But it's a new company
Am on the process of registering my business name
Do i have outstanding payment to make?
You can't get a visa with such unestablished company that doesn't have a record of tax compliance

gab4u: Goodmorning
Please i want to apply for a uk visa, and i saw on the uk embassy website that
a Tax Return is required for applicant who are self employed
My question is, How do i get a Tax Return?
Call at the revenue office in your area and inquire on how to go about it: but be prepared to clear your outstanding taxes and be up to date

Toyeen91: Hello. Please I applied for a general visitor visa and stated I want to visit my cousin. But I was denied. And the reasons are; I av no personal circumstances to Nigeria even as I had an identification letter from my college. I want to reapply but is it possible for me to state that I am going for tourism, and not state my cousin's name in the new application.
Even though you have applied before with a claim of intention to visit your cousin, there is nothing illegal in changing your mind about the purpose of wanting to visit the UK: it is only up to you to meet the requirements and to satisfy the Visa Officer of your intentions.
But to be honest, i don't think your application will be successful at this time.

Todayisgood: thanks will the home office find out from my previous school or move on with the current application
Todayisgood: will the ukba check my previous educational background and contact my previous school to verify or just treat my current application without not making any reference to the previous thanks
Does your fear or concern mean that you were not saying the whole truth but white-washed facts?
Though, i am giving you the benefit of doubt, but know that it would not make sense to (partially) lie to someone from whom you seek genuine advice.
Well, though i ca no't tell what action or investigative measures that the visa officer would take while dealing with your spouse visa application, but be advised that the embassy may go any length to dig out a person's history or activity records in other to determine the credibility of the applicant: It would be terrible if they found inconsistency or discrepancy in your record because, that would cast doubt to your entire intentions and the credibility of your marriage may be in jeopardy

Todayisgood: I applied for family visit visa and was refused on the grounds of insufficient evidence concerning my studies in ghana. I made an appeal, during the appeal the judge stated he was not convince I will complete my studies and I was only seeking entry to the uk, but my uk sponser told the judge I will finish my university course. I was granted the visa and travelled to the uk to spend 3weeks as I stated in the application, during the visit I meet a lady who is a British we only had few conversations and I returned back to ghana. Months later I travelled back to visit her and returned back home. She came to ghana during the Christmas holidays and we got married we dated for a yr before getting married and currently being married for a yr. I could not complete my university because I changed my course and I have recently graduated my a different university. Will this affect my application for spouse visa in light to the judge decision during my previous application. Will this be false information or what
If this is actually the case and your story is not white-washed or sugar-coated, then i don't see any deception here, but a change of circumstances which is within the rules.
Besides, you would be applying for a spouse visa, and the credibility of your application would be judged on the credibility and the sustainability of your marriage, and if you are able to satisfy the visa officer of this and your wife also meets the requirements, then you stand a chance

Missdodo: Hi, please I need your help here. You guys have done a great job so far and I've tried to read as many pages as I can in order not to ask questions that have already been answered but the information I'm looking for still eludes me. I need to apply with my family. however, I need the best way to go about the fact that my husband owns his own company and of course doesn't pay himself salary, like all other loosely structured businesses in Nigeria. Although he'll be presenting his personal statement, there is no evidence of "salary." My question is, will that be an issue if there is no credit from his company account to his own at regular intervals?

The reason I ask this is that in other embassies (Schenghen, SA), it has never been a problem. he has simply attached his incorporation documents and his own bank statement, but UK peeps can be funny. so please how do we weave out of this one? or do i have nothing to worry about?!

thanks
He doesn't really need to pay himself salaries nor does he really need to have evidence or regular/consistent earning incomes, all he needs is the personal account (from which the travel cost will be funded) and also his business documents/account (as evidence of the source of incomes).
I hope he does have documents of tax compliace

Ehm... To an extent, Ï beg to diagree with that. First of all, you need to find out if the applicant is a first timer...
For a first timer, I'm 99.9% sure that he needs an invitation letter from the friend.
Please correct Me if I'm wrong.
Yes, you're wrong, a first timer can travel to the UK without invitation letter from anyone, all he needs is accommodation details. Not every visa applicant has a relative or an associate in the UK.

