My UK visa application was refused and I 10 years of deception. there is no right to appeal or administrative review.

Basis of misrepresentation that I overstayed in the UK in 2015, but in actuality I never made misrepresentation and I have never been to the UK in my entire lifetime

Seems like my name is matching with some other person from his database, Please tell me what I can do?

    Were you refused on 320(7a) or 320(7b)? Jul 11, 2023 at 5:47

    @L.Dutch This is way more serious than v4.2 (a,b,c) and the answer is different Jul 11, 2023 at 5:51

    I imagine such a refusal would need a match on biometrics, not just the name. Posting the full refusal reason might help shed some light.

It will depend on what grounds you were refused


320(7a) is the most favorable possibility for you, since you aren't actually banned yet and can reapply even though an extreme level of scrutiny will be applied to any further application

You should note that because this application for entry clearance has been refused under paragraph 320 (7A) of the Immigration Rules, any future applications may also be refused under paragraph 320 (7B) of the Immigration Rules General grounds for refusal

You can reapply BUT :

For this, you are extremely encouraged to get the services of a legit (there are many agents that are far from legit) immigration law solicitor for advice as a single mistake on any application will likely trigger a 320(7b) refusal which entails the actual ban.

Immigration adviser is a regulated profession in the UK, and all non-legal professionals (sollicitors and barristers are regulated in other ways and aren't in the OISC registry) are to be registered under the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner. You can check if a company is legally regulated by asking them their 10-digit OISC number and typing it on the OISC site.


If you are refused under 320(7b) now, you're very out of luck as you're already banned, and automatic refusal is warranted on your case for 10 years.

In this case, judicial review is the only way you can try through a solicitor (or just wait)

    get the services of a legit (there are many agents that are far from legit) immigration law solicitor cannot emphasise this enough, outside the UK there are many 'visa agents' who as far as I can tell either do very little or actively encourage their clients to lie or create fake documents. Do not trust anyone to help you with your UK visa, particularly in such a delicate situation, who is not working for an accredited UK based company.

    @MJeffryes how can one tell if a UK-based company is accredited? Jul 11, 2023 at 13:52

    @justhalf More than unlikely in my opinion, if not lost. Matchups can happen but biometrics (fingerprints+photos) have been a part of a UKV, since at least 2005 and were surely compulsory by 2010+, so a name-only match is very unlikely and biometrics likely matched up for this conclusion to be drawn. It is not out of the equation that OP tried to cover its own overstay and failed Jul 12, 2023 at 6:38
