If you are just starting to prepare for applying for visa to the UK, we have prepared a whole list of frequently encountered arguments in the refusals of applicants.
The most common reason for refusing a UK visa for Ukrainian is:
- not providing a "full" package of documents to demonstrate ties to Ukraine.
- unproven income of Ukrainian applicant
- low income
- lack of translations of documents from Ukrainian to English
- wrong type of visa or incorrectly filing the application
The requirements of the British consulate in relation to the Ukrainians have tightened. Applying for visa by yourself - ignorance of all the "pitfalls" and ignorance of all visa requirements for citizens of Ukraine in self-preparation for applying for a visa to the UK, often leads to the refusal of an English visa.
Most typical reasons for the refusul of a British visa to Ukrainians:
1. Providing an incomplete package of documents
Most Ukrainians try to get a visa to England by themselves, submiting to the UK Visa Application Center documents according to a list which found in the Internet. Ukrainians believe that if they submitted correctly all the documents, online form, photographs, and if they have an invitation from England, have their own business, family, property, then they will be given a visa automatically. No, it is not true. Everyone has an individual situation and it is impossible to submit a package of documents according to standard norms, which are suitable for everyone.
2. Lack of certified translations of Ukrainian documents to English
Lack of certified translations of the documents that you submit is another frequent reasons for visa refusal. Some applicants still make this mistake and submit documents without translation. All visa documents must be translated into English. The translation must be certified by certificational professional translator and / or translation agency. It is impossible to underestimate this process as the translation of official documents for submission, because this is an important component in applying for a visa to the UK and it will be very disappointing to get a refusal because of one certificate. This will not be written in the letter of refusal, but, for example, if you have not translated your a bank statement it can lead to a refusal. Why? - Because the visa officer will not see whether you are receiving a salary on the card and, accordingly, will write in the refusal "I'm not sure about the sources of your income." Or even worse say "I don’t believe in your ties to Ukraine and that you will return to Ukraine after staying in UK".
3. Incorrectly filled online form or some facts are hidden intentionally
For applying for UK visa it is need to correctly fill out the application online form. You cannot make mistakes with an important procedure, because all the information that you provide will checked. The online form is filled out in English, so it is also important to avoid grammatical and semantic mistakes.
4. Selected the wrong purpose of trip and/or type of visa
The purpose of the trip is of paramount importance in the process of collecting and submitting documents. Purpose of trip must be confirmed by real facts and documents. You must also choose the right type of visa according to the purpose of your trip. Entrust to professionals who have been working in this for many years.
5. The terms of valid of the visa to England and the travel dates stated in the application online form
A visa to the UK will typically be opened for 6 months. Even if you plan a trip to the UK just for a week, you will get a visa for 6 months. However, if you write disparate periods of your stay, then it can be a refusal.
As for the length of stay: how long can I stay in England on a tourist / guest / business visa? This information in official sources is disclosed so everyone thinks that he can stay there as long as he want. As a result, they are located on the territory of England for a rather long time. This is not punishable. However, upon subsequent applying for a visa - they are get refused, which says something like the following, only in English, "I see that you have provided all the documents, but during the validity of the previous visa you have been in the UK for XX days and I'm not sure what You doing there all this time, so your visa has been refused. "
6. Unstable financial situation
British Consulate workers are interested not only in the size of the applicant’s regular income, but also in the regularity, availability of funds for organizing a trip, and most importantly, the percentage of all these components. Low wages, short work experience, savings are incompatible with income, a small amount in a bank account - can serve as a reason for the refusal of a visa to England.
7. It is not enough funds in the bank account for your trip
How much should be in the personal bank account when applying for a UK visa?
- This question, the answer to which many consider the magic question, actually it has varying levels of significance. Speaking very generally, this is an amount not less than £1000 per person. But depending on the average monthly income and the documents provided, the visa officer may decide that it is either too large or too small and write in refusal later "I do not understand the origin of the funds" or "I am not sure that these funds belong to you because I do not understand the source of their income " Therefore, we determine the necessary amount on the account for each client individually, when we see the whole package of documents, income level, cost of housing, level of average monthly expenses of the applicant.
8. Falsification of the documents
Forged certificates, and in particular bank statements, which can be easily checked online, are often the reason for refusal. We always recommend that you have a real bank account with a real balance and cash flow through it. Better small amounts on a real account than big on a falsified one.
These are the most common reasons for refusing a UK visa. Also, individually, there may be other factors that may lead to refusal. Figure out how to prevent it may be only by detail analyzing in the entire package of documents before filing online form and taking appropriate measures to be safe. If you have doubts, it is better to get consultation at Visa Agency, where they are experienced managers in such cases and will help you choose the best solution.
