I'm sorry to hear this, and hope you find a way to rebuild in Nigeria. The UK government has a scheme to help in just this situation: see https://www.gov.uk/return-home-voluntarily Even if you think you do not meet the criteria on the website, I strongly suggest getting in contact with them, as they likely have some degree of discretion. Buying you a plane ...

Flights between Angola and Cuba have existed for a very, very long time but as with many/most flights to Cuba they can't be found in normal search engines. Currently TAAG flies it once a week: DT 702 / DT 703 (currently Friday towards Havana and Sunday towards Luanda). And now TAAG serves Lagos three times a week, Monday / Wednesday / Friday: DT 564 / DT 565 ...

Your wife's intentions are being confused. They think she is here to give birth. The US has had 243 years of continuous government. Most of its Constitution was written in the age of sailing ships and wagons for transport, when a pregnant woman coming to the US wasn't really possible. This was just after the Civil War, which ended (state sponsored) ...

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles. This answer has a list of how long bans last. Two of the options are: "if they left the UK voluntarily, not at public expense" (I have reworded slightly), and "if they left UK voluntarily, at public expense". Hence it is clearly possible to get the Home Office to pay for your return flight. I suggest you get in ...

No, absolutely and definitely not. Canadian immigration is very clear that nothing about applying for a visa needs to be done by an agent. Everything can be done by the person making the application. In fact Canadian Immigration actively warns about false information being put about by unscrupulous agents claiming that an agent was necessary for some things....

Unfortunately, you need a visa. It could be a transit visa (C) or a visitor visa (B). All passengers in the US, including transit passengers, must clear immigration controls, and the US did away with its "transit without visa" facility many years ago.

This is a perfectly normal situation. Plenty of people stop working when the get married, and are supported by their spouse. Plenty of people have trips abroad paid for by their spouses. Being in that situation does not invalidate you from getting a visa. (In UK visa applications the word 'sponsorship' is not usually used in this situation. It's usually ...

You can get a one way ticket from London to Lagos for under £200. Google Flights You can try gofundme.com or the version you have in the uk. https://www.gofundme.com/ I’ve seen gofundme raise significant funds for some ridiculous proposals way more outlandish than yours. Being Nigerian unfortunately many people might default to thinking it’s a scam so ...

The website FlightConnections.com is pretty good for answering this sort of question. Playing around with it, it looks like you could do it in three flights as follows: Lagos or Abuja to either a Schengen airport (Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt) or to Istanbul; From there to either Havana or Panama City; From there to Nassau. No one airline serves all of ...

For the Schengen countries you do not need an invitation, but you need to show you have enough money and a good reason to return home, and Norway, Greece and Switzerland are all Schengen countries. The money is not a given amount but showing that you get in enough money more than you need for your life at home that you can afford to spend it on travel. Good ...

The reasons for your refusal are pretty clearly laid out in the letter. Let's explain in more detail. "The transfers are sporadic dating back to 2016" "Sporadic" means they happen infrequently and irregularly. If someone is supporting you financially, then they normally make regular payments to you, monthly or weekly. This is not what the officer is seeing, ...

For refusals, the ECOs are required to provide a refusal letter stating why they believe you are not eligible for a visa. Since the ban has now expired, you cannot be refused under paragraph v3.6. However, your credibility has been dented and your application and your purported intentions will be more closely scrutinized. You now need to prove, on a ...

The article you linked to is about permanent residence in Canada, as you are just applying for a visitor visa for a short time this doesn't apply to you.

The maximum duration of the visa's validity is ten years or until one month before the expiration of your passport, whichever is shorter. The maximum duration of each visit is usually six months, but the passport must be valid for the entire duration of your visit.

Your travel history is a list of all the countries you have visited. You cannot decide what it is, you have a travel history. When you are asked, you should tell the truth. Lies will greatly complicate your life and lead to travel bans when they are found out. For some visa, having a certain kind of travel history is useful. If you apply for a visa for ...

Estonia is part of the Schengen area, so you will have to meet the same requirements there as for any other Schengen area country. You don't need a travel history to get a visa anywhere. However, if you can demonstrate that you have travelled and obeyed the rules in the countries you have travelled to that will make your case stronger. If you can show that ...

To go to my university to get some document which will be of help in the future Really? Is that the best you came up with in a visa application? I'm sorry to be blunt but you just wasted your hard earned money. That was never going to get approved that way. Successful applicants spend a great deal of time or attention on applications to make a strong case. ...

Yes, a Nigerian citizen becomes eligible for Turkish e-Visa if he/she is holding a valid Schengen visa. Please note that there are some additional requirements. The website returned the following ones. I chose "Nigeria" and "Ordinary Passport" to see this list. You must meet all the requirements listed below in order to obtain an e-Visa. Please confirm ...

You are definitely NOT required to book an appointment, it is only suggested.

On a sensitive matter such as this, you should talk to a qualified immigration professional and not rely on the advice of random strangers on the internet. That said here is my advice based on your description and response in the comments. Congrats to your wife for being able to obtain entry into the US legally. Based on your description it appears that the ...

I took a look at the website for the international airport in the Bahamas. It lists arrivals, both domestic (other Bahamian airports) and international. Almost all the international arrivals are from the US, and one is from Toronto. I did spot: Cap Haitien, Haiti Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Havana, Cuba Panama City, Panama London, England I might have ...

As you brought to my attention, the Bahamian government page Applying for a Visitor Visa suggests that British diplomatic missions will process Bahamian visa applications: Deadline Visa applications should be submitted at least two weeks before travel. Applicants applying for a visa at a British Embassy must submit the application at least four ...

As you already know, applying for a Bahamas visa requires a visit in person to an embassy or consulate. There is a Bahamas embassy in Haiti, and Nigerian nationals can enter Haiti visa-free for a visit up to 3 months. (Transiting there through an airport might still need a transit visa from some country though.) That embassy is located at: Embassy of the ...

Going from 2 weeks to 5 months is a material change - had you requested such a long stay in your application your visit visa may not have been approved. There are other examples of this on TSE eg I was refused a UK visa because of my visit history and Cancelled UK visa on entry Advice on what to do is simple: If you reapply, you will have to address the ...

For Russia: an invitation is mandatory, but it is given to you by the hotel or the travel agency you book the travel, if you are staying for tourism. It is very easy to get, and as far I know, it is not really checked after you get it. [In my case, I had to change completely the plans, and cancel a tour, but I did a much shorter tourist travel in Russia ...

A Standard Visitor visa https://www.gov.uk/standard-visitor-visa is the appropriate visa for this scenario. You will need to apply separately for each of you, cross-referencing your family members’ applications to your own as the main applicant. The PLAB exam is a permitted activity for visitors https://www.gov.uk/guidance/immigration-rules/immigration-...

If your ban is still in force (it’s unclear from your question when it was imposed and how long for) you are ineligible to apply for a visitor visa. If you apply, you will automatically be refused. If your ban has expired you can apply but it’s probably unlikely you’d be successful. Having a French resident permit makes no difference in either scenario. If ...
