Re: DESPERATE FOR ADVICE

People make comments on posts that they have an answer for, and not on ones they don't. Perhaps no one had an answer as to how you could prove whatever you needed to prove, and were not being rude. Plus, as has been pointed out, this is free advice from people who are under no obligation to go find ...

Re: UK criminal record and family life

You seem to be a serial offender Gabriel, why should the UK HO allow you to remain in the country? You've already cost a fortune in prison and court costs and police time etc. If you were in prison for 4 years and 8 months, then your sentence must have been considerably longer that, making it a pret...

Re: USA Driving License in UK?

I can tell you for fact as my wife came to the UK with a Vietnamese license. She was allowed to drive in the UK for one year from the day she arrived. Insurance was no bother, and I bought her a fiesta ST for her first car, had a tracker on it for the first year but not this year. She had only got h...

Re: Visa extension refusal - Home Office error!

Well, it was an obvious oversight on the HO's side, so you would always win the case. I'm sure this decision has now made your wife so relieved and dispersed any strain it was putting on your relationship.

Great news and I am happy for you both. Relax now.

Re: ILR Fees: Employer Issue

Get a loan from a bank and pay that back. It might cost you a few percent on top, but if you don't have the cash to hand, that would seem a sensible way. Also, you should not bite the hand that feeds you, if you loose your job, it'll be harder for you to apply for ILR. So, keep your powder dry, suck...

Re: ESTA REFUSE

Well, if you do go to the US embassy and apply there, you will need to take overwhelming evidence that you have a reason to return to the UK. i.e. you have a wife and child, or a property that you own, run a business. Something more than just a job with a note from your boss saying they have given y...

Re: ESTA REFUSE

I would say that is highly likely. You are on a black list now, and the ESTA is applied for on-line, there is no place to explain a mistake. The US are concerned about people absconding, or of going there with the intent to do harm, and as you apparently tried to cheat once, you're a person who cann...

Re: ESTA REFUSE

You will not get a visa. You have burned the bridge, the US immigration do not consider if you might have made a mistake, they look at what you did and take that as intentional, regardless.

They are strict on immigration, especially from Muslim countries.

Re: urgent help needed parent visit visa

I have seen this very same reason for refusal 3 times in a short time on this board. Each time the applicants think that taking care of a baby does not count as work, but the visa is for no work, paid or unpaid. It is really stupid that this in there, grandmas love to look after their grandchild, bu...

Re: Visa extension refusal - Home Office error!

That is confusing, one line says they will look into it, and below it says they have upheld your complaint which would indicate they agree with you. I think they normally ask for the BRP card back, so if they have not made the decision, when they do they have the card already and it saves time. But ...

Parking tickets are not going to affect your application, and would not even be considered especially if you have paid them, so no you don't have to declare them.

The alternative to £18,600 income per year is £62,500 savings. I think you will need to get back here asap, prove you have suitable accommodation and meet financial criteria. From what you have said, I'm afraid it looks like you won't be in a position to do this in time, perhaps your husband should ...
