Re: Joining family member definition and reapplying for pre-settled status

Thank you both. I am aware that the status is valid until Nov 2024 but there will be a problem when applying for settled status in Nov 2024 as being absent for more than 12 months won't count towards required 5 year's continuous residence. So my question: is reapplying as joining family member an o...

Re: Good character

The problem is the mix and match. I have seen people getting the citizenship and having one of these in the distant past. Taken in isolation, these are not a big issue. But taken together, they could be held against you. It's hard to predict the outcome. Give it a try without overthinking and see wh...

Re: Can i travel to Ireland with current leave in the UK

Hello

Dubin is the capital of Ireland (Republic of Ireland). Republic of Ireland is an EU country such as France, Spain or Germany.

You need a Schengen visa in this case. Your UK residence won't be enough.

Re: Possible Length of Stay in Switzerland, Non-Eu Family Member, 90/180 days

Hello Your understanding sounds right to me. Did they stamp your passport at all? I have never seen a Schengen country bothering a US citizen about the 90 days. When they do it, it's for visa nationals where they can sometimes go through the passport, page by page, and check stamps to see how long t...

Re: Can I travel on Certificate of Naturalisation

Hello If you are at Heathrow with a naturalisation certificate, immigration officers won't refuse you entry. You may spend time at the border as they make their checks but they will let you in. However, no company would allow you to board with that document. Even if they issue a boarding card online...

Re: Good character

Hello The "Good Character" is not clearly defined and kept vague so it allows them great deal of discretion. 1 and 2 are fine. I have seen successful applications with a fine for late filling. As long as it's simply a late filling for which you got a fine, it's ok. 1 case of driving offense, is ok t...

Re: British parents moving to UK with non British biological children

Call Royal Mail. You may have to wait on the phone for a while, but eventually you will talk to someone.

They probably put the mail in another post for collection.

Re: can i be sponsor of my 15 months baby, myself Pakistani citizen and on visit visa

Who sponsored you? Were you sponsored by a UK resident yourself? You can state that you are going to pay for your child trip, this is not the issue. But your application makes me nervous. This is an entire household applying but not everyone together. You apply. Then when you get the visitor visa yo...

Hello

Why didn't you apply together?

Was the baby born when you applied for the visa for yourself? Where is the other parent?

Under 18, they will close their eyes on it. However, they want to see that as soon as you turned 18, you started making demonstrable efforts to regularise your situation including contacting the Home Office.

To respond to your question, I believe that your chances of getting a US visa are very low. You said in your ESTA application that they never refused a visa to you before. Then you said the same to an immigration officer. The immigration officer was your last chance to come clean and correct your mi...
