Sorry, general visit visa applicants CANT ask for administrative review. Tx.
Where in my post did i mention that applicants for General visit visa can or can not request administrative review?
You seem to behave as if you are in a knowledge competition with everyone, and your arrogant manners are provocative.

omoba88: @vicjustice kudos to you sir... I need your help with a uk tourist visa application. My inlaw invited me over for his graduation ceremony coming up early october. I'm self employed, married, I'm using my personal savings account for my application and I already stated on my application that I and my wife are expecting out first child and that I intend to spend a week there in the u.k and also shop for a few baby stuffs. I have a company I registered last year november... can I write a cover letter for myself using my company letter head? Do I need to include a proof that I'm expecting a child soon? Do I need anything else from my wife apart from her letter of consent? Someone advised I put her statement of account becausr she works in a bank but she's not my sponsor.... pls help
Of what relevance is your wife's statement of account to this application if she is neither traveling with you nor is she sponsoring the trip or part of it?
What baby stuff are you going to be shopping for in the UK that you can't get in Nigeria?
Judging from the unsatisfying reasons that you want to travel, it is more than likely that your application would result in a refusal as you don't seem to have a satisfying reason to want to go to spend a whole lot of money on an intercontinental trip to the Uk, why not plan a proper visiting or tourism purpose?

Please I have some questions, I would appreciate your contribution a lot.
When a visitor visa is refused to a person. Does the person has the right for administrative review, I'm a bit worried as the visitor visa application is not a tier 1, 2, 4 nor 5 who can get this outright.

If by chance this person got this right for review, will the person be allowed to include new documents to clear up the areas that constitute to the rejection of the visa.

Thirdly, how long can such a person wait before reapplying for a visitor visa after refusal
Administrative review (unlike appeal) is neither given nor made by rights, and unlike appeal in which you have the rights to contest a decision, administrative review is only a REQUEST for reconsideration: with administrative review, you are PLEADING for reconsideration, buI with appeal, you are CHALLENGING a decision based on your rights.
Now, anyone can make this request, but i don't often encourage it especially in respect of tourist visa application rather, I encourage the correction of previous errors and reapplication in due time

honeyoluwatoyin: hi guys, am directing my iss to @justwise and @visjustice and all other gurus.... firstly lemme tell you little about me so you dont get confused. am a trader i visit dubai quarterly, a mother but not married and also presently serving my country...my cousin invited me for her graduation ceremony lastyear nov so I used my dad as my sponsor cos i got all the document a week after i got back from dubai and i didnt have much in my personal account and i had to submit the application before i enter nysc camp in nov lastyear. i submitted.
MY COUSIN BRITISH PASSPORT PAGE
INVITATION LETTER FROM THE SCHOOL ADDRESSED TO MY NAME
INVITATION LETTER FROM MY COUSIN TO ME
2WEEKS HOTEL RESERVATION
MY DADs COMPANY REGISTRATION DOCUMENT which am one of his directors
SPONSORSHIP LETTER FROM MY DAD
MY DADs BANK STATEMENT
REFERENCE LETTER FROM MY DADs BANK
MY STATEMENT OF ACCOUNT to show frequent inflow and outflow
MY CHILD BIRTH CERTIFICATE WIT PICTURES
i stated in the application am an entrepreneurer

IN-SHORT, the ECO refused me saying...... the other directors of my dads company dint give authorization of me using the company's account and that how come i have little or no money in my account as at the time i applied...i felt bad cos it was my first time and my d excuses was so silly..
i dint get my business registered until may this year due to some unknown reasons btw diamond bank and CAC, recently i applied again, made hotel reservation cos i intend going during winter for sales,got a support from my dad duely signed by my sisters cos its a family business.attached my nysc document, i countered reasons for bin refused lastyr. i explained the reason i dint have enough money in my account then and i backed it up wit all invoices since i started travelling til date..... too bad i recieved my packet back yesterday and was refused again on some things i really dont understand.

the ECO SAID
I STATED THAT MY MOTHER WOULD PAY HALF OF THE COST OF THE TRIP AND HAVE PROVIDED HER COMPANY;S ACCOUNT, SAYING THE ACCOUNT REPRESENT BUSINESS FUNDS WHICH SHOULD NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR NOTHING OTHER THAN RUNNING A BUSINESS, THAT HES NOT SATISFY THE FUND WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ME ,AND THAT I SUBMITTED MY PERSONAL AND COMPANY STATEMENT AS EVIDENCE OF MY FUNDS,THAT I STATED I REGISTERED MY BUSINESS MAY 2014, THAT HAVE NOT PROVIDED ANY EVIDENCE OF THE BUSINESS AND HOW MY INCOME IS GENERATED OTHER THAN THE COMPANY REGISTRATION DOCUMENT AND LASTLY THAT I STATED I WISH TO VISIT MY COUSIN BUT HAVE NOT PROVIDED THEIR STATUS, HE SAID HE NOTICED I WAS REFUSED LAST YEAR,THAT I DIDNT MENTION THAT I HAVE FRIEND OF FAMILY IN THE UK AND THAT THIS TIME STATED I WILL VISIT MY COUSIN AND HAVE PROVIDED NO EVIDENCE OF THEM.my right of appeal is limited to the grounds referred to in section 84 (1) (c)

