Greenfriend:

TLS is just a financial associate of UKVI and interviews only for student visas. My certificate of sponsorship was sent to me by my hospital in UK and that is what I applied with, alongside my Police Clearance certificate, TB-free Certificate and IELTS certificate

Ok. Thank you. But do you think someone who had previously been to the UK on Tier 2 visa still needs IELTS and police clearance certificate before they can apply for a new Tier 2 entry clearance from Nigeria?

On what grounds is your friend inviting you? What role would s/he play during your visit? Would you be staying with your friend at any point in time during the visit? You would need to state this as part of your application submission.

You need to prepare a budget of how much you would be spending during the trip for you and your child (include your husband if traveling with you).

I would advise that you be patient till the end of the year by which time your husband must have clocked a year at work. BTW you need a bank statement of at least 6 months. Your husband just started work in November after a year out of work ....this is just 3 months of work and salary.

You would need a constant inflow of funds in your account for six months (to show a stead flow of income) amounting to about N2Million so that based on your budget, you would have enough left to fall back to after the trip.

Good evening gurus in the house and @ justwise. Happy new year. 2019 will favour us all as we apply for visa this year in Jesus name. Amen.

Please, I need your assistance. I and my child applied for 6months Visa in November 2018,got a denial in December 2018 .the ECO said how can I spend 26 times more of my income, as a civil servant although I submitted letter from my mutual funds but their concerns was i don't have a enough balance in my salary and other accounts i submitted .
My questions are
1) how long can i wait before i can apply for another ?because am thinking we should apply in February as a family. (Me,hubby and child)

2) Can my husband apply with us now and be the sole sponsor of the trip although he just started work in November after almost a year of out of job

3) how much can I leave in my account and how much can my husband have in his own account too?

4) do I need to get new letter and statement of account from my mutual fund,mind you the money belong to my husband and we have taken part of the money.

5) while filling the form last time I click I don't know anyone in UK which is not true. I have friends and inlaws in the UK but I didn't want to use any of them that was why I booked hotel. But I want a friend to send me letter of invitation . Can it fly?
Thank you

@bigtt76
Thanks for your response
My friend will accommodate us, which will remove the cost of hotel. Secondly I stated in my first application that I don't know anyone in UK, I don't know if it will affect next application if I submit letter of invitation!!
Hubby might not travel with us but we are thinking we should apply as family to make it fly.

For my parents application for 6-months visitor visa, budget was 3000 GBP for 2 weeks and I stated that I will fully sponsor their trip. They are both self-employed.

Timeline (Standard): TLS Abuja
3rd June: Submitted online application
12th June: Submitted documents and biometrics
3rd July: Passport ready for pickup (13 working days ex. public holidays)
Picked up passports the next day with both visas approved (valid from 29th June)

These are the documents we submitted with their application:

Mine:
1. Original Invitation Letter
2. Copy of BRP and my passport data page
3. Birth certificate
4. Tenancy agreement
5. 6-months payslip
6. 6-months bank statement savings account (2K in this account)
7. 6-months bank statement salary account (3K in this account)

Parents:
1. Cover letter, signed by both of them
2. Company CAC certificate of their registered company
3. Their office tenancy agreement
4. 6-months bank statement from both of them
5. Excel table explaining deposits into their account (I can share a format if anyone's interested)
6. Land C of O and sales agreement
7. C of O of their residential house
8. Marriage certificate

FYI, they didn't submit any tax certificate, I was a bit worried about that but thank God it didn't matter. Now to start hunting for cheap tickets! cheesy

I'm in the process of applying for my husband and son as dependants and my mum as a visitor. Can you please share a sample of the cover letters for both?
Thank you in anticipation of your kind gesture
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by ab4m: 5:44am On Jan 12
Hello room, can some please share to me a sample of cover letter for my wife and a kid.

I will be sponsoring the trip and they will be using all my documents like company details, bank statement, property etc.

Meanwhile, does she need to submit her bank statement also, though stay at home mom, not working nor doing business yet. No much documents on her side

Thanks

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by nomad26: 5:01pm On Jan 12
I've searched my PC, unfortunately I couldn't find it anymore. Let me try and summarise what I wrote. In the invitation letter for my parents' visitor visa, I wrote that I was inviting them on holiday for xx amount of days, that they will be staying with me at my address, that I will be fully sponsoring their trip. I also mentioned the trip budget and the bank account that the money was in. I mentioned my job and the company I work for and my tier 2 visa expiry date. I wrote a bit about what my parents do for a living and that they will return back to Nigeria after their vacation to continue running their businesses.

