Re: Advice for application over 1 year

Anything at all to doubt your good character? They may still be making enquiries.

As it has been over 6 months, you should be able to ask them for an update. If you don't get a satisfactory response, ask your MP to contact the Home Office on your behalf.

Re: First tier tribunal-case dismissed by FTJ.

First of all, how did you come to the UK on a visitor visa for 3 years? :shock:

Secondly, and probably the most important question, why did your entry clearance state that you have a wife and child in Ghana :?:

Re: Love knows no boarders

You're generating a good paper trail, which is a start. There are a few options to remain in the UK, depending on your skills. There's no generic "work visa" any more; Tier 2 General is your best bet if you are highly skilled, even more so if you are skilled in an area which is on the shortage occup...

Re: Clarification

Documents are legalised by the country that issued them. Legalisation provides a way for foreign governments to verify the authenticity of other countries' official documents.

Re: British Citizen applying for oci

You don't seem to have read what I wrote. British Subject is a different form of British nationality, which is specifically why I asked. It is not the same as British citizenship . This is a complex area of the law and one that I am not an expert in, so you will need to wait for someone with more kn...

As said above there is no settlement visa for an ex wife. Your children as British citizens can return to the UK any time they like.

Risky. When did your working holiday visa expire? As you have likely attracted the 10 year citizenship ban, which starts from the date you become legal.

Re: Requesting Residence card after EEA FP visa. Urgent help

FP is not a visa, it is an entry clearance. Even once it expires, your right to live and work in the EU continues as it depends solely on your sponsor. A residence card is optional (but very useful). It doesn't grant or confer any rights itself. You cannot do the biometric enrolment until you have r...