When i saw the refusal note, i was dumbfounded cos i dont know what to say. firstly the 'MOTHER' got me confused, 2ndly i never include in my application this time around am going to see my cousin cos i submitted my hotel reservation to them, her name only reflected under the question if i have friend of family in the uk, and besides all her information was attached to my first application they refused., thirdly,all invoices that bears my name was attached to my business document,
immigration lawyer is already helping me on administrative review.....pls advice
The reasons for your refusals is not "silly", but reasonable.
Ok, your dad owns the company, and you are using the company's bank account statement as evidence of finance: but can you say the benefit that your travel to the UK would be to the company?
Not only did you make the same blunder in your second application, in addition to that, you made a hotel reservation for 2 weeks without having any purpose to be in the UK, nor did you make any indication that you are travelling for leisure or tourism etc.

george31: Dear Moderator, thanks for commiserating with me. I must tell you that you are indeed a rare gem. I admire your humility and professionalism in handling my case. I appreciate your input. I have reconstructed the first two paragraphs of the letter, kindly check for any errors.
I George Onyebuchi Ezenwa with my brother Roland Elochukwu Ezenwa applied for Entry Clearance to the United Kingdom to attend our late brother’s funeral that passed away on the 13th of June 2014 after suffering from a rare kind of cancer. Our application was refused
We think our application was not critically looked into. On this note we write to appeal against that decision. Kindly spend a few moments looking into my underlying facts that may make you reconsider, so we can travel to spend some time with our mother and to visit our brother’s grave. In 2013 we were denied visa to travel to the UK to see him when he was critically ill and recently we were denied again to see his body and to pay him our last respect.
Our mum has been so depressed since the demise of our brother and our father who passed away on the 9th of May 2014 and now, our grandmother who just passed away on the 19th of August 2014
In this time of our bereavement, we need to be with our mother. She has been having nightmares and crying every night. According to her doctors in the UK, she suffers high blood pressure, it’s been really traumatic for her, and she needs us to be by her side to mourn these losses.
But do you really still want to go ahead with this?
Well...

george31: Hello, Kindly be patient to read to the bottom
Here is my well detailed Letter of Reconsideration to The Entry Clearance Manager against my UK visa refusal.
Kindly Advice me further before i send this appeal...
The Entry Clearance Manager,
British Deputy High Commission.
Lagos.
Reference Numbers: Lagos/xxxxxxx and Lagos/xxxxxxx
Dear Sir/Madam,
LETTER OF RECONSIDERATION
I xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with my brother xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx applied for Entry Clearance to the United Kingdom to attend our late brother’s funeral who passed away on the 13th of June 2014 after suffering a rare kind of cancer. In 2013 we were denied the right to travel to the UK to see him when he was critically ill and recently we are denied visa again to see his body and to pay him our last respect.
Our mum has been so depressed since the demise of our brother and our father who passed away on the 9th of May 2014 and now, our grand mother just passed away on the 19th of August 2014
In this time of our bereavement, we need to be with our mother. She has been having nightmares and crying every night. According to her doctors in the uk, she suffers high blood pressure, she needs us to be by side to mourn these losses.
Please find below the explanations in brackets for the reasons of refusal:
The Entry Clearance officer refused our applications majorly on the reasons of been refused the UK Visa when we applied in 2013 as a family member of an EEA national. (We can now boldly say that our circumstances has changed, we are now gainfully employed. We live a more comfortable life and we don’t need the support of our parents)
The ECO doubted the relationship between us and our late brother (that’s heart breaking) The ECO stated that in our previous application we did not name him as our brother when given the chance to list the, ‘EEA national and other family members’. (This is not correct; in our previous application in 2013, we did name him as our brother, he had a permanent residency in the UK, we also mentioned he was critically ill at that time. To proof this, I have provided a copy of that application form. In addition, pictures of family ties while we grew together in Nigeria were provided, also a copy of our brother’s birth certificate which is similar to mine was provided)
The Second reason was we didn’t demonstrate that we are in receipt of our stated salary (that made me feel so disappointed by the decision of the Entry Clearance Officer, It’s stated in my employment letter which I provided that my salary and commission are paid in cash, sometimes my employer owes salary and commission over a period of time. Sometimes they pay me in cash or pay a lump sum of money into my account)
The Third reason, the ECO considered our past circumstance and concluded that we would not be able to afford this trip without a third-party financial support. (I don’t understand what the ECO meant by this, in our application we stated that our mum will be the major sponsor of this trip. I have provided genuine proofs to show that there are enough funds available from our mother and in addition my personal bank statements. More also, I have a better life here in Nigeria, I have two lovely kids in Nigeria which are still under seven years. I don’t intend to remain in the UK)
The Fourth Reason of refusal was similar to the reason above. In the light of this, (We provided the tenancy agreement of my mum’s accommodation in the UK which we will be staying for the period of this short visit)
Please spend a few moments looking at my underlying facts that may make you reconsider. I hope my appeal will be looked at on compassionate grounds. I’m only a phone call away should you require additional documentation which will assist you in reversing the original decision.
(i) Provided a letter from my employer stating the mode of receiving my remunerations.
(ii) Provided a copy of that application form of our previous application in 2013, where we named Henry as our brother, he had a permanent residency in the UK.

