1st Contact Visas www.1stcontactvisas.com Experience was good, expensive, but I got the visa so... I told them my concerns and let them decide what to do and let me know before applying.

Couple of my p60s were having name differences. e.g. My passport name is FirstNameKumar Surname, but p60 contains FirstName...

Re: Rejection due to difference in names(If Notary inIndia)

HO didn't consider self sworn affidavit this time and in rejection letter it was stated that a letter from awarding institution would be expected ins...

Re: Rejection due to difference in names(If Notary inIndia)

In my case, I submitted one which I got from India.

I think it doesn't make any difference where you get Notarized Affidavit from. The thing is in my HO didn't consider self sworn affidavit. But still I would say get it from UK if you are here.

Re: Rejection due to difference in names

Thanks for replying. I have used a notorized affidavit for all my previous WP applications and that worked.

Re: Policy Guidance

Hi Cadeaux, Well how urgent could you get more than this!!! Surprised and also lost all hopes of getting visa in near future. I wonder if they send our applications to MI6 -> FBI -> KGB and back for checks. It certainly is going to take time. :) But thank you very much for replying and hope the best...

Re: Policy Guidance

Hi Piyush,

As I have seen with previous posts about UT, HO takes about a week to process UT and send documents back, if considered.

I wish you all the very best... and thanks for replying.

Just called up HO to know status of my application. Even after their automated system say T-1 applicants can know the status if applied before 6 weeks, they denied giving any status. Also it was mentioned that they only provide status if 14 weeks have passed since applied.

Hi Shaz999, You can only claim points for ONE degree. So don't reapply with more than ONE. Normally application is submitted with the degree fetching highest possible points. In your case it seems to be BSc. But as it is NOT listed on points calculator, your degree needs to be endorsed through a bod...

For urgent treatment from NARIC it may cost upto £200 to £300 but you will get result within 48 hrs. A...
