Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
Well include lots of "evidence of contact" in order to counter any such suggestion. How are the two of you keeping in touch at the moment? The marriage in his country ... you can take pics and add those to the "evidence folder".i keep hearing is visas being refused because they don't believe the relationship is real
You certainly need to include the rental agreement.we currently live with my mum, i am on the rent agreement which i can get a copy of, plus mum will write a letter saying she is happy for us to stay there while we find somewhere & is happy to keep him along with me.
thank you for your kind words, its things like this that give me hope!abbs33 wrote:We were married August 07 in Tirana and had received the visa for him by early November 07.
My hubby was also removed a few years ago, and was honest about this in his application and he gave the embassy all the relevant details to do with this.
My advice to you both is be honest, and be patient! It is a very worrying time but I have heard lots of success stories on this forum with regards to albanians getting visa's.
Keep all phone records, emails, tickets, photos, christmas and valentine cards etc.....It helps if he has a solid job offer in the UK.
He now has a an amercian visa and a schengen so we have been able to travel to other countries.
Please get in touch if you need any help or advice.
It is possible to get a report from your Local Authority, but I think if you document the room sizes yourself, as well as giving details of those that will be living there, if the visa is granted, I would not envisage a problem ... especially if you include a few pics ... to show that the place is in good condition and not just about to fall down!Will i just need the rental agreement, permission from the landlord and to document the room sizes etc myself - or will i need to get some kind of confirmation of this from somewhere?
My husband is Albanian and we are currently appealing our visa refusal, ours was refused back in Febraury because they do not belive we are in a genuine and subsisting relationship, the paperwork you are putting together looks good. Just hope the above wont affect you.26.17.8 Refusals under 320(7B) where the applicant has previously breached immigration law in the UK.
Where the applicant committed an immigration offence in the UK, his future applications will need to be refused for 1, 5 or 10 years after he left the UK, with the exact length of the period depending on how he left.
Assisted Voluntary Return at public expense
Where the applicant left the UK voluntarily but at public expense (e.g. through an Assisted Voluntary Return), then they will have future applications refused for five years, but only if they committed a breach of immigration law before his return.
Where the applicant has returned under the AVRIM (Assisted Voluntary Return for Irregular Migrants) programme, they will, by definition, be an immigration offender, and so should have applications to return refused for five years.
Where the applicant has returned under the VARRP (Voluntary Assisted Returns and Re-integration Programme) scheme, you will need to be satisfied that the applicant has breached UK immigration laws. If they are an immigration offender, they will have future applications refused for five years.
What is removal?
If a person has been removed or deported, then his future applications will be refused for ten years.
However, you need to be satisfied that the applicant was actually removed or deported before applying these provisions.
Remember that making a decision to remove a person (Form IS 141 A part 2 or IS 151B), or issuing a notice identifying him as an immigration offender (IS 151A) do not in themselves mean that the applicant has been removed from the country. It is perfectly possible for someone to leave the country voluntarily after a decision has been taken to remove him, in which case future applications should only be refused for one or five years, not ten.
