I had applied twice for a UK visit visa in January for the purpose of sitting the PLAB 2 medical exam , but my applications were refused , though my cousin who is a consultant doctor in UK-NHS sponsored me for the visit.
The first refusal was because I didn't provide a bank statement, and the hotels that I booked were found to be cancelled ( I cancelled the bookings because my cousin advised to do so as he was more aware of better hotels ).
In the second application , I provided my bank statement. But however the application was refused again on the grounds that the statement contained only two transactions and didn't reflect my income and savings.
I am a doctor and live in Iraq . I receive my salary in cash like most governmental employees here. I have tried to make an active bank statement in the last 5 months with numerous cash transactions so that they can mimics my savings and expenditure.
I am looking forward to hearing assistance regarding this soon , it's really frustrating.