No, you don't need to get an invitation letter from them except you are staying in their property or that your primary purpose of travelling to the UK is under their care or responsibility

I need advice on this issue wether marriage in absentia still work and the chances of my getting a settlement visa from here in uk with the marriage in absentia.
Thanks...
@tunde4real2009:
She is British,is only she is afraid that I have over stayed my 2yrs visa that I might not be able to enta back...thanks
You won't have any problem leaving the UK and entering Nigeria, but you would have problems if you get deported, a deportee spouse faces tougher times in making the move to return to the UK than a voluntary returnee.
Ensure that you use this time and opportunity to compile evidence to indicate that your marriage is credible and is sustained, this is important if you don't want to face a lengthy refusal due to ineligibility suspicions.
Now, the difficulties that you might face is the ability to satisfy the authority of the genuineness of your marriage, and if you pass in the test, then nothing would hold you back except your wife does not meet the requirements on her side

Thepolymath:
In other words, you are trying to justify racism? come on, I thought you knew better mr Vic.
...
Taking a word out of context does not reflect true understanding. I didn't justify racism, I simply meant that it is within a legal right to like or dislike anything or anyone according to preference. So, whether you like it or not, you can not forbid people from having racist views, so i'm not bothered if someone hates me because of my race: that is his own problem (as long as he doesn't physically attack me).

Papabi: Please, the issue is I went to UK with a visitors visa valid for a year but I needed to come back to Ghana at most for 180days. I spent all the year visa because of the recruitment process where I finally completed the selection process on July, 2013. The visa was issued on 2nd August,2012 to 2nd August,2013 and I visited Uk, 26th September 2012 and I came back 30th July,2013.
I started the army application as early as October,2012 at Ilford,uk. Later, I had a phone call that the office will be closed so I need to apply at Victoria where I did the application. I was booked for BARB test on January where I passed. I went to the career office at Victoria to let them known my issue of the visa that I wanted to come back home in other not for me to overstayed but I was advised that so far as I have I long and valid visa I can stay and continue with my application. She said, the duration for completion is within 3months to 9 months so I that I will be completing before my visa expires. They processed me through all the stages till I was asked to extend it again.
Ignorantly, i came back and the person who said they could help me said i should use the army to apply Bcus they will ban me for over staying. So Sir, I would like to know, will that affect my application now the british military attaché said he will help? Please, will I be refused for overstaying my 180days whiles in the process?
Thanks a lot.
To be honest, it diesnt look good.
First of all, you breached the terms and cconditions of your tourist visa by staying in the UK beyond the allowable time of a single visit, and then, you took up an academic course without holding a student visa.
The army does not have the authority to influence immigration rules and therefore, you are more than likely to face the full consequences for your actions, which is: consecutive refusals, with a ban.

dsaynt:
Hmm....My employer (a multinational) has already given me an introductory letter, so are you saying its not acceptable? considering that in my DS160 form it shows when I started working with them and that I had worked for another multinational for over 9 years before then (Had gotten UK visa and travelled to the UK several times within that period).
For the residence issue, I have a Lagos state LandUseCharge payment receipt for my flat where I live...that one is in my name (for official stuff I use my parent's address..which is what I used on the form)...is that okay?
Though, your travel history will put you in position of advantage, but each application is treated in its own merit, therefore, the requirements must be fulfilled.
In the application form, there is a section for CURRENT (not previous) employment, and it asks:
"How Long Have You Been In Your Current Employment".
Now, your application is LIKELY to be refused if this field shows that you are a new employee: which means your employment is not yet sustained as it takes 12 months for you to be considered as one in a stable employment because, an employer has the rights to terminate any employment that is less than 12 months without legal consequences, but once an employment is over 12 months, the employee is covered by law from abrupt termination of employment except on the ground of gross misconduct.

hrguru13: Hello house, I would just like to find out how the changes in exchange rate affect the visa application. For instance, if I have quoted my income in pounds using a particular exchange rate as basis of calculation and it then fluctuates after I have submitted online, what would be the effect?
No significant effect because, exchange rates fluctuate and the values (whether positive or negative) are often not much within a short period of time... the value would be calculated by the exchange rate as at the time that your application is considered

kokosheen: I'm applying for a UK student visitor visa for a post graduate flexible learning programme. For the duration of the programme, I plan to travel twice a year and would be staying a total of 7 days per trip.

