@ Vicjustice,

Please do I need a tax certificate if I'm applying for a B1/B2 visa as an employee of a company and not as a business owner. Your reply will be very much appreciated. Thanks
You do not need a tax certificate as an employee, your pay-slips or other payment records are supposed to show tax compliance except you are working for a petty company.

VicJustice nd worry357 nd others, please give a brother advice.

I was denied 2012 for a visa lottery during the interview with my girl friend, I was given a sheet of paper and MISREPRESENTATION was ticked
under section 212(a)(6)ci.

My issue now is that,,i got married with a new lady 2013 with kid and my wife is in Canada schooling and I want to visit her. I read about the misrepresentation that stated that its a life ban from entering the USA. [b]Hope that will not affect my visiting to Canada to see my wife?. [/b]please house member,,,your advice please
It is more than likely that the reason for your US visa application refusal will affect your Canadian visa application: it is obvious that a person who applied for a visa using misrepresentation is not going to leave the country...
During the Canadian visa application, you will be asked whether you have ever been refused a visa to any other country before, and if your answer is "YES", you would have to explain what happened; and if you give a false answer or misleading information, you face additional ban from Canada.
That is not to say that you can never get a visa for Canada of one for any other country, but you need a serious change in your circumstances to convince visa officers that you indeed deserve a visa. But as for the USA, just forget it until the Nigerian passport becomes visa-free or you are able to get a passport that doesn't need a visa to enter the USA

@vicjustice, justwise and the rest of the gurus. My friend and I have decided to forego reapplying for a UK visa and just apply for a Schengen visa via the German embassy. Would our 2 refusals to the UK affect our chances from getting a Schengen visa? My conditions when applying are the following (1) 6 months Salary account with a closing balance of 1M (2) 5 month savings account with a closing balance of another 1M (3) good travel history (been to several countries i.e. Maldives, Morroco, UAE, Thailand) (4) main reason to go is to attend the Oktoberfest in Munich (5) will obtain salary certificate, approved leave form and other documents from employer. Do you think we stand a good chance to be given a Schengen visa albeit the UK refusals? Thanks in advance!
Remarkably, when guys like you ask this sort of question, all you seemingly want to hear is a positive encouragement rather than to hear the real thing. And when i say my opinion which might not be what you want to hear, then the matter is converted into a religious issue with response like "i reject that in Je**s name", or "I'll leave it to G*d", etc.
This said, i still like to respond by saying that although, the double refusals are definitely going to make the Germans more cautious of you and probably help the embassy to reach an easy decision to refuse your application, but you can very well get the visa if your apllication is well presented.
I warn you: if you know that you are not fully ready, or that the reasons for the UK refusals have not been resolved, then you stand a very high risk of a Schengen refusal, and that will look bad whenever you tried for any other country like the US etc

He can apply under your sponsorship without providing his own bank statement, and his application will be decided on the basis of your own merit: meaning,, you capability will be considered as well as the credibility that he will observe the conditions of the visa.

Dear Vicjustice and other gurus,I need ur advice on this pressing issue.
I intend visiting the US for 2-3 weeks but am worried about because of the financial docs that I have.
My business is registered with CAC but not yet incoporated but the biz current account enjoys a huge flow of funds.Specifically the balance has not been less than 3M for months now and I also have a savings acct of 280k.
My questions is,will the VO consider the only the certificate of biz registration only financially capable?Should I also include my land C of O to reinforce my financial capacity?I m asking because most applicants do apply with the cert of incorporation and other relevant CAC forms. Though before applying for visa,the account may reach over 4M.
I also don't have tax clearance certificate and I am the only signatory to the account.
Pls advise
You would be seen as a corrupt business man who evade taxes and therefore, ineligible for a visa.
By the way, you can't apply for a visit visa with this kind of account, you need a personal account to do that.

Great tips. As much as I want to agree with you. I'd like to say that it really does not apply. Several people have budgeted over 5 times what they earn and still get it. I feel like it might have a little more to do with the officers state of mind cos it's so freaking ridiculous what these guys say to refuse you. How can you be asking me for assets when I havent even worked for over two years. How can you be asking for home tie when I have a job and they know how hard it is to lay your hands on a job in Nigeria. How can they be questioning how much I want to spend when my account balance clearly shows that I can afford it. Everybody knows that you can get good things when you travel. There is really no cast in stone method when it comes to refusal. Just be try your best to convince them and you shall get your visa. it is very unjust and I feel like there should be some form of government intervention. You can't keep giving absurd reasons why Nigerians shouldn't travel because you want to collect visa money from us. It's really unfair. There should be a standard. Enough said
This is explained here: "...where as, a person who earns N120k monthly with an account balance of N1.5M can easily get the visa if the application is reasonably presented".

