Re: Visit visa for Mother-Please advise how it will be successful

Hello Why not? You just need to show that she has strong attachments to her countries. So is more likely to go back at the end of her visa. There is always a risk when you apply for a visitor visa especially the first time. So make sure you read the forum and document the application as much as poss...

Re: Bringing my family to UK

Hello Yes, he can, but it's a bad idea. If someone is in Italy with a permanent residence there, it's better to keep going and apply for Italian citizenship rather than starting a new immigration route in a soon non-EU country. So the idea in itself is not brilliant. If he comes here to the UK and s...

Re: can you remain in the uk while waiting a decision?

Hello,

Yes, if she has a Certificate of Application in hand, it's fine. Some can even work with these certificates (if they mention right to work). So she doesn't need to leave the UK. But she must stay in the UK (no travel abroad) while her case is considered.

Re: Can i bring my parents in uk as a visitor or any EEA route

You don't give enough details.

You cannot sponsor them yourself for sure. Your uncle may or may not be able to do it.

Re: Parents visit expire feb 2021 cannot go back due to medical reason

No family ties back home Was the visa granted without ties back home? The Adult Dependent Relative visa is really hard and you can end up in a difficult situation with your parents at your charge but technically without status in the UK (this means no NHS or other help). So please tread carefully h...

Re: EUSS Residence Card

I spoke recently with someone who applied for EUSS card and received it later without them taking away the EEA card. Thanks for confirming! OK, then it's possible to keep the card. Now, on the cautionary side, I would assume the EE RC that was allowed to be kept is now cancelled and invalid? Kept o...

Re: EUSS Residence Card

I don't know if it is cancelled. In the sense that EEA and EUSS are not mutually exclusive. Many people have a valid status under both. It's not like going from Tier 4 to Tier 2 where the Tier 2 means your Tier 4 status is over. So, with this rational, I think it's possible that both cards stay vali...

Re: Can the immigration authorities refuse my application?

Here is the official website where you can find information about student visas to Australia: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-finder/study There is no point collecting all reasons why a visa can be cancelled. Try to find out if you are eligible and if not or what can you do...

Re: EUSS Residence Card

They don't take away the EU Card. You keep it. Are you absolutely sure? Have you done this yourself? I have the vague memory of reading you do have to send it back (but can't remember where.) If you leave and return before the end of the year, that's fine. You don't need the EUSS card until 2021. W...

Re: Switching to tier 2 visa from tier 4 within the UK with an expired passport

There is a big mess with South Africa diplomatic representation in the UK. I heard their website is down, calls are not answered... etc. I have read some articles about it. That means many South Africans are stuck with expired passports and unable to apply for anything. Because indeed, the Home Offi...

I understand the upset and the disappointments, but the sponsor who played a role in the immigration process do...

Re: Travelling with an EEA Residence Card after Brexit

Unfortunately, the answer to this might only come empirically, when some people start trying getting into the UK after January 1st 2021 on "expired but extended by virtue of EUSS applications" EEA RCs, and seeing what happens. Again, I do no try to do this myself or advise anyone to try to do it. T...

Re: Bank account on COA as non eu

Hello Yes, I have seen a case where a bank opened an account with a CoA at the condition that the card is shown once the application is concluded. So, it should be fine but the conditions are probably different from bank to bank. If you are referred by a client / family with an account in that bank,...

The issue is not the £6000. Going to London, for 2 people, if you book £1000 flights x 2, then £300/night hotel, you don't even have enough money to eat out. The other day I was in London for a work emergency, then I stayed too late and decided to spend the night in an average hotel paid by my emplo...

Hello Please don't post your name around forums when you ask questions. We don't need that.

Insurance is not mandatory but it always looks good in a visa application. For my family, we always ensured there is a comprehensive insurance in the application. If Covid is covered, it's a bonus indeed. As the for the money, the harm is done now. I don't know how you can take back what you have st...

Hello Alice This situation has been left to rot for too long and a solution needs to be found. For immigration purposes, if they ask for a signature from the father, you won't be able to talk your way out of it by telling them your story. You probably need to see a solicitor specialised in family la...
