Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by HighSpot: 7:49pm On May 23, 2012
Hello,
Pls i need to know which email address i can use to follow up on my allowed appeal. Home office's 4 weeks to send letter to BHC is far spent already. And im just wondering if they have my info(phone nos) stored somewhere cos they couldnt locate my application form and file as at when d hearing took place. They sent a letter to my lawyer dt docs were misfiled, so their lawyer depended on our bundle at d court hearing. Now, im wondering if that is normal and wont delay BHC from calling me. Thanks ahead as u take ur time to shed light on ds just to help me.

Check this thread or the previous one, I have uploaded this info to a similar post to yours. I think I also included the contact phone number of BHC Abuja Visas Section that deals with Appeals. Follow the advice I gave in that post. WARNING - Patience is the watch word in getting BHC to request you to bring your passport. Also, make sure your financial status is not all different i.e., not worst than as at when you applied for the Visas 'cos the ECO can demand you provide him/her with your upto date bank statement or any other document for that matter!

What paper test were you asked to pay for?

When you say cheap school, how much will you consider to be cheap?

To be honest, I am of the opinion that this thread is irrelevant and should not be sticked since there is another thread titled " GENERAL UK Visa Enquiries"; this irrelevant thread is only occupying a space in front page.
Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by HighSpot: 9:31am On Jul 31, 2012
Thanks to everyone that has been of help to me. God bless you all. BHC called that my appeal was successful and i was asked to submit my passport and pick up later this week! I am so happy I will be with my husband soon.

Na wa o. So there are some people that matter and others that don't. Well, I guess there is no point here. You have turned your self into some sought of emperor on this thread. Well thank God our IDs are anonymous. You can go on feeling like a Visa Officer for all you care. Not joining issues with some ill trained and cultureless.

Every reasonable person understands the difference between moderators and ordinary members, and therefore understands what I meant when I said my post was intended for people that matter.
I made that post after justwise had posted, and the content of my post is enough to make any reasonable person understand who the post was directed or indirected to: those are the people that matter to that particular post, not just anyone who has the privilege to freely post comments. What is it you still don't understand?

Whatever it is I am meant to understand still doesn't take out the fact that you are being arrogant. Learn some manners especially on how to talk to people you don't even know. It doesn't matter who you were addressing. Its by chance you are here and nobody will be here for ever.

Am Happy for you. How many moths did you wait before your appeal case got approval from BHC ?. I have been waiting forever. Am so pissed now.
How long do i have to wait before hearing from them ?. Do i need to call them because i dont want to sound or appear too desperate ??..
How would you know if the Appeal Case wasn't successful ?. Am not trying to be negative but i want to consider many things. Anyone that has experience this should kindly get back to me. Thanks

Hello all. I would like some advice.
I am in the UK and my husband is in Nigeria. We have been separated for over three months now and he has been in Nigeria since June last year. He applied for the settlement visa soon after we married last year in August (today is our one year anniversary). His application was refused and we paid £140 to appeal. To cut a long story short, I went out there to visit him in May while we were appealing and I went to the UKBA offices to speak to someone, and drop the itemised phone bills to them. No one wanted to speak to me. it wasn't till June 25th they called him to submit his passport. We then received a letter16th July from the tribunal via our solicitor that the decision has been withdrawn. This is great news, but, it has now been two months since my husband submitted his passport and they keep messing us about telling us it's not ready and they are doing their checks. I email them also and they say the same thing. What I want to know is - how long is this supposed to take?? And what type of checks are they doing?? I miss my husband very much and pray we will reunited soon.

If anyone knows I would be eternally grateful

Thanks

HI JUSTWISE AND EVERYONE IN THE HOUSE...I NEED URGENT ADVISE AND OPINION ON THIS ISSUS....NOTE IM A GHANAIAN
I INVITED MY HUSHAND TO VIST ME IN THE UK, AND HE WAS REFUSED....THE DECISION STATES:

