Thank you for your question and patience, I’m Tom and I’ll try to help you.

The refusal should state what appeal rights you have, but I expect appeal rights will be limited to human rights grounds. Unfortunately, I cannot see that there is a human rights argument her.

This means that your only option is to apply again with a new application, correcting the errors or omissions of the original application.

If you have now paid the balance of the cruise payment then I would submit evidence of payment and a receipt/acknowledgement from the cruise company with the new application.

You should also both execute sworn statements with a lawyer where you are confirming your travel plans and specifically that you intend to only be in the UK for three days and only for the purpose of reaching the destination from where the cruise leaves from. You should also include evidence of the cruise departure.

An element of the refusal is based on your finances. In part this means that you have to submit further evidence of the monies that you have available to you in the form of bank statements or statements from any other assets or accounts that you have from which you will finance the trip.

It also mentions that they do not consider that you have provided evidence that you financial support your partner. In this regard, in your personal sworn statements you should outline how you financially support eachother,showing how your organise your finance as a couple in order to meet the day to day expenses of your life together.

In addition I would also submit what documentary evidence you have (emails, phone records, text messages, photos of time you have spent together) substantiating your relationship to show that you are in a relationship together.

My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question.

Kind regards,