Yours Faithfully,
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

First of all, i wish to express my sincere sympathy regarding the tragic incidences, i know how painful it is to suffer a loss how much more multiple losses within such a short period of time. Please, accept my sympathy.
Now, i want you to understand that my response is not an attempt to show superior proficiency in the English language, and that i gave a serious thought to it before i thought it nice to assist you in the little way that i can.
Understand also that everyone makes errors in both written and spoken English, and that even those born in England do make serious blunders as well, therefore, i do not want you to feel embarrassed as this response is by no means intended to make you look bad.
With these explanations given, i want to remind you that such letter (intended for an embassy) is supposed to be a formal one, and therefore, it is very important to make it as close to perfect as possible because, you do not want to give a negative impression that would cause a disdain to your calibre...
Now, as much as i like to advise you that your circumstances do not seem to be suitable for a visa application given that the nature of job that you do and the method of salary/commission payment is highly suspicious and questionable, and therefore, it is utterly unacceptable according to the embassy's rules. But if you insist on your (vain) struggle, well...
I have managed to make some corrections even though i too might be horribly wrong in my supposed amendments:
Please, observe the highlights in Green

Are you serious?
Everything is wrong with your application and the circumstances surrounding it: observe the highlights, they are awful blunders.
Please, there is no need to ask how to correct them because, i can't see that possible at the moment as you don't seem to have any serious reason to want to travel to the UK except that you want to "jand" that's to "check-out from Naija"

ProdulyYoruba: Hello Everyone,
I need your candid and professional advice on the best way to go about my visa application.
Below is my circumstance:
My fiancee, back then, was granted UK ILR which she got by the virtue of her dad's Citizenship
and migrated in Sept. 2013.
They both came home a few months ago for our wedding and stayed back for about 2 months but have since left for the UK.
Meanwhile, we did not register the wedding at the time because of the fear of it affecting my visa application because she
is not currently earning the 18,600 pounds that would enable me to apply for Marriage visa. The plan is to register our wedding
when i eventually get to the UK.
She still lives with him over there - in a two bedroom apartment - and currently studies Nursing but works part-time as a Social Health Worker.
In addition, she is pregnant and we are expecting our first child.
As for me, i work in Lagos and i earn =N=1,560,000/annum after tax.
I plan to relocate to the UK to join her next year and i'm at a cross road as to the type of visa i can apply for
that will give me the privilege to register our marriage over there and also get work permit.
Please help me out.
In the visa application form, there are questions regarding your marital status and other family related issues, are you going to lie in that section?
Things are easier when done orderly, it is better to take your time to get everything organized than to try to outsmart the system.
Man, if you don't declare your marriage NOW, and you manage to get a VISA by declaring yourself a single man, you will get yourself into a very serious regrettable trouble that would give your wife no reasonable ground to fight for you. I WARN YOU!

