I am an Azerbaijani citizen and I had applied for a standard general visitor visa for my mother which just got rejected today (for 7 days). I have applied for a Tier 4 visa as well, and am still waiting for the decision.

Since she is unemployed, she financially relies entirely on her husband. My father earns a decent amount of money and can support both of us in the UK (he will providing funding for my postgraduate tuition fees and maintenance in the UK as well). He has provided his salary slip, bank statement, employment verification letter, and a copy of his passport.

My mother has a house in her name. She has deposited money in her bank account. She has provided a letter of explanation noting that she had deposited the funds received for the sale of her house. She receives a certain amount of payment of interest from her deposit on a monthly basis.

However, to our dismay, she was refused based on the reasons below:

I still have no idea why our 7-day trip is going cost 90000 pounds to my father!

How to prove that she receives regular deposits that match her bank account? Moreover, how to prove that my father is financially able to sponsor us? Can anyone suggest what should I do and what sort of documents to submit if she reapplies? I am totally confused.

Thank you in advance!

    Perhaps there was an error of currency conversion, or perhaps you put the figure 90,000 as a response to another question in the application but the ECO misread it as your response to the "cost of the trip" question, or perhaps you entered 90,000 in the "cost of the trip" field by mistake. Do you have a copy of the application, and have you reviewed it with these possibilities in mind? The refusal letter should state what currency conversion rates the officer used, which may shed some light on the matter.

    @Deoxrize The £90,000 looks like an error on the part of UKVI or in your application. Does your mother have paperwork proving the proceeds from the sale of the house? Do her statements for her deposit account show the interest she receives? Related question travel.stackexchange.com/questions/66104/…
