@MJ2008, Akolawale,
I didn't quite follow the story of yettidear's appeal denial, but am i correct to think that her visa trouble emanated from a false tax clearance document. From akolawale's last post, he stated that he foresaw a denial of her appeal - my actual question is what do you think went wrong in yettidear's case?
A cousin of mine actually has a similar case, he got refused a uk visa twice reason being that he unknowingly submitted a false tax clearance of his uncle's company - he was served a 10year ban on second refusal, and he proceeded with an appeal on the grounds that he was not aware of the authenticity of the document.

Can anyone advice on this issue, what the chances of his appeal being allowed?

it is very difficult to defend such cases, you should hire a brilliant immigration lawyer for this. falsification of docs is a grievous offense one that the embassy takes seriously. your cousin must convince the judge as to the circumstances which lead to your cousin's innocence on the false submission of that pertinent doc.

@ mj2008. pls how do i go about my follow-up inquiry?? do i need to quote anything?? as i stated early, my appeal is being done by a law firm. do i need to contact them for any details or info i might need for the e-mail am sending to the ait
Re: Uk Visa - Visa Appeal Process by MJ2008(f): 4:56pm On May 05, 2009
no need to contact the law firm. since you are the appellant you are allowed to make follow up/inquiry. just quote your post ref from notice of decision, your bday, country of origin that's it and then wait for about 4 weeks. bec. it usually take some time for your appeal to be uploaded in their database. best of luck!

i am on paper appeal

In that case, its very difficult to send all originals. If i were you, i will send some originals that i knew can be easily replaced then send the certified copies of the remaining. I will also send a STRONG letter explainning the circumstances.

Good luck.
Re: Uk Visa - Visa Appeal Process by MJ2008(f): 4:23am On May 06, 2009
To Shanga, this might be helpful

Entry Clearance Guidance - General Instructions

27.6 - Processing appeal documents
Original documents submitted by the appellant must be preserved in the condition in which they were received. If they are received in mutilated condition put them in envelopes. Do not punch holes in them or staple them. Original documents that you are satisfied with, should be returned to the appellant after being photocopied with the Post stamp clearly shown on the photocopy.


You can cite this to the AIT in your request.

Re: Uk Visa - Visa Appeal Process by tamed: 4:00pm On May 07, 2009
Hello all,

I was wondering if you guys know how long it takes for the visa office in lagos to issue a visa. You see, my mother won her appeal for a visiting visa back in february and the judge instructed the visa office to issue her a visa but she has still not heard anything from them. She has tried to go to their office but they would not let her in, their phone numbers are not working and nobody is answering my emails. Do you guys know what step I can take next? I normally wouldn't mind them taking so long and I am very grateful to God that we won the appeal but my mother is supposed to be here for my wedding next month so now I'm just panicking/praying.

Thanky you

I thought you lodged your appeal direct to the AIT but it's obvious your lawyer did it with the post. Get in touch with your lawyer as to what docs did he submit. Did he submit the Notice of Appeal form and your Grounds of Appeal? You should be able to SET OUT your grounds clearly and be able to reason out and provide evidence as much as possible. I'm afraid your lawyer may have just written a letter of reconsideration otherwise why would you be notified for a FULL appeal? Pls confirm this with your lawyer.

Your appeal will now be forwarded to the AIT by the post (British Embassy) if you have submitted the AIT-2 form to them.

The rules say up to 2 months after receiving the copy of the determination. You can write a follow up letter to the embassy.
Re: Uk Visa - Visa Appeal Process by tamed: 12:59pm On May 08, 2009
Thank you very much for your response. I have received an emailed response from them telling me that under the data protection act, they cannot give me information about my mother unless she has given them written permission. So now I will, get her to email them again quoting her reference number and we'll see where we go from there. I shall keep you informed so that anyone in my position can benefit.

Re: Uk Visa - Visa Appeal Process by peter2010(m): 2:39pm On May 16, 2009
my uncle re-applied for UK work permit entry clearance on 22nd of April, 2009 to my surprised he has not heard anything from the embassy. When he checked d status on the UKVAC Webiste this weekend it says (My visa application has been forwarded to the British High Commission). It's taking more than three weeks now and his  first application which was refused based on the fact that they tried to contact the employer but he was not responding 2 their questions and they believed that the work permit was not acquired in a genuine way (which is definately genuine) was sent back in 10 working days. Though his Solicitor in uk called him that they called on 13th of may to confirm their letter. Please kindly advise me through the look of things now is he going to be issued the visa. he has been in uk for 2 on working holiday before coming back to naija to apply for the work permit entry clearance (he got the work permit itself in uk). PLEASE YOUR URGENT AND CANDID ADVICE IS NEEDED.[b] Thanks[/b]

THANKS YOU ALL

Stop giving yourself headache.

Call the school involved and explain the situation. They'll definitely tell you what to do.
Re: Uk Visa - Visa Appeal Process by paramajit: 4:40pm On Jun 04, 2009
