Hello All,


My father's family visitor visa was refused on 01-Nov.


Basically my father was in UK in May-27 and therefore his second visa starting from 01-Nov was refused because it is less than six months since his last departure from UK. I did not know about this rule. The visa officer further feels that he is trying to make UK a habitual abode.


He is eligible to come to UK after 29-Nov as he will have completed six months out of UK.


Now my concern is that the visa officer may refuse again thinking that my father is desperate to go to UK and therefore applied as soon as he became eligible and thus refuse again saying that he is trying to make UK is habitual abode. In this regard, I intend to mention the following as reason why he will return to India and not stay in UK.


He is coming here to meet with my family ( myself, my wife and my one year old son ). Last time, he returned back within four months even though he had six months visa. Also even though I have lived in UK for a good six and half years now, he has applied only for second visit.


Besides this, my father has wife ( my mother & married for over last forty years), a son, a daughter and two grand-children as a family in India.


He has substantial fixed deposits in India, besides the monthly regular pension.


My questions are:


(1)Does the above form a strong reason to return back to India.

(2)If the visa is refused again, will I be able to raise complaint and seek ombudsman help if needed.


Thanks for your responses.

I think he would need to enquire with the British embassy in India. If it is just that he can't have two visas during a 6 month period, then he applies after the 6 months is up. I can't see it being refused again, but they might ask questions before deciding whether to grant one. There will be a marker against his passport that a Visa was turned down, so each time he applies he will be asked for more details.


What they are worried about is the reason for visiting may not be just to see family in the UK.

We could do with some help from you.
