Re: Question about Bank Statement / Income for Student Visa Application

Just to get back on topic.

The student has not yet selected a University or course yet - he is planning well ahead for 2018 entry, hence the creation of this thread...and he just wants to get his paperwork correct, and not rejected because he had too much or too little funds in his bank account etc

I've only ever helped out people with Visit visas so student visa is new territory for me! With respect, you should not be giving your family amateur immigration advice, let alone via this forum.

Re: Older dependent relatives

Could try Adult Dependant Relative visa, but it's very expensive and comes with an almost 100% chance of refusal. AIUI, BOC isn't worth anything unless stateless and as such she should not have registered with a GP as a visitor, and reading between the lines here it sounds like she have spent long ...

Relatives Family Visitor Visitor refused - How to Appeal?

Hi.

I believe an appeal has to be made within 14 days but there is no guidance/links/info on the refusal notice on how to appeal the decision?

Can anyone point me in the right direction regarding how to start off & submit an appeal? Many thanks as ever.

Re: How many visa applications reqd for family of 4?

Thanks-that makes sense

But having created 1 account & application & having submitted it without realising we had to generate 3 others from it, its too late to go back & do this as you cannot amend it once submitted.

Start again from scratch?

How many visa applications reqd for family of 4?

For a UK family visitor visa.

2 adults / 2 under 5s.

4 separate applications? With 4 separate email addresses to create 4 accounts? Or will one main application suffice?

Re: Asylum seekers & driving licences...

So the 12 months begins from the day he arrived here.

The fact that he's been here 3 years, means that he will now have to go down the provisional licence/theory & practical test route.

Thanks Amber.

The DVLA have said yes he can, for 12 month from the 'date of residency' providing he has an International driving licence. But she did not kno...
