The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Lagos State Command, on Sunday confirmed that it had received the 65 Nigerians deported from the US last week.

The Comptroller of the command, Mr Ayo Oredipe, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the deportees, consisting of 59 males and six females, started arriving from March 12.

He said that they were deported for 19 offences, ranging from rape, fraud, robbery and overstaying to sexual misdemeanour.

I beg to differ, this is a direct relation of what is known as pre-action protocol and yes it is not compulsory, but who is going to lose out, who is the person wearing the shoe which is pinching him/her undecided

If you send your appeal via Lagos, the ECM would look at the ECO's decision and see if he can overturn his subordinate's decision in light of new information provided. If the decision is favourable to the Appellant, the High Commission would contact him/her to come and pick up his visa, if the decision remains the same i.e. unfavourable to the Appellant, the case gets forwarded onto the Appeal Tribunal in UK. Only appeals received via Lagos goes through this process.

On the other hand, appeals sent directly to UK gets logged into the system, then it is after this that the ECO (the Respondent) and the Appellant is notified to prepare their own submission for their defence and to send in further documents which they feel are relevant to the case. The next stage after this is the hearing date for each party to come and represent themselves before the Judge.

For appeals received directly via UK, the Respondent is given some days I think around 56 days, to respond, and it is not unusual for them to take the piss and reply 4 months later, so why would you now want to chance it and wait for the UK Tribunal to initially give the Respondent 56 days to look at the case again, then another 56 days to prepare their defence undecided The case only goes to the Judge once, unless it was adjourned by the Judge himself, so which other member of staff of the Tribunal is going to look at the case and send it to the ECO in Lagos to reconsider the adverse decision undecided


Grammar poju.

What is the essence of this epistle. tongue

A copy of the grounds of Appeal sent directly to UK will be sent back to Lagos post for them to review their original decision or get ready for appeal.

ECO and or ECM can repent by issuing the visa or prepare a BUNDLE(which comprises of all copies of documents presented by the applicant including visa application form PLUS a comprehensive report why the matter was refused) for the Judge to act upon if its paper hearing OR for home office presenting officer to act on behalf of ECO in the hearing.

@Akolawole,

I know that even Paribus has a lot of accolades for you and so do I. From what I see, you're an authority on this issue, but I am not inclined to doing seperate student visa as my wife may be able to afford school fees but not one year living expenses to show the ECO and that could jeopardize our chances.

I could apply alone, that would be the best approach but asking her to apply after 3 months for a dependant visa could also be clumsy as I'm going for a one year course and it would seem like an afterthought to go that way. I don't think the ECO would be very easily convinced in her case that we need to be together. Defeats the purpose.

Don't mistake me, I really appreciate your advice.

Yes, my company will state the benefits to be derived from sponsoring me.

Thanks


God is the authority jare.

You dont need to convince ECO about having your wife's quest in joining you. She is your wife and you have a high degree of emotional attachment towards her.

All the very best and we hope we hear the good news from you soon(amen)

@pataki, akolawole and funkybaby

My Aunt stated that she is an Doctor whilst her husband is a barrister, they are both UK citizens

its not the first time either of them have sent invitation letters to anyone of us here in Nigeria.
Not once have they had to send copies of their mortgage agreements or utility bills

How else does one prove relationship ( should we state my mum and her sister's maiden name)

i have travelled to stay with her before and i didnt even use an invitation letter not to talk of utility bill. na dem call her in the UK to verify.

In the new form it was asked whether who was sponsoring her trip and she replied herself cos na she dey pay for her ticket so how does that make my aunt her sponsor.

My aunt is just her host

it was to the question of feeding and accomodation that she replied her aunt.

Now if she's to reapply
should our aunt send another invitation letter stating the type of accomodation, number of rooms, as well as utility bills mortgage etc.
Should she also send payslips etc.

@funkyBaby,

Thanks a lot. I've checked out the thread you referred me to and I found Paribus thread very useful.

You're welcome.

I have few questions though:
1. What's the deal between you and the company sponsoring you? Are you expected back?
2. Is your wife insisting on studying at the same time as you are?

In my opinion, I think it's best you submit both applications together.

i know a secret on how to get a UK visa in lagos or abuja witout soending much, though you will still need the required documents stated by the third poster. the secret is that you need a visa or a not too common country issued on your passport and when that is noticed at the emassy of UK in nigeria your visiting/student or watsoever visa will be issued. i have tried this with three people and it worked.

You're welcome.

I have few questions though:

1. What's the deal between you and the company sponsoring you? Are you expected back?


Officially - Yes
Between us - hmmmm,



2. Is your wife insisting on studying at the same time as you are?

Personal family issues have made it  very very necessary that we be together.

Newly Wed; Wife alone in Naija, Not a good idea for our situation (like I said, Family issues)


In my opinion, I think it's best you submit both applications together.

Thank You. We will.

God Bless.

@ldee 0304
Alright.
I am also totally against newly weds getting seperated except all other options have been exhausted.

I asked if your wife insists on STUDYING at the same time you are.

The decision she makes will determine just how to go about your application. . . .
Two student visas application or one student visa+one student dependant application

You know with student dependant,she is entitled to work full time (or have you baby smiley )while you study.
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries by coldwater(m): 5:01pm On Mar 23, 2009
Funkybaby,

Thanks for your usual tips. My wife and I want to travel to UK for vacation. Can you give me some tips to ensure I secure the visa at once?.
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries by Ldee0304: 12:35am On Mar 24, 2009
@funky

oh sorry, I missed the question there. She's not insisting, but we think it'll be better, so that we're both busy (what do U think?)

We're looking at going with one student visa+one student dependant application.

babies, hmmm, undecided

Thanks @funky.
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries by cvibe: 7:13pm On Mar 25, 2009
From my point of view, a student visa never expires because you can keep renewing it with all types of courses etc.

[size=15pt]UK Launches New Student Immigration System[/size]

Abuja — Henceforth, Nigerian students who wish to study in the UK will be able to apply for their visa through Tier 4 of the new streamlined Points Based System.

Under the new transparent system, Nigerian students will need to prove that they have been accepted onto a course run by an education institution which is a UK Border Agency (UKBA) licensed Tier 4 sponsor. They will also need to prove that they have the means to support themselves, and supply their biometric details at their nearest visa application centre.

If granted a visa, the new regulations allow international students to undertake part-time work of up to 20 hours per week during term time, full time work during the holidays and undertake any course related work placements.

Jason Ivory, the UKBA Operations Manager in a statement by the British High Commission, said "Nigerian students have a lot to gain from studying in the UK and can now see whether they are eligible for a visa before they even apply - making the system much clearer and easier to understand. The aim is to make the application process more transparent and straightforward.

"For the first time, all independent fee-paying schools, colleges and universities that want to accept international students to study with them now need a licence to do so.

"This will help the UK Government crack down on bogus colleges, something which will be welcome news to many Nigerian students." who can now be sure the language school, college or university they intend to study at is an approved educational institution.

"So far over a thousand UK institutions have signed up to sponsor international students".

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries by peter2010(m): 9:23am On Apr 05, 2009
I got my uk work permit in january 2009 in london, but i was told i need to get back to nigeria to get entry clearance for that because i was on working holiday before getting the work permit. I was in nigeria in march to apply for the entry clearance but it was refused because the ECO try to contact my future employer and he didn't respond well and that the uk account i used was suspicious, it seems to the ECO that it was inflated fo the purpose of the application. I was given right to appeal but I think this will be delayed. Should I appeal or reapply?. Please I need candid advice on this issue. Thanks alot for ur response.
