The UK is one of the hubs for migration in today’s world. Travelling to the UK on work, business or a holiday requires all non-British individuals to apply for a UK visa. On applying for a visa, a UK visa rejection is the primary concern for any applicant and we understand how disappointing it can be. Hence, here's a list of reasonsleading to a visa rejection to be extra careful about while applying.
The most common reasons that would result in UK visa Rejection are mentioned below:
After completing the online portion of your UK visa application, you will book and attend your in-person Biometrics appointment (the details of this appointment will vary with the country you apply from). The most important preparation point for this appointment is to ensure that you have all the necessary supporting documentation with you. All documents must be original– and it’s betterto include a photocopy as well (but never a photocopy in place of an original).Failure to supply all the necessary documentation will result into a UK visa rejection.
The Purpose or Intentions to travel to the UK are not clear
One of the main reasons that lead the consular office to deny your UK Visa is failing to have the justification needed for your purpose and conditions of the planned travel and stay. Hence, one should be particularly clear about the type of Visa they want to apply for.
- Failing to present an employment and professional qualification that matches the presented financial situation
- Incapacity to provide documents that support the purpose of travel and stay in the UK
Leaving blanks on your forms
Many times, applicants leave a blank space when they don't undertsand the questions, or they don't feel that the information asked is valid enough. In such cases, it's advisable to consult someone who has a better knowlede about the Visa process. An applicant should never, in any case, leave blank spaces in the Visa form as it leads to Visa rejection.
Applying for the wrong type of visa
Your paperwork mustmatch the major purpose of visit. For example, you cannot choose the tourist purpose of the visit while your paperwork indicates business purposes or vice versa. This is one of the major reasons as to why many applications get rejected.
Failure to meet financial requirements
When deciding an application, the High Commission will require evidence to show that the applicant has “sufficient funds to cover all reasonable costs in relation to their visit”. You’ll be surprised how often folks make this mistake. Sufficient funds is not just about your bank balance, it is equally about affordability too
Violated visa conditions on previous visit
This includes minor or major breaches of immigration law, such as overstaying your visa or working when your visa did not permit you to. If an individual has not been compliant with immigration requirements, the UK High Commission will normally refuse that person’s application.”
Visa Denials Based on Criminal Record
If an applicant is found with any past or current criminal record, such applicant is most likely to be rejected a visa by the UK High Commission.
