Hello chief
See the attached image.

That's my realme account.

It is legal to help others submit their applications using my created account and at the same time submit mine without doing group application?

If you look at the image, you'll see 2 applications

The first one with a name is for the guy I'm helping, while mine is below without a name, as my passport is still being processed in Abeokuta.

Please advise if their any negative implications
Thanks

Firstly you need to understand that real me is a government platform to prevent identity theft and it’s uniquely used by an individual for several purposes including visa application.

Using a realme account is solely for whoever details were use to open the account and nothing else.
https://www.ivisa.com/new-zealand-blog/new-zealand-visa-and-realme



Secondly helping people with their visa application is very illegal in NZ except you are a licensed adviser or immigration lawyer. However you can assist with filling the forms if the principal applicant cannot do that themselves but cannot provide immigration advice.
https://www.immigration.govt.nz/about-us/our-online-systems/apply-on-behalf

Applying for visa on behalf of someone can only be done by employer or education providers. In this case, if INZ regard what you’ve done as illegal, there will be issues which is likely to be the case. Realme is yours and unique to you.

If you haven’t submit the application, I will advise u cancel it immediately.

P.S: informations in this text are my personal opinion and not immigration advise .

Cheers

You don't have to pay tuition before Visa application. Start your application with your unconditional offer of place and ensure your medical and x-ray test reference number is handy because you can't submit an application for students visa up to one year without the result.

Once Immigration is satisfied with your application, you will receive what is called "Approval In Principle (AIP)".
Once your application is approved in principle, you pay your full one year tuition immediately and send the receipt to INZ for confirmation. Students Visa is usually issued up to 5 days after submitting receipt of tuition payment.

Remember your Nigerian Passport must go to South Africa for confirmation before an AIP. So get everything ready along with a passport handling fee of R505.

Best of luck.

Ensure you draft a very good statement of purpose (SOP) that "must" emphasize the relevance of your chosen program to your current situation or employment back home. It must explain any gap in your education/ career since after graduation.

Most importantly, your 6 months bank statement must show a steady balance of the estimated expenses plus tuition otherwise, attach a "letter of explanation of source of funds" for any huge and recent deposit in your account.


These little things go a long way in reducing your processing time because your Case Officer will have enough info at his disposal and Baba God go do the rest.

Thanks for this but please, I want clarification on something. Must the total tuition fees be paid after the AIP before the real visa can be given or one can pay half or part of the tuition fees and send them the receipt and still receive the visa?

Hello

Have you successfully sent your passport to Pretoria?
If yes, what's the process?

First, you must have submitted your application and paid your visa fees.

There is a thank you message that is generated once your master card is successfuly debited for visa fees. Print a copy if the thank you page and keep.

Next step is to pay the current VFS passport handling fee of R530 (Was increased 2 weeks ago). You cannot pay this fee with your naira master card. Only a Dom account Master card ($or£) can do that successfully. Fund your Dollar account (or that of anyone willing ) with current exchange rate and complete the VFS fee paying authorization letter attached below (see the second document). Attach the filled authorization letter along with the printed Tank you page from INZ to your international passport put in and envelop. Also email a copy of the filled authorization letter to (info.nzza@vfshelpline.com)


Alternatively, you can pay via funds transfer from the same Dom account using your cheque book. Walk into your bank and request for a funds transfer form. Complete the form with details contained in the third document attached below. Note that in this case, there is a transaction reference which must be; Your Full name, Passport number and Phone number.
Once the transaction is done, collect your teller or evidence of payment and attach to your printed Tank You Page. Put it together with your international passport in an envelop and send via UPS to VAC a dress below:

Cherry Lane Office Park
1st Floor, 114 Fehrsen Street
Nieuw Muckleneuk
Brooklyn
Pretoria, Gauteng
South Africa 0181


UPS will give you a tracking number and you can track your item. Mine arrived VAC in 3 working days.

I paid through funds transfer because my Dollar master Care was not ready. So that transaction cost me $50 transaction fee. Access Bank na dem sabby, it was too much though.

Once your passport is certified, you will receive an email that your passport has been returned from INZ South Africa back to VAC Pretoria and ready for collection. In that mail, you will see a link for instruction on how to pick up your passport. It's usually another authorization letter that you will fill and give to UPS (see the first document). They will pick up the passport from VFS and return to Your address in Nigeria. For now, I don't know the collection fee but the sending fee is #19,750.00

See also the another document attached below which is the courier authorization letter for passport pick-up.

Please very important: for your medicals, use only INZ approved Panel physicians in your home country. The list of current panel physicians is on their website.

You might see St. Nicholas Hospital there, but last time I went there, they no longer provide such services. So I used the second panel physician in Victoria Island Lagos. There are other approved physicians in Abuja and PH respectively, but they are just few.

Your result will be sent directly to INZ and they will give you a reference number you will use to complete and submit your application.

Oya fire on.

You can't do international funds transfer from naira account. If you don't have one, get a friend or brother who has and transfer from his account. What is most important is that your passport number, name and Phone number appears as the transaction reference. With that the funds can be traced as your passport handling fee.

Thank you so much. Please, when showing financial proof, the statement of account to be used must have money that covers the total tuition fees plus the $15000, I mean if the total tuition fees is $25000, the SOA must have at least $40000 like that or it's just only the $15000 it must contain at least?

You must show one year tuition and living expenses. If your program is more than one year, you must show evidence of funds set aside to cover for that in the future or a steady source of income that can be relied on. In that case, a sponsor.

You can pay into their standard chartered bank then you put in the pay slip when sending your pp. But I paid using my gtb naira card and it went through.

Just spoke with my account officer now and he said I should try using my ATM card, that it would go through. This response from you corroborate his assertion.

How did you do it! Was there any link you used?

I'm about doing this on Monday.

Visa application submitted via Realme, payment made using Zenith Bank normal ATM naira card and thank you printed.
