Hello corrtec_amir

I applied from karachi as well on the 9th MArch for UK spouce visa. My hubby is a UK citizen. I was called by gerrys on the 29th April (more than 30 working days later) to get my finger prints scan done again since they messed it up....idiots..... :x

So i reapplied again on the 5th May and was thus provided with a new tracking number.

as a result my application went back to the bottom of the que. So 60 working days from 5th May for my spouce visa will come to end on the 5th Aug......hopefully after that i can expect some good news....

as u can see....people from Karachi have to wait much much longer than ISB or LHR or Mirpur....i dont know why....perhaps it politics beaurecracy or something.

were u ever called for fingerprints scan again? was anyone from karachi ever called for this reason?

OK GUYS IVE GOT THE REFUSAL NOTICE IT SAYS:


You have submitted a letter from your father in law as evidence of accomadation in the UK. You have not provided any evidence to indicate that mortgage commitments are being met. I THINK A LETTER FROM THE MORTGAGE COMPANY WOULD BE GOOD FOR PROOF???). I am not satisfied that this accomadation is available to you as claimed or that is it secure. Therefore on the balance of probability i am not satisfied that you will be adequately accommadated in the UK without recourse to public funds. Paragraph 281 (iv) of HC395.

You state that your sponsor will maintain and accommodate you in the UK. However, you have failed to provide satisfactory evidence of this claim. your sponsor works as a self- employed mini cab driver and he claims to earn £850 per month (net). I SAID I EARNT £1200.00 MONTHLY I DONT KNOW WHERE £850 CAME FROM???. He has submitted a letter from his accountants. However, the accountants themselves have not verified or prepared accounts. As a consequence this letter does not substantiate your sponsors claimed income. The Bank statements submitted for your sponsor show cash deposits but the source of these funds is not substantiated. JUST TO ASK YOU GUYS IF I GET CASH IN HAND AS A TAXI DRIVER HOW AM I MEANT TO PUT MONEY IN THE BANK OBVIOUSLY CASH DEPOSITS????. Your sponsor has no source of income outside of his work as a mini cab driver. He receives no income from friends and family. WHY WOULD I HAVE INCOME FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY??. I an therefore not satisfied that you will be adequately maintained and accommodated in th UK without additional recourse to public funds. Paragraph 281 (iv) (v) of HC395

Hello RM786.....

I have just read your post on the offical verdict...

Coincidently I just posted my reply on the other discussion foum

http://www.immigrationboards.com/viewto ... start=2640

....before I even reading your offical verdict.....and Im quite satisfied that what I suspected came out almost to be accurate........below is my verdict which I have posted in the other post


DW


=============================================


Hi RM786

I do hope the best of luck for you.....do not give up....and when appealing try not to make the same mistakes again.

From the information you have provieded, I will TRY to point out the mistakes you made in your visa application and why the visa officer has refused your wifes visa.

1) Accomodation: I think the visa officer wants to see an accomodation provided by you....not your parents. In all your paper work should have shown that you own the property (morgage or tenant). Otherwise they suspected that eventually you will be claiming some sort of housing benefit or other benefits etc....and your wife may become a burden on the UK benefits scheme.........

2) Bank Statement: I think the visa officer could not find any regular income.....there appeared no proof. It was just plain cash coming in....but from where?.....he needed to see where this income was coming from.....he could not find any employement income...and if its the self-employed income...then he could not identify that either. So he assumed that you can not financially support your wife with out a proper regular income.

The above is my interpretation of what might be stated in the offical visa rejection letter.

Can anyone else support my theory?........

However i do hope the best for you RM786....

keep us all updated on what the actual result letter stated...

Hello RM786

Sorry to hear your wifes visa is refused. It is more difficult to submit finace related papers when you are self employed, especially when you are earning cash in hand. I think the best thing to do is, if you have completed a tax return form for the year, to ask the inland revenue if they can provide you with the summary letter that gives details of your earning for the last year, and the amount of tax you have paid. If not then get your accountant to draw you up a cash flow statement. You need to clearly show your turnover, expenses, tax, and net profit for each short period.
In regards to the morgage, I am in the same situation as you, and what my farther provided was a copy of the original lettr when getting the house re-morgaged and more importantly, bank statements which show the morgage is being paid.
Hope this is of some help, and good luck.


Btw. Does anybody know how long a person has to arrive to the UK form the date the visa is given?

HI Irritatedsponsor,

Thankyou for your informative reply. the thing is i havent yet done my tax return but im going to get on the case 2mro have a talk with my accountant and get things moving. with the mortgage side of things, i will get my dads mortgage statements clearly saying they are being paid and also a letter from the mortgage provider. Inshallah with all supporting evidence BHC might overturn the refusal.

As regards to when you have to travel after your visa is issued. It was 28 days, but recently i heard from some1 that it had gone down to 18 days but im not sure how true this is.
