Tier1 General Dependent visa applicants from Pakistan

Post by razian97 » Fri Jan 07, 2011 3:47 pm

I would like to invite all applicants, to share and discuss there experience for tier1 general or HSMP dependent visa applications from Pakistan.
many thanks.


I have arranged following documents for my tier1 general dependent visa applications.
covering letter
job letter from employer
salary slips
bank statement of three months maintenance funds 3000 pounds
Tenancy agreement
my passport's main pages and visa page photo copies ,verfied and attested from royal mail post office
mobile phone bills to show proof of communication
emails print outs
greeting cards.
marriage photos
NIKAH NAMA Urdu and English attested from foreign ministry and notary public
family certificate from NADRA.
NADRA nic cards copies
covering letter from dependent
B form from NADRA.
TB test screening from nayab lab.
passports of dependants.
and APPLICATION FORM.

two photo copies sets of all the above documents with application form.


I have arranged inspection report from a letting agent.
NADRA family certificate is issued FOR a family.it proves that marriage is subsisting and valid.its a powerful proof for your dependants.family certificate contains husband,wife and children's bio data in Urdu and English with NADRA id card numbers.
NADRA B FORM is only for children's to proof date of birth.if you have family certificate ,than it is not necessary to attach B form.
but I have attached both of them.

sponsorship undertaking form is not a requirement for tier 1 dependent visa applicants,it is for British nationals spouse dependent visa applicants.

ONE of main REASON of VISA refusal for Pakistanis in British embassy is that ''MARRIAGE SUBSISTING'' point.
to prove marriage is subsisting and continuing,only nikah nama is not enough.we have to prove that after NIKAH or marriage,that marriage is continuing .
so that's why ,we should arrange and show B FORM OR FAMILY CERTIFICATE.
and also include,
phone bills
greeting cards
emails,
photos,
etc etc.
although all the above documents are not listed in UKBA requirement for dependent visa,but as every one know, Entry clearance OFFICERS in Islamabad and Abu Dhabi have there own mind and way of assessment ,so try your best to not leave any weakness in your application and than rest of leave to ALLAH tala.

if your dependants are in Pakistan than you have to apply from Pakistan.you can not apply for them in UK while they are in Pakistan.

There is absolutely no requirement to supply main applicants payslips when applying for a dependent visa.
Do not send me PM's with specific questions - post question in the open forum so others can also benefit from the answers.

yes you are right.
but you got visa from south Africa.there are big circumstantial and attitude differences between south Asian British embassies and south Africa. ENTRY CLEARANCE OFFICERS in India, Pakistan,srilanka, Bangladesh,they treat applications not as like in South Africa,some time they ask for documents which are not required in UK border agency policy guidance book.they refuse visa applications without any solid reason,like payslips,tenancy agreement,relationship.etc etc. that's why every one try to provide documents which are not required and try to proof himself or herself true as much as they can.

B form is birth form and normally it is in the language the country you were born in. you should have it.

I do not see why one should have any communication evidence when one can provide marriage certificate (nikah nama), wedding invitation cards, wedding video and photos etc. I think its a bit over the top.

I will be apply for my wife to be's visa in May 2011 as a dependent from Pakistan and I will be providing the following:

- Visa Application Form
- Copies of my passport and visa
- bank statements showing funds for last 3 months
- mortgage documents of my house in the UK
- an electricity and a gas bill ( online printouts as I have paperless billing)
- her passport
- Marriage certificate (nikah nama, notarized etc)
- Video and Photos of marriage
- invitation cards of marriage
- A reference letter from company where I work and might be some payslips


i think that should be enough me thinks.

INSPECTION REPORT is from letting agent or property dealer.it is also not necessary and not required from UKBA, but you should attach if you are living in a shared accommodation.
cover letter is like a sponsor letter from main applicant who is in UK or main migrant.write your all details about your application and documents you have provided in this cover letter.

Hi razian97,
Is the tenancy agreement is enough if it is on my own name or I have to make available the inspection report too?

Looking forward for the covering letter template.
