|Travel / Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 2 by Vicjustice: 12:05am|
NuNu08: Hello...plss guru's in the house help out...i applied for Uk Visa 2012 n was found guilty of deception.therefore Visa ws refused and i got banned, My question now is am married to a british citizen and we have a baby, he wants to apply for settlement for Us now..plss what are my chances of getting a Visa?First of all, you need to prove that your marriage is one that is credible and that it's sustained (having a child does not represent a sustainable marriage): you need to satisfy the authority that you are not trying to by-pass the ban with your marriage.
Secondly, your ban remains, therefore, you are short of every right that should be given a spouse of a UK citizen: so, your wife needs to contact a solicitor and use her rights to plead your exclusion case.

arinbaby: @vicjusticeTechnically, your brother can sponsor your trip, but logically, except he is a very rich man, it won't seem to make sense why is doing it, you may need to explain why he is sponsoring your trip.

madream4life: Hello Nlanders, well done Justwise n Vicjustice, I greet u sirs, more grease to ur elbows. Pl I have a quick question. I intend to apply for a UK visit visa in a few weeks I'll like to knw if in filling d application form, I need to indicate or declare dt I was refused visa for other country(s) dt I applied for visa.There is no advantage in hiding this information except if the reason for the US visa refusal has got something to do with a violation or a crime. But if the refusal is for failing to satisfy the visa officer, then it wouldn't affect your UK visa application. However if you lie about this, and they happen to find it out, you will be banned for 10 years,
|Travel / Re: Study In Latvia by Vicjustice: 4:57pm On Sep 15|
akinsjimmy: Please do we have any nigerian schooling presently in latvia? I just got admission in one their university, I need someone to guide me whether latvia is a good place to go. Your coment is highly appreciateThere are some few Nigerian students in Latvia, but the general African population in Latvia is very remarkably small.
Latvian people are extremely shy by character, but the Russians (in Latvia) are just the opposite.
I posted an articles some time before in response to a person's claim about Latvia, so, here it is.
Though, Latvia may not have the best standard of payment or the best economy, but to be honest, you can not compare Latvia to the best country in Africa in terms of poverty or any good thing.
This is a small Baltic country that one can say many, many good things about, and yes, there are loads of good things about Latvia: how do you think they joined the EU if they didn't meet the requirement?"
The country has everything functioning and well organised, even so many things are more organised than they are in Ireland: they're a small country invaded by Germany during the WW2, then, they were under the USSR for so many years until they became independent in 1992 and everything was in a mess, but they built up their country to meet the EU standard, and then joined the EU in 2004, and now, they have met the Schengen requirement and became a Schengen member state since Dec. 2007. They became visa free to Canada in 2007, and in 2008, they joined the American visa waiver (which means, Latvian citizens do not require visa to visit the USA). . . .
How do you think they made all these progress if they have that kind of poverty like you claimed?
My friend, get the facts right, Latvia is better than the best country in Africa in every good thing.
Now, for those of you thinking of going to Latvia, i'll encourage you to go: know that it is a Schengen country and that their visa or Residence Permit entitles you to travel to every country in the EU (including Switzerland an Norway), but excepting England and Ireland, and a visa for England and Ireland are as easy to get as buying a train ticket when you're applying from Latvia:
Note: The Russian Skin Head Racists in Latvia are extremely dangerous; they are extremely brutal and can attack a lone black man with deadly force if they happened to corner him in an area where there is no nearby rescue. So, it is important to ensure that you're always fit and athletic to enable you run fast for your live whenever you're being chased by those hooligans are sometimes armed with jackknives
Note: I live in Latvia for nearly 2 years.
Trivial: Latvian girls fancy black guys.

