Hello everyone in the house.

I wish to salute Justwise, Ekpotek and all other gurus on this forum. Well done for the selfless service being rendered to humanity. I have been a silent follower for years, but decided to make this post in the hope that some persons will benefit therefrom.

My wife and I applied for UK Visit Visas and we were both given. She applied for 6 months, while I did for 2 years. She is a 1st time applicant, while I have been to the UK once, like 7 years ago. Then I was given a 2 year HSMP work visa, but only travelled once and stayed for 14 days. I have other international travel histories, though.

Our time lines are as follows:

1. Submitted online applications at about 10 October 2018;

2. Biometrics was done at the TLSContact Ikeja on 18 October 2018;

3. Emails received from TLS informing us that applications have been transferred to UKVI for processing on 18 October 2018;

4. Emails from UKVI informing that our online applications have been received on 24 October 2018;

5. Emails from TLSContact Ikeja informing that our passports are ready for collection on 1 November 2018;

6. We picked up our passports at the TLSContact Ikeja on 6 November 2018 and found that the passports have been stamped with UK Visit Visas.

Our Supporting Documents are as follows:

1. Letters from our respective employers showing when we were employed, our annual pay and plan to travel to the Uk;

2. Our payslips for 6 months;

3. Our salary account statements for 6 months. She had a credit balance of about N500k, while I had a credit balance of about N1.1m;

4. Photocopies of all our international passports [in colour];

5. Our respective retirement savings account statements;

6. Our respective fixed deposit statements. She had N6m, while I had N7.5m to mature in early December 2018;

7. Letters explaining that the funds in the fixed deposits would be available to us for our travel;

8. Our hotel reservation on booking.com;

9. Marriage certificate;

10. 2 family pictures;

11. A schedule of our itinerary in London which shows all the interesting places we planned to visit in London;

12. Breakdown of our respective costs of travel, i.e feeding, tickets, accommodation, intra-city transport. We ensured our respective costs were not up to our 2 months salaries;

13. Our children's birth certificates;

14. Our landed property document, jointly owned; and

15. Rent receipt for our present accommodation.


I do hope the information above would assist, at least, one person in his visa application.

I wish all the UK Visit Visa applicants success.
Congratulations. Please, did you apply for standard or priority visa?

ekpotek:


Invite letter, copy of his passport datapage, utility bills, council bills, mortgage letter, 6 bank statement and payslips etc

Since you have explained his supposedly 2 years outside the UK, no need to worry about about his ILR. I guess you can give it a try and apply. Most importantly, you will need to proof relationship and that you want to take the baby to see her father. with emails, phone call logs, chats etc apart from the marriage certificate. Also the following documents will be useful: his previous flight tickets and boarding pass to Nigeria, photos as a family in Nigeria etc. On your own part, you woll need to proof that you will return after the visit. Employment letter, bank statement, properties, etc.


Thanks very much.
We attached almost all of these or even more to those 2 applications so I keep wondering why I was refused both times.

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Pelaiye2703(m): 11:03pm On Nov 07
Good evening to you all. I intend visiting my Uncle and probably spend the Christmas with him and his family. He lives here while his family resides in UK. I have a steady job which brings in 65k every month, but lately i decide to start a poultry and catfish farming which is yielding a reasonable but NOT STEADY income. I’m just confused when my Uncle said he’ll be attaching his passport with mine in order to stand a better chance. I have the following documents to back up my profile;

1) Employment letter
2) Salary account statement
3) 2 Personal account statement(s)
4) Tax receipt for my business
4) CAC docs for my business
5) I’ve been to Ghana twice
6) Getting married next year but engaged

Please is it really possible to attach my passport with his?

Hello gurus in the House..
Please I need some advice here.. I am inviting my friend for my graduation in the UK.. so all documents on my part are intact he will be staying with me. I have letter from school
Tenancy agreement
My tier4 VISA etc.


On his part however, although he is working and earning about 180k problem is that the salary gets paid from a ‘personal account’ (I know Naija business and anyhowness) although it is shown constantly over the months.

2. Second issue there has been huge inflow and outflow over the past months over 80m through the account with a present balance of about 1m (he handles projects hence the amount) again transferred mostly from personal and sometime corporate account.

So question is: will receiving salary from a personal account be a problem and does he have to explain all the random transfers through his account.

