Lol......

When I received my first council tax gbese, even though it was expected.....I still frowned....payed it immediately to reduce the annoyance...
I calculated my estate security dues, mai guard, refuse collection etc in UAR and it didnt come close, so i thought of Education, health care, a working society and I felt better. ..

Preshyi:
This is more complicated than I thought o. Council tax no dey our budget

Travel / Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by Iruosonobrugwhe: 6:31pm On Sep 06
You will pay day 2, day 5 and day 8. If day 2 is positive, then forget your day 5 money...it becomes inconsequential. best is to wait until after day 2 results then pay for day 5. You can be free from day 6 if the result is negative but you must still do day 8 test.

nwauwa:
pls for test to release, are you required to pay and undergo day 2 test, then day 5 test and release on day 6 or does test to release mean just day 5 only test then release on day 6?

This is for people that have done test to release

I used same email for all with separate passwords per application... kids are minors.[iT turned out fine

quote author=rebless post=103793223]Good morning Nairalanders,

Please when applying for a family visa, is it advisable to use the same email address for all the applicants or better to use different email address for each individual in the family? I hope that if one uses the same email address for everyone it will not result in confusion or affect application when it gets to appointments stage.

Thanks [/quote]

So this is the point i want to officially say thankyou to everyone here. You all represent the real Nigerian spirit of communal living. i got so much info from this thread that folks think i should be a superduper agent(who no go no know). From mummy GOs Tier 2 visa, to mine and the kids...it was smooth sailing, everything done from my desk. So after thanking God, i want to thank you all and inform you that i am now a bonafide member of Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant group. If i can i will write out my experience soon so watch out for the diary of a Tier 2 Handbag

One thing is certain, recommend this thread to others. Nothing is new, somebody must have passed through whatever you are experiencing.

Godbless you all. make i go dey learn innit, you aw righ, thingy,mate etc. For now right hand drive is causing me confusing.

Thanks a lot for your efforts. actually i am only asked to submit BRP, birth certificate, consent letter an TB cert. maintenance is ticked on CoS
dubaiprince:


For tier two visa, I submitted the following for the kids.

1. Birth certificate (very important)
2. Consent letter (very important)
3. BRP (Very important).
4. The passport data page of my child (Very important).
5. My own passport data page and visa page (Very important).
6. The visa application form.
7. Some pictures of the child (like 10 is enough)
8. Immunization card.
9. My Certificate of Sponsorship (very important).
10. Letter from my employer certifying my maintenance. (my employer is A rated though and maintenance was certified on my CoS, so I did not need to submit this but I just did)
11. My bank statement (I did not need to submit this as well because my sponsor is A rated but just did).
12. Tuberculosis test certificate (Very Important)

For my wife, I submitted what I listed above except immunization card, birth certificate and consent letter. I added marriage certificate, reference letter from the bank showing we operate a joint account and some pictures.

It is advisable to upload proof of relationship as much as you can.

thank you very very much

dubaiprince:


You don't need to go as far as mentioning your plan to move to a bigger apartment in the consent letter. You also do not need to state you currently stay in a shared apartment. Just put the address you are living currently. I am not sure anyone will come and confirm if accomodation status. I applied for visa for my wife and 3 kids last month and they all got it within 9 workings days (standard application) while still staying in a shared apartment. I just started looking for a bigger apartment. I am on a tier 2 visa.

actually concurring with you.

Amongst other things means letter is not enough you have to prove it and the address would be looked up.This is an advisory forum so take what you need.
Travel / Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by Iruosonobrugwhe: 12:13pm On Jun 08
it actually states amongst other things that the letter of consent should confirm "consent from parent(s) to the living arrangements in the UK and the address where you will be staying.

Tutu82:

This is not correct information,you do need to prove it through accommodation amongst other things and they will check for safeguarding and child protection.
Travel / Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by Iruosonobrugwhe: 10:35am On Jun 08
Thanks much appreciated.

Yes it is stated as a shared apartment. The urgency is just to give enough time so they can be in before schools resume.

hello Fam

Currently applying for kids to join in the uk. part of the documents required is consent letter signed by both parents stating some thing amongst which is plans for accommodation. still in a shared apartment but plan to move before they arrive however no concrete address yet.
Do we state in the letter that we intend to move to a bigger place soon or wait till we get the place then apply? suggestions welcome.

With the sad cases of folks who go to bring wives from village that turn something else, i begin to think, what About the Nigerian ladies in UK? at least those ones still have an element of home and will be better understanding and help with the kids. abi the men don show dem shege?
Ilekokonit:


That one small na. If you want to bring up your child in the UK the way you were brought up in Nigeria, you will be lucky to escape prison as you are not allowed to smack your child in the UK and school teachers actively check your child's body for scars if they suspect the child may have been flogged at home and the child need not tell the teacher, your neighbors could call the police or your child's classmates may tell the teacher after being confided in and the teacher may then call the police depending on their judgement on the smack.

What would you do for instance if your own wife tells you in front of your 10 year old son who you were about to discipline that "If you touch that boy, I will call the police" ?? and this happened to a close friend after 10 years of marriage to a woman he went to bring from Naija. Suffice it to say that they are now separated and she has driven a wedge between my friend and his 2 kids whom she monopolizes and restricts access to my friend. And this na woman wey him give papers o. And this is one of the reasons I believe that going to bring a woman from Nigeria is not the magic bullet for a happy marriage.

Thanks @AshiriOluwa

Please suggestions are welcome. Ticket was bought before Turkey turned red. Cancel tickets?
Ashirioluwa:

Yes because Turkey is among the UK red list countries. Avoid transiting through the red list if you can.

Also the red list rule will affect you because you have close contact with other passengers while boarding at Turkey airport and also while seating inside the plane from Turkey to UK.
