I am in dire need to get my UK visa, tier 5, temporary visa for sports. I am a US citizen applying for a UK visa. I am a recent college student and unfortunately left my job thinking this process would not be this difficult. I reside in the United States.
Based on my 2nd application, I need help to understand, If I resubmit my visa will they automatically refuse? There is usage of language that says "may be refused under 320(7b)" and "ATTRACTS" an automatic ban up to 10 years. This does not say directly, I am banned. How do I clarify?
VISA APPLICATION #1
My first application was denied because the I was provided with a Certificate of Sponsorship that was not the correct document. I had no way to validate this.
- I submitted a Visa administrative review to advise them and provided a letter from the agency to document the error. They also provided me with the COS reference number. My first application was still denied and I had to resubmit.
VISA APPLICATION #2 (EXPEDITED) I submitted the 2nd visa application and attached the required documents. There is one questions that is included with the "criminal, broke law" section that asked if I had been refused for any visas, including UK? I made a mistake and said no. I have been in constant contact with UK support by email and paid phone previously and in no way was I trying to be deceptive. My 2nd visa was rejected with the attached statement.

What should/can I do? I have paid for 2 applications (1 expedited) and I was suppose to be there in September. I have graduated from college and left my job and this was my desire to play basketball. I need help, please give me any advice.
I made a mistake and said noThat is not true. I believe there is a section where you mention when and why your visa was refused. If you had given the reason and ticked no, it might be considered as a clerical error. But ticking no and giving no reason at all is seen as using deception to gain entry.