The two documents that she gave you would be enough if you are lodging in a hotel, but if you intend to stay with him in his residence, that is whe you need these other stuff

3sha4lyf:
My take, put all the relevant docs u have, back them with supporting docs from the German host, include ur previous works or any previous awards, (German embassy may not require too many documents but you might want to highlight past and previous awards and achievements or the likes in your additional info section). I think you should be fine. All applications are delay with in their own merits so, just tidy your side well. You might wanna start by listing docs you already have from your sponsor. Hope this helps
Not a bad suggestion, but remember that the rules are the rules, and they are there to observe.
Germany is a Schengen country, and therefore, it observes Schengen regulations which requires that a business must have tax compliance certificate, and also that a bank statement must have at least 6 months old transaction records.
Even if they give him grace in respect to the deficient bank statement, I don't see how he can get through with a business that hasn't complied with tax regulation: a business which is apparently registered in a hurry to get a visa.

nickson03: Tourist visa cnnot be appeal i agree with you on that, but a family visit visa can be appeal on ground of human right base on article 8 right to family life and private life when you husband is british or family like husband,wife,son who are british. like i said i have sppken to the court and they said my wife appeal is a gaurantee to visa and i do not need to resubmit any document revaluation because i am british and our son is british also and because the appeal was allowed under article 8 of the immugration rulr which righ to private and family life. Pls note these article only apply to british citizen who wife or husband was refuse a visa .
Does a UK citizen need to fulfill the financial requirement (ie £18.600) in order to bring his spouse to the country?
What if he losses his job after the initial application (while on appeal process) would he still be eligible to bring his spouse to the UK? Or, what would happen if the immigration authority learns that his circumstances have changed for worse, would his spouse still be given the visa even though he wins an appeal?
Well, it is possible that the embassy would issue the visa on the merit of the original documents and circumstances in assumption that they remain same and valid, but in the even that they find out that your circumstances have deteriorated, they reserve the RIGHTS to deny the visa.
Search the forum and see that there are numerous cases of people who got refused after winning an appeal.
Look, I'm not trying to discourage you, I am only trying to warn you against loosening your guard thinking all is done and dusted: so, I say, it is reasonable for you to still prepare yourself to the requirements as you may just be disqualified even though you won the appeal.

nickson03: i want to correct that statement of winning appeal is not a guarantee of issuing a visa. if winning an appeal in court is not a gaurantee there would have been no need of appealing eco wrong decision in court. the Eco or ECM does not have the power to hold court decision if they refuse to appeal the judge decision for allowing your allow. if they did not appeal to the upper tie tribunal they have no choice to issue the visa even the home secretary has power to up hold court decision. especially when they visa is family visiting visa wife visiting her husband and son who are british or husband visiting his wife the eco or ecm does not have such to up hold the visa if they fail to appeal the court decision and they cannot ask for wife or husband to summit document for revaluation when the visa is family visiting visa. eco can ask for revalaution document if the visiting visa is for tourist purpose but not as family visa that is been sponsor by her british husband or wife. to make my finally correction of your statement for the avoidance of doubt i have called the court where my wife appeal was allowed to ask if the winning of appeal is gaurantee of visa. i have been told by the court that if the judge allowed your appeal is a gaurantee of visa will be issue to my wife if they fail to appeal the decision. i have also spoken to the home office they also said that winning an appeal is a gaurantee that visa will be issue to my wife if they did not appeal the decision but in case the home office has refuse to appeal the judge decision and they will called my wife to come and collect her visa and that i should allow 12week from the date of the appeal being allow.
this means that winning appeal is a gaurantee of visa if the home office refuse to appeal the judge decision.
You are wrong, my friend, have you never seen that or heard about a person who got refused after winning an appeal?
If family VISIT or SPOUSE visa application was refused by an ECO on the ground of unsatisfactory proof of the credibility of the family member relationship, and you aappealed it, and then in 6 months time, you won the appeal, What did you win?
You did not win the automatic RIGHTS TO BE GIVEN A VISA, you only won the credibility of your claimed relationship which enables the claim relationship to be allowed: in such case, the embassy may demand that you resubmit your application with the current and up-to-date supporting documents and then, reevaluate your circumstances to be satisfied that you still meet the requirements for the visa sought. They are not going to approve your visa based on (let's say) a previous bank statement which is now out-of-date, you would be required to provide current documents.
By the way, you can't appeal a tourist visa

Imeobong: Hello house, Please I need advice, we (Myself & Family) applied for a UK Visa, (already we have a 2 years US visa). My bank account balance is in 8 figures and my monthly earning is in 7 figures and we were denied because according to them they could not confirm our hotel reservations in UK. But this is not true as the reservations we made through booking.com is still valid.
Now a lawyer advise that I should not allow my money (N285,000) go down the drain, that we should appeal. Her fee is N50,000. Please what should I do? Should I appeal or reapplied? Thanks.
You did not state the visa category that you applied for nor did you give adequate information to work with.
However, I do not recommend you waste your money to a lawyer because, I am not sure that the application is one that requires a lawyer's service.
Please, provide more information and I'm sure you can get free help here rather than paying away N50k (for something that you can do for free)

