I'd like to thank to those who a...

Family Visit

Hey All, I have a quick question. My dad is gonna visit me and he'll apply for a family visit visa. I was on ILR but I've been naturalised recently. So how I shall write about the invitation letter? Since I don't have a UK passport yet, do I need to send the ILR page and financial support documents?...

Hey there,

I had a situation like that. But I lost my passport 6 months later I got my ILR. So I applied a new passport from my embassy and got ILR again stamped.
That's my experience and it's slightly different than yours. Any seniors can comment on it?

Hope the best for you...

Hi All,

Just have a quick question. I've applied on 18th of April via NCS. from the royal mail tracking number it looks like it's delivered on 23rd April. I've received the acknowledgement letter dated 28th April.

My date of application is 23rd ? Right?

Thanks a lot!

Hey manyonisland,

I've called Home Office, they said it's fine. The only thing is I didn't ask the thing Jambo mentioned before which is it's a very small Ltd company, I don't think he has any employees apart from himself and his wife. But it's a legal, legitimate Ltd company so it should be fine...

Thanks Jambo.

1 more question. I have a friend who has a Ltd company. He knows me for 7 years but he's in uk for the last 1 year or so and he's currently director of his Ltd company. Will that do it for the referee?

Thanks a lot!

Hey Jambo,

Why do you think so? I'll call UKBA today in anycase. I've thought it might be ok for director of vat registered company or LTD company.

or

Bank official. Since he's registered with FSA.

He's working at Goldman Sachs. That should be ok?

Well, to be honest I know my dentist for only 1.5 years and GP sadly, I wasn't registered for a long time. But it's quite common they don't wanna sign :/

Referee Question

Hey All,

I am arranging my referees. I have potentially someone as a deputy of a department. A company I used to work. Would that fit into manager of VAT registered company or manager of LTD company?

Thanks in advance..


PS: Or a supervisor will be ok like a manger too?

Quick Question about NCS

Hey everyone,

I have a quick question about applying through Ncs. Do they give you a reference number for posting so you can track when your application arrives to Ukba ?

Thanks
