Hi Vicj.
Pls does a private company issue study leave with pay? My sponsor has a private company nd wants to issue me a study leave for undergrad degree with pay of 200k. Wud dt hold water?
I'm of the opinion that this questions would not have been raised if this is genuinely the schedule of the company: I'll therefore warn you to be careful to avoid suspicion of deception.
To answer your question, a private company can do what the management wants it to do.

Ethan45:
secondly i bought a land worth 8mil with d help of my sponsor, cn dis tackle economic home tie?
Thanks.
No, the land neither needs your management nor your presence, therefore, it can not be deemed as something representing your tie.

Justwise, sorry to bother you again. I have started my visa application and I'm confused about what is meant by 'place of issue' and 'issuing authority'. It says as it is written in the passport, but on my passport ( which I did in Jos), there is no place written as place of issue whereas Jos itself is under the column for authority.
Thanks
Place of issue: that is the city, town, or district etc where the passport was issued (to you), for example, Benin City.
Authority (or issuing authority) means the code number or ID of the office that issued the passport (to you), for example 454. Refer to the bio-data page of your passport for these info.

If the PP has fake stamps!
Destroy the PP, record the number then burn it.

Then apply and pay for replacement stating that original has been lost or destroyed.
This will cost money, that is the lesson you learn from using an agent!

If you use the PP with fake stamps you face a very long ban, your choice.
To add to the above, even if you don't have the passport number, you can still get a replacement.

Good day everyone . Please help me out last two years I applied for a Visa and the agent told me the only way I can get a visa is to disvirgin my passport . As a novice I agreed ' and he got me a Dubai visa entry and exit . I went to wakanow office and told them the whole truth . They said if I didn't go to Dubal meaning it's fake that I should be careful not to get caught . Should I still use it to apply and see if the Vo will dictate it or better get another one ?
Declare that passport damaged and apply for a new passport before you get banned. Report the syndicate to get arrested, and that will be one less crook off the life-ruining business

Please my wonderful peeps, this is just a quick one,my last visa application, I applied that we wld be staying for 9days so as to make our budget reasonable..but we ended up staying for 3weeks. Though my visa is still valid, dh visa has expired,

1. would the number of days we stayed have any effect. Because am the one sponsoring, he is applying again but we intend travelling together

2.Since am not submitting with him,how wld the budget look like.


This is the breakdown

How much do you spend each month on living costs?
65

How much of your total monthly income is given to your family members and other dependants?
0

What is the cost to you personally of your trip in GBP(£)? 0

The total amount of money you have for this trip
750



The cost of the aeroplane, boat or train tickets
600

The cost of your accommodation- 0 becos my own reservation is for 2 persons but am not applying

The cost of your living expenses - 150

Who is paying for this trip- My Wife

How much will they be paying towards your trip? - 750

Please may inputs so that I won't go wrong

Cc:Vicjustice,justwise Askari,frontpagelawyer..pls all the gurus make inputs


God bless you.


Change of circumstances can make a person stay longer or shorter than the number of days that is specified in the application form, so there won't be any issue provided you did not stay beyond the duration of stay.
It is more than likely that you will not be asked about it, but in the case that you are asked, be prepared to have an answer for it. A simple answer like "we eventually stayed longer than expected because we barely had enough time to satisfy our interests".You could be asked to explain what you were doing in the country. These are unlikely scenarios, but it is good to be handy with prepared answers.

I was thinking of submitting a one year statement so they can see the last annual salary, the money that has entered my account within this one year is about 16.5million naira, in my account history I have had huge sum of money like 5mill,2mill, 6mill and so on enter my account, so this 3mill isn't the first huge amount entering my account, I just felt they will look at the history of my account before determining if it's money lodgement or not, my account has a very good financial standing, the history is very good, so right now I'm just confused cos I don't know if they will still term it as money lodgement after seeing how good the history of my account has been for the past one year, even the 6months history is very good too but I thought of submitting one year so they can see my last annual salary.
It is not a bad idea if you decided to make a point by tendering a 12 months bank statement, that is allowed: ensure that you are able to justify the multiple lodgement.

