Re: Family Visitor - Question about Other Close Family membe

1. Do they also need to be entered on the form IMO, you can enter as much names as you can, as long as they fit the definitions of family ''members'' 2. Do I need to ask each of these people for their permission before writing their name and details on the form? You dont have to as it doesn't make ...

Only an asylum caseowner could decide that, based on the credibility of his claim.

You can make your application in my opinion but the date of travel or arrival in the UK must be on or after your 21st birthday. Therefore if a spouse visa application takes 14 weeks, nothing stops you from making your application now(12 weeks to your 21st birthday) you are not under 21 at the date o...

Re: what next after COA

Because that usually isn't the case! Usually the person just fears going back and applying using the easiest...

Yeah you are right. If the passport is still valid for the next six month, I dont think they will raise any eyebrow as to the validity of the passport. The visa will be issued, then its up to the OP if they want to transfer the visa to a new one later or combine 2 passports. I understand that you ca...

You can not have 2 valid passports. The expired one is not valid even though the visas are and they are only valid for travel or anythng else when used with a new valid one. This is incorrect. In South Africa it's perfectly legal to have two valid passports, they don't cancel your old one when appl...

It all depends my brother. The HO are now very sneeky in cases like that. They tend to refuse DL applications in cases like that and advice the applicant to leave the UK on a given date or as soon as possible without issuing a removal direction. In doing that, the HO is avoiding making an ''Immigrat...

I understand the fact that you can barely raise the FLR(O) fee. Having said that, I am of the opinion that you need the help of a solicitor in a case like this.
