Can't really say anything until you explain clearly what was in the refusal letter, as the letter contains summarized resons for refusal against each refusal. Please specify and some one might be able to help.

I think you have good chances of getting a visitor visa, so put your head down and focus on that application only for the time being. Too many applications are rejected just because of inadequate research and planning.

Here is an insider view from me. I have lived all my life in the UK and I have been working for the last 7 years. Currently I am in a management position.

Hi nightrider, so far what i've found about refusal no matter what the reason is, is that appeals take much much longer and their outcome is that either ECO decision was right or wrong based on provided documents. Further what i've found that ECO does not ask for any document even if applicant can ...

Hey Riff or anyone who can help! If a visitor visa is rejected, how soon after can you re-submit a new application. Can it be done straight away or do you have to wait some time. Thanks No, there is no waiting period, though I would advise not to reapply again, adrenaline pumping, fists flying. Lay...

Then, I will definitely prefer to apply a Visistor's visa for her. But would my recent visits to Pakistan affect the case? Secondly, how can we assure the visa officer that she would be going back to Pakistan before her visa expiry? First of all, applying for one type of visa will destroy total cha...

@ shaby

They do and you cant go there without an appointment. Wait for the call. Alternatively, you could always pop down there and play a bluff by telling them you received a call. I am sure, they will let you in.

Its a tricky situation. How will you be able to prove that she is dependent on you with your brother abd sisters living in the same city as her?

Can you prove money sent to her since she is dependent on you for a considerable period of time?
