Письма об отказах (виза в Великобританию)
I have refused your application for a visit visa because I am not satisfied that you meet the requirements of paragraph(s) 4.2 and 4.3 of Appendix V: Immigration Rules for Visitors because:
You state that you intend to visit the UK for 6 days to attend the concert of Stas Mikhailov at Troxy Concert Hall. You state that the organisers of this event will meet the costs relating to your visit. Whilst I acknowledge that you have submitted a letter from EU Events dated 04/10/16 confirming this, it is unclear from the documents that you have submitted and from the information on the visa application form why they would do so. I am therefore not satisfied that your intentions are as you state.
You state that are retired and have declared no income. You have stated you have a monthly expenditure of £100 per month. Whilst you have submitted evidence that you receive a monthly pension of 3,801 Roubles per month (£49), I note that this is half of what you have declared your living costs are. The documents you have submitted do not demonstrate how you financially support yourself in Russia as declared by you on the visa application form and as a result I am not satisfied that your financial circumstances are as you state.
I am therefore not satisfied that your intentions are as stated and that you are a genuine visitor or that you will leave the UK at the end of your visit. I am also not satisfied that you have sufficient funds to cover the costs related to your visit including your return or onward journey. 4.2(a)(c)(e) I am also not satisfied that your sponsor has a genuine professional or personal relationship with you. 4.3(a).
You have applied for entry clearance in order to enter the United Kingdom for the purpose of tourism. I note that you have submitted evidence of your income in the form of a letter of employment which states that you earn RUR 60,000 (£1300) a month. On your application form you have stated that your trip to the UK will cost you UK £2000 and that you will pay for your trip yourself. However, you have provided no evidence as to what funds are available to you for this. This in itself is not satisfactory evidence that funds can be made available from your resources to pay for your trip. As a consequence I am unable to assess your circumstances in Russia which impact upon your incentive and intention to leave the United Kingdom at the end of your proposed visit. Nor can I be satisfied, from the evidence provided that there would be sufficient funds available to maintain and accommodate you in the United Kingdom without you working or without recourse to public funds.
Given all the above I am not satisfied as to your intentions for visiting the UK or that you will leave at the end of the period specified by you as required under paragraph 41 (i) and (ii) of the Immigration Rules or that that you will be able to maintain and accommodate yourself in the UK without recourse to public funds or taking employment, or that you can meet the cost of your onward journey or return journey from the UK as required by paragraphs 41 (vi) and (vii) of the United Kingdom Immigration Rules.
I have refused your application for a visit visa because I am not satisfied that you meet the requirements of paragraph(s) 4.2 (a) and (e) of Appendix V: Immigration Rules for Visitors because:
In your Visa Application Form, you state that you intend to visit the United Kingdom for 3 days for the purpose of tourism. You state that you will travel alone and that you have no friends or family in the United Kingdom. You state that you will finance your trip from your own funds and that you have £448 (32,235 RUB) available for your trip. You expect that your trip will cost £448.
I note that you were previously refused a United Kingdom visa (Moscow/*****). The Entry Clearance Officer was not satisfied as to your intentions in travelling to the United Kingdom. He was also not satisfied as to the funds available to you for your visit. Your present application has been assessed on its own merits but I am entitled to consider your immigration history. I submit that your present application is broadly similar to your previous one.
In your Visa Application Form, you state that you are an investor and scientists relations manager. Your employers, ***** LLC, have submitted an employment letter, showing your average monthly salary as 42,000 Roubles (£584). You have also submitted 2 bank statements from Raiffeisen Bank, showing that you have accounts holding 2220 Euros (£1943) and 21,256 Roubles (£295). As with your previous application, the sources of your funds is not clear and I am not satisfied that these bank statements are a true demonstration of your financial position. I also submit that your proposal, to spend 3 week’s salary on a 3 day holiday, is not commensurate with your demonstrated income. In light of the foregoing, I am not satisfied as to your intentions in wishing to travel to the UK, nor am I satisfied that you genuinely intend a short visit only to the UK and that you will leave the UK at the end of the visit. In addition to this, I am not satisfied that you have sufficient funds to cover all reasonable costs in relation to your proposed visit without working or accessing public funds. Consequently, I refuse your application under Paragraphs 4.2 (a) and (e) of Appendix V of the Immigration Rules.
