I applied for a UK Standard Visitor visa early for my seven day trip from April 26th to May 3rd 2017. I applied four months in advance (on 23rd of December 2016) and received the result after four working days. It was a refusal due to: (picture attached)
My concern is that I did submit evidence about my educational status (Student verification from university, Absent leave letter from university - both are verified and translated into English) - but in the pack of documents they sent me back with my passport, I COULD NOT FIND THEM. I suspect there might be some mistake or maybe they took them out on purpose, but am for sure they were in my application when I submitted it at the visa centre.
FYI, my status is:
- I am a student (sophomore - in my second year at university).
- have not much income.
- my sponsor is my uncle who is so close to me because we were living together for nearly 15 years. My uncle owns a company on his own and gave me 9000$ for the trip. (However, there is no evidence of his income nor letter from him in my application).
- I provided my mom's incomes as well (1100$/month).
Can anyone give me advice: Should I apply or what kind of document should I provide them to make myself become more convincing?
Because I can't file an appeal there is almost no way for me to find out what happened with the papers from my university :(
I am going to send a complaint to VFS centre took over my application via their website because it seems to be the only way to do it. Any advice on the complaint?
