Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by saintkola(m): 1:05pm On Apr 12, 2012
Hello, i just wanna share my story.
Last september i was a final year student in a naija university & my sister sent me an invitation letter to come visit her in uk after my final exams.
It took my school 3 months to issue a letter identifying me as a student and I submitted the letter with my application on nov 30th.
The application was ready for collection in 12 days and it was refused for 2 reasons:
1. The ECO claimed i didn't provide my employment details and I clearly stated i was a student.
2. The ECO said I didn't provide any documentation from NYSC cos in my application, I said I would return for Nysc.
I had the right to appeal but I didn't cos an appeal takes 6months to process.

What I did was, I contacted a lawyer to draft a letter for me and in the letter I countered the ECO's reasons for refusing me entry clearance to the uk.
I got a reply within a month asking me to go submit my passport and be issued a a visitor's visa.

please house i need your best advice concerning my visa application refusal, which is stated below

you state that you will fund your proposed trip to the UK and have submitted your personal bank statements evidence of finance. You state you monthly income to be 180,000(£720) however the credits and balances in your account are not commensurate with your declared monthly income
you have not provided an ITCC or any further evidence of your stated income and I am therefore not satisfied that your income or employment is as claimed. Therefore on the balance of probabilities I am not satisfied that you will be maintained and accommodated in the uk without working or having recourse to public funds or are able to meet the cost of return or an onward journey by paragraph 1(vi) and (vii) of HC395
I therefore refuse your application because I am not satisfied on the balance of probabilities that you meet all of the requirements of the relevant paragraph of the united kingdom immigration rules.
Your right of appeal is limited to the grounds refered to in section 84(1)© of the nationality immigration and asylum act 2002 (www.legislation.gov.uk) .

[b]so pls i need your advice on the best thing to do concerning this my case, i submitted all the necessary documents, tax clearance, certificate of incorporation,bank statement, receipt of transaction and many others, i have over 2 million in my account with transactions on it, so i don't know how else they want me to prove to them[/b].

I’m so sorry about your refusal. if you believe you have presented all relevant information and documents and u also believe the ECO erred in law or did not consider all the evidence u presented to him before making his decision, then you may consider appealing the decision of the ECO if you made a family visit application but if it is a general visit application you can ask for an administrative review of the decision. However, if you are in a hurry to travel to the UK, you may reapply and address all the issues the ECO raised your refusal letter but there is no guarantee that same thing will not repeat itself again.
I had similar experience last year when I applied for 10 years family visa. I appealed the decision, I was given a hearing date by the Immigration Tribunal, however, the UK embassy in Abuja called me to come and submit my passport and my 10 year visa was endorsed on it. So you have different options to explore. Please let me emphasis this before u appeal make sure u are upright and have evidence to support u claims.

Limited rights of appeal means, NO rights of appeal whatsoever: therefore, there is nothing you can do about this very case, it has been decided and is closed.
But you can correct the error in the future; ensure that your bank statement reflects evidence of your income (wages/salaries) and support your future applications with payslips of same: this is more acceptable than to lodge lump amount of money from unverifiable sources into your account. Cheers

He has a right of appeal but his right of appeal is limited to the grounds refered to in section 84(1)(c)of the nationality immigration and asylum act. the ground is "that the decision is unlawful under section 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998 (c. 42) (public authority not to act contrary to Human Rights Convention) as being incompatible with the appellant’s Convention rights". He can also ask for an administrative review of the decision or reapply.

You should have been aware that the UK embassy never uses absolute statement such as "THIS APPLICATION ATTRACTS NO RIGHTS OF APPEAL", rather they politely put it this way: This application does not attract the full rights of appeal, and that automatically mean NO RIGHTS whatsoever.
In the UK embassy, it's either your application attracts the full rights of appeal which means, you can appeal the decision or you have LIMITED rights of appeal which means, you can't make an appeal: you need to have the full rights to be eligible to make an appeal.
If you assume that the terms are in three categories like: FULL RIGHTS, LIMITED RIGHTS and NO RIGHTS then that is not the UK embassy hence in the UK embassy, it's either you have the "FULL RIGHTS" or you have a "LIMITED RIGHT"; never would they use an absolute statement such as NO RIGHTS

But the reason you gave for the refusal does not suggest that you are a business man, rather that you are in employment.
Well, if you are a business man and you make your earnings by means of contract or costumers, then, you may want to instruct your payers or clients to enter their names and make remarks that would reflect in your bank statement as the payees and the purpose of payment: Surely, if your bank account demonstrates these records, then it is good to be used as a bank statement for visa application

Well, my bank allows a payer to make remark, though, it is optional.
But if your bank does not have provision for remark, then, how about payers name/ Don't you have other supporting documents that explains the reasons of transactions?

I really don't know about the calibre of business that you are running, and i don't know the authenticity of your invoice document; ie whether it consists of duty analysis including tax deduction etc, if it does, then it could be considered an official document which would be acceptable by the embassy: but if it's just an ordinary receipt that you write and tear off a booklet (lacking no official duty analysis and not having a database content), then i'm afraid such ca not be acceptable by the embassy, it may even be considered fake
Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by jtorty: 3:22pm On May 05, 2012
appeal works with patience but its expensive in terms of solicitors fees. i got my visa!!!
Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by N101: 2:49pm On May 06, 2012
In case anyone has submitted an appeal to the IAT over the past few weeks, just to let you know that there's a backlog, so it may be a while before you receive acknowledgement.

I spoke to someone recently who has contacted the IAT's customer services number and was told that there's a backlog - they were still opening mail from the 28th March as of Friday 5th May.

So yes, it is definitely an exercise in patience!

Why did he back date his arrival date even when his finger print was taken in the UK? His finger print was taken with 1970 DOB and he applied for settlement visa with 1972 DOB? He must be really silly to do such thing.Let him pray long and hard for this case.
