I understand where you coming from

i am sorry, but you did not get it right entirely

The new ECO has no problem in joint accounts whatsoever. All he wanted to know is the percentage of share my father has. Had the previous ECO raised this, it would have been easier for me to give them justification.

What would you do if you wanted to park a big amount at an age of 24 when you are away from your parents and nobody with you in a different country??? Nomination was not possbile, hence got my dad as a joint holder.

Agreed that they go by rules, and they should. If that was the case, where was this justification when they refused in the first instance???? Atleast i stood a chance to give them some clarity...now?????? nothing!!! i just have to make a fresh application...i dont mind making a fresh application, it just not sink into me that i have been denied a chance to justify....

i am sure you must be an expert consultant. Let me know whether my questions are justified????

I believe that justification would be in form of a letter from your father, that you have access to all the funds, but according to rules any new documents are not allowed to be submitted during Admin Review.

I fully agree with you that what happened with you for first time was truly erroneous and you did not deserve that from BHC people. But I also believe that even if you had 2nd(or 3rd) chance with the same application, they would still reject application (because of joint account, no authorization letter from father provided the first time, no new documents accepted during Admin review).

I also believe that whole idea of 3 months 2800 GBP funda is flawed, and no sane person would keep such large amount of money in normal saving account with less interest. But rules (however stupid they are) are meant to be followed to be in the game and there is no way out of it.

P.S. Apologies if I sounded antagonistic, but my posts didn't meant any offense.
P.P.S. According to posts on this forum and my interaction with Indian BHC's, I still believe that joint accounts with anyone (other than spouse) are not accepted for maintenance funds (even with an authorization letter).

FD with joing account as 'my name ' OR 'my father'

Post by ai_i4u » Thu Jul 24, 2008 1:30 pm

CoolestGuyC,

I gone through all of your mail thread. I would like to get a clarification from you. I also kept my maintenance fund as a joint FD with my father (a/c name as 'myname' or 'my father name'). But I have exclusive permission to withdraw this amount. Since I don have time enough time ( my HSMP approval letter's validity will expire on 14th Aug) I am going to apply EC on 31st of this month.

What is your suggestion,
Am I want to give up this EC or want to go for new application?


Thanks in advance
Jo

Dear All,

I’m from Pakistan. I got my document on 29th of July, 08 … My application is rejected and exact objection is mentioned below … which I never aspect from BHC Islamabad.

You have submitted employeement documents in support of your application that have been verified as non-genuine, as detailed in a document verification report. The verification check showed significant and material discrepancies regarding your claimed employer and employment. I am not therefore satisfied that you are employed as claimed. As a false documentation has been submitted in relation to your application and false representations have been made, it is refuted under paragraphs 320(7A) & 135HA(i) of the Immigration Rules.


company is running and genuine and now I’m tense how can I prove that all the things are genuine, after thinking alot I can't understand why they give me this objection even they verified all the thing from company and our accounts officer and Manager IT provides them all information they needed.

Your earliest response would be highly appreciated.

Regards

@ hsmp28122006,

Sorry to see your thread. The best options for you is to reapply and include the photocopy of the approval letter. Also write a very justifiable cover letter stating in simple and clear terms all points claimed and documents submitted to substantiate your claims.The EC probabaly thought you were been dodgy by not submitting your Birth certifcate which you did to the HO before having your application approved. So, you have to be very polite in you letter. Also, state that you thought that your DOB on your passport will be sufficient but since it wasn't, you will have to include the original birth certifcate. And say many thanks to them for considering your application.Let them also know that you submitted the original copy of the approval letter which was not returm=ned back to. I hope you ahve a photocopy of the approval letter?if so, ride on and be the winner. Cheers and wish you. No pani, you still have a strong case if you are sure all the docs are genuine and original which can be verified.

This should suffice in my honest opinion.

EC for unemployed person

Post by z00ps00p » Thu Aug 07, 2008 11:31 pm

Hello,

I was one of the last applicants for immigration under the HSMP from India—my application was received in the last week of March. Now, I have been out of employment since the end of November—and since that date was within three months of the end of March, I was able to provide payslips for the previous 12 months, i.e. the first twelve months in the 15-month period prior to my application.

