It is not a requirement and you are not obliged to be accommodated by your sister even if you are on a family visit: it is very safe to book and lodge in a hotel even if you are visiting your own parents.
But man, you got to be careful now, you could get banned if the visa officer observes that "your sister" who you claim to be visiting is not physically present in the UK: It is safer for you to apply for Tourist/Visit visa rather than to apply for a Family Visit visa.

instinct30: I reconnected with a friend who stays in the US on facebook six months ago, and he wants to send me an invitation letter for a visit. However, my colleague said the possibility of my being granted visa is very slim because I have never traveled out of Nigeria , irrespective of the fact that every other thing is intact ( account balance, letter from work etc). Could my colleague be right? because I feel kind of discouraged to apply.
No, your friend is incorrect, any first-timer who meets the requirements for visa may never be denied as well as any frequent traveler who falls short of the requirements may be refused: first-time or frequent traveler, this is only considered as a means to assess a visa applicant's credibility.

It won't be deemed appropriate for you to apply for a 2 years visa at this stage, long term visas are issued on the basis of necessity, for regular travellers who are constantly in need of visa renewal.

Vicjustice:
If the 50% fund that accumulated from your salary savings is good enough to satisfy the visa officer, then there should be no worries about the Lump Lodgements. But if you are hoping to use lump lodgements as proof of your financial standings, i'm afraid it is not looking good at all.

In my own case, i moved out the money in my savings account into a fixed deposit account. Can i add my fixed deposit certificates to my account statements when applying for the visa?

You may add it if you think that the fund in it is impressive enough to represent a home tie, but if you are thinking of using a fix deposit statement as a proof of financial support, i'm afraid the Visa Officer will judge that the money is not available for your use.

You need to apply for 2 years now and not six months again. First process your own application before u submit your wife and children application. Ni from PH

2 years visa is issued on necessity and not on sequences. So, unless if it is deemed necessary, it won't be appropriate for him to apply for a 2 years visa at this stage, long term visas are issued on the basis of necessity, for regular travellers who are constantly in need of visa renewal

Vic, I know the OP personally and apart from that, we both are issued our first time UK visa at the same time last year, while i have gone ahead to renew my to 2 years this January 2013, so me advising him is base on my personal knowledge of him which is similar to myself, that is why i said he should go for 2 years instead of renewing for another six month.

I see.
If the need for the 2 years visa is deemed necessary, then he could be given the 2 years visa. But if he is applying for the 2 years visa just because he has been issued a 6 months visa before, he may be disappointed.

Vicjustice: Its boring to hear people asking "what documents" that are required for this or for that visa, and i see that no matter how many individuals that are answered, there will continue to be many others who will ask the same question over again. It doesn't make much of a sense to ask this same question or to keep on answering it to everyone who asked it, so, i've decided to create this narrative list to answer the question conclusively.
Here are the documents that are required of visa applicants of every category. This article is subject to modification and updates:

* Invitation letter or accommodation details from the country you intend to visit;
*(If on invitation by ad individual,) a copy of the bio-data page of the passport of the person inviting you.
* Your national passport or travel document with at least 6 months to expiration;
* (If you are an alien resident in the country that you are applying from,) evidence of permission to remain in the country: ie, a residence permit or an appropriate long-term visa;
* Passport sized colour photographs, not more than 6 months old;
* (If employed,) a letter from your employer granting leave of absence from your job for a specified period. The letter should also say how long you have been employed by that employer, in what job(s) and should indicate when you are expected back at work;
* (If self-employed,) evidence of your business activities and financial standing;
* (If a student,) a letter from your school stating what course you are on, its start and finish dates and the dates of the holiday period during which you intend to travel abroad;
Note: if you are not working you should include financial documents of the person who is supporting you; if someone else is paying for your trip, You would be expected to explain why you are being sponsored and to demonstrate how your sponsor will benefit from your trip.
* (If applicable,) evidence of any property you own in your home country (if applicable)
Note: the property is expected to represent anything that could be considered a tie; such property may not be an isolated land or building that are not deemed to be taking more of your responsibilities: it is different if you own (let's say) business property that requires your obligatory management;
* Details of any firm travel plans you have made ie itinerary:
Warning! Do not book a flight because, you will forfeit your money if your visa is refused. Itinerary does not mean flight ticket, it means travel plans which are, the preparations that you have put in place: such could be site seeing or tour guide arrangements;
* Bank statements showing up to six months transaction details, must show sources of income:
Warning! Avoid Money Lodgement, you will be refused without question.
* (If applicable,) evidence of any income from other sources e.g. friends, family, savings, property etc
* (If applicable and/or if the purpose of the trip has got something to do with family,) Evidence of family relationship and marital status ie Birth Certificate and/or Marriage or Civil Partnership Certificate, divorce certificate, death certificate (of spouse)
*(If applying to join a spouse,) Evidence of relationship and communications or correspondences with your spouse: ie telephone details; emails; posts or/and photos of both of you together.
* (If applying to join a spouse or family,) Birth certificate or Age Declaration document
* It is very important to be able to show Ties or Obligations to return to.
Note: Although, family or social ties and responsibilities are recommended, but logically, family ties aren't considered as strong as other ties because, there are vast cases of seekers involving in immigration fights to bring their family to join them, but yet, the magnitude of the family may be considered
* (If an ex-convict) The official record of any conviction(s), detailing the crime(s) you were convicted of and the sentence(s) you received
* The appropriate fee and 1 million dollars for Vicjustice
Note: You must provide original documents. Failure to submit original documents may mean your application is delayed or refused.
HARD DOCUMENTS are documents that carry Security Authentications; or Stamps; or Seals; or Signatures; or Apostiles, etc: (For example a Marriage Certificate), such documents must be submitted in their original states. Any other document that does not carry any of the mentioned authentication is allowed to be submitted in photocopy state: Your hard documents will be returned back to you in due ty.


Your questions or contributions or concerns are welcome here
