1. My relations ( distant cousins) did not submit declaration in support of my application because i did not request for it. Actually, i had applied for a business visit visa for a business meeting in London which did not hold the first time i was in London. THat visa expired and i applied for another business visit visa for same meeting but the chairman of my company died and that had to be aborted. However, the visas still running,hence i had to use it with my family to visit our relation. So, it was not the intial intention to visit her,hence we never requested for Declarative documents from her.
2. The supporting documents i enclosed in the latest application are: my employment letter,pay slips,bank statements,landed estate deeds,business club certificates,itinerary of countries visited,earlier refusal of leave to enter the UK,tax clearance certtificates,family pictures and documents of marriage,shares and other property documents,childrens birth certificates,letter from employer confirming my status and approving the vacation trip personally signed by the MD.
Apologies for not getting back early. That is what is contained in the letter that as i " have been refused under paragraph 320 (7B) of the Immigration Rules,any further applications will be subject to the automatic refusal period until 23/05/2020". I was put on a one year bar,then why this?
i dont intend following the route of family visit. The guys there are distant cousins,not immediate family members. I want to be visiting the UK on vacation with my family at all times on my own. Your suggestion is anchored on sworn declarations from my counsins but i dont want to follow that route. Can you kindly advise another option?
The last application which i made but was just refused stated that i was going on vacation to London and do not intend visiting my cousins in Nothigham. I even did hotel reservation in London.
Can you advise on best persons to give character reference.
