REASONS FOR REFUSAL
You have applied for a visa to visit the UK. In deciding whether you meet the requirements of Appendix V: of the Immigration Rules for visitors (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/immigration-rules/immigration-rules-appendix-v-visitor-rules), I have considered:
- your application and any additional relevant information you have provided with it
- your immigration history
I have refused your application for a visit visa because I am not satisfied that you meet the requirements of paragraph(s) V4.2 of Appendix V because:
You have applied to visit the United Kingdom for 16 days for Tourism.
I note that you state your father will be paying towards the cost of your visit and you have provided supporting information of your father's circumstances. However I have to take into account your own current circumstances within Nigeria. You state that you are a student and do not have any other income. You state that you spend 30000.00 NGN (£56.12) on your living expenses per month. However from the information you have provided it does not demonstrate that how you support yourself on a daily basis. I am not satisfied you have demonstrated your own personal circumstances or that they are as such that you can be relied upon to meet the requirements of entry clearance as a visitor.
Furthermore you state that you are personally planning to spend 100000.00 NGN (£187.07) on your proposed visit to the UK and no one else will be contributing to the costs of your visit. However from the information you have provided it has not been demonstrated that you have access to funds of your own. As a result I am not satisfied that you will have access to funds to support your personal trip costs throughout your visit nor that have you provided an accurate reflection of your personal and financial circumstances.
In light of all of the above, I am not satisfied that you intend to leave the United Kingdom or that you are genuinely seeking entry as a visitor or that you have sufficient funds to cover all reasonable costs in relation to their visit without working or accessing public funds. Your application is therefore refused under paragraph V4.2 (a) and (c) of the Immigration Rules.

This is concerning a UK visa. I know someone has asked a similar question, but my issue is that my monthly spendings are not consistent. I also do not have a job and my only "income" is from the money I get as an allowance. Sometimes my mum sends money into my account to hold it for her, which is around 10 times what I normally spend. Sometimes I also win money from betting. Should I make an average of the last six months' expenditure? I'm trying to be as accurate as possible.
I am Nigerian, in my early twenties. I am still in university (I have a letter from my dean) and I am going for a family Christmas vacation. I am staying for two weeks and my dad is paying for everything.
