Here’s a summary of my immigration history:
I applied for my brother’s wedding in 2019 which was to be held in the UK. I applied for a visit visa and got the notice posted. My other family members reapplied and got their visas. I lost interest in going altogether so I didn’t
Apparently, my mother (who didn’t remember she did) applied for a students visa on my behalf when I was a minor. I didn’t know the details of the applications/refusals, I didn’t have records of it and I went ahead and stated I have never been refused visa before.
I want to reapply for my student visa(MSC, I lived in another country for almost 10years) in 2023, I am not sure if I have already been banned because it makes no statement as to the ban already counting from this application, school fees has been paid in full, I have my POF and a cover letter explaining I was a minor, so I couldn’t have known, I am older, married and not going to be a nuisance.
REASONS FOR REFUSAL
You have applied for a visa to visit the UK.
In deciding whether you meet the requirements of Appendix V: Immigration Rules for visitors (https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-rules), I have considered:
- Your application document
- 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) V3.6 of Appendix V: Immigration Rules for Visitors because:
• Under paragraph V3.6 of the Immigration Rules, a person must automatically be refused entry clearance if false representations or documents are used (whether or not material to the application and whether or not to the applicant's knowledge), or material facts are not disclosed in relation to the application. A false representation for these purposes is a lie, or a false statement in a visa application, made either orally or in writing. A false document includes:
- A genuine document which has been altered or tampered with;
- A counterfeit document (one that is completely false);
- A genuine document which is being used by an impostor;
- A genuine document which has been fraudulently obtained or issued;
- A genuine document which contains a falsified or counterfeit visa endorsement.
The Immigration Office
You stated in your application that you have never been refused a visa for any country including the UK. However, checks have confirmed that you were refused three previous times on 27/08/2009 re: DUBAI/621417, on 22/09/2009 re: passports ABDB/322524, and on 03/11/2009 re: ABDB/329335. I am satisfied that you have made false representations and submitted a false document in support of your application. Your application is therefore refused under V3.6 of the Immigration Rules after referral to an Entry Clearance Manager.
Any future UK visa applications you make will be considered on their individual merits; however, you are likely to be refused unless the circumstances of your application change.
In relation to this decision, there is no right of appeal or right to administrative review.
You should note that because this application for entry clearance has been refused under paragraph V3.6 of the Immigration Rules, any future applications may also be refused for the same reason, under paragraph 320 (7B) of the Immigration Rules or paragraph V3.7 of Appendix V of the Immigration Rules.
A refusal under paragraph V3.7 of the Immigration Rules may attract an automatic refusal period of up to 10 years. The period starts from the date of the previous event in which the deception or submission of falsified documents or information was employed.
Should I do it? Was I banned for 10years? I don’t know what false document they referred to, did they mean the application itself was false? Everyone around me isn’t clear on what is going on. Should I wait till 2029