My question is whether I require the Tuberculosis test for a UK visa. This test is required if one plans to stay for more than 6 months, but I'm not sure if the 6 months student visa means one should go for the test.

House, please assist.
Many people are carriers of the Koch bacteria (which is responsible for tuberculosis) without knowing it until there is outbreak of the dreadful disease: so it is to your personal advantage with no disadvantage in doing the TB test.
Now, if you are applying for a visa that would enable you to stay in the UK for more than 6 months, how does your travel plan exempt you from fulfilling a requirement for the visa category?

I sususpect you are new in Russia, and the excitement of being abroad is still fresh in you. But I advice you to look at the Nigerians before you and learn a lesson.
You may (at this stage) be happy in Russia, they have some of the most beautiful girls in the world, slim sexy blondies who crave for black men, this is the only admirable thing about the country. But when you're done with their girls and you manage to still be alive, when age starts to turn against you, and when you realise the need to look for future, then you will realise how hard it is to get a visa from Russia to the EU.

By the way, the fact that you are denying the existence of skinheads or neo Nazis (and the danger that they rrepresent) places you in the position of no credibility: do you not have a tv set? It's either you're naive or you are just way out of touch in dishonesty.

dsaynt: Dear VicJustice and other House members,
A quick one: How does one establish residency when the person lives in a rented appartment (and utility bills etc are in the name of the landlord). I actually used my parent's address for my Nigerian address cos that is where I receive all my important mails. Also the issue of letter from employers...my employers have written that however I have been with them for 9 months (less than the one year that u said is required)..do I have to now ask my previous employers for a letter too (don't want to try that option..Lol).
Whats your opinion on the above.
Thanks
The answer is simple, you do not meet the requirements for a visa at this stage: you need to have at least, one utility bill running in your name, and also, you need to be in YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYMENT for at least one year.
Travel / Re: Russia Study Visa... Ask Me Any Information About Russia by Vicjustice: 7:10pm On Mar 17
I think you're rather naive about Russia, and you seem to listen (only) to Russian state funded broadcasting networks such as RT.
I'm experienced enough to not judge Russia by my personal perspective only, but also by the developments inside and outside Russia.
I have been to former Soviet countries that have ethnic Russians, I know how the Russian speakers behave in these countries just because they trust their bully Putin to fight for them taking advantages of every little provocation.
Aren't you aware of what happened in Georgia in 2008? Now, it's Crimea in Ukraine.
Countries like Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan etc with Ethnic Russian speakers see their giant neighbour as a big bully: and you're here promoting it as a country to be in?
Like Justwise said, pray that you don't get cornered by Russian skinheads before you learn your lesson to say the truth about that hostile nation (that is if you're lucky to still be alive).

Yes, I have been to Russia, and I have also lived in countries that have ethnic Russuans, and I have been attacked in different ocassions by skinheads, I know how deadly they are, and I know how dangerous it is for a black man to be connered by these fascists.
It would be evil of you to try to white-wash Russia and to lure Nigerians into that country of the shadow of death.
This is a place where only a foolish black man would walk alone at night or in an empty street, a place where a black man has to keep on moving for fear of giving skinheads enough time to organise an attack: some time recently, a black toddler was stabbed with a knife in an attempt to kill her before she grows and become a Russian citizen.
Be honest now, do you feel cocomfortable to wait at a bus-stop for an extended period of time without the urge to change to ananother bus-stop for fear of being spotted by skinheads
