[The little I know, no one parent can travel to the UK without the other's consent. Which is usually a sworn affidavit unless the other parent is dead or the one with the kids have sole custody after a divorce. She should get a lawyer and write to the British High commissioner. She can even do it by herself but she needs to articulate her points well. With evidence of marriage and birth of her children. If she is sure she has not mistakenly signed consent to him o. My 2p

Pls what would you advise or what step can she take? I've gotten her to put up the story on Nairaland and Twitter. The topic is currently on the front page but no meaningful submission.

I asked about consent letter because the UK embassy takes child welfare seriously and i'm expecting such letter to be added to their visa application.

If he forged one then its a serious immigration offence.

She needs report to the embassy with his full name and that of the children.

Does the husband have family in the UK?

What type of visa did he apply for?

I'm struggling to be believe that the man travelled with those kids without any sort of written authorization from the mother and was not questioned at the POE

On second thoughts, I'm thinking maybe the husband played by the books and processed visa for the whole family but withheld hers and left with it. However she can still petition the High commissioner. An immigration lawyer will advise better. I feel her pain

Have you spoken to your school about your medical condition. Maybe they can help you and tell the procedures to see a doctor.

Or the school can arrange a doctor to visit you. But you should inform the school on your arrival and where you are isolating. So they can provide all the assistance you need.

I thought this, because it’s hard to leave the country with kids, without consent from the second parent. And if he left without her consent, it’s in her favour as he may get banned for lying.

Tell your uni to send you the letter you need to register at your GP and to recommend the closest to your house (or google it yourself). When registering at the GP, mention you need immediate help. If they delay by 24hours to get back to you and your health is in bad condition, dial 999 and enjoy your ambulance ride.

If it’s not serious enough to dial, just be patient; the gp will get back to you

I understand the pain of this woman, but she needs to thread with caution so as not to jeopardize the advantages this kids will have over there compared to what is obtainable here, it won't be nice for this kids to get banned from entering the UK based on if their dad lied about the consent letter.

She needs to contact the embassy as soon as possible and give them as much info as she can. She can also take this to twitter and tag the embassy and other children welfare charities

In her shoes I would contact the high commission and let them know.
Maybe also try NAPTIP.
And I'm surprised the high commission gave them visas without a consent letter from her, and that the airline too allowed one parent to travel alone with 3 children on visitor's visas (red flags) without making further enquiries. He must have forged those apparently.

I have a cousin who is a nurse here. Her husband and children were living in Nigeria. The man died a few years back and she came back for the funeral, then her children came to live with my mother. When she came to collect them a year later, I took them all to the airport and the BA people insisted on seeing evidence that she had the right to travel to the UK with the children alone. She showed his death certificate and all that, but the airline staff asked to interview the children separately ("Where's your daddy?", etc.) and she was only allowed to go when they confirmed the narrative. Later on, the BA lady told me that they really allowed them to go because they were on settlement visas.

Go to any A&E...... accident and emergency. It's a department within the hospital and you will be attended to . So find the closest to your destination
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by mimilyrics: 12:33am On Dec 27, 2020
You will have to call or fill a pre-appointment form depending on what your condition is. The online form will ask you about your general health and any Covid-19 like symptom after which you'll be contacted by the appropriate health professional.
Except it is an emergency, you shouldn't go to a GP or hospital without an appointment especially when you're supposed to be isolating.
For emergencies, go to A&E but if you have any covid-like symptoms and you're able to call ahead, pls inform them of this.
As per GP registration concerns, you can pre-register online with a GP in your postcode while in isolation but for the full registration after isolation, you'll need your passport/BRP to prove your ID and a proof of address (you can use your tenancy agreement for this if you have one or get a letter from your school to confirm this).

Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by mimilyrics: 12:53am On Dec 27, 2020
No, that was a typo, the A&E in brackets was supposed to go elsewhere.
Clarification: Appointments are for GP and general hospital visits/health checks which is why I said except it's an emergency because it's not needed for A&E which are for emergencies. The distinction was for the OP not to confuse a general hospital visit with a trip to A&E.
For those not in emergency situations but with pre-existing conditions like the OP, there's a provision for them to get hospital/GP appointments/referrals and help on e-consult.

I applied for a job for which I was qualified. II was told I can only get hired if someone from the UK (4-in-1-Country), or from the EU (27 + x) is not interested in the job. It means no matter how good I am, the fact that I am from Nigeria means I can't get it unless the advertiser proves that no EU or UK citizen needed it.

The reason I voted LEAVE in 2016.
The reason I would have voted LEAVE (had Corbyn et al had their way for a 2nd referendum).

Cool...... although it might be preexisting, immediately you come to this country you won't have a gp as that takes time. The Gp might even ask to see your BRP which shows your actual status

So for a quicker turn around Samgalaxy I think just go to A&E. ..... you will be sorted faster

That's what one of the husband's family members told her

That really can be heresay and not true..... maybe she should get a lawyer to write to British high commission lagos. They would have record if visas were issued, whether they would share that information is another matter

There this Nigerian couple in UK I know , wife went to give birth in America and decided the man was a horrible husband (although he really was angry) but no evidence and refused to come back. The guy contacted Us embassy, got lawyers involved and the case it was decided she kidnapped the kids and the kids were returned to the man ... she didnt return to the UK but the two kids were sent back to the man ... maybe your friend can read this and get some direction on what to do

If, as expected, EU citizens continue to leave the UK for other EU countries, as a fallout of Brexit, then it is logical to expect more UK job opportunities, according to the forces of demand and supply.

Another advantage for non-EU citizens in the UK, who until now have been treated unequally as EU citizens (due to EU laws) is that every non-UK citizen will now be equal (at least on paper). Whereas prior to now it was UK/EU citizens ahead of all others, now it will be only UK citizens before all others (i.e. Nigerians and EU citizens will now be seen as equal under UK laws, unlike before).

Already, the 2-year post-study work visa is a huge advantage of Brexit, for the millions of non-EU students that will benefit from it. Ditto for the new tiered immigration system that’s about to commence in January 2021.

Those could be considered advantages, from a non-EU immigrant point of view, as it is expected that there will now be a level playing ground for all immigrants, regardless of nationality, and EU citizens will no longer be legally prioritised over other non-EU nationals. Effectively, Nigerians would now be second class residents (only below UK nationals), rather than third class residents (below both UK and EU nationals). grin

Exactly my thoughts mate..