Be advised that winning an appeal does not guarantee the issuance of a visa, she may have to resubmit her application and be reevaluated according to her current circumstances especially if it is not a spouse visa application

Wow! Now I got the full picture.Very understandable..thank you very much sir and God bless you.
My american friends who just relocated to the UK 3months ago came to visit me where I was and they really want me to come stay with them.They both spake with my parents and they agreed to let me go..They are ready to sponsor me and take care of all my needs but the issue is that they just got their UK visa as well and they are not a UK citizens yet.So the husband told me to make research if there is anything that can be done.This is the only place I can get sincere help and advice..please help me on what to do
According to this narration, you are not seeking to travel as a tourist, but as an immigrant, and that is a tough one since you you are not pursuing it through the right channel.
Well, they don't have to become UK citizens before they can invite you to visit them, they are eligible to invite you if they hold the appropriate visas or resident permit, You may be able to get a tourist visa if you satisfy the requirements especially if you can prove that you have a considerable obligation to return to Nigeria for, but bear in mind that you can only remain in the UK if you condescend to become an absconding fugitive and become an illegal alien.

They wrote on it that it is valid from july30 to august 15..does it mean it was a 6months visa with 2weeks stay.And if I want to renew can I get someone in UK to invite me base on visitation and if yes sir,can I request for 2years or normal 6months?
Thanks sir
What "they wrote" on it is called Remark, but the visa should be valid for 6 months howbeit, you can only be in the UK for a period not exceeding 2 weeks according to the remark.
And sure, you can get someone to invite you to visit, but then, you need to meet the requirements for a tourist visa, and also, you need to satisfy the visa officer on the need to issue you a 2 years visa.

komenology: Hi Justwise/Vicjustice,
I really need your honest advice. I'm a graduate and I'll be through with my NYSC by 1st week in Oct, 2014. During the course of my service year I was able to save up to N500,000 in a UBA account. I'm planning to travel to UK for holiday after the service year, I have a cousin/uncle in the UK that can issue me an invitation letter and he will also provide accommodation for me, cos he has been doing this for my elder sister that travels to the UK.
My sister just retired from the bank, and she has a very well funded business she had been running for over 5 years now, so she can also fund part of my trip to UK.
What I intend to do is this; I want to claim that I'm working with my sister's company on a fixed salary which I'll determine later. I also want to run my GTB account personally with the 500k at intervals so as to build my account for the period of 6 months. Let me also include that my dad has a registered company name since the year 2001 which I can also claim I work with.
So finally my concerns are, which of either my sister's or dad's company should I claim I work with, and if I did run the account with time, what are the chances that my visa application will be successful bearing in mind that I will supply the necessary docs like payslip, letter of employment, leave letter and so on. I need your professional advice.

Your comprehensive and prompt response will be appreciated.
You have just requested that I aid you in a deceptive plan, right?
Well, I am not here to help people design a lie and to make it look good, but rather to help genuine individuals.
However, if you want what is good for you, just tell your sister or/and your dad to volunteer you an employment with genuine proceedures otherwise, you are going to waste your money and also get the 10 years ban. Cheers

I think the visa was a 6 months visa with a 2 weeks duration of stay.
Well, renewing a visa depends on the valid reason that you are applying for the renewal.

They would know that you had been refused a UK visa, and European countries may want to pay a better look at why... But that does not automatically mean that you would be refused as well: the REASON for the refusal is more importannt than the refusal itself.
You should be fine if you meet the requirements

hello vicjustice,
please, I need your advice...
I'm an ND2 (final year) student in Auchi Polytecthnic, Edo state.
My dad wants to sponsor my trip to the US in next year February for tourist purposes and I'll be spending two weeks there. We do not have anyone in US so I will be booking a hotel. Now, I will be commencing my one year Industrial Training (IT) programme in Ondo state Ministry of Works come next year January. Please, what are my chances of getting the tourist visa even if I present a letter from the ministry?
Your chances are as good or bad as the quality of the documents that support your application and also, the quality of your entire circumstances as well as that of your father's

How does this make better sense than the previous one?
Of course i consider this question as an abuse of privilege...
Sorry, I have to answer this way, but understand that there are numerous number of guys like you asking this same question over and over and over again. Wouldn't it be more reasonable to first use the search engine?

1.Is this good or bad?
2. Is it okay to go by tomorrow mornin? Dunno if two working days av elapsed
Would you have asked this question if you have to pay money to get the answer?
You applied for a visa, and you got an email saying that your visa has been processed and is ready for collection, and yet, you are asking if it is good or bad (that your visa has been processed).
It just doesn't make sense.