THE DECISION:
YOU STATE THAT YOU WILL FINANCE YOUR INTENDED TRAVEL TO THE UK AND HAVE SUBMITTED 2 BANKSTATEMENTS IN SUPPORT OF THIS. I NOTE THAT THE BARCLAYS BANK STATEMENT YOU HAVE SUBMITTED IS IN YOUR COMPANY NAME, AND HAS A CLOSING BALANCE OF GHS2771.70 (£923.90 BASED ON £1= GHS3.00). YOU HAVE ALSO SUBMITTED A PERSONAL ZENITH BANK STATEMENT THAT SHOWS A CLOSING BALANCE AS ON 23-7-2012 OF GHS999.61 (£333.17).[b]YOU BUSINESS ACCOUNT SHOWS A CLOSING BALANCE AS ON 27-04-12, AS THIS WAS OVER 2MONTHS PRIOR TO YOUR APPLICATION, I CANNOT BE SATISFIED THAT IT SHOWS THE MOST RECENT STATE OF YOUR BUSINESS FINANCES. I'M THEREFORE UNABLE TO BE SATISFIED THAT THERE ARE SUFFICIENT FUNDS IN THIS ACCOUNT TO COVER YOUR FLIGHT. [/b]REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL ACCOUNT, WITH A RETURN TICKET TO THE UK CSTING ON AVERAGE £800.00 (GHS 2400.00) THERE ARE INSUFFICIENT FUNDS TO COVER THE COST OF THE FLIGHT. THEREFORE I AM NOT SATISFIED THAT YOU CAN SUPPORT AND ACCOMODATE YOURSELF [/b]AND ALSO MEET THE COST OF ONWARD TRAVEL FROM THE UK
GIVEN THE ABOVE, I AM NOT SATISFIED THAT YOU ARE GENUINELY SEEKING ENTRY TO THE UK AS A VISITOR FOR LESSS THAN 6MONTS WHO INTENED TO LEAVE THE UK OT THAT CAN SUPPOT AND ACCOMODATE YOURSELF AND MEET THE COST OF ONWARD TRAVEL FROM THE UK AS REQUIRED BY PARAGRAPH 41(I) (II) (VI) AND (VII) OF HC395.
I HAVE THEREFORE REFUSED YOUR APPLIATION BECAUSE IAM NOT SATISFIED ON THE BALANCE OF PROBABILITIES, THAT YOU MEET LL OF THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE RELELVANT PARAGRAPH OF THE UNITEDKINGDOM IMMIGRATION RULES.

PLEASE JUSTWISE AND ALL POINTS TO NOTE:

HE HAS BEEN GIVEN A RIGHT TO APPEAL AGAINST THIS DEISION UNDER [b]SECTION 82(1) OF NATIONALITY, IMMIGRAION AND ASYLUM ACT 2002
.

HE SUBMITTED A 3MONTHS BANK STATEMENT OF HIS BARCLAY BANK ACCOUNT WHICH IS HIS BUSINESS ACCOUNT STARTING FROM 1ST APRIL 2012 AND ENDS IN JUNE 29 2012 WITH CLOSING BALANCE OF OVER £3600... THIS WAS JUST WEEKS PRIOR TO APPLICATION AND OFFICER CLAIMS HE ONLY SAW STATEMENT OF 2MONTHS PRIOR TO APLICATION....APPLICATION WAS 27TH OF JULY 2012.

FROM WHAT THE VISA OFFICER HAS WRITTEN HE CLAIMS HE ONLY SAW AN APRIL STATEMENT THAT SHOWS A CLOSING BALANCE ON 27-04-2012 MEANING HE FAILED TO GO THROUGH MY HUSBANDS COMPANY BANK STATEMENT CAREFULLY AND HE CLAIMS THE COMPANY BANK STATEMENT MY HUSBAND SUMITTED WAS OVER 2MONTHS PRIOR TO MY HIS VISA APPLICATION SO HE IS NOT SATISFIED IT SHOWS MY HUSBANDS MOST RECENT STATE OF BUSINESS FINANCE AND HE IS NOT SATIFIED THERE ARE SUFFICIENT FUNDS IN THE BUSINESS ACCOUNT TO COVER COST OF HIS FLIGHT ( NOTE 3MONTHS STATEMENT WAS SUBMITTED ENDING JUNE 2012).

ALSO NOTE MY HUSBANDS BUSINESS ACCOUNT RUNS AND OPERATES VERY WELL BECAUSE MONEY GOES IN AND OUT AS HE RUNS HIS BUSINESS. I DON'T KNOW HOW THE OFFICER WAS BLIND TO SEE IS STATEMENT FOR MAY AND JUNE AND HE CLAIMS HE CAN SEE JUST APRIL CLOSING BALANCE WHICH AS AT END OF APRIL HAD JUST £923 AS CLSOING BALANCE... WELL WE STILL HAVE THE BANK STATEMENT MY HUSBAND APPLIED WITH COS THE SAME OFFICER RETURN THEM.

