Please, I need your advice on this. I applied for family dependant visa. Based on the 28 days rule, the bank statement cover from February 1 to March 4, 2020. I paid and submitted the Visa application online on March 14, 2020. Please do the bank statement still inline with the conditions in bold and italic form as follow.

A bank-slip, bank statement or certificate of deposit that shows you have held enough money to cover your course fees and your monthly living costs for up to 9 months. They must show that you have held the required money for (at least) a consecutive 28 day period which ends within the 31 day period before you paid your visa fee online. For example, if you paid your fee online on 15 August, the bank-slip, bank statement or certificate of deposit you submit must show that you held the required money for (at least) a 28 day period that ended between the 15 July and 15 August. (Source: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/tier-4-student-visa-checklist)

Also, I am supposed to have my appointment on 27th March, 2020 at TLS contact Lagos Ikeja Centre, Nigeria but all the centres are closed now until further notice. Please does it mean, I may be asked to resubmit another bank statement when called for appointment latter. I am afraid the money in the account may drop before things normalized. Please kindly advise me on what to do. Thank you very much.

Thanks bro.

I was about to criticize people on this thread that they don't support with information, until I saw your response

I told her to leave her house in Surulere and go to Etiebet's place in Ikeja. She got there around 1;30pm and she was issued 6 months VISA to expire in October, 2020

Thank God.

Am just leaving TLS Ikeja office.

Okay, help me look at the, the bank statement dates (Feb 1 - March 4, 2020) with that 31 days clause. Does it mean the bank statement currently satisfy this clause. It seems I can't interpret this statement They must show that you have held the required money for (at least) a consecutive 28 day period which ends within the 31 day period before you paid your visa fee online. clearly.

Many thanks for your response

First time 6months UK visit visa applicant with self service

Application was to go preparatory course in April 2020 and exam in May 2020 all in UK.

Materials uploaded online :
1.7 months payslip and account statement (opening of 20k closing of 1.4M)
2.Letter of introduction to British Deputy High Commissioner office for both the preparatory course and the exam
3.Visa support letters from the exam body in UK
4.House rent transfer receipt and nepa bill
5.Letter from my pension manager and stockbroker
6.Spouce visa support letter
7. Family pictures, children school fees receipts and their results
8. Land documents and car documents
9. Flight reservations for both travels (April and May 2020)....though they already expired
10. Hostel accommodation in UK (free cancellation policy) for both travels in April and May....still current until yesterday I cancelled them since I was travelling again due to Coronavirus
11. Cover letter stating my traveling in April for the preparatory course , coming back, then travelling again in May for the exam. ...because both were 42 days apart and my office cannot great me to stay in uk that long since am not in annual leave.

Finances :
Salary 468k,
disposable income 400k.....spent 68k for family upkeep while wife (lecturer) contributes 30k from her salary. ...she also stated it in her letter & also to happily stay with the children while I travel

Total cost of travelling in April . ..360k.....3 days

Total cost of travelling in May....400k........4 days

I told ECO that both cost of travels was 760k which is still below my 2 months disposable income of N800k and I still have a balance of about N600k after all the travels. Also my investments, pension and land documents.

My home ties...

Family
Work
Investment
Land




Timeline :
My application was submitted online on 3rd March 2020 in ikeja TLS centre ( i wanted to do priority appointment of about N145k because it was closed to my traveling date. ....but on further advise, I chose standard appointment of about 45k...with hope of getting the visa exactly in 3weeks time, so that I can travel on 2nd April 2020.

Biometrics on 4th March 2020

Passport picked on 25th March 2020...exactly 3 weeks after biometrics with 6 months visa application granted starting from June to December 2020

My travel dates were April 2020 and May 2020

Due to Coronavirus pandemic. ...my preparatory course and exam was shifted by the exam body to possibly September 2020

I was seriously worried because it will affect my travel if I get visa with validity from March 2020.

I sent mail to uk visa office 2 weeks ago that my purpose of visa application has been shifted to possibly September 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic , that i will if I will be given the visa, It should start by August 2020, because given me visa from March 2020 may be expired before I travel and this may make me apply for another visa again.
After 48hours, I got response from UK visa office that there is nothing they can do about it.
I left everything to God in prayers.

I got my passport today exactly 3 weeks after biometrics with 6 months visa application granted starting from June to December 2020.....meaning I will still do all my intended travels after the Coronavirus pandemic is curtailed.

Maybe God touched the ECO heart to re-adjust the visa validity dates.

Thank you all again.

I think this will be the first time I'm opening this UK thread or making a comment here.

So my spouse has a surgery in May in the UK and we applied for a Visa. We did biometrics on 16/03/2020 and our passports were delivered to us yesterday 25/03/2020. It came with 6months multiple entry, Type C to start reading from May to November.

This is my first travel out of Nigeria. Any good advice is welcome.

Thanks.
