I applied for a standard visitor visa to the UK for seven days. I earn £278/month and have been working at the same organization for more than a year. I have saved up enough funds for the trip and I attached bank statements to prove it. The ECO refused my visa stating:
I note that you stated that your trip to the UK will cost you £1100, this is approximately 4 times your monthly income. I do not find it credible that you spend this amount on a trip.
I am a single woman, with no financial responsibilities and I saved up for this trip because I really wanted to visit the UK.
How do I prove to the ECO and the authorities that spending £1,100 for my trip wouldn't have caused me any financial harm neither would I have had to access UK government funds?
Another concern of mine is that if I reapply without the partial funding of my father or get sponsored by a different person, does the amount given by my father previously cause hindrance in my visa application?
Won't they still reject it on the basis of my pay being too insignificant?
