FrontPageLawyer: Good morning the gurus. For someone visiting, westminster abbey, buckingham palace, big ben and london underground, which city, area can you advise such applicant book hotel reservation? As i understand it is compulsory as a tourist to always book hotel close to your attraction centres. Thank you
Your best option is www.Google.com, for more reliable information

Look for premier Inn, travelodge, holiday-Inn..etc those are budget hotels you can find in almost every single city in the UK. There are too many of time in London. Booking is good as well.

This is definitely not the first or the second time that you're applying for a visa... Therefore I'm disappointed because, I suppose you're too experienced to be asking this.

Hi Uchechukwu, was your application processed in Lagos or Abuja? it seems references that start with IKAC are applications dealt with in Lagos, and IKAB Abuja.. Not sure about this though.

Just wondering where they are more considerate.

Hi bro, am trying to process for a visa but ran into a situation am not too clear with regarding d statement of account of sponsor to be used.
D acct has registered a constant balance of over 600k for more than 6months in d past, but it currently stands at a lower but constant balance of 300k. Is it still advisable to use d acct considering that it is lower than 600k or shld I get another acct?
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 2 by LondonCool(m): 6:29am On Aug 02, 2013
feyi4luv: I included in the application we are gong togeda and he also write a letter too bt he already has a 2yrs visa dey said I dnt include my marriage certificate which I did

What is the purpose of your UK trip? Where will you be staying in UK ? Why isn't your husband supporting your application financially? Traveling is about financial economics, that's what the ECO looks at, (i.e. the economics of the trip). Your circumstances do not match the profile of a 'genuine visitor' to UK. What are you going to be doing in UK? Why would your in-law want to spend an outlay of around N400k to N500k of company funds for your trip to UK? (i.e flight ticket, accommodation, transportation, feeding, shopping, etc?).

Your present situation could have improved if you had direct family relatives in UK inviting you to visit, but with your husbands civil service status his bank account cash flow ( credit and debit turnover) may not be enough to support your visa application. The ECO's normally frown at applications being supported by company bank accounts (without any meeting minutes where it was decided that the company should pay for your UK trip).

My advice: clarify the purpose of your trip. Get your inlaw to transfer his funds to a current account. Or get the funds in your account and start petty trading as proof of your financial circumstance, so that you could travel as a Tourist who also intends to buy things for her business in UK. That looks a more plausible presentation of yourself.

My friend, go to Travel lodge website and book their London hotels they are the most cheapest you can get. They also have hotels around Tower Bridge, Stratford , Blackfriars, Aldgate, Kings Cross, etc which are in Central London (apart from Stratford).

Get a proper convincing travel itinerary. E.g.
Day 1: Taking the Big Bus Tour around London
Day 2: Visiting Westminster- House of Parliament, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Change of Horse Guards,etc
Day 3: Visiting London Eye, London Acquarium and taking a Cruise across River Thames.
Day 4: Museum day- visiting Natural History Museum, Science Museum, etc
Day 5: Checking out Demons at the London Dungeon
Day 6: Shopping day : Shopping at Liverpool Street Market, East Street market , Oxford Circus, Westfield Shopping Centre. Window shopping at Harrods and Selfridges.
Day 7: Visit the Tate Modem Art Gallery, strolling by the Embarkment, locating Trafalgar Square. Jermyn Street is close by , so include shopping at TM Lewin, Hewes and Curtis and Savile Row tailors.
Day 8: Visiting Nigerian restaurants- 805, Wazobia Restaurant and Calabar Kitchen ( all along Old Kent Road).
Day 9: A visit to Emirates stadium ,etc

This is how a proper traveling itinerary looks like( no need to add visiting London Underground, lol).

Day 5 was only tongue-in-cheek, you can remove the Demons there.

Teecov: Hello everyone, Is loan facilities from bank can be used as strong ties in Nigeria for visa application?

The ties relate to strong family ties like wife and children, or business ties - family business, or proof of landed property ( with title deeds).

You're using a sponsor who has N300k balance in his bank account statement and you expect the visa officer to believe that you'd be a genuine visitor to the UK?
That would be impossible even with the 600k. By the way, it is obvious that your sponsor will run out of cash.., that is not what the visa officer wants.
