Письма об отказах (виза в Великобританию)
I have used all that information to determine if the Immigration Rules have been met. In reaching my decision, which has been made on the balance of probabilities, I note the following points:
You have indicated that you intend to travel to the UK for a period of 30 days for a feature film production. Whilst I am satisfied, from your sponsor documents, that your sponsor would be able to support you during your visit, I must be satisfied of your personal circumstances and the intention surrounding your trip. You have stated on your application form that you earn a monthly income of 100,000 RUB (£1,988); however you have not provided evidence of these earnings. I note that you have provided a bank statement with a closing balance of £20,505 and a letter from your employer ZAO *****, but neither of these documents demonstrates what your earnings are each month. Furthermore you have not satisfactorily explained the origin of these funds and therefore I cannot be satisfied that the statement is an accurate reflection of your financial circumstances. You have stated on your application form that your living costs are 50,000 RUB (£994), but it is unclear from your bank statement that this is a true reflection of your outgoings.
Furthermore I note that you were refused an application for settlement as the spouse of a British citizen in 2012 and this leads me to doubt your intentions in the UK. I am unclear of your current domestic and family circumstances, and given all of this I am not satisfied as to your intentions in wishing to travel to the United Kingdom now. In addition I am not satisfied that you intend to leave the United Kingdom at the end of your visit, or that you can be adequately maintained and accommodated in the United Kingdom or meet the cost of your return or onward journey. 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.
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.
