[quote author=justwise post=72786475]

Hello @justwise and other gurus
Please I will like to ask some questions:

1.) I will be going on a short visit to uk with my 2 kids, I own an enterprise, I started paying myself 4month ago, N240k monthly, my company account has closing balance of N6m and savings has N4m with Landed properties. kindly confirm if I can go ahead to submit 4 payslips?

2.) Do I need to submit tax clearance in my name (rem:I have a business name or a limited)?

3.)how much am I expected to put as my money to be spent for the trip with my two kids, because I read it shouldn't be more than 2*monthly salary, rem: I will be traveling with two kids

4.) I already submitted my online application, yet to go for biometric, how can I edit or make a change on our application forms if needed?


5.) I made an honest mistake by filling "No" to not being refused in other country, can I leave it? Will it be checked on the system? Please note, The International passport has no refusal stamp.

6.) I will be sponsoring myself and kids, my family/childhood friend(who is currently serving with British army) sent a scanned invite and other supporting docs, how can you rate this application please?

7.) Kindly note that his salary is about £1600 monthly but on his statement at present, his closing balance is a minus(-value), this bothers me because he will be accommodating us(in the barrack) and feeding us as mentioned in the invite. What is your advice?

Kindly advice a sister, gurus in the house

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Chibabe4Christ: 12:48am On Nov 09
Thanks so much Sir

1. You do not need a TB test for a UK visit visa
2. Yes, you can apply for 2 years, since you were once approved for 6 months. It's the natural thing to do. The duration of your intended course is not important. What's important is that you meet the requirement for a visitor visa to the UK based on your present circumstance.
3. Yes, you can stay with a cousin as long as your cousin can provide documents like: passport data page, utility bills, mortgage bills, council bills, and a letter from your cousin accepting to accommodate you in the UK when you visit. [/quote]
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Chibabe4Christ: 12:51am On Nov 09
Please @Just wise, @Ekpotek and other gurus I have tried in several ways using Google to look for where I can log in but couldn't. Abeg help me with the link.
God bless you Sirs quote author=justwise post=72744912]

If you are going for a short course then apply for moths or you can risk it and go for 2yrs it’s up to you.

Whatever link you are looking for it’s available with just a google search [/quote]
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Chibabe4Christ: 1:53am On Nov 09
Abeg o @Justwise and @Ekpotek and other gurus I will like to be clarified about this - Is anything wrong to change your email address from the former one I used previously. I used my gmail previously which is informal but decided to use my company email address which is more formal. Is anything wrong with that please.

There is absolutely nothing wrong in changing your email addresss.. nothing concerns them with email address..I have used 2 different addresses.

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Bisolar: 6:55am On Nov 09
Good morning guys.
Good work you do here.
I have an early appointment but not sure of something. I applied for a uk visa years before biometrics with different given names, same surname and different date of birth. I since corrected my passport.
When i am asked now if i have been refused before do i say yes. I have never been refused under the passport i use now?
I'm thinking of including it in a typed additional information since i clicked no and cant edit. What do you gurus think?
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by akinkk(m): 8:56am On Nov 09
Good morning guys. I'm a youth corper and would want to go for a 2 weeks holiday late December and intend applying next week. My uncle in the UK (ILR) and his wife (British citizen) would be accommodating me for that period. He's providing me with an invitation letter stating the above, tenancy agreement, bank statement, visa doc, passport biodata. My dad would be sponsoring my flights and expenses. I have a monthly income of N47,680 (nysc allowance inclusive). I intend providing the following supporting docs as well;

My bank statement showing my personal income.

NYSC posting and call-up letters.

Acceptance and absorption letter from my employer showing employment period and allowance.

My dad's bank statement and property documents and a letter of sponsorship from him.


I have two questions please.

1) What should be my estimated cost of travel?
2) What else do I need to perfect to make my application favourable as I'm a first time applicant with no travel history.
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Ojoaccess: 9:00am On Nov 09
Good morning house. Please I have a friend who is a fashion designer, her shop is not registered with CAC so she doesn't pay tax. She uses her personal bank account for all the money paid by her customers. Her husband's UK visa just expired and both of them want to go to UK together now on visit so her husband will apply for 2years and she will apply for 6months. Can she say she want to sponsor her trip herself or her husband can sponsor her? Her husband's salary is 250k monthly. If she want to sponsor herself how can she go about it because her fashion designing shop is not registered. They have 2 children but they are not going with them.

Sorry for your refusal. The issues is not about the cost of trip. The issue here is the unexplained inflow into your account which amount to over £5000 within 6 months. If you claimed to spend £200 monthly leaving a deposible income of £489. Assuming you do not touch this amount, that will be £489x 6 = £2934. This is far less than £5000. You will need to explain the sources and purposes of every inflow into your account in the past six months outside your salary to ECO if you want to re apply.

Sure she can sponsor herself. The question both of you will need to answer is why leave your 2 children behind? Who will take care of them while your’re away? If she has supporting documents and a good records of her fashion business, backed up with references from her clients, then she can apply. However, she will need to convince the ECO why her business is unregistered till now.

1. Only you can determine that. You can read back to see posting on cost
2. Question you need to ask yourself is what are my ties to Nigeria that will compel me to return? With your level of income and still dependent on your father, your ties to Nigeria is weak. That’s what the ECO will assume.

Enter Yes and then explain the refusal in a cover note. However note any information about your previously refusal before the onset of biometric is still in their archive. Change of name or date of birth does not change your records as UKVI have one of the most sophisticated document analysis software in the world.

Thanks for the response, as regards (2) I'm presently undergoing my NYSC which ends in March next year, I have a call up letter, posting letter stating this period and a letter of absorption from my employer stating this period as well. These wouldn't suffice?

If not, is there any other documentation I might need to prove ties to Nigeria as I only intend holidaying and getting back after 2 weeks?

[quote author=aderemi166 post=72800887][/quote]

1. You will need 6 month bank statement and pay slips
2. Submit you business tax clearance
3. That observation is if you’re funding the trip for one person. Since you plan to travel with 2 kids, then your budget will be way above N480K
4. No you cannot edit after online submission. However you can print the form and make corrections with tipex and submit along with your documents. If you’re not comfortable, you can cancel the application and start an new one. Request for a refund of your previous application money.
5. That is not a honest mistake. UKVI can determine past countries refusals without a refusal stamp. You must admit it or you’re likely to be ban for misrepresentation.
6. Your application will be assessed based on your circumstances in Nigeria regardless of the documents provided by your UK invite.
7. The ECO is likely to assess if this sort of accommodation (a military barrack) is suitable for a mother with two kids on a visit visa vis a vis UK national security.

1. You planned to spend too much within 6days in the U.K which is like spending your 3months salary in 6days.

2. You lodged significant amount in your bank balance close to the date of your application

pls sir can I prepare a covering letter and reapply immediately with the same docs, explaining all the inflows in my account because I had a furniture, conveyance and leave allowance that entered my account... am afraid if they will not see it as if am desperation.

Sure so far its was a legitimate payment by your employer and they can provide supporting letter to show that the payment is just a coincidence and not money lodgement.

Good evening house and @ justwise,
I need help urgently
Please should i inform the UK I was refused USA visa earlier this year twice with no reason
I don't know if there is a way they get information from each embassy ?

Thanks for the response, appreciated.

1.)Since I plan to travel with 2 kids, then my budget will be way above N480K as mentioned.
Please can I say my Company with closing balance of N6m will be sponsoring us? Is there any formula to use to, if a company is sponsoring.


2.)if I can make corrections with tipex, after tipex, will I write the correction with ink or type on it please?

Kindly advice
