IMPORTANT !!! Tier 1 (G) Applicants from Pakistan

Post by go2zeeshan2004 » Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:56 pm


Hello Fellows!

I am disappointed though, not being getting response from peoples belonging to Pakistan and applying/or applied for Tier 1 recently in my own created shelter/threads. Still, I feel this is my duty to help peoples, with the most recent info. and updates and I am doing so.

I have applied for Tier 1 (G) from khi-pk on 16th Dec'08 and just come to know by some means that, I might not be getting visa just coz. a slight chng in their (BHC) policy just now. I come to know few peoples being refused visas these days, just for the reason that they (BHC) are not accepting two evidences from the same place (i.e. in (my)case of Previous Earning : Job letter and Payslips). In this way, to be on safe side, u must submit bank statement showing your salary debits for the last 12 months.

So, this is the latest update from myside to all applicants specially applied from pk for Tier1 G to keep their fingers crossed and pray for urself and others too. And if u haven't applied yet, and planning to do so, just beware of this fact and prepare ur case more properly.

GOOD LUCK to everyone...

HOPE TO GET REPLIES here now...

I understand that this practise is alreay been implemented. YOU MUST HAVE EVIDENCE FROM TWO DIFFERENCE SOURCES for your initial application anyway....

Hi go2zeeshan2004

My HSMP EC was rejected in may 2008, appeal is allowed by AIT on 31st october 2008 and now more than 10 weeks passed but I am not contacted by BHC although the email from AIT says that I will be contacted by BHC within 6 weeks from the date of decision i.e 31 october.
I emailed the BHC and wrote them but no response from them, do you have any idea about HSMP cases like this.If yes please share it.
Thanks

Hello and welcome to Nazia,Aanwar and theimmigrant. Good to c u people sharing ur status here.

@ Nazia
Your application took pretty long time for its response Nazia :? This is why, I was asking pakistani applicants to share their experiences here so that others will know that, how much time it can take. I was thinking that my application is taking so long, but after knowing abt u, it looks quite ok, as my application is from khi and on 16th Dec'08. But, don't worry, InshaAllah, u will get a good news soon. Keep praying for urself and others too. GOOD LUCK to you :wink:

@Aanwar
Sir, I have applied from khi on 16th De'08 and still waiting. About status, yes, it is same as ur's, application forwarded to BHC on 16th Dec'08. I personally feel that they are taking quite long these days?Isn't it? Even no verification yet too :? GOOD LUCK to you dear! Keep praying for urself and others 2.

@Theimmigrant
Dear, it looks like that, u have already done ur homework. I think nothing more required in docs from u. Shud there be any discipency in them, I hope, someone from the forum will tell u. About covering letter, I haven't submitted it with my application, as it is not really imp to do so, but do cunsult others as well. GOOD LUCK to you dear.Keep praying for urself and others 2.

Keep posting/updating u all plz and call ur other contacts (pakistani applicants for Tier 1 (G)) here and LETS HELP OTHERS!

Yes you need 2 Oanda print out, ONE of the last of of earning period claim, for example if the earning period claim is 01-01-08 to 31-12-08 then this print out should be dated:31-12-2008 and other is your statement date for maintenence fund...

you also need BIAC points calculator print out, a PDF file is generated at the last step of calculator , YOU NEED PRINT OF THAT PDF.

You can print both of these on any day, Oanda give you option to take print out of previous rate too...

Hi,

Actually I am little bit confuse about the fee of the application. The HSMP Tier 1 visa fee mentioned in Fedex Office Karachi is £600 but the fee mentioned in the application is £750. Can someone please help me out about this misinformation. Do I need to apply Application first along with my passport and all related docs plus £750 fee. and then apply visa wih £600 fee after that. Is it a 2 steps process. Please clear this confusion.

Thanks

Faisal

you are lucky that your bank has agreed to give you a balance maintenance letter even in Pak rupees.

Just get the letter in Pak Rupees and then attach a currency converter printout from Oanda.com.

I hope this will help.

Yepiiiiiiiiiii...Congrats to you AANWAR, great to hear good news from u. GOOD LUCK for future. Now PRAY for rest of us (success). Can you plz, give me details of PREVIOUS earnings that u have submitted? list the docs submitted for this plzzz... What are ur plans now? When u gonna leave?

@Faisal
Faisal, as far as I know, fees for Tier 1 is 600 which is equal to 75000 PKR. where did u see 750 instead of 600? Best thing is to call VAC and ask them that how much I have to pay for my Tier 1 application? They will give u the correct info. Hope that answer ur question. Don't take stress dear, take it easy..GOOD LUCK...Pray for others too..

GOOD LUCK everyone including me..
