Hello Justwise, Vicjustice and everyone else.

I'll be travelling to the UK for the 1st time in a couple of days. On my visa application form, I booked a hotel. But a family friend has asked me to stay with them so as to save me the cost of staying in a hotel. Will be this an issue at the POE when I fill in her address in my landing card?

Thanks in advance.
This would be an issue if they found out that you have changed your place of stay: and if you lied about it, you would be barred from the UK for ages.
I'd advice you to revert to the status quo and avoid something that may raise questions or you would be returned.

@justwise and Vicjustice Pls help this is my 2nd time of posting this, I wanna visit the Uk for
snr bro graduation ceremony, and I need some enquires
from you, I have a sponsor from naija here, which also
serve as my guardian, but I'm a student, I passed out 3yrs
ago with OND, my guardian has the financial capacity to
sponsor me frm nigeria here, and he's also a dual
nationale, I. e, British and a Nigerian, and he also have a
registered business here. And I have been working under
my guardian since I graduated, I don't have payslip, he pay
by hand, please I need more enquires, what are the docs to
hold while going to the embassy and what else do I need
to know. Thanks in advance.
I suppose you're older than 16, therefore, a guardian is out of the question.
if you're traveling for the purpose of studying, then only your parents or your siblings or spouse may be accepted as your sponsor.
Now, if you intend to travel for leisure (ie visit), then, you're expected to meet the requirements which include self sustainability, documented occupation and evidence of earnings: yet, these are things that you lack.
You are just not eligible for a UK visa.

Hi Everyone,

I was refused family visit visa early May (my first ever uk visa application) because of the following reasons:

1. The ECO did not believe that my relationship with my wife is genuine and susbsiting. In addition, he said he didn't believe I'm related to my daughter as claimed. They are both in the UK.

2. Earlier this year, due to a drop in company revenue, salary was paid in half and the balance at a later date. So, the ECO captilised on this and said my job didn't qualify as home tie. Although I was the architect of my own downfall. I stated the salary thing in my cover letter! Unbelievable. I thought I was being sincere.

I now want to reapply again to visit my wife and daughter. I earn 227k after tax by the way and I will be having like 900k as closing balance.

I will be addressing the refusal points with:

1. I have asked my wife to send our marriage certificate and our daughters birth certificate. I will also add her flight tickets, pictures and chat messages as proof of relationship. This is visit visa o.
2. Things have since normalised at the office and salary is now paid in full.

Here is my conern. My last application was refused under 4.2(a). I looked it up on the internet and what I found is lack of home ties. I don't have any landed property. I only have dependants, my parents and younger sister. The people that are supposed to be my major home ties are the ones I'm going to visit.

Please, vicjustice, justwise and co, what else can I add to my application to make it more convincing?

I suspect you did not present your marriage certificate as well as your kids birth certificates to substantiate your relationships.
Land properties that do not require your managerial attention would not be considered a satisfactory home ties.
Your best ties are supposed to be your job and occupations: and a workplace that pays you N227k should have represented your tie to Nigeria: work on your job tie.

Hello justwise , I applied for a uk visit visa and put travel date to be 6 weeks from date of application, which is less than 3 months stipulates of the uk.gov rules. Kindly advise on the effect of this error on my chances of getting a visa. This error was predicated on the fact that I was not privy to this 3 months rule until I had completed and submited the application and was thereafter redirected to the TLS site where I discovered the error, besides that all other aspects are fine. Your candid advise pls
This is a query from an anxious mind and i do not want to add anxiety or to give false hope: since you have already made the application, i'll suggest you wait for the outcome since nothing can impact the application.

Worry Man, longtime! How you dey? I am renewing my UK visa o but from Saudi!

I used my 6months visa for medical conference to UK back in 2014, without breaking any law.

Trust me, I have all the necessary documents now to apply for visa but my fear is same as the poster above (my planned travel date is September 9th for same medical conference and my visa application date is on Sunday 21st august).

Any ways the reason for delay is because in Saudi, passports for foreign doctors are usually held by Hospital admin till few weeks to vacation! It is well known by everyone. Do I need to add that in my cover letter?? Is it necessary?