I have chosen to stay on sabbatical since then (out of choice; I haven't been looking for jobs, especially since worthwhile temporary jobs in my field are hard to find here), with the result that I've been out of employment for over eight months now. I received HSMP approval last month (approval letter dated the middle of the month). I have read (for instance at the erstwhile EC HSMP blog, at http://echsmp.blogspot.com/2007/12/proo ... yment.html which doesn't seem to be publicly readable any more):
While applying for EC, you should be able to give enough proofs to convince the case-worker about your employment. It is advisible not to change your employer between your HSMP application and EC application. If you have changed the employer due to some reasons, explain it cleaarly in the covering letter.

Your earnings at the time of EC application also should be inline with the earnings, you have mentioned while applying for HSMP. VFS will do a verification of documents (Integra screening), which you have provided. They may contact your employer in this regard.
Now, not only have I not had a source of income for the past eight months (so my income for the six months prior to applying for entry clearance will not match the income indicated on the HSMP application), I don't have an employer either.

My questions:
  • Is it advisable for me to apply for entry clearance now? I note from the initial few posts in this thread that the British High Commission or Consulate may try to see if the HSMP criteria still apply, in which case I will not qualify, since the bulk of the points I earned were based on income.
  • If not, is it advisable for me to find work in India now, in order to bolster my income, and then apply once I have earned a substantial amount?
  • If it is advisable for me to work here, how long should I work? I have about five months left to apply for entry clearance (nearly a month has passed since the HSMP approval letter was issued) which is clearly a smaller interval than the six months for which I would have to indicate income to apply for entry clearance (and it will take some time for me to find a job especially after a long absence from employment, as well as some time for the application forms for entry clearance to be processed towards the end of the period).
  • If it is not advisable for me to look for work, what else might I have to do to be able to gain entry clearance successfully?
I've searched the Web to see if anyone else has been in this situation; I only found one post on another board about it, and that individual never received an answer.

These issues have had me worried sick over the past few days as I realize I should've checked and rectified these things at a much earlier stage, and that it may be too late to do anything about it at this juncture. However, now the damage is done and I need to make the most of my situation. Has anyone had experience applying for entry clearance in a situation even remotely similar to mine? If so, please help me in resolving the situation by providing advice.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi Guys,

Today I received the courier from BHC. My application has been rejected on basis that on one particular day in entire 3 months period the amount was GBP 2750 based on the exchange rate on the date of application (85.7). I had a amount 235000 in my account on 28th Apr which is more than GBP 2800 based on exchange rate on 28th Apr (79.74).

This is totally bull-shit. no one can estimate exhange rate thet what it is going be in future.

Other thing is mentioned in my refusal letter that my application has also been considered under general grounf for refusal. I have no idea what does this mean. Do you all received the refusal letter mentioning the similar line when it is refused on maintenance attributes.

I received my passport back with refusal letter. I dont think it would be gud to idea to apply for admin review. because it will take hell amount of time. so i am planning to re-apply but all my original docs are still with BHC. Can someone tell me that is it possible to re-apply with just application forms, new maintenance proof and visa fee with cover letter stating that all the original docs are with BHC.

Please respond me asap.

EC Rejected as Bank Statement > 7 days

Post by askamat » Sun Aug 10, 2008 1:27 pm

Hi Guys,

I hold an HSMP valid till 13 August 2008.

On May 15, 2008, my EC was rejected on the grounds of "non-maintenance of GBP 2800 on a consistent basis"

After discussion with World Visa consultants @ Bangalore & email from BHC, I applied for the EC again as on 16 June 2008 (My HSMP was retained by BHC).

They have again refused the EC this time on the grounds that "the bank statement submitted was more than 7 days old"

My bank statement was dated till 2 June 2008 and I had applied for EC on 16 June 2008, when the statement was 14 days old.

I wanted to know three things as below -

1. Was the rule "bank statement shouldn’t be more than 7 days old" pre-existing since beginning OR was it brought into change recently by BHC, if so from which date?

2. Is it possible to put it for an "Administrative Review" under such circumstances, and if YES - what are the probabilities of getting the EC, provided a fresh bank statement is submitted during review?

