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?

please see the purpose of the refusal in the attachment

if you would like to see the full document I submited also. they are online in my SkyDrive which I can give you access to.

Expert:  Alice H replied 3 years ago.
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?
