enter image description hereI applied for a UK visitor visa, I thought I had all my document straight forward disclosing all required information. When it came to question have you been rejected Visa, I was wrongly adviced by many applicants who got the visa to only list past 10 years since the older rejection is automatically erased from the system. Mind that I was trying to be extremely sincere with my answer and I mentioned my visa rejection to the US. AFter applying I got a rejection letter that I was a Fraud and I got a ten years Ban, it was mentioned that I withhold the information trying to deceive them. I was shocked by their reply. If I was a fraud, by all means, I would not even disclose the US visa Rejection. There is no room for Appeal unfortunately but this is unjust and harsh. I do not know if anyone had a simmilar situation and on top of that I did not have that passport nor the information regarding that rejection since my family applied for that visa and I had no idea why we were rejected nor the exact dates. anyone manage to solve similar situation.

  • The question is ‘Have you EVER been refused...”, there is no mention of within the last 10 years. It doesn’t matter that you didn’t remember why. – Traveller Jul 31 '19 at 6:46

    If you post a copy of the refusal letter with your personal details blanked out you may get a better answer. Possible duplicate of What can I do to lift a 10 year ban for making a mistake in my UK visa application? – Traveller Jul 31 '19 at 6:49
  • I should not have listened to other people advice, and funny enough they all had the visa and did the same thing, I accept the rejection but the 10 years ban is harsh, and I want to travel around the world and i do not want this to harm my application for other countreis. I am An Iranian Citizen so that adds up to everything. i have been to other countries including shengen. I also mentioned in my application if there are any areas that you need more clarification kindly contant me(there are no more interviews) – Farzi Jul 31 '19 at 7:04

    At this point there is virtually no chance for you to get a UK visa without the help of a solicitor. See the linked post for further information and links to where to find reputable solicitors. – Michael Hampton Jul 31 '19 at 7:36

    @Farzi There is no point reapplying, you will not get a visa. Read the answer to the duplicate question - your only hope is to consult an Immigration lawyer, but the chances of success are slim to zero. – Traveller Jul 31 '19 at 7:37