3. My HSMP is expiring as on 13 AUG 2008. Is it necessary to put it for a review BEFORE the expiry of HSMP? If put later, are there any chances of the application being considered for EC?

If anyone has faced a similar issue and got the EC, please guide me what procedures were followed and what are the chances?
Also, is it a rule that one can apply ONLY THRICE for EC and provided all the three times it is rejected, one cannot apply for EC thereafter.

Thanks for all the help.

Hi anant&swati,

Very sad to hear your case. You could have taken proper care when you were applying 2nd time for EC.

About your queries,
1.This rule is there since long as per my knowledge. Statements should not be more than 7 days old. I dn't know the dates
2. I would recommend you to apply with alll proper documents instead of going for admin review. I don't think you can send documents at the time of admin review.

3. There are no rules that you can apply only this many times. You better do better ground work before applying for EC. Try contacting VFS/BHC and keep watching the official source for update information.

All the best
Phani.

EC rejected

Post by tonypetty » Sat Aug 23, 2008 1:09 am

Hi
i have applied EC ON 16TH July and got refusal letter stating the refusal reason non mentainance fund. i am living in uk from last three years and i have parked my savings in my account in trust of my daughter. it means that any money is readily available to me at any stage before my daughter becomes 16 year old. she is only 6 years old now. BHC has refuesd on this ground that there are no sufficent funds available in my acount. i cant understand that why they cant accept this as maintenace funds. can any body suggest me that should i go for admin review or i should re apply with my personal bank statement which will have required funds in one week time. by the way i applied outside the UK from Islamabad BHC. Is there any current processing time for Admin Review?
Should i do reapply or ask for admin review? if somebody has asked for admin review then before admin review result one can reapply or one have to wait for asdmin review request?
i would appreciate the response from any body

Re: EC for unemployed person

Post by ajaysharmanyc2006 » Sun Sep 07, 2008 2:32 pm

dude,
don't worry about your sabbatical leave. I was in the same situation when i applied for my HSMP and later EC.
One thing you have to care about is that you need to spell your situation clearly out in your covering letter. I had mentioned in my covering letter that I was not working for a while and I have sufficient money to support myself for a year in the UK. I got the visa so I think my unemployment situation didn't matter to the EC officer.
Regarding reassessment of HSMP criteria during EC - Don't worry about it. EC officer will check your HSMP point compliance as of HSMP application date and not as of EC application date. It doesn't matter if you don't qualify on a later date. Even I was out of qualifying points during EC since I had not had job for the past 8 months.
So, don't worry.
Please be explicit in your covering letter.

Best luck,
Ajay

Dear All:

I am from Pakistan, I have been refused EC on grounds of:

1. Maintenance of funds, Claimed = 10, awarded = 0
2. Submitting a "non-genuine bank statement"

Since my each and every document is true and correct as I processed every thing myself (no agent involved)

This allegation has hurt me more than EC refusal.

I have written to my bank "Standard Charterd" for an apology letter on immediate basis to me and BHC. I have clarified SCB that "I reserve the right to take this matter in the court of law and refer it to State Bank of Pakistan"

Since a forged and confiscated document allegation have put under bar that i can not apply for EC to UK for next 10 years, my bank has successfully ruined my career and future.

I have also couriered + faxed and emailed the same letter that I wrote to SCB to BHC Islamabad (Referring my refusal Post Reference #) for record and information of BHC.

To my amaze, I was never supplied with "Review" request form with refusal (as it claims).

I have filed a review request on 5th August 2008 without providing any other document but only a new identical statement with "balance confirmation" letter duly signed and stamped by SCB authority.

Awaiting for the outcome.

I think the decison will be up-held on new grounds as I did not hire an agent (hope all know why)

shall be updating this board as soon as i receive any response.

Remember it is "you" who are skilled and it is "you" who they want.
To my understanding, the whole idea of "HSMP" program is ruined by ECOs, who should be more concerned to ones skill-set and experience rather than maintainng GBP2800 for 3 months.

UK Governemnet must take notice of UK border and immigration agency since they are NOT serving the purpose for what this HSMP porgram is intended for.

