@ vicjustice, thank you for your prompt response. How do i know that i have been banned?
They have a policy of withholding the information, but i did explain this in my opening article, here is this section that explains it:

"I decided to add this (my earlier) post since it continues to happen that many people still find themselves in this unfortunate situation, and I thought i should lay emphasis to save people's money.
This informational advice is for country-men and women who continue to bin their thousands of Naira attempting to obtain the UK or the US visas while being unaware that they are under a ban for ten years or for life respectively.
Have you ever been refused a UK visa on the basis of fraudulent, fake, or misleading documents or even serious sensitive misinformation? If so, then apply for a UK visa no more, keep your application fees and try for other countries.
If you committed this act before the 10 years ban came into effect, as long as your finger-prints were taken, you would get the ban on your next visa application: only those who committed it before finger-print era are free from this merciless punishment
It is unfortunate that, except you take measures, you might not be able to find out whether you carry the ten years ban based on fraudulent or misleading documents presentation or, false declaration; this is the unfair method that the UK embassy uses to punish individuals who had attempted to use fake or misleading documents to obtain their visa: they allow them to re-apply unaware of the ban while they extract the visa application fee from the unsuspecting applicants.
If you are unsure of your ban/no-ban status, you are entitled to the rights of knowing your eligibility for the UK visa after refusal and the staff are obliged to let you know it. But however, if you wish to make subsequent application, you can inquire before making your payment: ask them to inform you of your status before paying the visa fee, it is their duty to notify you of it if you ask them even during fresh application.
These said, another way (perhaps the most effective way) that you can find out is your own intuition, you should know whether you were detected presenting any fake, fraudulent or misleading documents or serious sensitive misinformation to support your previous application. And if you were, then, there is no two ways about it, you've just been banned (unaware) for ten good years. Period.

The sad truth is: you did not receive the ban from making subsequent applications, but rather you received the ban from obtaining a UK visa of any category. So, it is up to you to apply a hundred or a thousand times while under a ban, but you will never be given a visa except after the ten years ban expires.
There was this case of a Nigerian visa applicant who was refused a visa for reason of forged documents that he presented in his previous application; after some time, he eventually came clean in his new application, but still he was refused a visa on the basis of the "fraud documents" that he submitted in his previous application. Yet, the cruel visa officer did not advise the mugu applicant that he was under a ban, but the country-man who obviously found no reason for his recent refusal was wise enough to ask about his chance of getting the visa in future application, and then the visa officer was obliged to let him know that he had been under a ban even before his recently denied application was made.
Now, had this countryman known that he was under a ban, he wouldn't have spent his hard-earned money all through that stress and trouble to apply for a visa that will never be issued him?

@vicjustice, i applied for a UK visa last year May,and was denied due to the fact that my friend's signature on the invitation letter looked fake according to them and my uncle that was my sponsor did not indicate how much he wanted to spend on the trip. My dad's business as at that was down but now he is good, can he sponsor me without them denying me? Thank you.
I'm afraid, you have apparently been banned for 10 years for reason of the the alleged fraudulently signed document.
But why did you have to use a questionable invitation letter when it is not even a requirement in the first place?

Dear House,

You can't apply for a visa with a passport that has less than 6 months to expiration.
Politics / Re: 21 Die After PDP Rallies In Gombe, Taraba by Vicjustice: 8:16pm On Jan 23
If one person dies in an activity relating to presidential rally in Europe, it will be seen as a national tragedy with both presidential candidates showing maximum respect by setting a period aside (without campaign in order to honour the victim). I doubt Nigerian rulers are considerate enough to even observe a moment of silence.
12 people died in Paris in a Jihadists attack, and it was a world tragedy as it is still being said on daily news, but over 2.000 black people died in attacks carried out by similar Jihadists on same day as the Paris attack, yet, we barely hear of it: except for the news flash, (not even a breaking news).
As hard as this is to say, i will be honest to say that i am compelled to wonder which has more value between the live of a Black African and that of a European Dog.
I live in Europe, and i know how much respect we have for a Dog, and a man can be thrown in Jail for not feeding his own Dog how much more to have 2000 dogs killed by some barbaric people.

Thanks for your observations, to the best of my knowledge, tourist applicants for France were only required to present a 3 months statement according to their website as at December but i don't know of now.
My bad, you are right, i actually mistook it for the UK visa.

folajoseph:

i read on a Nairaland thread last year that including your tenancy agreement document is also a good way to show ties to Nigeria as long as the rent is a substantial amount and doesn't expire soon.
First of all, i doubt that a tenancy agreement can be officially recognised. This said, i don't see how a rented place of residence can represent a solid tie to Nigeria when even your own house is not a good enough tie.

folajoseph:

As at last year flight reservation was a requirement as well, guess i'm not current at all, thanks for enlightening me.....
Like i told you before, you can not reserve a flight ticket for more than 48 hours without paying for it, so, it is not possible to use such for visa application. I like to reiterate that it is not a requirement to present flight ticket, itinerary does not mean flight ticket, it mean travel plans documentation, so, i warn you to not make the mistake of purchasing a ticket, you will forfeit your money if your visa is refused: There are very rare scenario in which it may be considered necessary to provide flight ticket, and such may be if you are being sent abroad as a treat for an award or a reward etc

The visa officer was not satisfied that after so long time that you really wanted to resume your studies.
You would need to proove why the extra qualification would benefit you, (promotion or more money.)
I like to politely disagree with this claim in its totality, because, i know that there are people who went back to school after 50 years... Education is never too late nor is the time to go back to school prohibited because of delay.
Education is never discouraged no matter the age or the period.

