I had recently applied for a UK visit visa from Pakistan along with my mother to visit my aunt. My visa got refused because they said that I had not submitted my bank statement (which I did).

I even sent a pre action protocol letter with the PDF from VFS that contained the list of documents I had attached. They outrightly denied that they had received the bank statement.

Now I have a few questions:

  1. I received Australia visa after my UK refusal so should I reapply right now or after I come back from Australia? Currently I have only traveled to Dubai and Turkey.

  2. If I am to reapply, should I apply as a lone traveler or should I mention my aunt? (considering that family ties in UK might count as a negative)

  3. Is there any other way apart from reapplying/Judicial review to fix this issue?

Are you planning to go to the UK before Australia? If not - apply after you're back, you'll show that you've returned home from a visit to a similar country before.

If I am to reapply, should I apply as a lone traveler or should I mention my aunt? (considering that family ties in UK might count as a negative)

Lying is worse. They already know that you planned to visit your aunt.

Is there any other way apart from reapplying/Judicial review to fix this issue?

Unlikely. How important this trip was for you? If it's not critical - just try again next time you have time to travel.

  • I don't have any particular itinerary right now so I can follow your advice and travel to Australia first. Thanks!
