|Travel / Re: I Need Help From "Justwise" by Vicjustice: 5:01pm On Aug 01|
terrimatix: I am a Nigerian doing my masters in Europe,i was issued a two year B1/B2 American visa last two months to attend a conference and academic fair in California.Unfortunately, i could not attend the conference due to some reasons beyond my control then.If you are lucky enough to meet an inefficient immigration officer who would not look into the purpose of which your visa was issued, you may be allowed in, but once the purpose is looked into, (unless you have a very satisfying explanation that would make it meaningful to use this visa for another purpose as it is unreasonably to apply for another visa while the previous one remains valid) then there is nothing that will stop them from keeping you in the holding room for the next available deportation flight.
Yes, like Justwise advices, you might want to first contact the embassy.

momoyama:You are probably having these perspectives because, (though you may be black) you are neither an African citizen nor have you lived in an African nation: otherwise, you would beg to differ and judge that the treatments that Africans receive from foreign immigration authorities are arguably deserved: not by the fault of the individual, but due to the irresponsibility of his government to make his country a comfortable place.
You were able to boast of being a citizen of a (small but great) country with good standard of living, but most Africans can't boast of same

momoyama:Sorry, i meant to say economy power.
Well, I do understand your points, they are intelligible and they are facts. But there is need to understand that even if Sierra-Leonean passport does not officially require a visa to enter a country like Singapore, yet, there are requirements to satisfy at the port of entry.
It would be naive for just any Sierra-Leonean passport holder to venture a casual trip to Singapore if he doesn't have reasonable amount of money, a reasonable job and a reasonable obligation or tie to return home for.
Visa-free regulation with African passport is not at all the same regulation with European passport.
Logically, the process of applying for a visa is considerably easier than the risk of travelling visa free to a country where you would be subjected to give satisfying answers to all sort of different questions. Understand that black Africans generally pose significant risks to foreign immigration therefore, are subjected to stringent scrutiny at border control: even airliners are not willing to accept an African who does not hold a visa.
It would make more sense to refer you to my recent article regarding the logics behind the so called visa free destinations.
By the way, have you checked to see if there are direct flights to these countries to which Sierra-Leoneans do not need a visa?
These arguments put in place, I insist that Nigeria, Sierra-Leone and all together with other ECOWAS countries are in the same category in respect of international travel.
You might want to refer to this link for more details:

momoyama:Even if Sierra-leone passport are visa free to more countries than Nigerian passport, have you checked the qualities of these countries?
If yes, which of the countries is a country with significance economic power?
Com'on, you're not going to be naming countries like Bangladesh, Haiti Sri-Lanka and East-Timor, are you?

charzyh2:There are 101 issues that I don't think you can correct at this stage, but I will be considerate enough to mention one which is a knockout blow.
You stated that you would be going to the UK for "business" while you are not a business man: yet, you expect a couple that you met in the internet to sponsor your trip.
You are also contemplating on applying for a tourist visa, but you do not seem to be having any meaningful responsibility in Nigeria, and you are entirely banking your hope on the strange couples that you seemingly know nothing about.

momoyama:Dual citizenship is beneficial if you are a citizen of two countries of different advantages: for example, you hold both Nigerian and Australian citizenship. But there is no advantage if you hold dual citizenship of Nigerian and Sierra-leone because, both countries are of same values in regards to international travel.
|Travel / Re: President Jonathan Launches New E-passport by Vicjustice: 6:24pm On Jul 30|
What Nigeria needs is not a passport with 1000 pages, but a good governance that would resolve the hardship in the country and make Nigerians comfortable at home: by this achievement, Nigerian passport (just like Japanese passport) would be welcome into visa waiver programme of many sane countries
|Travel / Re: A Comprehensive List Of The Documents Required For Visas by Vicjustice: 2:42pm On Jul 30|
momoyama:When it comes to international travel matters, being a dual Nigerian/Sierra-leonean citizen can only make as much difference as being a bi-ethnic indigene of Yoruba and Igbo.

charzyh2: Hello,1) If you are going for business, then it is a business visa and if for tourism, then it is tourist visa.
2) The documents that are required of them can be found in the original post.
3) Also, refer to the original post.
4) It would be easier for you to lift an adult elephant than to get a visa in your given circumstances.

drstone1:If I elaborate on the true meaning of Taqqiyah, they will delete the post and my labour will be in vain.
It is unfortunate that over 90% of the answers that you would get on Google are white-washed answers (from them) that are designed to sugar-coat the true meaning in order to make it acceptable to westerners.
Well, Taqqiyah or Taqiya, or Taqqiya, or Takiyah etc means DECEPTION, FAKING , MISLEADING, CONCEALING, or LYING to unbelievers in order to hide the negatives of the religion.

Freelancer007:You have not read that Book, but I have read it and know the commands (in it) to fight and kill the infidels.
it also commands the faithful to kill the "people of the book" (Jews and Christians) until they pay the jizya
You are either naive of the book or you are applying taqqiyah (sacred deception).

An own business is a very good tie, but a business that is behind in taxation is short of the requirement and can be a good reason for failure.
As for your wedding pictures, this is not necessary for a person whose spouse is physically present, it is only appropriate for those who need to prove the genuineness of their relationship.

Castalia: MOD et all (justwise, Vicjustice, 3sh4life and all the gurusYour wife's low income is not the problem here, there are other things that pose threats to your applications than her salary.
Your monthly income of N600k is impressive, but, you will have to prove the legitimacy of the sources of income, and as you have admitted that your company's is behind time in tax compliance, that is a problem.
You said you have nothing much to do or see in the UK except to spend 7 days with your brother? That too pose a significant risk as your travel would be seen as purposeless visit; it is wise to plan (or at least, have something to say about) how you intend to spend your days in the uk: activity plans are necessary.

peace009: PLS as the chairman/managing director of a limited company , does my personal account have to show my monthly salary and also have a personal tax clearance apart from company tax clearance? PLS PLS PLS ... I NEED SOMEONE TO HELP ME OUT.Since you're the owner of the company which complies with tax regulation, you are not obliged to pay tax from any money that you pay yourself, you are a tax compliant businessman and you get your income from your taxed business, therefore, your business tax should cover you.

nickson03: No my wife does not have another child with another man is just me and my wife and my three children. Like i said is just me and my first son which is currently at thesame address with me in uk and my wife is going to aply for our twins baby which is just 6months. Would the accomodation be count as overcrownding if the mother of my twins aply for the visa. And do i need to suport the application with bank statement know that the twins are autmatic british citizen because i am british myself.I thought your aparrtment would be over crowded by one person because, I thought you meant that your wife has an additional child to the children. Now, I think the appartment is suitable

nickson03: Pls i need your advice. I am a british and my son is a british we both live at thesame address. My just had a twins babies and i been to nigeria to aply for the babies british passport which is currently still process by Her majest passport office in uk. Now my wife is coming to visit me and her son. And she need to come with the twins and i subjected that she aply for the twins uk visa since it is taking time for the passport to by out. My question is me and my currently live in two bedroom apartment and the tenancy agreementIf I understand your English, your wife (apart from the twins) has another son with a different man, right?
And you want her and the child with the twins to apply for visit visas, they would be staying in the rented apartment that is designed for 3 occupants.
First of all, how old is the other child? well, the child is expected to have his own room, and the 6 months old twins are supposed to stay in the same room with their mother: and as there is another person occupying one other room in the apartment, the adequacy of your appqrtment is now under question, so, that might be a problem amongst other problems

Buy the way, if the price of the application fee is something that bothers you, then how serious are you about the UK visa?