Wil this show sufficient ties to Nigeria?
Ps:the only travel history he has is Russia World Cup.

Gurus Please Advice

Please don't ignore. You don't need to have the reference number. Simply state that YEs, you have been refused before. If you don't remember the exact date, but you know the month and year, simply state the month and year. If you only remember year, state the year.

Explain further in the extra page for "more info" that you have been refused back in 2004, you can't remember what date/reference no it was, as it's been a long time.

Whatever you do, don't lie. Do not be economical with the truth by ignoring it either. If you do..na automatic denial be that.

My stated salary was my monthly gross minus the PAYE.

I did not sponsor my wife. She sponsored herself, in order to reduce complications.

My budget was 1,396 GBP, while hers was 1,025 GBP. They did not add up to our 2 months salaries.

1. No information on course of study. This will include school receipts, letter from HOD, school ID card, school photos, examination results, etc.

2. Who is funding your brother study? Sponsor bank statement and cover letter, specific transfer for school fees, school allowances from the sponsor's bank statement which will also reflect on your brother bank statement.

3. You are sponsoring your bother trip to the UK, but he has over N3 million in his bank account! Haba, how do you expect the ECO to believe him.

Your brother application was badly packaged but it is still redeemable, if you can attend to the issues raised by the ECO with the above documentation.

Dear Ekpotek,

I really appreciate your response and analysis on the matter.
We submitted all the items you talked of in Item 1 except the school result. For item 2, I paid his school fees in January 2018 and it did not reflect in his statement because we printed 6 months statement and submitted. His allowance is mostly given as cash or I tell his brother to give him while I transfer to his brother. For item 3 it was not 3 million but it was N3,000.00 that was the balance. I will appreciate if I can get a way to explain the Financial ties as identified in bullet point 3 because he is a student and does not have any money and most times as you send to him, he will withdraw and use.I will appreciate your advice.

How much will the trip cost him? Yes he needs to explain the inflow and out flow of those huge amount that goes through his account.

Surely the cash-in-hand payment has to be explained.

I intend to write "Visa refused on consular discretion" or simply "Consular discretion" what do you think ?

Justwise
Also, I will like to talk to you about something else. How can I reach u pls?, email or any other mean will be appreciated.

Thanks to revert

That does not answer the question and will leave the ECO guessing what that meant. State clearly the reason for the refusal as was written in that paper given to you by the VO

I rather you ask me any question you have here

Please don't ignore. You don't need to have the reference number. Simply state that YEs, you have been refused before. If you don't remember the exact date, but you know the month and year, simply state the month and year. If you only remember year, state the year.

Explain further in the extra page for "more info" that you have been refused back in 2004, you can't remember what date/reference no it was, as it's been a long time.

Whatever you do, don't lie. Do not be economical with the truth by ignoring it either. If you do..na automatic denial be that.

How much will the trip cost him? Yes he needs to explain the inflow and out flow of those huge amount that goes through his account.

Surely the cash-in-hand payment has to be explained.

Thank you soo much Justwise for your response.

The trip will cost him <£1k - £1k5. It is basically a 5day trip and i am taking care of accommodation and feeding... so he really just needs Ticket + beer money.

Can one call it cash in hand..? It is stated as "Renumeration for X-month" consistently for the past 6months but it is from a personal account.
The inflow and out flows are basically payment to site workers/contractors. (just gone through the statement a total of 36m for 6months) How does one explain this so it doesnt look shady? Is it a matter of highlighting the bulk sums and explaining or just a general blanket statement.


(I just read the rejection letter and i'm worried, where the ECO complained about the inflows and as a result wasnt sure the money was available to the applicant)
Please Advice.

I

Thanks

Sorry to bother u more

Why I am somehow confused is the fact that I believe those ties are there (Over 1m naira monthly salary with payslips to back it up and letter from employer, landed properties, FD and TB of over 8m naira, shares - all built over time of over a decade of working with good Sal and position,etc except of being single) And was issued 6-month UK Visa (first attempt) with same profile before the US refusal with my mum. I really still didn't understand why the US was refused. However, I really like to get the 2-years UK now, hence I am seeking ur counsel on this. thanks and I will appreciate any other advice from u. Any other additional info needed to include in the application to justify the 2-years? God bless u for the selfless job being done
