APPLICATIONS FOR A UK VISA - BURDEN OF PROOF
IN filing any type of UK Visa at the UK Embassy here in the Philippines, the burden is on the applicant to prove that he or she is eligible for the UK visa applied for. If the ECO, based on the documents submitted by the applicant, determines that the latter is not qualified, a refusal will certainly result.
It is therefore very crucial that the applicant be able to overcome "the burden" so that the ECO handling the application will be satisfied that all requirements have been met and complied with, and as a result, issue a favorable decision.
Based on ECO-Friendly's experience, most grounds for denial of any type of UK visa applications are mainly due to the insufficiency of supporting documents which the applicant fails to recognize since they merely rely on the list indicated in the UKBA website.
As will be explained later, the list is not a comprehensive enumeration, and is therefore not applicable to each and every UK visa applicant.
And this is the essence of "ECO-Friendly". We make it a point that all our clients are fully armed with the relevant supporting documents when they file their application for any type of UK Visa.
Accordingly, if the supporting documents are complete and they corroborate all the declarations and allegations in the application, there is a higher chance that the ECO will be satisfied that all the requirements have been complied with, and a favorable decision would most likely be obtained.
As a final note, it is worthy to emphasize that a satisfied ECO will most probably issue a favorable and friendly decision. With this type of approach, we can confidently declare that your application for any type of UK visa has a better chance of getting the favorable attention of the ECO.
Now you know why we are ECO-Friendly. [MORE FILING TIPS!]