Blackkie:
VicJustice,
Kindly offer me an advice:-
Someone who read Mass Communication, graduated Year 2000 and worked as a Stock Broker for 13 {Investment Analyst and Public Relations Manager, got admission for PGD in a Canadian University but REFUSED Visa - what could be the problem.

Am married, had landed property and SOLID stocks. My sister was my co-sponsor while i was the main sponsor.
I don't think you were refused a visa without being told the reason either by detailed explanation, or by codes, or by references to articles.

Hello House,

Attention Vicjustice, Just wise, Adebyte

As a business owner, please is it advisable to have a salary account and pay yourself salary monthly, and then present your salary account after 6 months as well as business documents for visa purpose?

I currently have a savings account with high credits and also debits. I just want to ascertain if also maintaining a salary account will make the process easier

Thanks so much!
It is not necessary to be such salary earner if the business is solely yours, what is needed is a personal account (different from the business account), a personal account from which expenditures are funded

Oh, another very nice functionality but very very very poor design. Oga, you need at least 3 experts. A front ender, a ui/ux designer and urself (I am guesing you are a backender). This site would have been very very cool if you can take your time and plan every aspect of its design. We are in the user age now. If ur web product doesn't make the cut, people won't use it. And ppl don't use mobile site that often. Weare in the age of mobile apps or u make ur web app responsive.
Very right, Mobile apps is being considered, but not without mobile site and the main sites functioning altogether.

Politics / President Jonathan VS Ret. General Buhari by Vicjustice: 8:46pm On Jan 15
I am from the south and a bonafide Christian, and a respected member of my family with voice. It would be natural for me to be drawn to President Goodluck Jonathan for reason of the things that we probably have in common as southerners. But however, i have carefully examined both Presidential candidates: current President Jonathan versus retired General Buhari, i have weighed the achievements and the potentialities of both men, and on the basis of fairness, i have decided that i will be voting for General Muhammadu Buhari, and i have managed to convinced every member of my family and friends to support the genuine General, who was obviously showing the work of a discipline president before his good goals were hampered by Gen. Babangida's coup.
I am not using this means to campaign on behalf of Ret. General Buhari, but rather, i am declaring my own decision which has now influenced my family to vote for the humble Fulani man to deliver Nigeria from the hand of Mr. Jonathan.
Please, look beyond religion, ethnicity, creed and region, and vote wisely.

Like this post if you support Buhari

Hello People. I have a two year Uk visa but I have not been able to travel with it due to the nature of my new job. If para-venture I am not able to make a trip before its expiry would that have any impact on future renewals.
Definitely not, on the contrary, it would make your renewal easier than that of a first timer

Hello everyone,
This thread is very informative, and really appreciated.
I'm at a juncture where I really need advice on what to do.
I want to apply for a UK Family Visit Visa to visit my blood sister and her husband who are both British citizens.
I had previously applied and got rejected based on the following reasons:
1) The Examiner of my application felt my wanting to travel when my school at the time (in 2012) had accreditation issues, didn't make it believable that I intended to come back even though I still had final exams to take a few months after my planned return.
2) I did not submit my sister's birth certificate and they thought what I submitted wasn't substantial enough to prove that she was my sister.
After that application, my parents and brother applied for a UK Visa to witness the christening of their first grandchild the next year and got granted the visa, though this time a sworn affidavit of my sister's birth certificate was submitted amongst other things.
Now I want to apply so as to witness the christening of my sister's second child, The dilemma I face is I'm 23 and just switched jobs last month, my previous job (which i started 6 months back) had me paid 80k but the new job pays 130k, I have worked there for a month and I have told them i would be taking a 2 week leave late April so as to travel which has been granted in advance.
Although I am not the one sponsoring my trip, My sister is, I thought it is necessary to include my statement which has inflows and outflows for over a year, and i currently have a little under 200k saved in my acc.
I would like to know the following:
1) Is it appropriate to apply this month for the visa so as to give them enough time as i had been previously rejected although I wish to travel April?
2) What documents do I need to provide to improve my chances of been granted the visa?
3) What documents should my sister Provide to back up her sponsorship
4) How do I apply, as I found out it is now online based, and the visa office moved out of the oregun area recently.
I know these are a lot of questions but i would be glad if they are answered.
Thanks in advance
In the application form, there is a question that says
"when did you take up your current employment" or
"How long have you been in your current employment?"
What are you going to answer to these questions?
The answer to this alone is enough to get your refused.

Good morning house,

Is it compulsory that the reference letter from your bank supporting your bank statement also shows your account balance? The one I got does not state my balance. Do I request for another?

Thanks so much
Well, this can be done in various ways and it can carry whatever details that you wish to include. However, I suppose it is reasonable for it to reflect the balance in order to match the bank statement that it refers to.

shithapuns:
thanks vicjustice, sry i still got a few more questions.
qst A. What is the cost to you personally of your trip in GBP(£)? can i assume this shud be the total of QST 1+2+3+4?
*
QST 1. The total amount of money you have for this trip. can i assume this should be say half my savings, or 1/3rd etc like btw 1 to 2 million naira?, or roughly the same as answer to question A above?
*
QST 2. The cost of the aeroplane, boat or train tickets
*
QST 3. The cost of your accommodation
*
QST 4. The costmean, your living expenses
PLS note: am using hotel booking abt 200k for 14days {my wife and i], flight about 320k [2 persons] then about 100k for feeding/sight seeing and trans in uk = about 620k/2100GBP, so i intend to write this value for qst A, and then maybe 1m for qst 1, my salary is a lil above 300k and i have 3m+ in my savings acct
You don't seem to have much issues with finance, the key to these answers is what you analysed on the "note".
So, i'd say just make the budgets according to what you think will be right, but be careful to not make any exaggerated budgets: i know people who got refused because they lavishly budgeted their expenditures in ways that suggested irresponsible extravagance.
