I would like to apply for a visitors visa for a Thai national

Customer Question

I would like to apply for a visitors visa for a Thai national to visit the UK this year for a maximum of six months. We were given a refusal in Bangkok as there is no apparent source of income. the lady in question acts and is paid as my housekeeper in Hua Hin. I have lived in Thailand for 20 years but for the last 5 years have spent 6 months in the UK each year. What can I do?
Thank you

Did you submit statements executed by you both to the effect of what you have just stated?


Did you offer to sponsor her?


Did you provide bank statements for both you and her showing the monies available to fund her stay here?


Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Thank you for your prompt reply, Yes I did offer to sponsor her but we needed bank statements to show availability of funds; there is very little in my partner's account as most of the money goes to support her 15 year old son who lives under the supervision of the grandparents. In my case I did not have readily available in Thailand my bank statements. As I am in the UK at present I have the necessary statements but I was wondering if anything could be done here before I return to Thailand.I did write a statement about her circumstances as requested by the officer during the interview with my partner.


kindest regards
