I applied for a UK business visit visa in Madrid Spain,on 13th

Customer Question

I applied for a UK business visit visa in Madrid Spain,on 13th this month and was refused on 17th this month. I just got the decision letter yesterday.

I a a Nigerian, and never been refused a visa from any country before and don't know how to make an appeal against he decision of the immigration officer.

I own a UK limited company with registered office in the UK and active since 2010 till date. I also owe a private company here in Spain were I reside.

My main purpose of applying for the business visa is to open a bank account for my UK company in the UK with HSBC bank. I also would have want to use the opportunity to see and talk face to face with my accountant in the UK. I would have also used the opportunity to visit where my company registered office is in London and may be be able to see where HMRC is located in the UK.

I was not invited by anyone and even the HSBC bank I called to me to just walk in any time.

Can your office be able to help and take care of this aspect for me?

Your application for a visa was refused because of the lack of documentary evidence.

Do you now have evidence that you are a genuine business visitor?

Have you previously visited the UK?
