Is this discrimination by the immigrations officer? watch

    Hey there

    My uncle was planning for a family visit the UK, and as he isn't a UK citizen, he is applying for a VISA. However, he was rejected because he wasn't in what was described as a "viable financial position" to make the trip. The officer thought that he would come to the UK and stay here after the VISA expired. I am extremely frustrated because my uncle has enough money to make this trip several times over and ride the London Eye until he developed a fear of heights! He had a moderate amount of money left in his savings account, and this was why he was rejected. Therefore, I have to ask is this decision a fair one?


    There's an awful lot of migrants who come the the (insert any country) on a visitors visa Nd then end up staying.

    Immigration officers throughout the world will assess how much of a risk an individual is and one of the questions they ask is their financial situation.
Do you have a role model?
