It could well be correct action to have declined the original application; the border officer will have in mind a possibly unwell elderly relative and the potential cost on the NHS. The fee here is a processing fee and missing information which turned out to be required causes the application to fail. Similar to if you make an application for a new passport and don't send good enough photographs in: you're not always given a second chance and have to reapply, paying the fee a second time.
thanks for that. it is almost £400.00 a pop though! A possibly unwell elderly person is not actually anything to do with the reason for refusal though, as far as I see it? the legislation suggest that if a visa applicant has only recently come in possession of sufficient funds for the trip then it should be looked at further, not if it is the sponsors money. legislation suggests a person can be fully sponsored, but the refusal suggests ' the application is all down to you, you are broke busted and disgusted' you might come here run away and sell rice on street corners'. its totally prejudice if a person can be fully sponsored.
there is a first tribunal appeal if human rights are brought into it, and apparently by any family effected by the decision. Ive been up puking half the night first time since I can remember. Only last week this family member had to risk travelling while there was a typhoon and schools were closed, because the uk visa site went wrong, but if he missed appointment that would have been end of application. anyway of to get some rennie! if they still make it.