BTW, I plan using Visa priority service which usually takes 5days here sha!! Whats your take on that?

NOTE: I have travelled to South Africa, UK, Brazil, Nepal (all for Medical Conferences, with proof certificates)


@justwise @vicjustice how ona reason am??

Yall helped me for the 6months visa then if you remember, please need Yall professional advice.... grin
Well, any information that you think would help is fine.
But na wah for these Arab countries, everything about them is an abuse on human rights, even passports are held by employers to prevent employees from quitting at will. What a totalitarian society: ever preferring dictatorship to democracy.

Well, although you did not state the answers that you gave to these very important questions however, I believe that your answers were not satisfying- for example your kind of job and how much you make, and your ties to Nigeria.

vicjustice... Good day boss. I need you guz advise please. I have a fiance who is USA citizen and we are both planning to get marry soon. She wanted to invited me to USA but we are both confused on which way to go about it cus we have little knowledge about this stuff. That was why I came here if any one can enlighten me on best way to go about the visa stuff.. Weather she should come home and we do the intro and other stuff or invite me over. Meanwhile, she just left nija 4 month ago and won't be chance to come home till next yr due to her work. I will be happy if anyone here can advise and tell me which way we can make this work out. Thank you
As you are not yet married to her, her American citizenship has little or no influence on your visa application. You would have to meet the requirements like any other visa applicant.
She can either send you an invitation letter or you may book a hotel. If you decide to stay in her accommodation, ensure she is not living in a shared property.

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- I filled 0 becos the reservation is for 2 persons but am not applying, though the cost of the accommodation is 368……this is the part that is confusing me

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

Cc,justwise Askari,frontpagelawyer,vicjustice,fakmurphy and any with similar experience..pls all the gurus make inputs


God bless you.
I think i got it now.
Well, you were asked about the amount that you would be spending for the trip, and that include the accommodation cost and the estimated costs of other expenses. So, combine them and give a round figure for example "£1200 Approximately".
By the way, what do you mean by 65 in relation to your monthly living cost?

Hello there @vicjustice. I applied for a France tourist visa sometime in October 2015 but was denied , no 8 was ticked on the piece of paper giving to me on my collection date . February this year I got married to my Danish woman right here in Nigeria at the ikoyi Registery, she just moved to Sweden in June , now she is waiting to get her personal number first then get settled . We are considering she invites me over as my wife for a short visit to Sweden then maybe from there we can apply for my resident permit while visiting not really sure how it works , Is there any chances of me obtaining a visa If we use this method ? Your advice would be highly appreciated thanks
Marriage to an EU citizen is one thing, but proving that your marriage is credible and is sustained is another. If you've only just married and then she moved back to Europe, then, the onus is on you to prove that the marriage is credible and is sustained: you can either prove these by your pre-marital relationship which must involve reasonable physical presence with each other and activities, or (if you don't have convincing pre-marital experiences,) you prove the credibility of your marriage by your current relationship: you need a bit of physical presence with each other as electronic contacts is not sufficient.
Bear in mind that visa delaying is a tactic that Embassies use to try such marriage: the embassies are used to seeing people who got married to Europeans with the expectation of migrating soon after, but when visas were delayed, their European spouses went on with their lives etc.
What would you say about your relationship and correspondences?

8. The information submitted regarding the justification for the purpose and conditions of intended stay was not reliable.
9. Your intention to leave the territory of the member states before the expiration of the visa could not be ascertained.
...these were the reasons my visa was first denied.

Your previous failed applications will definitely be looked into, and the onus is on you to satisfy the visa officer that you are not migrating. The below quote is for you as well:

I do not know the reason of your previous refusals, so, i can't advice. However, the outcome of your student application will have much to do with the opinion of the visa officer, whether s/he suspects that your application is a desperate attempt to migrate or you have a genuine intention. Therefore, while your previous refusals may play a role, the reasons for the refusals would be a significant factor.

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.

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. Give 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.

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
