Hello All,

Great forum as always.
Just want to ask about your opinion on my chances.
I just applied for my family:

Me: Been to U.S 3times (Bus.,/leisure),
Been to UK 3times (Business) still
with valid standard visa

Wifey: Been to US 3 times (2 holiday trips, 1 birthing)

Child 1: No history, under 12

Child 2: U.S Citizen)
Child 3: U.S Citizen). TRIPLETS
Child 4: U.S Citizen)

I applied explaining I already have a visa but it's a family holiday, I will be supporting with £1k as wifey is sole applicant with a total budget of £4.5k. Hotels booked, some family fun tickets purchased, others will be on entrance(communication with event centres sbmitted also), wifey statement 5mm. Your kind response is appreciated

Thanks

Is there a reason at all you think this won't fly? On the surface, it looks a done deal though as much as the basics were appropriately covered, like; form filling, no previous issues with them (and even with the US), eldest child/children being on holiday at the time, sound account running despite the N5m balance in wifey's account, etc....

Please relax, each case is reviewed on its individual merits. I know of someone that got a 10 year visa with a similar account balance. I wish u the best.

Thanks bro...God bless you

KDK, thanks. We have a newspaper publication we did in 2016 but I have never submitted it in my previous application that is why I am thinking if I should go and do another newspaper publication so the ECO won't say I hided anything in my previous application. My wife has never applied for a U.K. visa before but I do write her name in my previous application under SPOUSE INFORMATION with her maiden name as her surname.
Sir, I can see you are very worried about this. There is nothing to worry about here. The name you have in your previous application is valid. Use the old publication. I want to believe your publication states that all former documents remain valid. If you want, you can give an explanation in your cover letter. You don't need a new publication. The old one even gives you more authenticity/credibility. Just state that you erroneously addressed your wife by her maiden name. All the best sir.

NB. Follow Justwise's advised steps. There is no need to fret.

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by walmart: 4:25pm On Jul 16
Good day experts. I did my biometrics on the 6th of June, till date no passport in sight. Each type I track, no decision has been made. The training I was going for was to start today. That aside, I have another trip which I have already paid for which I do not want to miss. Please does anyone know if there is any need to call UK immigration to enquire, and if I cancel my application how long will it take to get my passport back?
Thanks.

ekpotek:


Unemployment is only acceptable if your mother is looking for work. Home making/housewife is preferably if she is an elderly person. What was her status in her previous application in 2011? Just explain in your cover letter why your mother is unemployed.

You budget line should only be for her flight ticket and perhaps £100 for incidentals. Accommodation and feeding is free. She coming there to see her grandson, so all those expense like shopping, etc should be eliminated. Move money to you current account and re submit both current and saving accounts and explain to ECO to show you have access you saving account, you have moved £2000 to your current account. Then you can also credit your mum account with flight ticket money and £100 pocket money. Again move the fund from your savings and explain to the ECO that you doing this so that you have access to this account and she can buy her ticket from Nigeria. The ECO want so see that you have access to your saving account, so show it.


I am trying to now fill in a new application. In regards to the above, what should I fill in as her employment status considering that she is a housewife/home maker?

Kindly advise on this please.

You have to call or email them first, have you visited to the visa centre to know if by any chance your passport is there?

Hi guys. So I just called ukvi in regards to my family’s application. They had their biometrics on 25th June and a decision hasn’t been made on their application.
Anyway, i was getting worried as my graduation is on Friday and I need my family here to cheer me on so I called today and I was told a decision was made on one application. They’re three applications and they submitted as a family.
Is it normal that they make a decision on one application and the others still pending?
It’s confusing to me. Please is anyone familiar with this kind of situation.

Hello everyone I am new on this thread. Please I wanted to find out details on how to go about my application. I have filled the form not submitted though , I am a homemaker and my husband is sponsoring my trip with my son I wanted to know if on the column that says how much you spend in a month if I am allowed to write anything considering that I don't have any monthly earnings. Plus my son is a us citizen should I still carry any documents for him since we will be going together. Also I have a valid us visa do you think that can help my chances of them overlooking the fact that I am currently not employed. Thanks all hope to get a response soon
