Goodmorning fam, i know there's a lot of frequent travellers on here so i hope to get very crisp ideas smiley. My mum is coming to d uk with alot of food stuffs via ethopian airline(flight is transit). She has 23kg X 2. In order to maximise the kg has shes coming with a lot i suggested to her not use travel bags but instead ghana must go bags as they are light weighted. Is this a good plan
Warn her not to try carrying those bags on her own before or when she lands no matter what.I still suffer from waist pain I got from carrying those heavy Ghana must go. Trolley bags have the advantage of being pushed but the Ghana must go contains much stuff.

Good morning
Thank you everyone for your contribution
God bless you all
I wished I had seen this thread earlier

I called as instructed this morning around 10am and I was told a decision has been made (I guess yesterday night or this morning) and they said I should get a mail very soon or sms from my VAC.

However I still checked the status on the app now and it has not changed. It has not ticked green for transfer from DMC to VAC.

pls can someone enlighten me on this or what to expect next

@giselle

Have you gotten a response now

I am thinking it is not necessary since she isn't contributing any dime towards the trip. Also, I want to safe us the stress of having to explain deposits into her account.

I get your point but some times I feel it helps to show that the applicant has access to their own money. Maybe a line to say she receives regular gifts in monetary form from family and friends in the additional information section.

Hello Guys ..Please I need your help/advice

My sister is inviting me to the uk to visit for a while. She has a house there and a job (she is a doctor). I resigned from my job in February(currently Unemployed) tho I make money from crypto trading, I also do photography. My parents are sponsoring my travel logistics including visa fee while my sister will accomodate and cater for me once i get there. My passport is a virgin passport My parents have been to the uk several times (3 times in the last 10 years). I think thats all the info i have.

Please any advice on how to go about the application especially in terms of employment status and income. thanks

Suggestion: You could say you are taking a break from work to spend some time with family including visit your sister. You can also highlight that your hobby is photography and at times you sell them (to explain deposits).

Perhaps it might be best your parents gift you your travel cost that way you are applying with just your account details. I think the only thing to worry about is that your parents are funding your trip and that might lead to a reviewer questioning your financial status but again you can only do so much about it.

Hello everyone, pls is it ok to purchase to separate one way tickets from different airlines in place of a return ? Can this create any issues at point of entry? Thanks in anticipation

Not at all. You will be asked about your return ticket though as it would be evident you flew one way so have it handy to present if asked.

Thanks a lot my chief. I appreciate , but which airlines would be advisable to fly with now looking at the restrictions. Direct flights via BA or Virgin Atlantic are pretty expensive
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by Nchabuomo: 7:39pm On Apr 08
[quote author=delana post=100615101][/quote]

Personally I prefer direct flights as I don't really like flying, lol, so the shorter the flight time the better.

If you are using BA it might be cheaper for you to fly out from Abuja.

But in the end look at your budget and see what works also consider layover time if you pick a connecting flight. Your COVID-19 test should be valid for the last leg of your flight.

Thank as i await response from u guys sir

You can attach a letter with your application stating clearly how you got the extra funds you talked about with copies of receipts you gave your clients for payments made, with the clients name clearly written or invoices that demonstrates payments as the names and amount reflects in your account.
I think you should also try to get your brother’s bank account but if you can get it then you will be your own sponsor.

TLS should send you passport collection mail in no distant time. You can also visit their office after some days if you don't receive the passport collection mail from them.

Personally, it makes no sense for someone earning 91k to propose to spend 850k on vacation and tourism. That constitutes almost 11times your disposable income.

Your budget is unrealistic.

Well-done guys. Please I need a prompt assistance from you guys. I got married to a Nigerian-Uk woman by 2018 . We have been afar from each other because she lives in the UK while i stay in Nigeria. We just agree to be together and I would like to travel to be with her. Please am confused about the whole picture or photos stuff . Especially we have not done church wedding, but court . And we have court pictures, a small indoor TM pictures, some casual pictures taken in the salon when she was making her hair and pictures during a church Thanksgiving service with her. Please are these picture evidence enough to convince the ECO?

You didn't consider the yearly income. The ECO didn't complain about the budget for the trip, that means the ECO was cool with the budget. The ECO only complained about the numerous credits from different sources made into the account statement that was provided.

We are only speculating here bro. Even if the ECO doesn't expressly state or base his refusal on the fact that he is budgeting to spend 10 to 11times his disposable monthly income on a few days trip. A bugdet of around 650k is more preferrable in my opinion.
