I applied for a UK business visitor visa for two weeks and my application was refused having attached the following:
- My Bank statement
- Income tax returns.
Other than this, my company CEO provided the following documents, attached with application:
CEO's letter inviting me for a business visit in UK (they forgot to mention I'm an employee of this company, although they wrote they would providing accommodation and flight charges).
Other than this I attached copy of his passport and bank statement.
According to refusal notice they said "CEO had nowhere mentioned that you are their employee while you've said that in your application".
"I am not sure you meet the requirement of Appendix V, Immigration rules for visitors"
you have sought the entry clearance to visit the UK for two weeks. Your stated purpose is meeting and collaboration with with CEO, the CEO of the company called COMPANY. CEO has provided a letter of support for your application, which states that you have a work related meeting with him. I note whereas you state you are employed by “COMPANY”, CEO makes no mention of this in his letter, stating only he is a CEO of a company called COMPANY. You have not provided any evidence that you are employed by this company in India or else where.
"Therefore I am not satisfied as to your motives to seeking entry in UK at this time. I am not therefore satisfied that you intend to leave united kingdom at the end of your visit. I'm also not satisfied that you are genuinely seeking entry for a purpose permitted by visitor routes and you will not undertake any of the prohibited activities under V4.5 - V4.10. V4.2 (a) (c) and (d)"
Future Applications -
Any Future UK visa applications you make will be considered on their individual merits, but they may be refused unless:
Your personal circumstances change significantly between now and your next application.
Your provide compelling new evidence with your application.
I'm not sure what to do now, I would need to apply again and pay visa fee again?
They have also written there is no right of appeal, nor of administrative review.
