Hi there, I have been refused twice to UK Visitor Visa and

Customer Question

Hi there,

I have been refused twice to UK Visitor Visa and once for the Australian Short Stay visa. The last refusal for the UK visa was under the Entry Clearance 320 (7A) as I mentioned to Q 6.3 to mention my rejection of the Australian visa but have declare my previous UK visitor visa.

But in Jan 2014 I have applied again for the UK visa keep all my documents and I have been approved the UK Business visitor visa.

Now I am in UK, does this meant that my old rejection history affects further to me? Do I need to consider?

I am looking for the another sponsorship or student visa to apply for UK to remain for long term and seeking for the further stay after I am back from UK. Whats the process I need to take care?

You may not switch into a long stay visa from within the UK, you would need to leave the UK first and apply from your home country.

If you meet all the requirements for a student or work visa under the points based system, you should be granted the visa, previous refusals do not automatically mean you are not eligible for further visas, as you have seen in your case you were granted the business visit visa despite previous refusals.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your answer. Is it possible to check my refusal letter and suggest me the further path for my long stay?


I have a company who is happy to start the sponsorship for me and we are worried that is I am banned for 10 years? is there anyways I can find our I am banned for 10 years or not?


I have attached my refusal letter as well.

As you have been granted the UK business visa, the 10 year ban would not apply to you.

See page 27 of this guidance:

after a person has breached UK immigration laws, we have given a visa

Does this meant that my previous mistake of not answering the Q 6.3 got cleaned up. And I am eligble for any visa type of the future visa after my this visa grant?
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
It would depend but if you do not answer questions correctly and this is discovered in the future, that could be seen as deception and you could be banned.

All the best

do you meant if I do make a mistake in answering future application? or do you meant my previous application?
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
If the previous application form was not filled in accurately and a visa was issued, the visa could be revoved if the inaccuracy came to light.
