Hey, not an expert but... What were the grounds of the refusal for a USA visa? Was it a tourist visa and when did it happened? Did they have any ban to the country or just normal refusal?jattsaab wrote: ↑Fri Sep 20, 2019 8:25 pmHi, I have applied for a UK tourist visa for my parents from India. I just now realised that I had forgot to mention their 2 refusals few years back for USA visa. I was wondring if I could get any advice on this being a potential reason they could be refused their visa now? Thanks for help.
Most of the times it is the "ties to home country" part which proves to be the most difficult. I don't see in this reply anything re inability to pay for the visit.geoeng wrote: ↑Fri Sep 27, 2019 11:33 amWithout knowing what you supplied with the application, there is clearly concern that your parents would have no intention or financial ability to return to India at the end of the visit as well as concern that they would breach the visit visa conditions by working in order to cover any financial costs associated with the visit. You would have to show stronger documentation of intent to return to India and ability to pay for the trip in order to be successful in any future applications.
The last few lines of the refusal relate to concerns about working or accessing public funds in order to have sufficient funds for the visit including planned activities and a return/onward journey. Not sure what was included in initial application, but I imagine having a return ticket and evidence of pre-paid planned activities may help for future applications.
Ow yes, sorry, I missed this part. I would not recommend investing into any tickets with this kind of application history (unless they are refundable). Normally a sponsorship letter from OP should help with this.geoeng wrote: ↑Fri Sep 27, 2019 12:27 pmThe last few lines of the refusal relate to concerns about working or accessing funds in order to have sufficient funds for the visit including planned activities and a return/onward journey.

Agreed. There was another topic here just a couple of days ago with a less favourable outcome.
DId you provide titles (recent confirmations from registrar) for these properties?jattsaab wrote: ↑Fri Sep 27, 2019 1:17 pmMy dad is a retired policeman.

They wont carry sufficient weight as both can be cancelled at nominal fee.
