ok i my local Mp's immigration assistant contacted me today with some news about my visa, they said the embassy told her deffered my visa on the 27th aug (exactly 12 weeks after I applied) for further checks, I asked why did they defer it and not give me decision after 12 weeks, she said maybe its because its your second app, nevertheless they said they will move it on too the next stage (which probably means the decision) in 3-4 weeks from now. please remember me in your prayers I pray that inshallah everyone recieves some positive new soon

Add to the above the fact that there was relocation activity going on at UK Hub in London which processes settlement visa's from Pakistan and you have the reasons for the massive delays....
Hi,

Its good to hear that people on this forum have contacts within BHC, atleast we can get the truth for a change.

By the way how long have you been waiting for the visa and did you apply in Karachi.
Hi Bazzy,

My wife and 2 yr old son's application was made in Karachi at Gerry's on 13th July so it's been almost 2 months.

my hubby applied from Karachi on 28 April, they refused his visa on 8th May 2009. But they didn't tell us anything until 19th August my hubby got his Passport back.

We were so disappointed as they took so long to give it back when they had refused the visa since May.

I submitted his appeal on 1st of Sep 09. Will see.

They didn't even bother to write a letter or reply to emails for more info. they just refused it.

We are so disappointed. His TB certif. will run aout soon. As he got it done in March 2009.

I can't believe it. 3000 rupees again. and waiting!!!!!! :x

I don't know what to expect anymore.

:(

For an appeal to succeed you will have to provide outstanding information as why high commision should overturn their decision and give you the visa. Unless nothing new has been submitted I would not bother with appeal. I did an appeal and it is now over 1.5yrs and my wife is still in Pakistan, if I had to go through the process again I would have sumbitted a new fresh application with the info they refused your visa.
Also, I would never appeal from Pakistam again I made thia mistake. I would have appealed from the UK as this is where your appeal application will be sent, so why not apply from the UK in the first place but then it does cost more money.

The visa was approved on 8th September. However, it is unlikely that the Mr ***** or his wife will yet be aware of this. This is because the decisions on this kind of case are made in the UK and the paperwork now needs to find its way back to Mr *****’s wife back in Pakistan. However, you can let them know of the positive outcome and that they can expect the visa to come through shortly.

Baz,
My wife applied on the 12th JUNE so its been more less exactly 3 months. dont know if it would have taken longer had i not contacted my MP.

Also got to wait for staff at Gerry's to phone my wife so she can go collect the passport -
I was hoping to bring my wife back with me as im in pakistan at the moment - had to attend a funeral was very sad and depressed but this has cheered me up alot !!!
knowing Gerry's they will take at least 2-3 weeks to inform my Mrs for collection.....

Hi Was,

Did you need anything from your Mrs before you contacted your MP. As i will do that if i dont here anything by end of this month.

Did she have to give you some sort of consent to allow the MP to investigate this matter

You have to send your MP a permision form so they can forward this onto the home office to get information. If the applicant is in pakistan they will only accept copies that have been posted or faxed directly to them from Pakistan.

Permission Form



Name …………(NAME OF THE APPLICANT)

Passport Number ……………………………………………………

Home Address …………………………(ADDRESS OF THE APPLICANT)…………………………….


………………………………………………………………….


…………………………………………………………………..



I have instructed my Member of Parliament, Mr (INSERT YOUR MP's NAME HERE) MP, to act on my behalf in this matter and would be grateful if you would send any correspondence or documents to the address of my MP.

I am happy for the information to be given to my husband (INSERT YOUR NAME HERE) of (INSERT YOUR ADDRESS HERE)




Signed ………………………(SIGNED BY THE APPLICANT)


Date ……………………………………………………………..

Congrats Was794!! I have contacted my own MP to chase up the applcaition as my wife applied on the 11th June (1day b4 urs). We had the same "Guy at UKBA" contact my MP earlier, so inshallah he'll have some good news now that my MP is chasing him again.

Any idea how long it took for him to reply back to your MP when you chased it up, after the first email about "please wait 12 weeks..."?
