I had recently applied for UK visitor visa with all the supporting documents but my visa was refused on the grounds that I have not submitted the confirmation paper of online booking I made for the hotel. They require to see the confirmation of booking I made at the hotel even though I submitted my hotel booking which I saved from booking.com.
Besides which they refused me on the ground that if I am working in an organization why does my ID mention my fathers name as my sponsor instead of my company and why I have not regularized my stay in the country where I am a foreign resident.
Here's refusal letter .
I have refused your application for a visit visa because I am not satisfied that you meet requirements v4.2 appendix v because you have submitted a hotel booking from booking.com to confirm your intended stay at -- hotel however this booking does not contain details of online confirmation and therefore I can not be satisfied that you intend to stay where you have proposed.
You have submitted an employment letter from -- to confirm your employment in ksa. However I not that you reside in ksa under the sponsorship of your father it is not clear from your application why you have regularized your stay in ksa
And as such I cannot be satisfied that your circumstances are as claimed or that you are traveling for period and purpose as stated . Any future application you make will be considered on their individual merits however you are likely to be refused unless you provide compelling new evidence with your next application . In relation to this decision there is no right of appeal or right to administrative review.
I am currently working as doctor in KSA as per rules in KSA my residence permit should be under my employee name and since I have been living with my family as I was born in KSA so my current residence permit is under my father name. As such I wonder why should that be an issue for a UK visitor visa. Could you please also shed some light on what they mean by online confirmation of booking as I submitted the print out of booking.com page.
I am planning to reapply but I can't understand how I can sort these issues.
Is it possible for me to request for a different entry clearance officer to review my application the next time I apply for a visa? Will it anyway have an adverse effect on the outcome of my application ?
