Getting away from a UK Visit Visa refusal has always been cumbersome due to the Entry Clearance Officer refusing almost a majority of the Visit Visa applicants for the most trivial reasons. Last year about 260,000 visit visas were refused.

The UK Government has set a thorough set of guidelines to facilitate the entry of applicants who wish to visit the UK in a short term basis under visit visa such as:

  • Sufficient evidence that the applicant will return back to his home country
  • Sufficient bank balance so that he can facilitate his return back to his home country
  • Any other evidence that the Home Office might seem to question about.

The scope of evidence is quite ambiguous when it comes to applying for a UK Visit visa. The applicant under the guise of being ill-informed with regards to the proper evidence that has to be provided in front of the Home Office is most likely to be refused as the Home Office themselves are already burdened with the tiresome amount of application.

Lack of chronologically placed documentation, as well as proper documents to be submitted, may be another reason as to why any applicants would be refused to enter the UK.

Sometimes the applicant not being aware of the various visa options may avail for a visa option which might not fall under the purview of his requirements. For example, people applying for Tier-1 application instead of Standard Visit Visa for business activities may be rejected upfront if he falls short of the requirement under the Tier-1 visa, as it is more stringent than the Visit Visa.

Another reason of rejection is non-disclosure of any previous issues such as refusal from another country or concealment of any criminal record which would affect the interest of the Home Office. If such misleading or non-disclosed statements come to the limelight of the Home Office, he might even attract a ban from the UK for certain period of years.
