Visitor Visa Refused, Pre-Action Protocol Letter Submitted Leads to the Grant of Visa

On March 08, 2018 | In Pre-Action Protocol | By A Y & J Solicitors

Mr M, along with his wife and his son applied from India for visitor visas to visit the UK, his brother and family who are all settled here. The family of three also wanted to take this opportunity to explore the places of attraction in the UK and experience the culture of the country where his brother and family have put down roots.

Family Wishing to Visit UK Relatives Refused Visitor Visas

Unfortunately, their applications were refused as the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) was not satisfied that they were genuinely seeking entry only as visitors and intended to leave the United Kingdom after a visit. The UKVI was also not satisfied that they had sufficient funds to meet the cost of the proposed visit.

We provided guidance to Mr M in gathering further documents and preparing his statement in support of the Pre-action Protocol Letter. The Pre –Action Protocol Letter was prepared to clarify how the UKVI failed to properly consider the submitted documents which clearly demonstrated their financial stability in India.

The Judicial Review unit of UKVI overturned the refusal decision after 14 days and Mr M and his family were granted visitor visas. They were overjoyed to finally visit the UK, see his brother and family whom he had not seen for some time.
