Myself and my husband had applied together on UK visit visa from India, where I applied for Tourist visa and husband on Business visa. Both our requests were refused based on some misunderstanding.
Fact 1. Both our applications stated that I will be travelling to UK for 2 weeks as tourists, while my husband will travel to USA via UK and he will return to UK at the end of second week for a business meet for 5 days.
Fact 2: My US visa was rejected earlier in November 2014 since I couldn't prove enough ties to return to India, and I have stated this in my UK application. My husband doesn't have a US visa yet, and he has applied for it where the interview schedule is next week.
We find this quite embarrassing since my husband doesn't have a US visa or had never applied/rejected before. This was taken as an assumption by the visa officer and used for UK visa rejection. The second misunderstanding was that husband is going to stay in UK first and then go to US. This of course possibly from the statement we used as 'via UK'.
My queries are : 1. What could have possibly gone wrong here?
For visitor visa can one appeal? If so we stand a chance to win?
What are the other options?
If we reapply , only our travel dates would change and husband possibly has a US visa in hand. Will earlier UK visa rejection be a problem?
