A visa refusal is the rejection of the application for a non-immigrant visa by the United Kingdom immigration authorities.
Many of us may have at some point of time faced the emotional trauma of having our application for the visa rejected. Opening the envelope to see the reply of the Home Office, responsible for immigration services, and realizing that you are not given the visa may feel confusing and frustrating.
The most commonly denied United Kingdom Visa is the visitor visa issued to those wishing to travel to the UK for a short period of time, after the changes in the immigration rule since 2012 came into force which is much stricter and tougher.
The authorities refuse to hand out a visa for a variety of reasons but the most common factors are that the correct documents are not supplied, the documents are not presented in the correct format, specified evidence is missing, following advice from family or friends rather than a qualified advisor, non-disclosure of the previous immigration issues, applying for the wrong type of visa, insufficient funds for a trip to the UK, the applicant does not have a valid passport or travel document, withholding documentation on criminal record if any and the likes.
The Home Office has no problem handing out the rejections because it forfeits the fee whether the application is accepted or not and so it makes money from appeals and further applications.
The applicants can never be 100% guaranteed that their request will be accepted because the final decision is of the Home Office but to ensure that their application is not rejected, they can definitely make sure that their application is as strong as it can be by taking the advice of qualified advisors.
The UK immigration authorities will specify in writing notifying the applicants on why their application got rejected and will also specify about whether the applicant can appeal the decision, if not, they would have to file a fresh application.
The applicant has the right to appeal which is granted under section 82 of the Nationality, Immigration, and Asylum act 2002 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2002/41/section/82) and depending on the type of visa applied for, the appeal process differs but in the situation that you are not given a visitor visa, you cannot appeal unless you have made an application as a family visitor and in other cases you would have to re-apply. So, the solution here is either that you appeal or re-apply.
Thus, the refusal of the United Kingdom Visa application can be harrowing and may seem personal and judgmental, but you can avoid such a situation by having a strong application and overcome it by appealing the decision. The last step may be to re-apply for a fresh application and it is always better to take the advice of qualified advisors beforehand.
