Please house, for the a Point based system dependant visa(spouse) must the bank statement for proof of funds for maintenance be mine? Or I could use my husband's bank statement since he's the main applicant.

Hello Nairalanders,

I would like to confirm if it's okay to book a hotel that says "No deposit will be charged"?

I want to know, if not I may persuade them to charge my card for one night as to avoid being declined during visa processing.

Kindly respond.

Thanks

Some hotels delete the booking if not paid after some period of time.
This can cause problems if an official checks at visa office or point of entry.

Make sure that you understand and follow the hotel policy.

Hiya.
No deposit will be charged does not mean they "might" not check your card to see if it's valid/has enough funds.

Please use a card with some funds to book.

Hello good people
Please I need guidance from people well experienced with the following issues
1.I have almost finished my online UK visa application and I am yet to see any place where documents can be attached or added.Does it mean documents are only submitted when u go for appointment at UK visa centre?
2.l learnt that documents submitted at visa centres must be original.However,my sister who is going to provide accommodation for me during my stay in UK is only going to scan and email her supporting documents to me.is this going to be a problem?
3.while filling my online visa application form in the column for income and expenditure,a question is asked"do u have savings,properties or other income for example from stocks and shares".when I click YES it then ask "total monthly income from"
-savings and investments
-properties and rents
-stocks and shares
-public funds or benefits
-other sources including friends and families

Please am confused on whether to click YES or No to the question that ask if I have savings ,properties or other income because the only thing I have is my monthly salary,moreso,there is an earlier column that have already asked me if am employed and my monthly salary which I have already answered to the affirmative.
Thanks

There is no such thing as a "work permit"
You can visit as a tourist which forbids working.
As a student you can work 20hrs per week, but that requires a different visa.

To go to the UK. to work you must be employed by a UK firm in a skilled position. They will then sponsor a visa for you.

Anything else is working as an illegal.

@justwise thank you for all you are doing on this thread

I was refused a visiting visa in November 2016 as a result of irregular deposits in my account. I plan to re-apply first week of February. I read your suggestion on this thread that we should plan not to spend more the equivalent of 2 months salary or little above that on our planned trip. my question is this

1. Although am applying first week of February, am planning to travel 1st of April, will N350k as cost of trip be too much (my cousin who is inviting me is taking care of accommodation and feeding). the 350k is for ticket, transportation and miscellaneous.

2. in the form, what do I fill in the space for accommodation, feeding as my cousin is taking care of that

3. what is the difference between cost of trip and how much you have available for the trip? can it be the same amount

4. my salary is N100,070 after tax, I bake and decorate halls on weekends and holidays but it not every weekend and the amount is not specific, it can be as low as 30k or as high as 100k. so what do I fill in the space for total monthly income from all source.

5. I also, wanted to find out if I decide to register my business, will they accept it along side with my salaried job, seeing am working full-time but run the business on the side

6. if it's acceptable, and I decide to register it now, I learnt it's only tax receipt I can be given for the year not tax clearance. certificate. will they accept tax receipt

thank you

Hello lovely people and happy new year.

I want to apply for a visiting visa to the UK with my daughter this month.I have lived there(legally) before and returned to Nigeria 6years ago but haven't visited since then cos I have been unemployed.My sister is a UK citizen and wants to invite me and my daughter to visit before my husband visits maybe next year.I am self employed as well as my husband.

My sister would be the one to sponsor the trip but not sure of what financial evidence I would have to present on my own part.

Please what are the requirements and documents to hold for the application.I have checked the website(gov.uk) for requirements but I just want to get information from someone who probably has had a similar case in order to get a clearer and better picture.

I hope to get a response soon.
Many thanks and God bless you all

1. I think the new rule they introduced removed online uploading of documents, you take your documents to visa centre to be scanned.

2. You can go with that it will be accepted.

3. That question is simply, do you have savings or not? Property, shares etc

1. That will not be too much if you provide paper evidence to explain the additional income from your side business

2. There must be other options apart from hotel in that form, look for one related to family.

3. If the actual cost of the trip is 300 and you are traveling with 400 then 300 is the cost of the trip while 400 is what available for the trip. If things did not go as budgeted you still have some money to cover up.

4. Add up all your monthly income.

5. That will look desperate, you register a business just about when you about to apply for visa

6. No idea

Since you run your own business you need to provide your business account and your personal account.

In terms on documents to submit..we have listed that here far too many times all you need to do is read few pages back.

Even the website you visited listed documents needed of you.

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Isoken2000: 4:13pm On Jan 07
@ justwise

Thank you for your response.

1. if I add up all my income; some months salary + side business could be 150k while the next month could be 180k or 200k, so which amount do I fill on my form as monthly income.

2. I need further clarification on cost of trip and money available for trip. is it cost of trip + extra money at hand that makes up money available for trip or they are both separate amounts

thank you
