You have applied to enter the UK for 4 weeks. You have stated that you are a Project Manager at ***** and have provided an employment letter as evidence that you work for ***** and that you are being dispatched to the UK in order to participate in on-site knowledge transfer and planning meetings with ***** business analysts. I further note that your employer states that you will not engage in project management duties and that the need for such short-term visits is on-going starting in June 2016.I acknowledge that you have also provided an invitation letter from *****, who state they have a business contract with *****, to this effect.
I understand that you have previously been issued a UK six month business visitor visa on 07/11/2013 and on that application you stated that you intended to conduct a two week business trip to meet with *****. The information that you have provided on your visa application and the stamps in your passport indicate that you made three business trips to the UK resulting in a total stay of just over four months. I note that the first trip you made to the UK was on 17/11/2013 and that you stayed for just over one month. This was then followed by a further two month trip from 05/01/2014. This was then followed by a further one month visit from 08/04/14. Whilst I am aware two years have passed since this time, the business trip that you propose making is similar to that stated in your previous application. I acknowledge that you have provided a letter from *****. However looking at the time that you spent in the UK on the last visa and given that you have presented similar circumstances today, I am not satisfied that you intend a short trip of four weeks as stated by you and that your intention is to attend business meetings.
In view of these concerns, I am not satisfied with your reasons for wishing to visit the UK now or that your presence in the UK will not lead to you carrying out activities purporting to work, which is not permitted by Appendix V of the Immigration rules. Equally, I am also not satisfied that you will leave at the end of the period as stated by you. As a result I am not satisfied that you are seeking entry as a genuine visitor to undertake a business activity listed in Appendix 3, (sub sections 5 and 6) of the Immigration Rules for visitors. Your application has therefore been refused under Paragraph V4.2 (c).
