shineslamp: Hello All! I'm new here but I need urgent advice on my UK application. I made an online application for Canadian visa, however I was denied on not having a strong tie and also on economic ground. I have had UK Visas and about renewing again. The part of the UK application where you are asked if you have ever been denied visa of any other country, I'm thinking of saying no as it's an online application and it doesn't reflect in my passport. I need to be sure this embassies don't work hand in hand; Could the Canadian embassy have forwarded any info to the UK embassy seeing I'm a regular visitor there.Though, the UK and Canada do not share common immigration database, but you need to understand that western countries have extremely good diplomatic ties, therefore, it is reasonable to consider the possibility of these countries having a system program for checking immigration details of visa applicants similar to checking someone's names in Google search engine.
If you are caught lying, you will be given the 10 years ban, but if you admit your experience with Canada, your honesty will definitely add to your credibility.
TELL THEM THE TRUTH, you have nothing to loose.

Basically, it is a certain riligion doctrine of a thing that affects and deny women's rights: in southern Nigeria, women are arguably not treated worse than men, but we can't say the same about northern Nigeria where religion rules are observed by force. The same applies to countries like India where some percentage of the population practice this certain religion that disdain women and call for barbaric disciplinary actions on those who do not comply with the religion codes.

"Holiday" could be visiting someone or touring the country. So, if you are visiting, then you should need an invitation letter, and if you are touring, you should present accommodation details.
But as a person sho has held a 5 years visa, shouldn't you know all these?
Why would you be using a sponsor?

debolay: Hi Justwise, vicjustice etc. please i will be renewing my uk visa for 10 years (currently on 5 yrs) later this year, will i need to submit a letter of invitation with my application? if yes can i use another sponsor?I suppose you have a purpose to apply for the 10 years visa like I expect you had reasons when you applied for the 5 years visa.
So, the purposes should determine whether you need an invitation letter or not.

inikamoze: If you are planning on stealing anything closer to Accra Mall or at the Accra Mall, you might want to think twice as the embarrassment and punishment might not make you the same person again.Africa and barbarism.
What authority in any sense gave these fools the right to take justice into their own hands?
What trial had the girls undergone to declare them guilty as charged?
These girls (at least one of them) might just be innocent.
To be honest, i feel like saying that it is not just the rulers of the dark continent that are fools, the vast majority of Africans are fools as well, and I owe no apology for saying this.
Some time recently, I saw a clip of some foolish mob beating up a woman to naκedness and ordering her to spread her legs.
Some people are beaten to death for allegedly stealing peanuts,
children are buried alive for witchcraft allegations,
some are burnt alive after excessive beatings,
a pastor slapping a poor woman,
police extra-judicial killings,
soldiers torturing civilians,
police and soldiers fighting with riffles,
a senator taking child bride... oh, I'm running out of ink... SICK

nickson03: You do not need to present the child at the embassy in nigeria you only need to download the application form from www.gov.uk-overseapassport. And fill the form and post it or send it direct to her majesty passport office in uk where it will be process. You are no longer require to present the child or you attending an interview with the child at the embassy in nigeria. I have also spoken to the british embassy in nigeria this morning and i was told that i cannot longer apply from the embassy because the have change the process and i only need to aply direct to uk and after the passport has been process her majesty will send the passport to embassy in nigeria for collect. Note that the only time you need to go to embassy is to collect your child passport and the present of the child is not needed. The mother or father only need to go. And collect the passport with their id.Interesting. But whose image then would be in the passport?
Are you sure that you absolutely understand the instructions?
I'm saying all th these because, I doubt that it is possible to get a passport without the physical presence of the child for the photo shots.

nickson03: Thank you for your contribution. I have spoken to her majesty passport office and i was told that they have change the process applying for child british passport. I was told that i need to aply for for child passport direct to uk and do not longer need to aply through embassy in niggeria they have change the process. I have been given the address where i need to send the application. Another good new is that the application will take up to six week unlike before where u aply through embassy in nigeria and the application can take up to 6months. Other people should note this that they do not longer need to aply for their children passport in embassy in nigeria but aply direct to uk. Her majest passport office, OVS-D, millburngate house, durham, DH97 1PA. The phone number is 03002220000. This is the new change of aplying for children passport in nigeria no embassy process.
nickson03: You will need to send ur application from nigeria direct to the address i gave. After processing the application her majesty office will send the passort to embassy in nigeria where u can collect the british passport. But you do not need to aply through embassy anymore but send or post the application direct to that address. Where is the website for the new process to find out for yourself. www.gov.uk-overseapassport. Pls click on the start application. It will asked you which country are u applying form select nigeria and it will ask you if u re aplying for first time passport select first time and it will ask you if u re aplying for child under 16 or audit select child and continue and u will see all the information and where to send your application to directly to uk.Thank you for the information.
Ok, I understand the application can now be made in the UK, but what about the processing of the passport?
Did you just say that you are required to collect the passport at the embassy in Nigeria?
If so, then, apart from the shorter waiting time, of what benefit is the new system if you still have to present the child at the embassy in Nigeria as you can't get a passport via proxy

nickson03: Helo everyone, does anyone have an ideal.

