My sons first visa application was denied, because he did not state his criminal record, which was questioned by him and myself, it was an error in the application form by Harvey Travel in South Africa, they told him that it was not necessary? They then did another application with a letter stating that it was their mistake, and even paid for the 2nd request and all the costs, I have all the evidence and documentation on hand, the 2nd request was applied for, and have just had the second refusal, to quote the denial form, 'You were refused entry clearance for using deception on the 11th August 2014. You have failed to address your reasons for doing so' I question this as the letter from Harvey Travel should have explained the reason? Also they state that his job does not earn enough money in South Africa for him to return home????? I supplied letters to state that I was paying for this holiday, all costs incurred by me!!!!!! I am a pensioner and am 68 years old, all I wanted was for my son to visit me here in the UK, I am a British Citizen and he has never been here to visit me,, I feel that my Human Rights have been evoked,,,,,,, he would not stay here in the country, he has a job and commitments in South Africa!!!! His petty crimes ie, drunken driving and resisting arrest, he spent 6 months in jail and served his suspended sentence 3 years ago, he is not in the high risk criminal category, and I am most aggrieved that the Home Office would not let him visit me for 10 days!!!!!! I had arranged for transport to and from Heathrow for him, I live in a studio apartment and could not possible accommodate him for any length of time. No one at the home office bothered to phone or contact me with regards ***** ***** if they had, they would know that he would have gone back to South African, he has no ties in the UK and at this stage, could be bothered to live here anyway!
Yes for 14 days
Do I still hold on to this page or will you email me your reply?
A letter from Harvey Travel was included in his second application stating the information supplied in his first application was their error!
Please read my above correspondence carefully.
How do we proceed from here,, another application is not an option!
What is Article 8? and how do we go about doing this?
I have already supplied the Home Office with 2 letters stating that I am responsible for all his accommodation and welfare. This is also not an option! How do I go about claiming my Human Rights in this matter?
There must be a way, besides writing letters to the press and to the Government!!!!!!!
Thanks for your answers, but I have gone the attorney route in South Africa, this I knew from the start, but hoped that there was another route to go in the uK,,,,,