For my partner's tier 2 dependent visa, I wrote a short cover letter stating how long we had been married and that I support his application to join me in the UK. I mentioned when we started dating and that we have attached photos and whatsapp messages to prove that our relationship is genuine. I think that was all.

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by nomad26: 5:06pm On Jan 12
Sorry I couldn't locate the exact copy. I'll try and describe it here. I created a table with 4 columns - Date, Amount, Sender and Purpose. My parents are business people so they had many large deposits coming in from their customers. I went through each bank statement and typed in all deposits that were above 150k.

cc: lovesavvi, sorry I don't have access to the email do can't reply to PMs.

Dear Justwise and other gurus
I am about to fill our family application form. For me, wify and 4kids. My question is this. Will I write cover letter for the kids also or should I use my own and attach to theirs. What of my wife. Secondly in giving breakdown of expenses, how do I handle the kids application. Should I give breakdown or leave it vacant
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by smilz(m): 6:01pm On Jan 12
Good evening house! I know you can apply 3months prior to travel date but when do they start counting? From online submission or date of biometrics?

Thanks

One cover letter for everything traveling with you and the same with the breakdown, the same breakdown for everybody apart from the cost of flight which will be lower for the kids

Pls I need your help.
I just finished applying for UK Visa for Myself and including my wife and daughter as people traveling with me. I have also paid the VISA fee for 2yrs Visa. But on registering TLSContact Process, I saw a message on the site that implies that I have to also fill a separate application for my wife and daughter (5yrs old). Does it mean that I will pay separately for their VISA fees (my wife and daughter) and book separate appointmentsfor them?

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Kolping: 3:57am On Jan 13
The UK Immigration Health Surcharge, which had been expected to double in December 2018, increased on 8 January 2019 the Home Office has confirmed. The immigration health surcharge increased from £200 to £400 per year for many UK visa categories including the Tier 2 visa, Tier 1 entrepreneur visa, Sole Representative visa and Tier 1 Investor visa categories. The UK visa fee for
international students applying for the Tier 4 visa, those applying for the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa Scheme and for other Tier 5 visa applications rose from £150 to £300 per year.

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by Naiobi: 3:41pm On Jan 13
Hi all,

So, it has been over 6 weeks now since our tier 2 dependent visa application was refused and we are yet to receive the health surcharge which I believe is meant to be paid back 6 weeks after visa refusal.

Has anyone else had same experience? Need advice on how to get it back please.

Thanks in advance.

What do we fill here. Please note that my wife and I work but we are using our private coy which has over 30m as sponsor. Both of us are the shareholders. We are budgeting 5300 GBP for the entire family of 6. We already have a board approval letter and board resolution .

You are likely to have an issue using coy's account because this is a private trip and not for your company.

You and your wife should use your individual personal account for your family holiday.

To be able to answer that question you should first of all get the cost of the trip for all 6 of you individually then use that to answer the cost question in each form.

You also need to give a brief explanation in your own application that its a family trip
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by sgtponzihater1(m): 8:47pm On Jan 13
I will definitely have to visit the UK soon, and this time there will be no going back till I get my ILR.

Hello fellow nairalanders, hope you are all well!

My sister wants to come to the UK in June to write PLAB 1. Does anyone have an idea of if this is possible and what Visa she will need?

Also, is it possible that someone else can fully sponsor her?

In her cover letter she can state that the exam is written twice a year outside the UK (March and November) and that would mean her waiting for months...though I must tell u they frown at the idea of u traveling to the UK for plab 1.

2. Her wanting to take plab 1 means she's a qualified doctor. Notwithstanding, Yes u can fully sponsor her trip. But would be nice if she can also present her bank statement too.

Hope this helps
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by justwise(m): 7:02am On Jan 14

1. She should apply for a visitors visa not mentioning plab exam cos it is believed that we have 3 centres in Nigeria so why travel to the UK to write it. But she can sit for her exam in the UK after she's been granted the visa...no issue with that. OR in her cover letter she can state that the exam is written twice a year outside the UK (March and November) and that would mean her waiting for months...though I must tell u they frown at the idea of u traveling to the UK for plab 1.

1. You are not helping him by encouraging him to lie.

2. No they don't frown at people traveling to the UK for the exam because many in the thread have succeeded in doing that.
