Hi,

I do think you will be getting a good reply soon. It will be before 30 October.

If God's willing it should be very good news for you.

Don't loose hope.

Take care

Thanks

Hi D_W,

Honestly i know they have their proccessing deadline of 120 working days, but your just letting them walk all over you. Ask your husband hes in the UK. Ask him to contact your mp, tell him to tell your mp that this is causing so much inconvenience and you are missing out on married life tell him its stressing you both out and demand your mp to do something about it. I dont think they will process something they dont have to straight away. unless they feel pressurised they will not be issueing you with a visa very soon.


Thanks

Hi

Well well ......

Tuesday last week the status changed to passport ready for collection..
Wednesday they phoned to say come on Thurdsay to collect your documents.

Thursday my hubby went to collect and found that they had refused it..

Because of not up to date statement. No evidence of accommodation is paid for.

I have to appeal. ECO in uk. Can I do it for my hubby in UK. Send Appeal documents. How long does it take???? Please help??? anyone.

I am so depressed. They could have asked for these documents rather then refusing it.

Many thanks

hi t_a786,

Very sorry to hear about your husband's refusal. I was in the same position as you a month ago. If you can try to get your husband to give his original refusal notice as you will need this when you appeal. they are 3 papers get him to sign the last 1. If someones
coming to the UK from pakistan they can bring the papers or get your hubby to post recorded delivery. Next step get all your evidence together to counter the ECO's claims. also you might like to visit IAS they can take your case on for free if you meet requirements. you have to have less then £3,000 in you account. Also you need to fill in your appeal form. If you do the appeal on your own then you can write a letter explaining what evidence you have provided and why they should overturn the decision. Also kindly ask them if they can overturn the refusal and issue the visa based on new evidence. Ill advise you to send your appeal to uk ECO. rather then the AIT. As there is a chance they will overturn the earlier decision and issue the visa. Also Batleykhan can give you great advice as he helped me alot, but hes taking a break at the moment for the holy month of ramzan, but im sure hell be doing a few posts. Also im sure hell be happy to help you. If theres anything your not sure about do ask me as i have been through this.

Sorry to hear about your visa, You would require original refusal notice, Complete AIT-2 form, supporting documents to challenge ECO's Decesion...

You have to complete the above and send it to AIT or BHC london within 28 days... I would recommend that you send it to BHC london writing an appeal grounds letter for attention of the Entry Clearence Manager...

After your appeal is recieved by the BHC london, the ECM will look at the appeal grounds(AIT-2 Form) and if convinced overturn the refusal...This process can take atleast 4-6 weeks... If your appeal is not successful ECM will prepare the documentation and forward the case to AIT who will inform you about the hearing date, which can take upto 4-6 months...

I would recommend you prepare your appeal very carefully, There are not many solicitors who can do this simple thing properly.... You can take advice from UKIAS, personal recommendation " Mr. Batleykhan"..

Best of luck, Take Care
Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting...

Hi,

My husband applied on 28th April 2009. I sent my 6 moths statements, 6 moths Wage slips, Employee contract, bills past three months.

They refused the visa on 8th may 2009, but didnt give papers to my hubby until 19th August. They took 82000 rupees and didnt have the curtasy to write a letter to ask for information.

If i were you make sure have your bank statements right and accommodation and wage must be clear on your statements.

Bythe way wait is 4 months or more.

Do it soon as.

Many thanks

hi t_a 786

i cant believe they took so long to give the passport back....its disgusting...you should contact your local MP, and tell him the situation and ask him to write a letter asking them to over turn the decision immidietly...its ridiculous!!!!!

Sorry to read about your situation. It's really disheartening to think that our fate may already have been decided while we are wondering if they have even started working on our application at all!

Goes to show that the delay is not in the processing time on the UKBA's part, rather it is due to the lethargy of the system which takes over once the decision is made! :(
