Hi Ashar401,

Thanks for your info.

It seems you have given bio-metric on Nov-05-2012 but not on 20-October-2012 from earlier posts as shown below.Confused. Please confirm your exact application timeline details.

ashar401 wrote:@ La,

I did receive the letter to maintain funds in the account as per new rules.
and therefore maintained funds in the bank account till I got the confirmation on visa.

No-dependents along with the application.

Hope this helps.
la wrote:Congrats for your visa.

Before your visa approval , did you receive any query / interview call / new rules change letter from UK BA which most of the applicants received in March 2013.

Did you maintain the funds in third party account UK? did you maintain the funds till approval? Do you have any dependents applied along with you?


Sorry to ask more questions - but this would definitely help lot of people here to understand processing times.

Hi
I received a interview letter for end of may, they do not ask any documents,
at the time of application I only provide satetment, third party afidavir and solicitor's letter etc.
SO what you people suggest should I prepare the Business plan etc or what?

hello

this was the change on 31st jan

Over the next 4 weeks, we will be writing to all applicants who applied before 31 January 2013 to you to explain how the changes will affect you and what steps you will need to take to continue your application. We may need additional information from you to process your application.

We may ask you to:

provide additional information, for example business plans and evidence of market research, to confirm the genuineness of your application; and
demonstrate that you continue to have access to the funds ahead of them being invested in a UK business. You may have moved money into your business in the meantime. If so, you will need to provide the business accounts or accountant certificate showing that you have invested the funds in the business, together with the updated evidence of any remaining monies to make up your full investment.


so that mean u need to prepare for this try getting the papers done i mean statment and affidavite in new affidavite put an other line that money will be available to u until its been used in the business in uk

plus business plan also im also trying to make one even though its stupid for asking this stupid things now as first of all my studies finished in octuber applied for tier 1 in december after that i got so many thing in mind what to to do but dont know what they want as still i can invest until i know whats going on with the visa

u know what i think u did a bit mistake to go for tier 1 u could have got admisiion in uni for further stay anyway

i read the guidance u can add the time of appeal in the ilr but u have to submit the case referance in the application

so what u do as bussiness in uk or planning to do it

Hi

Dnt agree with gardazi76 that as u r approaching to 10 years so u shud hve taken admission to uni
UNi wud hve cost u more normal fee is 14000 and maintenance as well
So no point to pay such a huge amount to cover ur few months of 10 years

ANd more above u experienced as well that they took almost near a year r so u wud hve paid 14 or 15000 in the mean time aso I appreciate that u took entrepreneur step

Visa refused

Post by jeez » Sun Apr 21, 2013 7:12 pm

Applied on 23, Oct, 2012.

My Application is refused on the basis of following points:

1) Self employed letter was not attached.

Answer: I have attached original welcome letter of HM Revenue and customs as self-employed, now you see how silly temporary workers are.

2) Confirm the name of each third party and their contact details, including their full address including postal code, land-line phone number and any email address.
Case worker said, the letter you have provided from Halifax does not confirm all of the above as listed at paragraph 41-SD (a)(i).

Answer: I have provided third party information on the declaration document, as bank cannot provide this details. However, bank letter from third party shows his balance, name and full address clearly mentioned including bank statement.

3)One or more contracts showing trading, the contract you supplied does not give the telephone number of the other party involved and you therefore do not meet the requirements at paragraph 41-SD(c)(iv) of the Immigration rules.

Answer: I have applied on 23rd Oct, 2012 and at the time contact number was not required because rules changes after 31 January, However I have provided all business details but telephone number was missing. I am going in appeal; I will provide land-line number in trading contract.

Please suggest me more points which make my appeal successful, all type of comments are welcome.

Thanks,
Jeez

Contact number was to be mentioned even if you applied before 31 Jan 13. It is in the guideline from the very first day (5 April 13)

UKBA

Post by roshanvsn » Mon Apr 22, 2013 3:30 pm

Hi guys,
today my solicitor received a call from UKBA to re-submit the Company appointment report, he submitted that on email and they replied immediately that they have received it. Does anybody has the same scenario, if yes how long does it take to get the result out?

For refusal reason like:
contact details are not fully given e.g. land line number, email etc

One can appeal on the basis of '2009 Evidential Flexibility policy'. Though it is related to solicitors/barristers but it could make us to understand how it works.