Good morning, My question goes to justwise,vicjustice,worry359,Askari01 and ALL the gurus in the house... I just transferred 3million naira from my company acct to my savings acct for the trip I'm planning to the uk with my wife, I'm about to book for an appointment tomorrow, please how do I explain to the Eco that this isn't money lodgement and what evidence can I show? Thanks for your responses.

You asked how you can explain to ECO that it is not money lodgment, but as a matter of fact that action alone is the exact definition of money lodgment.
Well, if the three million Naira that you transfeed does not make the majority of the fund in your bank statements, then it should be fine. But if it makes a significant part of the amount in your account, then I will advise that you cancel your intention until after 6 months when you must have built up transactions upon the N3000000 so you can produce the statement that will not show the origin of the three million naira

That should do.
Let me use this opportunity to explain the issue regarding student visa application and home ties: now, unlike tourist visa application that strongly demands applicants to demonstrate convincing ties, students are expected to demonstrate why they chose the course, why the school, what their sponsor will gain from their education and what they intend to do after their studies.

hello Vicjustice
I'm currently undergoing my youth service, and intend applying for a Master's degree in Canada mid next year precisely, but my fear is, with the way the dollar and been maltreating the naira for months eh.
my question is how do I show hone ties? cause my dad has 2 houses in portharcout (estimated 90million naira) and a residential house in Lagos (estimated 10 million) , and he and my brother who is a UK citizen are ganna sponsor the entire program! does that shows strong home tie?
and what else do Canada VO look at when applying for VISA?
Land properties do not often represent home tie since they do not really need managerial operation, however, the magnitude of the assets may be considered. By the way, would you be able to convince the visa officer of how these properties represent your own ties?

I and my children bear my husband middle name as our surname and not his own surname... Plz will the name affect us at the embassy? NOTE: my husband middle name is on his passport ooo
It is not a requirement that a woman must bear her husband's surname, the visa officer will primarily be concerned in the names on your Marriage Certificate
The surname on your kids document will not affect you mainly because the kids are not traveling with you, and if they would be travelling with you, then you may need additional documents to prove that they are indeed your children.

I want to reapply, can I maintain d same amount and credit my account or reduce d cost to me personally..... Your response please urgently
Crediting your account will be deemed money lodgment which is an expressed reason for visa refusal.
Unless your financial circumstance has improved, you will be wasting your money if you reapplied.

I don't want them thinking I'm running because I'm clearly not.

I really do appreciate this thread.
Speaking about ties, I was at the US Consulate in February, the consular asked me 5 qsts which I know I answered perfectly well.

1. Why am I going to the US?
And: A wedding
2. What's the relationship with d person am going to see?
Ans : Brother
3. Do I have any travelling experience?
And: Yes, South Africa, France, UAE
4. Am I married?
And: Yes
5. Do I have kids?
And: No

I was surprised after this he told me he was sorry he couldn't grant me a visa to his country and I asked him why would he do such a thing he said I wasnt able to demonstrate a tie with my country.

What was wrong there please?
Well, except you are a very wealthy person or you have a very serious commitment in Nigeria, the purpose for which you want to go to the US would be deemed trivial and that can result in visa refusal.
Please, understand that family commitment is not as weighty as occupational commitment.

Poland may be cheaper regarding house rent and (some) utility bills, but i tell you, shopping is not at all cheap: even food and clothes shopping are not cheap, in many cases, they are even more expensive than in western Europe. And to make things more negative, you can't really find a normal job in Poland, and even if you manage to find one, the wages are discouraging.
Unless you have financial means (from elsewhere) to maintain yourself otherwise, i wouldn't encourage you to go to Poland if you are hoping to sustain yourself by working while being a student.

Thanks Vicjustice, justwise, cozybunch, you guys really have done justice to issues, frankly will a loan disbursement by my bank amount to money lodgement, as i have some projects and contributions that take a chunk of my salary. My salary is #250k
I'm also into a monthly esusu which comes to #900k per contributor, can i attach that as well, but it will be paid by the different contributors once it is my turn
my contribution leaves my account monthly and its multiple on my turn
Your salary is not bad, but explaing all these undocumented contributions and loan disbursement is not what a visa officer wants to hear.
Do not complicate things: with your genuine salary of N250k per month, just build up a reasonable sum that doesn't need explanation and apply for the visa in due time.

