U survived the accident (hitting your head) because God kept you alive for a reason
I'm sorry for saying 'just' $200
But please Sir I really need your help, you can lend me any amount that you're comfortable with, I'm having heated family issues rn that I need money to sort out and take away the shame from my family name
I don't mind paying you back with interest
Boss please I beg of you to help me
If I had my way I would have sorted it out myself, but right now things are not moving smooth for me
But hopefully my stakes will click by next month which is still far to me
I have hope of paying u back with Usdt pls

SOS!!!
Canada have asked me for passport after 3 years, they don wake up!!
We are already booked for biometrics for April 27 and deadline to submit to Canada is May 8.
I've tried contacting Nigerian high Commission in London about expedited processing but their phone line never gets answered.
Please guys I need your help

Does anyone know if fast/expedited processing is still an option? No information on their website about this

How can I contact UK high Commission and get a fast response?

We provided a supporting letter from my Dad and his passport. Also uploaded that of my siblings / Dependents in Nigeria and birth certificate for those who do not have, a family picture and also uploaded her bank statement even though we were sponsoring her trip.

tshoboy:

Congratulations! We all need this rest. What did you use to prove her ties to Nigeria?

Would this also be a good option if it's a family of say 5 with 10 big bags/luggages each weighing almost 23k? Or the person should book/hire a mini van that usually contains 8 persons?
giselle237:
fly to Manchester and use taxi, bus or train from manchester airport to Leeds. By taxi it is 50 mns to Leeds.
If u have so much bags, pls use national express from manchester airport as they have a busstop in the airport or take taxi home. Taxi appropriate fare is 70 to 80 pounds. Google A1 taxi and call them when u land.
Again I do not advise train trips if you have boxes with you. The struggle and rush and all not worth it.
Wakanow is safe. Only use them if you are sure of your travel dates and wont make any changes to these as any change after u have paid for ticket, u wont smile

national express is the bus/coach service .. there’ll be heathrow airport terminals to leeds, manchester airport to leeds etc. you can ride from the airports, you do not need to go into the city.
trainline you can buy train tickets

Good luck and Godspeed.
Permanent residence in Canada is way better than the half-limbo of a Tier 2 visa with no security and NRPF.

When you go to the HC, speak to them there, the passport unit chaps are approachable and if you explain your matter, they might be willing to expedite for you even if fast track is no longer available.

It is if you pay. We got ours out in 3 days. It’s your last option of course. Hopefully this end works.

Good luck.

Someone enter my DM with the guise of changing money and found their way to my whatsapp. They have been using this format to harass me for some days now but they haven’t succeeded. I ignored the first time and thought they are actually pressed, second time I read our chat history and it became obvious to me how they gained access to my whatsapp. I’m sure they are still hanging around in this thread, be aware guys.

Oh and by the way, they belong to the opposite gender and have a soft spoken voice but I’m too hard to be cracked with such

you can send only passport and generate immigration share code and fill in the share code(there is a provision for that). So you might not need to send your brp if your share code is still active as at the time they are processing it.
Hi, I have tried generating my share code but I keep getting errors that my details cannot be found. What could be wrong please? I am checking with this link https://www.gov.uk/view-prove-immigration-status

option 1- minivan from the airport straight to your destination from manchester airport
or national express coach that leaves from manchester airport, it’ll go straight to Leeds.
When you get to Leeds, order Uber XL or Bolt XL from leeds bus station to house/hotel.
Avoid train.

Bank account you don't need BRP but you need proof of address

I think you can resume pending BRP, although you NI will be written at the back of brp

It depends on your organization but I believe you may need to initiate prove your right to work to your employer using your BRP. The code will be shared to your employer.
For bank, if you are in Scotland, Bank of Scotland is easier and straight forward but you need address. For access to health, you may search for closest hospital or health center to you and book appointment as a new patient. They may likely send you a form online to fill.

You don't even need to pay anyone sef, depending on where you are doing it. Pay official fees and still get it in a day or two.

I realized this when we did ours. The official text to pickup came a day after our connect brought it. So laslas it would have still come out fast. But it’s better to be safe than sorry grin
