I would like to apply for a UK visitor visa for 6 month in order to visit my partner who is in the hospital right now.
However, I have already applied for a visa a year ago and got declined. Here are the details:
I am from Russia and I live in Germany for almost 3 years now. I did my Masters here and now started with my PhD in January 2022. When I applied last year I said that I am going to visit my friend (we were not yet dating at that point) and that he will provide for my stay there. I have attached his bank statements, my bank statements and his invitation letter. I also said that I am finishing my masters and applying for PhD but I forgot to attach the enrollment certificate (my bad). Plus my visa was ending as I was almost done with my masters.
They declined because I didn't provide sufficient proof that I will leave the UK (the text is in the comment), which is understandable. But I am not sure if I have enough evidence now to apply again.
I would like to apply again because my partner is in the hospital and I would like to see him.
I have started my PhD now, so I am attaching a letter from my employer stating that I am a PhD student, I will work on it for the next 4 years, I have a scholarship of 1400 and they expect me to be back in a week if I go to the UK.
I will also attach my bank statements (rn 2 k, I don't have savings).
My partner's family will also write a letter of invitation and say that I will stay with them and they will cover my expenses if my funds are insufficient.
Possibly they could also provide a paper from the hospital.
Maybe I can provide a letter from my lab colleagues and photos, that I have a strong community ties?
I am not sure I can provide much more. I would save more money on my account but I would like to see my partner as soon as possible. I wanted to pay extra for the application to be reviewed in 5 days.
I was also thinking to write a cover letter explaining the situation. Truthfully, I don't care to immigrate to the UK, I have a great position in Germany and I am planning to stay here and get a German passport at some point. I am happy with our long distance relationship and am not planning to marry. I don't know how to prove that to the UK immigration though.
Here is the UK visa rejection letter:
Any advice would be appreciated!
