My sponsored tourist visa was rejected citing reasons that were unconvincing. Taking it positively as you mentioned.As others informed, I think its just simply auto generated email that people receive. It was for few documents that I have already provided except online 40sp (I attached under my name before)We submitted an online application (India) on January 14,2019. Received a s56 request form with a pre- assessment notification on 9th October, 2019. We applied for a tourist visa on 5th October and it got rejected. My application is also under further assessment. Please update if you get any improvements on your application.
Did you apply Visitor Visa(Family Sponsored)? I have seen lately so many rejections for normal visitor visa! I have applied family sponsored Visitor visa 2 times and got 3 months visa both times. On the other hand take it positive, they might have rejected as its under processing and they might be looking into to go for main visa
One of the forum on this site linked with Partner Visa Processing at New Delhi even advised that as soon as processing starts if applicant is onshore, its time to fly straight away back to country as otherwise they will put your file away to wait to for you to come back first!!
I applied for another police clearance, since mine got expired and from reading the previous posts on this forum, the next document that they might usually ask for is a pcc and Medical clearance in case if they have expired. Does the grant come from New Delhi AHC ?
