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) V4.2 because:
You have applied for entry clearance to the UK for 6 months. The information you have provided on your application form and the supporting documents you submit allows me to assess whether your circumstances and intentions are, on the balance of probabilities, as stated.
On your Visa Application Form (VAF) you have stated that you are employed as manager for *****. As evidence of this you have submitted a letter. You are proposing to travel to the UK for 6 months to engage in preaching to a congregation of International Society for Krishna Consciousness. I acknowledge the letter from your UK sponsor. It is not clear why you are proposing to leave your employment and stay in the UK for so long. Nor is it clear whether you will have employment to return to in Russia. I do not find it credible that you would leave your job for so long. You have not provided any other evidence of your circumstances in Russia. Taking all the evidence into consideration I am not satisfied that your current circumstances are such that you are genuinely seeking entry for a purpose that is permitted by the visitor routes (Appendix 4.2 (c)). Nor have you have shown that your circumstances are such that you will leave the UK at the end of your visit (Appendix V 4.2 (a)).
I have therefore refused your application because I am not satisfied, on the balance of probabilities, that you meet all of the requirements of the relevant Appendix of the United Kingdom Immigration Rules.
You have applied for entry clearance as a visitor to the United Kingdom for 3 days. I have considered your application against paragraph 46G of the Immigration Rules.
Home Office records show that you have previously been refused a United Kingdom visa (shefo/*****). However each application has to be assessed on its own merits using the information and evidence submitted. It is worth noting, that I am not satisfied you have addressed the concerns raised by the previous Entry Clearance Officer.
You have stated on your application that you are single and are a non working student at ***** University. I note that you have stated you do not receive an income; however you state that you spend £160 per month on living expenses; it is unclear how you are able to meet this expense. You have provided a bank statement with a closing balance of only 10260 Rub (£102).
Whilst, you state the cost of the visit to you will be zero; the onus is on you to qualify for entry clearance based on your own circumstances and your own intentions. You have said that Facebook will be paying for all the expenses of your trip to the United Kingdom and I am satisfied that they are in a position to do so. However, whilst I take this into account in assessing your proposed maintenance and accommodation in the UK, that is only one aspect of the visitor rules and this sponsorship does not satisfy me of your own intention to leave the UK on completion of your visit.
In light of the above I am not satisfied that you are genuinely seeking entry as a Business visitor or intend to leave the United Kingdom at the end of your visit. 46G (i)(ii). In light of this I am not satisfied that you intend to undertake one of the defined business activities. 46G(iii)
I have therefore refused your application because I am not satisfied, on the balance of probabilities, that you meet all of the requirements of the relevant Paragraph of the United Kingdom Immigration Rules.
