  • You have no real assets & ties to your host country
  • No evidence of accommodation on offer in the UK
  • You have failed to explain your current circumstances
  • No evidence of a relationship with your claimed sponsor
  • Insufficient funds you cannot meet the cost of the onward journey
  • No previous immigration travel history
  • Poor application preparation

Your partner would stand a good chance of getting a visa if she has a stable job or income, they will frown upon bar work as they may believe she is selling her body or she may be involved in prostitution.
