Письма об отказах (виза в Великобританию)
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.
I have used all the information presented 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 are single with no dependants you work at ***** as an Information Manager earning USD1000 (£667) (£1=US$) of which you spend between US$500 and $750 (£333 - £500) per month on living expenses. You state that you do not receive an income from any other source and that you have no property. You have submitted two bank statements in your name with closing balances on euro0.04 and R5,995 (£130). I recognise that your sponsor proposes to bear the cost of your visit. I must take into account your personal and economic circumstances in Russia when coming to my decision. In view of this and the above I am not satisfied that you have sufficient ties to satisfy me that would in fact leave the UK on completion of your proposed visit. Therefore, on the balance of probabilities, I am not satisfied that you are genuinely seeking entry as a visitor for a limited period not exceeding 6 months or that you intend to leave the United Kingdom at the end of the visit as required by paragraph 41 (i) and (ii) of HC395
You have provided an invitation letter from your UK sponsor dated 28 January 2013 offering you accommodation. You have not provided evidence of his employment or accommodation, for example in the form of tenancy agreement, or mortgage or housing tax, and as such his ability to accommodate you as claimed. You have submitted your sponsor’s bank statement dated 12 February 2013 that shows him to be mostly overdrawn on his account, although I note a large deposit placed in the account on 11 February 2013 you have not provided evidence of their origin. This leads me to doubt that the funds are genuinely and exclusively available to him for your exclusive use Therefore, on the balance of probabilities, i am not satisfied that you will be maintained and accommodated in the UK without working or having recourse to public funds or are able to meet the cost of return or an onward journey as required by paragraph 41 (vi) and (vii) of HC395.
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.
