Thanks for your question.
As it stands, you have two options:
An Appeal under Section 84(1)(c) is limited to human rights grounds. In order to be successful, you have to establish that the decision of the UKBA will breach one of your fundamental human rights. In addition, you also have to prove that you meet the requirements of the rules.
At present, all decisions issued after 19th December will have to pay a fee of £140.00 when submitting the Appeal.
2. Fresh Application
If you submit a fresh application, you will need to address the points raised in the previous UKBA refusal decision.
From the information you have provided above, I would suggest that you Appeal and you request your Sponsor to attend the Appeal and provide evidence.
In order to Appeal, you will need to complete Form IAFT-2 and submit this within 28 days of receipt of the decision.
Once the Appeal Hearing date has been issued, you will also be provided with Directions. These are normally that you will submit any documentation that you intend to rely upon no later than 5 working days before the Hearing.
If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.
A Multi-Entry Business Visitors Visa still does not allow you to visit the UK as a Tourist.
With regard to a new application, if you will be visiting the UK as a Tourist, you will need to submit a General Visitors Form unless you have family in the UK in which case I would suggest you complete the Family Visitors Form.
You will have to state in your application that you were previously refused and should provide the reasons of refusal along with a copy of the decision. You should then attempt to address the points raised in the Letter of Refusal in your new application.
With regard to the 2 weeks that you have spent in the UK instead of the 1 week, this is not in itself a offence. Your Visa allowed you to stay up to six months. However, he UKBA would probably argue that you stated that you would be in the UK for 1 week but ended staying 2 weeks. This would lead them to argue that your intentions were not what you originally stated.
My firm does do work of this nature, however, as Experts, we are not permitted to act for customers outside of the site. However, I could recommend a lawyer for you. I would suggest you contact Mr. Hassan Butt on +441189 585 855 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If I have answered your original question, kindly click accept.
If you do not, I do not get credit for my time.
Your question will not close and I will be happy to answer any follow-up questions.
If you could marry first, this would simplify your application slightly.
Any decision taken now should not adversely affect your application for a settlement visa as you are applying for a different category of Visa.
With regard to your previous marriage, this will obviously have an affect on your ability to obtain a Spouse Visa and you will have to prove that your previous marriage has irretrievably broken down before you will be granted a further Visa.
Thus, you will need to make sure that you submit the final Divorce Decree at the time you make an application for a Spouse Visa.
