Just want to ask if anyone knows the answer to this.
I currently have a visit visa valid until 2025. My family visa application has been refused and have made an appeal to the tribunal and there is no outcome to my appeal yet.
I am hoping to travel to the UK now to attend my father-in-law's funeral and thought I could travel to the UK using my visit visa. My husband has contacted the immigration in the UK via telephone and was advised that I cannot travel during an active application but since a refusal has already been issued and gone to appeal, technically my family visa application is not active and therefore I should have no problems traveling. Just to be sure I also contacted the immigration online and have informed them re the advise we received via telephone. They have come back to me with a response that "Normally if you submitted new application - You currently visa will be superseded and no longer valid."
It's the first I have heard of this and confused as we have been given conflicting response. I am desperate to be able to make it to my father-in-law's funeral and there seems to be no other option available to me.
Appreciate any response on this
