Under paragraph 320 (7A) of the Immigration Rules a person must automatically be refused entry clearance if false representations or documents are used (whether or not material to the application and whether or not to the applicant’s knowledge) or material facts are not disclosed in relation to the application. A false representation for these purposes is a lie, or a false statement in a visa application, made either orally or in writing. A false document includes:
You state that you wish to visit the UK for 8 days for tourism and travel and that you do not have any friends or family in the UK (questions 81 and 82 of your application). One of the documents submitted in support of your application is a letter from ***** ***** at MPH ***** Ltd, inviting you to visit on a business trip at their premises in Stapleton, Leicestershire. This letter states that the general purpose of your trip is to visit factories and negotiations on cooperation. However, from the documents you have submitted, your hotel booking is for a hotel in London for the duration of your trip. During a telephone call with Mr *****, he confirmed that he is known to you personally and that the purpose of your trip is not for business, and that he would be meeting you.
Submission of false documents seriously undermines your credibility. Therefore it was difficult for me to accept the truth of any uncorroborated statements made by you including those relating to the purpose and duration of your proposed stay in the United Kingdom. This leads me to doubt your intentions in the United Kingdom and I am not satisfied that you are a genuine visitor who intends to leave the United Kingdom at the end of your visit. Paragraph 320(7A) and 41(i)(ii).
You should note that because this application for entry clearance has been refused under paragraph 320 (7A) of the Immigration Rules, any future applications may also be refused under paragraph 320 (7B) of the Immigration Rules, (subject to the requirements set out in paragraph A320).
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. Your right of appeal is limited to the grounds referred to in section 84(1)(c) of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002.