I guess this would go a long way in helping people plan well ahead .... nice one


But, sincerely, this googling of someone's name idea isn't a bad one though; but basing their issuance judgement on it is not cool cos in most cases, the stories that shows up may not be affliated to the person in question .... Pls clarify if i am missing something out ***my opinion though ****
Unlike most names that are associated with the west, (names like George O'neil or John Scott) that feature several results when run on Google, African names, like Osahon Igiebor or Agoma Ogheneovo or even mixed names like Peter Ogbeha seldom produce several results when Google-searched, so, it is easy to distinguish the relevant result. Besides, even if your name is commonly used enough to produce several results, it is still easy to tell the articles that are relevant from the title of it.
Be careful when giving misinformation, you might get caught if your facebook (or other social networking sites) produce profiles that are contradicting.

Hi Justwise and Vicjustice. I have just been refused a visa on the following:

Please guide me as to how to reapply. I want to reapply on Thursday and book my appointment for Friday.
For the joint account. I have runned that account since 2011. The same account I used for my tier 4 visa application in 2011 and it has been functional since then. I put my savings in that account because it is not easily accessible and I find that I spend less on that account. I submitted two account statements. One that had my salary with a balance of 99,000 and the this joint account. Am I not allowed to hold my savings anywhere I please? They also spoke on assets and no dependant, can I show them my car documents and my newly renewed tenancy agreement. If that can convince them that I ain't going nowhere. It's quite frustrating. Pls guide me through my next application pls

Travel / More Reasons Why Visa Applications Are Refused by Vicjustice: 3:54pm On May 16
Be aware that the number one priority of Visa Officers is the Homeland Security, therefore, the first resort of the officers is to google-search every applicant's name and to see what comes up.

A lot of people have never google-searched their own names and therefore, are not aware that in this age of internet social networking, a simple entering of one's name and surname into a search engine will produce numerous results whether related or unrelated to the very person.

You might not yet be aware of what comes out of your name when it is google searched: most of the featured results are not of your own voluntary information.

Take a moment after reading this article and Google-search your own name and surname, and you may be surprised to see what comes up.

I know a Nigerian someone who entered Ireland through the UK to seek political asylum, his claimed was foiled by google search results that did not favour his pleaded case and as a result, he was asked to leave Ireland: the point is, this is a regular guy (who fits the profile of a nobody) who never thought that anything about him could make it to google search.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Visa Officers are trained to look for a single reason why a visa should be refused rather than to consider it for 99 other reasons. Therefore, for those who hold the opinion that their visa applications had been unjustifiably refused for what they consider "silly" reasons such as the "three times monthly salary" issue etc.

It is true that budgeting an amount of money that is "three times your monthly income" is actually not a good reason to refuse a visa application, yet this issue usually comes into consideration when a visa applicant does not have impressive amount of money as balance. For example, if a person earns N200k monthly, and he budgets N620k for the intended trip while he presents a bank statement with a balance of N650k, he stands a very high chance to be refused for reason of the vast impact that the amount of money will have on his account as it would take him more than three salaries to recover the amount that he intends to spend for a short trip, where as, a person who earns N120k monthly with an account balance of N1.5M can easily get the visa if the application is reasonably presented.

The formula.
Before applying for a visa, look at how much you earn monthly, consider it against your account balance and compare it to the amount that you intend to spend for the trip.

MickinAbuja:
A lot of people make the mistake of making deposits into their bank accounts prior to visa application; this action is called "Money Lodgement" which is an express ground for visa refusal: Do not naively commit this violation (by depositing lump sums of money into an account which apparently stands in isolation) for presentation purpose.
Such account does not meet the requirement of an acceptable bank statement so, applying for a visa with it will only give you a definite result, REFUSAL.

By Vicjustice

This is not quite true, if a lump sum lodgement in an account is backed up be documentary evidence such as Maturity of Savings Bonds, sale of property, rental agreements - all tis will be taken into consideration, especially in study applications where VO's recognise that in genuine applications parents will have been planning this for a long time and may have had money tied up in Bonds, shares and property and other saving accounts - as long as the 'evidence trail' is visible and plain to see VO's will of course take this into consideration.
It would have been good to understand what you quoted in its context before before judging it.
There is difference between "depositing lump sums of money into an account which apparently stands in isolation for presentation purpose" and the scenario that you explained.
Other people who had read my post understood what i meant by "Money Lodgement" hence none have objected.

Hello Justwise & Vicjustice,

Any particular reason why some visiting visa applications are processed in Sheffield UK and some here in Nigeria? Mine was processed here but a colleague of mine received an email that a decision has been made and that her documents have left Sheffield UK.

Also she had an impromptu interview conducted over Skype and she claimed that others who came to renew went through the interview process as well.

These questions may have been answered previously but i can't seem to find them.

Regards
Among other reasons, the main is because, some applicants are entitled to rights: especially those who are applying as family members of a UK or an EU citizen
