1. There is not enough detail in terms of course programme, content, detail of results submitted and duration to when the second set of results was submitted for me to deduce the merit of the appeal. On paper though it seems that it would have had a chance of success. 2. Again without site of the pa...

chakra, 1. Your Indian passport would be invalid effective the date of your acquisition of British Citizenship. By extension it would no longer be a valid travel document so your query is moot. 2. AFAIK the INA (US Immigration Act) allows you to use a valid visa in an expired passport along with a n...

when i enter the usa, what happenes if they deny my access? Depends on why you have been denied entry. You could be put on the next flight back home or at worst locked up overnight in jail pending your flight being organised - the latter is usually for expedited removal on grounds of fraud/ misrepr...

Overstays of more than 1 year lead to a 10 year ban from the US....you can get a waiver but this requires you to demonstrate extreme hardship to your US citizen spouse/kids. For this reason waivers are very rare. Students are unlikely to get the ban since they have D/S on their I-94 unless an immigr...

Best approach is to take a short term say 1-2 year view then a long term view say 5+ years in terms of where you want to live. Economic factors tend to determine this i.e. where can you both be in employment/ self employment. Your marriage in either country would be recognised in the other. The citi...

I presume the op's spouse has some sort of discretionary type residence permit of limited duration i.e. it has an expiry date. Depending on what basis this was granted it may be of several months to several years duration e.g. 3 years. Mortgage providers have differing policies on the immigration st...

maxima, Providing all required information is the wisest course to take in immigration matters - the position in all relevant legislation is that if anything is a 'material fact' then it must be declared e.g. your marriage/s. You only need to see examples on this forum where 'minor' misrepresentatio...

The immigration rules do not enable you to switch in country to HSMP dependent - you would have to return home and apply for HSMP dependent EC. Make sure you carry the appropriate documentation.

There are two parts to this: 1. The marriage - contact your local registrar or relevant religious person if applicable on the necessary requirements. The Home Office will have to authorise your spouse to get married by way of a Certificate of Approval. 2. Your spouse changes visa from student to spo...

Certify:

1. bio data page.

2. UK visa/ residence permit page.

3. Any extension of validity dates if such is not on the bio data page.

4. Any visa, entry and or exit stamps to your home country or country where you have met your wife as this is useful to show your relationship is subsisting.

On the presumption that the OP may be in the UK on an appropriate visa category then it is possible to switch status on form FLR (IED).