Good day,

Am a bonfide student in one university in Ireland, have paid school fees in full, lodged my living expenses in bank for the one year programme, secured a permanent accommodation and commenced lectures. I travelled to Uk from Ireland to pick up some things, was only asked for ID card and I presented such and was granted entry to UK. In Uk I encountered immigration and was asked to return to Nigeria and not Dublin because I didn't possess lawful document to enter. (made every effort for Dublin transit but was impossible as I was granted single entry which I have used when I entered Dublin). Came back to Nigeria and reapplied for entry visa with letters from school,my landlord and other documentations. The application came out refused with right of appeal because of IH-immigration history. Last year Uk restricted me (termed - deception) from making application of such category (except in other categories) for certain period because of Innocent mistake I made in UKBA application form. Despite the restriction from Uk I came clean with Dublin, told the whole story and they granted me student visa.

In your legal and expertise opinion, the appeal will be in written form, how may I address this Immigration History for a fair chance of the earlier decision reversal? Are you able to recommend an immigration lawyer or one knowledgeable to help me, I need one please.

Thank you and God bless. Keep up the good work.

While the border between the UK and the Republic Of Ireland may seem open to everyone, the onus is on the traveler to ensure he is eligible to cross it: therefore, whoever crosses the border illegitimately may be punished even with a ban.
To be honest, i'm surprised that you were still given an Irish visa despite the UK ban, surprised because, the UK and Ireland shares same immigration database.
As for appealing the ban, I doubt it will be successful because, by your own admission, you made a representation which they deemed deception: however, if you want to proceed with contesting the decision, then you may search for a lawyer on Google. Remember not to pay any substantial amount of money (online) until you meet the lawyer in person and discuss the issues and enquire to know your chance of success.

Thank you Victjusice, i actually don't want to invite him for now for personal reason and he's aware about my reason. However, can he still use paid hotel during his stay? But my fear is they will see it on his application form that he claim he know someone in Ireland and our surname will definitely match. Even if he say he did not know anyone in Ireland, they may search the surname and will definitely bring out my surname to match his. Not sure if he can use hotel and at the same time claim he know someone here, but won't they say why can't he stay with the person he claim he know?

Thank you.
In my previous reply, i went further to explain the scenarios, even answering this (follow-up) question in advance.
Well, if you are not inviting him, then, he can not officially state that he is staying with you.
Now, the fact that he has a relative in Ireland does not mean that he must stay with the relative: it is allowed for him to stay in a hotel or any where else. If you care so much about him staying in your property, then, let him stay unofficially.

Hello Vicjustice,

Is it possible to write a letter of accommodation for my biological when i am not inviting him. He just renewed his South Africa visa and wish to visit me in Ireland and then head to South Africa and back to lagos. He's working full time and has enough money to sponsor himself, but i and him concluded he shouldn't use hotel reservation because there is an option in the online application form where he will be asked if he know anyone here and there is no reason why he should lie by saying no, so he need to say yes, which is me, but i i'm not inviting him because i am not in a position to sponsor him. I am not working at the moment, but is it okay for me to offer him only accommodation letter with copy of my residency?
You have to invite him for him to stay in your property (whether rented or owned), he would be refused without invitation as it not logical for him to stay in your property without invitation.
Note that invitation does not mean that you have to be financially responsible for him, it just means that you are consenting to accountability for (his) coming into the country: it is allowed to invite a person without letting him stay in your property, but it is illogical to let a person stay in your property without invitation: he would be refused.

In the instance that I gave, the "Retirement Savings Account" will not add any "strength" to your application because, saving N1000 monthly will amount to N12000 in a year, so, that would hold no water.

Absolutely no, the school can not influence your visa application nor do they interfere with diplomatic issues.

Also in your own thought, which embassy is better in granting visas? Abuja or Lagos?
Just like asking which is heavier between 1kg of water and 1kg of sand, or which is faster between the front and rear wheel of a car.

Can reapply immediately or do i have to wait for some weeks or months. My session will be starting by August.

You can reapply any time, but it's not recommended if the reason for previous refusal is related to finance.
