    I'm voting to close this question because the OP never came back to post a copy of their refusal after being asked, which prevents us from answering properly – Uciebila Oct 14 '19 at 14:42