darellrivers:No one is discouraging him, we are only being honest calling a SPADE a SPADE.
Actually, in a more sincere note, you are encouraging him to waste his money on an application that is more than likely to be unsuccessful: an ideal advice would be the one which suggests that he (first) applies for his individual student visa, and then he may apply for his children's visa in future.
What visa officer would approve visas for him and his kids in his given circumstances?

Also is it too early to start application process now? Thanks

It would be impossible to get a visa using a business account belonging to an uncle.

yincahmicheal: My friends here on the forum I like to tell you that the major reason why most are refuse a visa is mostly because we have forgotten that it only God that make all things possible, but why putting together our documents we always forget to had most essential document and the most sweet able agent which is prayer and faith, add prayer to your application and make God the first and the last and u will be disappointed it prayer that will back up ur document and application and it this same prayer that will speak for u at the British High commission, when your faith is shaking in your God and you believe more in your application and document I bet u, u may end up not getting anything positive but please just do your best and leave the rest to God am so sure in Him he never disappoint and he will make a way for u where there seems to be no way. Do not rush in so that time you will not fur fit(false application) your chances of getting a visa. (Ban 10yrs). Follow advise and the rules and leave all to God to had what is meaning, God is not a magician but He is a miracle working God. Have faith in Him It just a Contribution my brothers not a sermon nor a preaching. Thanks all

Arobake: I'l be going to Cork, Ireland on an Aer lingus and a Virgin Air flight with a 2-hour stop over at Heathrow airport (all done within Heathrow airport); please would I need a transit visa for UK? Huge thanks in advance.I've been wondering why the UK immigration (sometimes) require some passengers to obtain transit visa (even) at the airport while the passengers are on their way to depart, my research has resulted in the discovery that the passengers that are mainly affected are holders of passports bearing visas or stamps or any evidene of connection to middle earstern countries: but this is a sensitive issue that the UK immigration doesn't want to confirm.

Below was my refusal note, kindly help interpret:Your salary is great, but your financial circumstance is the issue here, basically, your application was refused for reason of your unsatisfactory available fund.

outgunnerx: Hello vicjustice,1) While Money Lodgement is unacceptable in the bank account of those applying for tourist visa etc, it is considerable to have a student's primary bank statement showing evidence of Money Lodgement, but the origin of the fund would be looked into especially by investigating the secondary account (of the sponsor) from which the Lodgement was made: and if the sponsor's account does have evidence of Money Lodgement, then it will be unacceptable.
2) Again, as a student, it wouldn't matter how long the money has been in your account, and again, the secondary account (which is your your sponsor's account) would be looked into and investigated.
3) If you need to feed and maintain yourself during the 2 years period, then how do you expect that you provide evidence of funds for one year?
And while you may be entitled to take up an employment, but Visa Officers would like to see that you have the capability to cater for yourself during the entire period of the validity of your visa without difficulties since jobs can not be guaranteed.
4) His bank statement would be the secondary one, the one supplying your own bank statement which is the primary one.
5) What game are you playing by "about twice"? It is either twice or it is not, how could you have been in the UK about twice?
Tell this to a Visa Officer and you would be subjected to further questions as it would suggest that you are not a straight forward person.
Anyway, your travel to the UK will definitely be an advantage to your application as it suggests that you are not desperately trying to leave Nigeria.

simplyred: from what im reading it seems i need to open a savings account for myself. also will my wife apply for business visa wile i apply for visitingAffirmative, you need a private account separated from your business account.
Tourists are allowed to do shoppings, so, your wife can apply for a tourist visa: the process for a business visa is somehow tougher and complicated, she would need to get invitation documents from business partners in the UK.

kunlebal: @VicjusticeStringent requirements or standards are mainly applied on visa applicants in countries with economic deficiencies who pose a risk to immigration rules. Though it is a general requirement to provide bank details with 6 months statements, but as an applicant who is legally residing in the USA, you should be fine with one of 3 months provided the VO is satisfied in other aspects.
