Good morning House,
I was sent a statement Letter from Austrian Embassy that they feel I have insufficient fund in my account and they believe I will not return if I travel. Am give 7 days to reply and tell them otherwise or risk visa denial.I want to know if sending another bank statement that has sufficient money and telling them I have a son here who is still tender and showing the a pic of us will do. Cause am a student and still single but have a child. What are your advice pls.
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.

Hello Vicjustice,

Do you know if the French embassy (VFS) accepts booking from hotel.com for hotel reservations ?.
Tried visa reservation. com but they charging $55 without refund!.
I can not give specific answer about these website, but i do know that any legitimate and verifiable hotel reservation is ok.

Denied: insufficient documentation
Pls kindly advice me on wat doxc to add cu, hv deffered my admission to next yr march.
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.

Good evening house,
Please I need your candid advice on how to package my Aunt's application. My sister wants her to come and help her take care of her kids in US for a period of 6 months as our mum is late. She doesn't have an account as she's a petty trader but my sister, a certified Nurse wants to sponsor her trip to the US. Please, what can we do to increase her chances of getting a US visa.
Thanks
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.

Good morning gurus in d house,
I just stumble on this thread today after my italian study visa was denied yesterday base on insufficient documentation and i was told to appeal after 60days thru an italian lawyer which i think is kinda difficult bcuz of my resumption date which is 25th of september. I am confused by wat they meant by insufficient documentation. Please gurus enlighten me on this
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.

Thanks Bro for your help and all those who gave me positive suggestion and i pray you all find favor in times of your NEED.I will go ahead and make the appeal ,hopefully something good comes out GOOD

But just in case they deny the request (God Forbid )and i serve the 1 year and 6 months ban ,would i have problem ,if i apply to any other Europe country?
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.

Hi guys. I have a pressing question which i need opinions on.
I interviewed as beneficiary to a us dv lottery applicant which was refused back in 2012. Must i answer yes to having being denied a visa before? It confuses me because i wasn't the principal applicant then as such, my name was not on the refusal letter. Any input will be appreciated. If it helps, the refusal was on grounds of ineligibility.
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.

Hi Vicjustice,
I have my mum's brother who wants to invite me to the UK. As my uncle we do not have the same surname. Do I need to provide any proof of relationship or we could just go ahead with his deeds and council bill and statement of account as well as the invitation letter?
Also I would like to ask how long it takes to get a UK visa in Nigeria.
Thank you for your kind responses so far. I have been reading.
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.

This info is absolutely wrong. There is no crime in giving birth in the USA and no VO will refuse you for saying you are going to birth. Many people get medical visas everyday, its just for you to prove that you are prepared by getting Doc and hospital correspondences and also prove that you are financially capable.
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.

Ok thank u but I actually did fill in medical reasons and also told her I want to go birth my baby but before I could tell her about my medical condition, she cut me short. However, please how do I explain to them that I've been working as a pharmacist for almost 3 years now and just worked for 6 months at my present job because I just got married and relocated? I really appreciate this
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.

Please, I need help and I'm actually new here. Went for the interview today and was denied but the VO Didn't ask many questions or asked to see my docs. My husband is sponsoring me and she didn't ask how much he earns, also, I have a job (pharmacist) and earn 120k monthly,she only asked of that and how long I've been working with the current place of work which is 6 months cos I just relocated to lagos because of marriage. If only she had asked for financial capacity she would have known I'm more than capable but she didn't sadly. Please, i would like to know what I did wrong as shxe didn't even ask to see any documents at all.Can anyone reply my post pls? Was going to go to Atlanta and the doctor and hospital Bill was like 8k and we budgeted 13k but the VO Didn't even ask if I had made any prior plans. I want to reapply cos edd is July but I really want to know what went wrong so as to avoid it next time. It is actually sad
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.

Schonebaby:
Good morning house. Please I need cogent advice. I have never travelled out before. I just finished my M.Sc. program here in Nigeria and I applied for a 3 month research training scholarship in Spain . I got the scholarship fortunately just a week after I got married. I'm to start the research stay in September and end in November ending. I have a funding of 4,900 dollars. My question now is can I apply with my husband so he can come later and spend 2 weeks (his annual leave ) with me. Note that he will be able to come join October for 2 weeks before going back to his job while I will be resuming September. What are his chances? Do we have to apply for his own separately or can I do it along with mine? Can I use my maiden name passport to do all this and apply for him, bearing in mind that my scholarship is in my maiden name. (we are married legally) Thank you. I don't want to make any mistake when I start processing.
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.

Dr9ce:
Please there is a part of the visa application that asked that 'What money is available to pay for your initial expenses such as accommodation, feeding yourself and any other dependants (if applicable)?
I have already filled in a portion earlier on on travel expenses, accommodation, and living costs. How is this any different so I wnt give a contradictory info. How best do i answer this. Thanks.
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
Accommodation: N150K
Living costs: N100k
Total: N600k

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?

Hi @Vicjustice, @Ekpotek, and every member on here, keep up the good work guys. I need your opinion in regards a situation.

My family and I are planning on visiting the U.K for 2-3weeks holiday. My wife and I have been married for over a year and we have a 9months old baby. We intend getting a 6months U.K visa for myself and our baby as it will be our first time, my wife still has a valid U.K visa. We plan on visiting in 2months but intend to have the visa processed immediately but we have a situation.
I am currently out of job almost a year now but my personal savings account with every now and then debit and credit transactions has about 350k naira balance in it. We intend indicating my wife as a sponsor (her savings account balance is 1.4m or thereabout), her salary account balance is less than 300k naira (she has been at her job for over a year). But she has a UK bank account in her name that she uses in collecting rent every month from her late dad's property that she manages and pays service charge on the flat.. with a balance of about 8000 pounds or thereabout in it. We will be staying at the property while visiting, hence there wont be additional accomodation cost/expenses.

*What would your expert advise/opinion be in regards how to go about the application?
*Should we go ahead and present her to be the sponsor on the form?
*Do we include her savings account with 1.4m in it? Or Her U.K bank account statement with 8000pounds in it? or Both? And also include my own savings account with 350k naira balance in it?
*Do both my application and our baby's application stand a chance of being approved?

Any additional information and advise would be appreciated. Thanks


NB: She has visited the U.K over 10 times in the last 25years+, had her Masters and BSc there. I have never applied to the U.K, my current passport is new, but i have been to South Africa 3times and Swaziland once in the last 5years on my previous (Lost/Stolen) passport.
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.
