No, this is a well-known scam. It is absolutely characteristic of this type of criminal fraud that the fraudster invents a series of reasons to send them money - usually by wire-transfer or similar means.

No, while the realms of possibility do not exclude it, success in your case would take a miracle. For starters you are addressing the wrong issues... You were refused last year because they did not believe you were a genuine visitor and the risk of your going underground in the UK was too great. Now you want to tell them that a relative who you were ...

I'm from Nigeria but live in the US now. This has scam written all over it. Do NOT send her a dime! All you need to travel is your ticket, passport, a visa, and maybe a few dollars.

You applied for a Standard Visitor Visa to attend an assessment session in the UK with the British Army. You are a student, are not working, have no dependants and entirely rely on your father to fund this trip. Hate to break it to you, but at this point your chances of joining the British Army are slim. The simple fact is that they want to see that you ...

This question grabbed my curiosity enough that I've checked your previous questions. Namely, you've asked a question about, I think, this application which has a lot of relevant information. You were refused under paragraph 4.2 points a and c which means that he didn't believe that you are a genuine visitor and that you will leave the UK at the end of your ...

There is nothing to stop you reapplying but rapid applications with a different reason every time will undermine the chances of success and may lead to a ban for frivolous applications. Your best option is to wait before reapplying and in the meantime concentrate on addressing the shortfalls in your application, particularly ties to your home country. This ...

You cannot travel with an expired passport. Once a passport expires, it is no longer a valid travel document (even if it contains a valid visa). As there is no Ghanaian foreign mission in Kuwait, you need to contact the Ghanaian Embassy in Saudi Arabia to renew your passport. Once you have renewed your passport, you need to transfer your Kuwait residency ...

You need a UK entry clearance in order to get your army assessment. This is a two day affair that comes midway in the recruitment process. Other than sending an invitation the army does nothing else. Applicants are expected to pay their own expenses and for those needing it, acquire an entry clearance. UKVI treats the occasion as a job interview and so the ...

With regards to visas, your main hurdle will be getting a visitor visa for attending the part of the recruitment process that happens in the UK. These are handled exactly as anyone else who wants a visitor visa to attend a job interview; the army does not get any special preference. In order to get this, you need to convince the ECO of three things: 1) ...

Aside from the obvious answer by RedGrittyBrick (‘this story just screams “scam” with every fibre’) there is a second reason why this cannot be true. Immigration officers and visa approvers don’t just require visitors to have access to a certain amount of funds $x. They want to know which funds you have how you acquired them what your ratio of income/...

You can in theory apply for an Emergency Travel Document if you are outside Britain and have lost your passport and need to travel. However the normal purpose is to allow you to return to the UK when you have no other travel document. It is uncertain if wishing to go to a relative's funeral constitutes an emergency. It may depend on how close a relative it ...

Could travel with my expired Ghanaian passport? You cannot travel out of Ghana on an expired passport. I am a Ghanaian and I know this because I checked something similar including traveling to Ghana on a US passport with my expired Ghana passport as proof of citizenship. Not only will the immigration at Kotoka Airport not allow you, but the airlines at ...

i was only told i could apply for a new visa and come back whenever i want That means you were not issued a ban, in which case, you should be fine to enter visa-free on your Brazilian passport, with which you can stay for up to 90 days.

Standard Visitor as has already been mentioned in the Title of two of your questions in this long series, where I note one of the answers includes: now is not the time for you to visit the UK. Finish your studies, get a stable job, and give it another shot, preferably with the aid of a qualified solicitor.

You are, presumably since this is not your first application, filling out the Standard Visitor Application to attend your army assessment and you have arrived at a screen like this... Select 'Business' (as shown) and click 'Save and Continue'. The next screen will ask about the purpose of your business visit. Select 'Other' and complete the text field ...

Can I ask for a change of date? Yes, it is possible to ask for a change of date. But it's important to remember that you signed an agreement with them about advising them immediately about changes in your circumstances. If they decide that you did not keep your end of the agreement or if they decide that your dates are no longer supported by your premise ...

It is best to contact a lawyer, but I will offer some suggestions based on my experience of having to apply for multiple visas: Purpose of Travel If you are rejected for this reason, it means you did not make clear [a] why you are visiting [b] provide proof that supported your reason for travel. If you wanted to come for a short visit (temporary stay), you ...

We get a lot of questions like this and it always feels like the underlying question is "I've been rejected for visas in the past and I'd like to apply again now. If I can get away with it, lying about my past would increase my chance of getting the visa. So, if I lie, will I get caught?" You should always assume that they know your application history, and ...

According to the Serbian MFA At its meeting of 30 October 2014, the Government of the Republic of Serbia adopted the Decision on visa free entry to the Republic of Serbia for holders of foreign passports having a valid Schengen, UK and other Member States' visa, or visa of the United States of America, and for holders of foreign passports having residence ...

There is what is possible, and what is right. "Right" is not quite the correct word, but the best that I can come up with. Your Ghanaian passport is not the problem. You are. You overstayed. If you want to avoid any possible problem, you should apply for a visa with your Brazilian passport.

Okay, so you were refused under V4.2 a, c and e of Appendix V of Immigration Rules, so let me bring them up for reference: V 4.2 The applicant must satisfy the decision maker that they are a genuine visitor. This means that the applicant: (a) will leave the UK at the end of their visit; and (c) is genuinely seeking entry for a purpose that is ...

That could be a typo by the ECO, ie per year instead of per month. Even if it’s not, I can tell you with a good degree of confidence that your correct salary of 800 GHS (£128.951) per month is not going to change the ECO’s decision. Finally the other point about unexplained deposits is in itself enough evidence for a visa refusal. In summary I don’t think ...

Yes, you need a visa. You need either a standard visitor visa or an EEA family permit for this purpose. To qualify for the latter, you must be dependent on one of your children who is traveling with you (for example, if you are retired, and your adult child is supporting you). Otherwise, you'll need the standard visitor visa. (There is one exception. If ...

According to Timatic, the database of visa information used by airlines, a visa is required for Ghanaian citizens to enter Bulgaria unless you hold a "C visa issued by Croatia, Cyprus, Romania or a Schengen Member State." Turkey is not one of those. Bulgaria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a page with visa requirements, which confirms this list. You'll ...

According to Timatic you are partially correct: Visa required, except for Passengers with a multiple-entry visa issued by Canada, USA or the United Kingdom valid for at least 45 days beyond the period of intended stay in Bermuda for a maximum stay of 3 months. However, the official Bermudan government website states that: As of 1 March 2014, Bermuda ...

Yes, you are correct!. you can transit through Ataturk istanbul airport (look for transfer to international terminal) with valid passport (not expired) along with UK visa.

Your husband is submitting his tax returns because he works for cash-in-hand and does not receive salary slips and he does not deposit his salary in the bank.

Understand that this is a ...

In theory you can enter Poland up to and including the last day of validity of your type D visa. You may be asked to show a credible plan to leave before it expires, unless you can show that you are planning to apply for a residence permit in Poland to replace the visa. If you already have a Polish residence permit then you can enter on the basis of the ...

I was asking to ascertain the situation for two Namibian citizens who travelled to Accra from Windhoek in August 2019. In Windhoek, the Ghana High Commission issued them visas at US$120 each. On arrival in Accra, immigration officials were puzzled and told them that they did not require visas to enter. That's annoying and disappointing, and was quite an ...
