I reapplied for a Standard Visitor visa to UK and the second attempt was refused, too. I don't object to a refusal but it should be consistent and correlated with the first refusal. The first application was refused because I am in my final year of study in a country other than my own home country, with a scholarship, and the ECO wanted me to further prove my circumstances in my country of study. This refusal was fine by me because being a student in a foreign country wasn't enough that I would come back to defend my thesis for my masters degree after my intended visit. I provided evidence of property back home a job, study leave letter, after study service bond, payslips, bank statements among others.
Please look at the inconsistencies in the second letter and advise me accordingly.
I didn't ask for a four day entry clearance as stated in the second refusal.
I didn't say in the application I was going for research or study but rather a visit to see my fiancée's parents but whilst in UK, I would be writing my thesis, as the ECO states in the first refusal reason.
Were the first paragraph and the second paragraph of the second refusal written by the same ECO?
Look at the black circled lines to see the ECO's gaping flaw. He or she refuses a visa based on finances (how can I spend amount x on a four month trip) yet ECO writes I asked for four days?
- Can a face-to-face interview do any good?
I don't think I trust the system any more because where I applied from I just submitted papers and waited for a decision.
- Was there really a reason for a refusal that weighed enough?
