It is not compulsory but if you put it, no issues.

Is it mandatory to include evidence of flight booking as well?

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by Fekeri: 5:21pm On Sep 27, 2019
Just picked up my passport with a visa on my 4th attempt lol. First attempt was refused for auto cancelled hotel booking and unexplained deposit. Second was cancelled for unexplained deposit despite my many explanation as well as third refusal in March 2019. 4th attempt I printed one year account statement covering refusals from second denial till date and I tabulated every single credits and corresponding debits with evidence of how the other payments came in that weren't salary and it was a very long list of about 5 pages of cover letter. in fact a primary 5 pupil could understand it. Submitted September 3rd and got email that my application has been concluded on 23rd. I was a bit skeptical because I expected a longer consideration given that they would need time to consider everything.
My take: don't give a limited information. make sure you use the additional details space on the application and if not enough politely direct them to read the cover letter.
Just before I forget, I send my cover letter to a mate here who have turned to be a family friend and he was like.... your words harsh o. I said leave it cos I feel oppressed. In fact I summed up my yearly salary and compared it to the 4 other credits I received within the year that was causing the refusal and I questioned the significance of the amount to my total earnings. I queried all previous 3 refusals and demanded a careful treatment lol. After submission I faulted myself for being kinda rude. But my expressions were logical obviously clear. I got it. I submitted the regular documents for a self employed person. My fear was using 2018 tax clearance as I haven't gotten 2019. And again the new sticker was different from my wife's sticker. If I hadn't handled it myself I for fear self.
Thanks Justwise all the GURUS and everyone here.

Hello ma'am from ur response seems you applied for both of you.....you should have included a minor travel consent letter from your spouse. Saying he allows you to travel with the child. Submit compulsorily consent letter alongside other docs you submitted or wanna add in ur new application. Its part of the immigration rule for minors under 18years.....since his a baby and must be accompanied.
I did submit consent letter form me and spouse.My spouse was given too but I guess they did not Trust we will come back

But sadly those payments were not lodgments but since payments were close to application dates and were without proofs they thought it was lodgments and were repeatedly been mentioned in all refusals. For instance annual leave allowance without a corresponding payment letter from owned company. I carefully explained everything.

Thanks for the response. Think it’s hit or miss with UKVA, or the competency of the Visa Officer. Worried about the time it takes from getting a mail on the Application (UKHUBVisa) and when it actually reaches the TLS office. Any ideas on how to expedite??

She simply made a budget to spend more tgan 2months her salary which is a no no. If I don't understand anytging about U.K visa, I understand that you musn't spend more than twice your disposable income.
Your sis could have worked around twice her disposable income since her sis will probably accommodate and feed her.

His budget for the trip was £800 , He is only going for 13 days. He earns 180k monthly. and He's also gonna stay with his Sis. accomodation and feeding guaranteed. I am saying all these here so that people can learn. Lets brainstorm.

Ok..It is very possible that the company where your friend's sister works pay some good benefits to employees such as leave allowance. This might have supported the budget of her trip.
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by giselle237: 9:44pm On Sep 28, 2019
his salary is 180k yes but he also wrote that his total monthly living expenses amount to 50k.... . that means real abi disposable salary is now 130k monthly NO LONGER 180k.. there is no brainstorming needed here

Monmarri:




Within March till date i have been joggling two jobs,my regular job and a consultancy job in which the salary is very irregular but huge because the contract i signed with the company is on "call out bases".

You will need to explain all these sources of income in a cover letter to the ECO with all the necessary documents.

For the 2nd source of income which is the consultancy job. U need to explain to ECO that u have additional job but the salary is irregular, you make atleast xxxxx any time you do the job. U will have to explain with prove. Get prove from the company you are doing the 2nd job. Let the credit entries of the salary reflect on your account with the name of the company. If the name of the company is not reflecting, u will have to explain to ECO the salary credits entry with date and month. E.g on the 28th of march a credit entry of xxxxx from my additional job.

1. For your monthly expenses it is usually the amount you spend on your living expenses, your dependant, y accommodation, all payment of bills. ( Light, water, etc.). Calculate how much you spend every month on all these and balance it with your regular job. E.g If you earn 50k in regular job, then your monthly expenses will be like 20k or 25k.

You have to explain to ECO that usually your monthly expenses is Xxxxxx but in the month March and April from your savings or 2nd income you purchased a land and car that you want to use for Uber. Attached evidence and pictures of purchased items. U can also state the date and month the total amount was debited from your account to prove to ECO that the money use for the purchase was from your sources of income. E.g on the 28th of March a debit of xxxxx was made from my UBA Bank for the purchase of land.

2. If all the sources of your income from y jobs are genuine and you have all evidence to back them up, then u will be fine. Just explain details in paragraph for the ECO to understand and with evidence.

3. You will have to submit all the Landed property documents in your name. And the pictures of the land .

4. Since this is your 3rd denial you need to be careful and get it right this time. Just make sure that all sources of income are genuine with evidence, you have a comprehensive statement of account, explain well all credit entries and debit in your account. I believe u will be ok.
The best agent you can get is all advice from member of this forum. Just gather it and make your application.

All the best