There are far too many question marks to be addressed on HSMP.

Kind regards to all.

Hi All,

I got an HSMP approvak in March now I am planning to apply for EC.

Do I need to show the proof of maintenance of funds 2800 pounds for 3 months ?

This condition is not there when I got an approval.

Please help me as I have no time to apply my HSMP will expire on 24th Sep.

Dear VPL:

Mine was the same case (HSMP approval expiring 2nd Oct. 2008)
But you will be forced to apply for EC under VAF9(A) and VAF9(B) point based T1 General instead of VAF2 application form.

Its irony that you are left with no time to prove maintenance of 2.8KGBP in liquid form (bank account) for consecutive 3 months minimum.

If you own a home / flat, get its current value verified from a well-known state-agency with good market standing.

Also show sale of your car (Notorized copy of car documents and sale deed) This will help you in this short time savings.

Add funds to your bank account while showing the proof that you either withdrew these funds from some business or sold some valuables.

Best wishes + kind regards

Also If I show my fixed assest like plot/Flat with CA letter as proof of evidence, will they consider.

I hope ECO will consider it. The reason being, when I submitted my EC, I was given a new "Document Check List" that contained "if a verifyable evidence of property etc attached" ... so it was new to me.
You should also provide information+evidence for which reason you drawn funds from bank and re-deposited.

But remember and expect a "I am not satisfied" type of wague response so that you can retain your smiles and livelyhood :)

My wishes and prayers for all affectees of incompetent ECOs

Yes, I obtained it directly from the bank with each page duly stamped. It was the bank clerk's error during verification process!! what a curse that guy may be for many and bank itself.

I have demanded an "Apology" letter from Standard Chartered for successfully knocking my career off. I have also demanded that SCB should directly write to BHC and clear me out from "forged document submission" alegation. If it remains there on their (BIA) database, I can not travel to UK for next 10years!

SCB has obliged my demand and have writtend directly to BHC. Am awaiting for the outcome.

SCB is reluctant to apologize me in written because of possible consequences that I may demand a compensation to my satisfaction! which is quite likely in case BHC upholds its decision.

Justice, Truth and Honesty must stand tall.

Thanks pyke for your concern.

Don't you think that rejection letter from BHC is sufficient to prove the irresponsible act of the bank in the court? I think you should consult a good lawyer in case you hear negative response from BHC.
wish you all the best.

really sorry to hear about this... you should follow this up with some lawyer and see what they can do for you... if you can prove, and i am sure you can, that it was SCB's fault then you may be able to get something...

the following is more important... if you can prove to the BHC that you were unaware that the documents were non-genuine, then the 10 year ban would not apply...


==========================

http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/en/ecg/chapte ... %20sixteen

26.17.7 Refusals under 320(7B) where false documents or false representations were used in a previous application
If an applicant has previously been refused entry clearance because a false document was used or a false representation was made, the applicant may claim that they were unaware that the document or representation was false.

Unless the applicant can prove this, they must be automatically refused under paragraph 320(7B) for 10 years from the date deception was used. Where the documents relate directly to the applicant (e.g employment references, qualifications or financial details), such a claim would be likely to fail unless the applicant has clear evidence that an error has been made (eg written confirmation from a financial institution that they had previously supplied us with incorrect information).

In addition you must not refuse an applicant under 320(7B) if:

false documents or false representations were used in a previous visa or leave to enter or remain application, and the applicant was not aware that the documents or representations were false (paragraph 26.17.5 below);

=========================

asif, if you can prove this with the help of SCB... then you should be ok... this was not a letter that you generated... but was generated by the bank... so you are not at fault... brother... DO NOT GIVE UP!!!

please keep me updated. best of luck.

The General Highly Skilled Migrant's points for previous earnings are calculated by converting non-sterling currency to Sterling, then the sterling figure is converted to points, taking into account the relative difference in the level of earnings between countries and the exchange rate. Earnings are dependent on the country they are earned.

Yes I am having UK work permit visa, under this section for the reference number to be filled where I should find this number in the UK work permit visa or what exactly this number means

Please help me getting this point clarified