|Travel / Re: Reasons Not To Go To North Cyprus To Study And Work. by Vicjustice: 11:41am On Sep 15|
Kastamonu: Yes, it is true that it is never rosy no matter where you go in Europe or America but the case of North Cyprus is much more difficult and pathetic. Here are reasons why it would be wiser to go to somewhere way better, than going to North Cyprus to work and study. I just completed my studies in North Cyprus, after spending four years of undergraduate studies, I know exactly what I am talking about here.Everything that this guy said is nothing but the reality, yet, not even all the negative realities that are mentioned.
I have not only been to Turkey and Greece, I have lived in these two countries, and I am a first hand witness of how blacks are treated: i did see racial profiling with my own eyes in both countries especially from their police officers.
In Turkey, the presense of a couple of blacks in a bus station is enough to attract a squad of police officers into passport control, and the officers are willing to negotiate and accept bribes to let you go.
And in Greece, a black man driving a flashing car (apart from in Athens or Thessaloniki) is enough to cause a high spead chase, and the black man is commanded to get off the car, put his hands on the roof of the car, spread his legs apart while the police officers search him for drugs, and any money that is found on him would need serious explanation: Greek police can't be bribed. Experience would teach you that (as an African) it is wise to cooperate with them through the provoking humiliation or you may make things worse for yourself, except you are a black EU citizen who they usually avoid to prevent intervention from your country

|Travel / Re: Nigerians Living Abroad by Vicjustice: 12:43am On Sep 12|
silvertuke: Can Nigerians abroad ever stop fooling themselves? These guys are spoiling the image of Nigerian seriously. The rate at which Nigerians are taking confraternity to another level is getting out of hand. They do confraternity in Nigerian; they go abroad and still continue doing it. The painful part is that the innocent ones are being killed and deported. God pleas help the innocent Nigerians living in Indian.Why is everybody begging for their posts to make a header in the front page, if the posts deserves to be in the front page, wouldn't the mod or whoever is in charge see it as such?
Many of my threads have made the front page without me asking for it.
By the way, if every post has to make front page, can the page take all of them?

|Travel / Re: A Reason To Change Your Accent When You Travel Abroad (america) by Vicjustice: 12:32am On Sep 12|
Chemical2: Hello folks,Changing one's accent is not really necessary, but speaking more deliberately and clearly with appropriate pronouncing of words are relevant.
You are right, in many cases, even unaware of it, accent can begin to form or evolve in a person who lives in English speaking countries ie: The UK, Ireland, the US, Canada, Australia and New-Zealand etc, but it is somehow ridiculous to see a Nigeria who lives in Italy, Greece or Spain etc trying hard to mimic Black American accent. That's funny

masterp204: Hello justwise and vicjustice . Am bout to renew my uk visa. Should I use a paid hotel booking/reservation or just an ordinary hotel reservation.What they require of you is your proposed accommodation details, so whichever is ok by you is acceptable provided it is genuine.
Some hotels have very limited number of days of the validity of a reservation that hasn't been paid for, so be cautious of the time sensitivity of such Hotel before making a reservation to avoid refusal due to invalid accommodation details. But if you are to pay for the reservation, ensure that the hotel has a refund policy just in case you need to withdraw your booking in the undesired event that your visa application is refused.

Before the leave started, I gave my car to my mechanic to service and to make sure everything is in order before we embark on the journey since I wouldn't want to put my little kids in jeopardy .N113.000, that's about E500, even in Europe, you don't spend that much to fix a car wheel hub

LazzyH:Well, i will suggest that you assume N220k for flight, check google for the areas of interest so you may have an answer to give when asked "what would you be doing in the UK?".
Also, budget some money for transportations, site-seeing and shopings and possible emergencies: Make a round figure of N600k.
As for your parents sponsorship, that depends on many factors. Click on the below link to get more help:

babyspice: Great topic @vic. ,, ustice. It's good to take the mystique out of the process. I usually stick my return ticket in my passport so they see my return dates themselves when asked. Eye contact is also good too.Don't be deceived, immigration officers aren't necessarily asking these questiongs to find the answers, but rather to test you for inconsistency, they can see many of the answers in their computer system

kalamayat: Noted, please what about residential permit holders. Thanks!A person who really holds a residence permit do not need to ask this question, so, I suspect that you are intending to impersonate a genuine residence permit holder.
Well, in many cases, you won't be asked much questions, but these basic questions may be asked:
Where do you live In?
Where are you coming from?
How long were you away?
The way you answer these basic questions and your body language would either grant you entrance or call for more investigative questions: and in the case of more investigative questions, you will be caught.
