I have a quick question. If I wanna apply for a UK Visa, can my sponsor in Nigeria use a UK statement of account. Someone suggested it is best if it's a Nigerian account. What's your take please?
First of all, you have to be concerned whether you are applying for a student visa and the sponsor is your own parent, legal guardian, sibling or spouse.

good morning,how is ur week going?I believe u are having a wonderful week already.
thank for all your responses it enable prepare ahead and also to know what to do and no to do.
another question.since the payment of my salary in bulk can cause a slight problem came I was thinking of going any it in a different way,i will show prove of evidence in form of a written letter to the company requesting that the pay me at d end of 3month for personal reasons.what do u think any this.
pls once again there is ds pressing matter that I need to get advise on in private,it one of my plans for travelling but it confidential I just need ur advice on it before I move ahead.pls can I get ur mail,u might not want to post it here.pls u can send me a mail.eehidiamen@gmail.com
I will really appreciate it
It would make things easier if you proofread your text before posting it because, i am having a hard time understanding your points.
Well, i am not sure whether it is a good idea to request your company to pay you at the end of 3 months because, i am of the opinion that this could be seen as a maneuvering move to the discredit of the company for allowing such flexibility which is an indication of lack of proper policy and procedures?
As for the "confidential matter", i would have considered your request had you have your photo or anything that identifies you displayed in this site: but i just checked your profile and i can see that you are anonymous (with no photo and no personal data of yours in display) therefore, i would say that whatever you say here is confidential.

@Vicjustice: I applied for Italy tourist visa and got a denial with only no 8 ticked: 8- the information submitted regarding the justification for the purpose and conditions of intended stay was not reliable.

I submitted the following:
1.application form
2. Flight booking
3 hotel reservation
4, aiico health insurance
5. Business CAC reg certificate
6. Tax certificate
7. Wedding certificate
8. 3 kids birth certificate
9.Bank statement with running of 12m and balance of 2,017,000
10. Introductory letter from company secretary.

Whats my next hope...can I appeal?
Concerete and helpful suggestions needed.
You can not appeal a refusal for tourist visa application.
It is hard to advice you since i do not know what the Italian embassy saw with your application, perhaps you can explain how you presented (to them) your reason for applying for a tourist visa.

Good day,believe u had an awesome day.thanks so much for your responses.
I don't understand what u meant by let it go without lying or deception.if I don't mention and they will still ask me about while not mention it from start.if u advice that I shd mention it in my new application while not since the fault wasn't from me.
pls like hw much do I need to have before my account can be considered health
You were suggesting whether to" let go" your previous visa application refusal (without mentioning it in your new application) so, i was asking whether you can "let go" without lying to cover it or use deception. I also warned you that you would be caught and given a lengthy ban: and if you are willing to accept it, admitting your previous failed application does not affect your chance for a visa, but hiding it will not only result in refusal, it would get you banned.
By the way, you might want to look up my previous reply to you, i added updates.

3,in my new application will it be necessary to mention the previous case or I shd forget it and let it go since am using a fresh passport (note: the old one was not an e-passport)
The question is, can you let it go without lying or using deception? If the answer is NO, then don't dare it or you would be banned for the minimum of 10 years in not for life: for your information, they have your name and date of birth, even your parents names.

good day,Vicjustice,i accidentally stumbled upon this post why searching for amt required to apply for a UK visa but am very grateful I found this post cos Ve learnt a lot for the various meaningful contributions.God bless you all.
my story: in 2005,my then boyfriend in the UK intend to sponsor me over for a visit, all required documents was sent by him which were verify ok expect for the bio metric page of his passport which he forgot to ahead,i was placed on Appeal by the VO who gave me 5working days to summit d document.it was started that if my sponsor can scan d documents to the BHC within this period I will get my entrance clearance.
but for reasons best known to him he keeps procrastinating till d deadline was over after a year we broke up.
Fast forward to 2016,now am working earning 156k has gross income monthly,i have a child and doing well.
Now were I need ur advice,i intended travel to UK by may 2017 by the grace of God..

1, the company I work something owe salary for some months but latter pays everything once as arrears can this be classified as cash lodgement.
No, it won't be considered money lodgment provided there is evidence of the source. However, it could raise questions to the reliability of the company that you work for.

ebose09:

2,the bank were I have my salary acct(Heritage)has limited branches in Lagos so most time immediately my salary comes in l withdrawal and deposit into my personal account (gtb) so my salary account as a current bal of less than 300k but I can build my personal account to have like 850k which statement will be advisable to present or can I present both.
In this circumstance, presenting both accounts is fine. But be mindful that your chance of refusal is very high because, Visa Officers do not fancy applicants with the potentiality of being financially broke due to visa application and travel costs: Remember that half of your money will go for (economy class) flight ticket alone.

3,in my new application will it be necessary to mention the previous case or I shd forget it and let it go since am using a fresh passport (note: the old one was not an e-passport)

4,which will be better to use as a co-sponsor:the company I work for or my fiance

We can't finish them. let me ask a question, since we have been eating fish from the sea, have we depleted them? No.
So, what happened to Elephants and Gorilla in Nigerian Rain forest, are they not already extinct?
Fish is different, they go in swan called a School, and a single female can lay a thousand eggs and produce dozens of babies every few days, and the babies reach maturity in just 2 or 3 months time. But not so with a Python, Pythons are solitaire reptiles, and it is common for a female Python to live its entire life without ever meeting a male partner for mating, and even if she mates and produce babies, it takes several years for the babies to reach adulthood. You just can't compare both.
Science/Technology / Re: 30-Year-Old Terrorist Python Killed In Ilorin (Photos) by Vicjustice: 6:56pm On Sep 15
I've never seen a Python before, i need to see one before savage people kill them out of existence. Considering the way that they are being killed and the killers are being rewarded by making it to Nairaland front page, i reckon that soon, these amazing creatures will be extinct in Nigeria.

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??

I'm not sure what you want me to do.
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.

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.

Please my wonderful peeps,

This is the breakdown of my husband budget, we reduce it from 12 to 9 days
pls am about to submit please make corrections, if am wrong

How much do you spend each month on living costs?
65

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

now my confusion is do I add the amount of the accommodation to make it 1168 pounds or leave it at 750 pounds by excluding the cost of the hotel

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?
