Is that it then?

TGF applied for a tourist visa and was refused, more worryingly, there is now a 10 year order on her application. I'm not sure if she is banned because the language and wording is poor. I expect it was written by a Thai.

Essentially she was working in a salon, but because it was struggling wasn't getting many hours, the salon owner closed the salon for good two days before the visa people called to check and the tgf had no idea that was happening, so said she had worked the day before.  They have said she used deception.

 

It says any future applications will be viewed on their individual merits however you are likely to be refused unless the circumstances change. I am also satisfied you have used deception in this application and may also be refused under the immigration rules for a period of 10 years.

 

No idea what to do next, I assumed it was a ban at first but the wording is pretty loose. Should I be going down the route of judicial review or is that hopeless? Any hope of changing the visa type? Or anybody know any visa experts I can speak to.

If I have it right the embassy has good reason for believing that something was not right. You say that the business closed the day before the day that she told the embassy that she last worked (ie on the day she told them she last worked the business was already closed). That tells them that she was dishonest giving them good reason to suspect that at least a part of the application was fraudulent. Given that I would say the chances of her getting a visa in the near future is very slim unless you can prove that their conclusion was incorrect.

One way forward might be to contact them and explain what happened and ask what steps you could take to verify what you are claiming is truthful. This might involve getting a statement from the business owner.

yes was thinking that but apparently the only next step is to go for a judicial review at court in London which she wouldn't win.
