Obi192:The solution is not "sending another bank statement that has sufficient amount of money", the issue is whether the bank statement meets the requirements which include your relationship with the sponsor and why he or she is sponsoring you.
Also, it would be hard for a visa officer to consider your child as a tie to return to Nigeria for.

segxi1960:I can not give specific answer about these website, but i do know that any legitimate and verifiable hotel reservation is ok.

dejiconde:Being informed that you are entitled to appeal is not the same thing as being told to appeal.
Well, the main issue that i see here is the sponsor that you presented, it is not an ideal thing to present an "uncle" or anybody who is not your parents, sibling or spouse as a sponsor: this is perhaps what they meant by insufficient documentation, which may mean that the document provided in regard to sponsor is not sufficient as the sponsor is not deemed appropriate.

2Favoured:Though it is not impossible, but it would be hard to get her a visa given that she does not seem to have something to return to Nigeria for, i mean, something to represent her tie to Nigeria.
Now, being an extended family member, her relationship with the invitee is not somewhat that would be considered bona-fide, it would be different if she was her mother, father or sibling.
To be successful in inviting and obtaining a visa for a distant relative who cannot sponsor herself (especially if the person is not considered aged), the invitee must be considered a person of imposing calibre that merits trust and overwhelming capability: but if the invitee is just a regular person, that task may be difficult.
If however you want to go ahead with the visa application, be careful what she says is her reason for the travel, she may be refused if she states explicitly that she is travelling to mind the kids because, that activity may be considered as a job and a potential reason to want to stay illegally in the US.

dejiconde:I don't think the embassy can tell you to appeal, they can only inform you that you are allowed to appeal the decision.
Unfortunately, no one can advice you without knowing the documents that were involved and their deficiencies.

dejiconde:It would be difficult to work on your query based on this information alone since no one really knows what documents that you presented or omit.

HELP101:I like the responses of Saintsquere, Femiratess and Mavinc4u, i think they did justice to your query.
As for whether you would have problem in future visa application after serving the 18 months ban, my answer is, although, there is no official application of any further punishment, but yet, the impact of the ban will always have negative influence on your future visa application as it will always remain in your travel history which you are required to declare whenever you are faced with the question: "Have you ever been refused entry, removed or asked to leave another country?"
Appealing the decision is your best bet: but remember, since the purpose of the visa is now invalid (as the school has cancelled your admission), you should not be appealing against the decision to cancel your visa, but rather appeal the ban.

Not "Giving up" about what? By the way, why would a woman "give up" on a man who can buy her such gift?

slyman187:If you have been refused a visa, then tick YES, and if you have not been refused a visa, then tick NO.
In this case (that you explained ), it wasn't your own application that was refused, so tick "NO".
BUT I WANT TO WARN YOU THAT IF YOUR FINGER PRINTS OR EYE SCAN WERE TAKEN DURING YOUR IMPERSONATION, YOU HAVE TO FORGET ABOUT THE USA FOR LIFE OR KEEP ON USING THE IDENTITY ON YOUR FINGER PRINTS OR EYE SCAN.

50k back then was fifty Kobo, but now, 50k is fifty thousand Naira.

nellytivities:The question would be, "what is your relationship with the man", would you say "relative"?
|Travel / Re: How To Write Invitation Letters by Vicjustice: 9:01am On May 25|
nellytivities:The Visa Officer would expect you to prove your relationship as it is not uncommon for visa officers to hear Nigerians calling anyone a brother, sister, uncle, auntie, cousin, even daddy or mommy, so it is up to you to prove the relationship.
Birth certificate or age declaration document can help, and since he is from your mom's family, then her family name should correspond.

customised87:No, it's not wrong, Visa Officers do not appreciate pregnant women applying for tourist visa, and like I indicated earlier, pregnant women who want to give birth should be applying for their visas on medical grounds.
|Travel / Re: Main Reasons Many Are Refused Visas by Vicjustice: 9:37pm On May 16|
Dhollargurl:Your previous 3 years employment can count as employment history which can enhance your credibility, but your current status is weightier: The reason for requiring a minimum of one year employment is because, they want to be certain that your employment is one that is credible and is sustained as it is difficult to evaluate employments that have not had tax returns.
Visa officers do not appreciate pregnant women applying for tourist visa especially when they know that the intention is to give birth in their country: and it is worse if you are a first-time traveler unless if there are compelling reasons why you think giving birth to your baby in Nigeria is not a safe thing to do.
Most people who travel abroad to give birth are holders of long term multiple entry visas which were issued them before they got pregnant or before their pregnancy became obvious.

customised87:I think the query is OK in this thread because, she wants to know the reason that her visa was refused, and this is what the thread is about.
|Travel / Re: Main Reasons Many Are Refused Visas by Vicjustice: 8:23am On May 16|
Dhollargurl:It is an express ground for visa refusal if you have not stayed for the minimum of 12 months in your current job: although, some visa officers do overrule this clause.
Another possible reason for the refusal is that you seem to be applying for a visa of the wrong category, for example, applying for a tourist visa where-as you intend to travel for medical reason (without revealing it to the visa officer): the visa officer might have observed something that you did not volunteer in your information, for example, pregnancy.

Tell me you're not planning to go and live in Turkey, or are you?
|Travel / Re: Main Reasons Many Are Refused Visas by Vicjustice: 7:56am On May 11|
Schonebaby:The mistake that you don't want to make would be made when you and your husband make the visa application together..
The both of you can apply together if you're going for family trip, but if you're applying for a student visa, then I recommend that you make it more appropriate by formally applying for a student visa alone: you don't want to give the visa officer the impression that you're migrating, do you?
I'm aware that there are circumstances when it is appropriate for the both of you to apply for the visa together, so I suggest that you first find out whether your situation falls in the circumstances.
As for discrepancy in your surname, that shouldn't be a problem provided you have documents that shows and link the surnames to you: and if you need to explain anything, use affidavit.
|Travel / Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Vicjustice: 8:21am On Apr 29|
Dr9ce:The first one that you filed is about the cost of the mentioned items, while the other question is in regard to the total amount that you have set aside for the entire trip which includes the costs of other miscellaneous items that are not mentioned, and might accumulate during the course of your stay in the country. For example: if you stated that the cost of your...
Flight ticket: N350k
Living costs: N100k
Remember that these fixed amounts do not include the costs of other miscellaneous items like tour bus rides, taxi fares, tickets for events, souvenir shopping, etc: so, that question is intended to make you state the total amount that you have budgeted for the trip to cover every cost both the foreseeable and unforeseeable expenses.
Does this help?

ekpotek:Thanks for pointing that out, i didn't realise it, i actually thought i saw eight hundred Pound Sterling.
Thant means, she is financially capable and worthy of sponsoring her family.
|Travel / Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Vicjustice: 10:20pm On Apr 28|
b1211:The issues will not be about your wife sponsoring the trip as it is allowed for a spouse to be a sponsor, but the ECO could have issue with the total amount in your wife's account (which is N1.4m) because, if she bought tickets for everyone from it, how much would be left to live on?
This said, i recognise that your wife has another £800, plus your N350k, therefore, the whole thing now comes to credibility and merit: and as your wife already holds a visa, and does not pose immigration risk, her baby's visa is almost guaranteed: therefore, i am of the opinion that your own visa would be approved if things are done orderly.
Include the both accounts of your wife and add your own account. Good luck.
