Re: b1/b2 visit visa maximum stay

it is very confusing that what is the maximum stay on visit visa is it 6 months or 180 days?? While it's true that you are normally permitted to enter the US for up to 6 months on a B1/B2 visa, the actual number of days you are permitted to stay for a given visit is what's recorded on your electron...

Re: Deduction of passport fees indicator of approval maybe?

Deduction of the passport fee is not an indication of naturalisation application approval. If you applied for both together, and your naturalisation application is refused then you would forfeit the passport application fee. Both AN and passport application fee are taken upfront, but the passport ap...

Re: Long Term Schengen Visa

Yes, reading the next response from the OP, I'd say a lot would depend on the context and what is meant by business development - business visit or employment? I've used a schengen visa for attending meetings and participating in knowledge sharing workshops as part of global programmes of work in th...

Re: Lost in the system - Schengen Tourist vs. Business Visa

A visa for a family member of eu citizen is also issued as a schengen visa type C. It depends how the border officer interpret the remarks sections. Crimbo111 has both in the remark section which is not the normal case. Yes, agree it would depend on the interpretation of the remarks. In case it hel...

Hi All, I am an Indian passport holder having a valid UK visa till April 2019. I have looked online, but I was not able to find any documentation regarding this, so hence my query here. Is it possible for me to get a long-term Schengen visa, say for 1-2 years? I would need to travel frequently with...

Re: Re-schedule: Life in the UK Test examination

I'm just a little confused about the bit in bold. If I change the appointment date more than three days before the date of the examination, I'll be charged another £50? I must cancel it exactly three days prior? I believe that was a mistake in quoting what's on the website. You should click on the ...

Re: Re-schedule: Life in the UK Test examination

If I book this test today, and then need to change the date somewhere down the line, how many times can this be done, and at what cost? You can, with no additional cost so long as you reschedule before 7 days of the scheduled test date. I cancelled mine and re-booked a new test at a test centre clo...

Re: Mistake by the Nationality Checking Service

Personally I don't see how that answer you refer to on the NCS client care record can really affect your application. The NCS advisor & whoever they spoke to over the phone, appear to have taken the stance that anyone who entered the UK to claim asylum would have entered illegally, without the right...

Re: Mistake by the Nationality Checking Service

Should I be worried about these mistakes, or is this a non-issue? Do these documents actually get sent to the Home Office with my application, or are they exclusively for me and NCS to keep a record? I am guessing the wrong D.O.B is not an issue since they see my passport and correct D.O.B on appli...

Re: UK ILR and Pakistani Passport to visit USA visa process

I had couple of years in between 2007-2009 which were without visa. I'd suggest that you a search the embassy website, to see whether this is likely to pose you a problem before you apply. I can't remember all the questions, but there is a section with a long list of questions related to security a...

Re: Lost previous passport 10 years ago. Should I state this

I checked my passport issue date again, and actually it was issued in 2008, not 2006, so only 8 years ago. Does this affect anything at all, or can I still safely ignore the lost passport prior to this one? Another question. How do you guys attach the passport photo? Is pritt stick sufficient, or d...