OFFICER SAW HIS PERSONAL BANK STATEMENT WHICH CLOSING BALANCE AS ON 23-07-12 WAS JUST £333.17. HE BASED HIS DECISION ON THIS AS HE DIDNT SEE THE OTHER BANK STATEMENT. I DONT KNOW WHY THE OFFICER DIDNT CHECK CAREFULLY BEFORE MAKING HIS DECISION.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE I HAD BOLDLY INDICATED IN MY INVITATION LETTER THAT I WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMDATE HIM THROUGHOUT THE DURATON OF HIS STAY AND I EVEN ATTACHED MY RENT AGREEMENT. SO I DONT KNOW WHY VISA OFFICER CLAIMS HE CAN'T ACCOMODATE HIMSELF. HE SEEM TO IGNORE DOCUMENTS AND DIDNT GO TRHOUGH THEM AT ALL.

MY QUESTIONS:
WHAT DO WE DO NEXT BECAUSE THIS DECISION WAS MADE ON THE 31ST OF AUGUST 2012 AND WE HAVE GOT JUST 28DAYS TO SEND IN THE APPEAL.

WE WANT TO DO THE WRITTEN APPEAL BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT IT. IM IN UK AND HE IS IN GHANA.

I KNOW WE CAN EITHER SEND IT IN TO THE TRIBUNAL IN UK OR TO THE EMBASSY IN GHANA, BUT WHICH IS THE QUICKEST AND DO WE NEED TO GET A LAWYER IN GHANA OR IN THE UK. IM SO CONFUSED RIGHT NOW AND I NEED PEOPLE WHO KNOW TO PLEASE ADVISE US ON THE PROCESS TO GO ABOUT IT.

Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by adelejane: 12:11pm On Sep 02, 2012
hi justwise and everyone in the house...i need urgent advise and opinion on this issus....note im a ghanaian
i invited my hushand to vist me in the uk, and he was refused....the decision states:

the decision:
you state that you will finance your intended travel to the uk and have submitted 2 bankstatements in support of this. i note that the barclays bank statement you have submitted is in your company name, and has a closing balance of ghs2771.70 (£923.90 based on £1= ghs3.00). you have also submitted a personal zenith bank statement that shows a closing balance as on 23-7-2012 of ghs999.61 (£333.17).you business account shows a closing balance as on 27-04-12, as this was over 2months prior to your application, i cannot be satisfied that it shows the most recent state of your business finances. i'm therefore unable to be satisfied that there are sufficient funds in this account to cover your flight. regarding your personal account, with a return ticket to the uk csting on average £800.00 (ghs 2400.00) there are insufficient funds to cover the cost of the flight. therefore i am not satisfied that you can support and accomodate yourself and also meet the cost of onward travel from the uk
given the above, i am not satisfied that you are genuinely seeking entry to the uk as a visitor for lesss than 6monts who intened to leave the uk ot that can suppot and accomodate yourself and meet the cost of onward travel from the uk as required by paragraph 41(i) (ii) (vi) and (vii) of hc395.
i have therefore refused your appliation because iam not satisfied on the balance of probabilities, that you meet ll of the requirements of the relelvant paragraph of the unitedkingdom immigration rules.

please justwise and all points to note:

he has been given a right to appeal against this deision under section 82(1) of nationality, immigraion and asylum act 2002.

he submitted a 3months bank statement of his barclay bank account which is his business account starting from 1st april 2012 and ends in june 29 2012 with closing balance of over £3600... this was just weeks prior to application and officer claims he only saw statement of 2months prior to aplication....application was 27th of july 2012.

from what the visa officer has written he claims he only saw an april statement that shows a closing balance on 27-04-2012 meaning he failed to go through my husbands company bank statement carefully and he claims the company bank statement my husband sumitted was over 2months prior to my his visa application so he is not satisfied it shows my husbands most recent state of business finance and he is not satified there are sufficient funds in the business account to cover cost of his flight ( note 3months statement was submitted ending june 2012).

also note my husbands business account runs and operates very well because money goes in and out as he runs his business. i don't know how the officer was blind to see is statement for may and june and he claims he can see just april closing balance which as at end of april had just £923 as clsoing balance... well we still have the bank statement my husband applied with cos the same officer return them.

officer saw his personal bank statement which closing balance as on 23-07-12 was just £333.17. he based his decision on this as he didnt see the other bank statement. i dont know why the officer didnt check carefully before making his decision.

please also note i had boldly indicated in my invitation letter that i was going to be able to accomdate him throughout the duraton of his stay and i even attached my rent agreement. so i dont know why visa officer claims he can't accomodate himself. he seem to ignore documents and didnt go trhough them at all.

my questions:
what do we do next because this decision was made on the 31st of august 2012 and we have got just 28days to send in the appeal.

we want to do the written appeal but i don't know how to go about it. im in uk and he is in ghana.

i know we can either send it in to the tribunal in uk or to the embassy in ghana, but which is the quickest and do we need to get a lawyer in ghana or in the uk. im so confused right now and i need people who know to please advise us on the process to go about it.
