Your goals when filling any visa application are a) to be truthful and b) to not raise undue attention. In your case, these conflict a bit, so the best way out is to write an address through which you are theoretically contactable in your country of citizenship (the passport you're using). This can be a parent, a friend, really anybody who knows who you ...

When you apply for a visa to visit the UK, one of the main things they want to see is evidence that you are genuinely planning to visit (i.e. you're not pretending to plan a visit but actually intending to stay forever). As such, they ask for evidence that you have a reason to leave at the end of your trip, generally in the form of proving close ties to your ...

Understandably when granting a visa to someones partner they want proof that person will not simply remain in the UK to be with said partner.

The general advice we have is that unless there was a serious error in the reading of your file you should not apply again. Not having minor documents included in your portfolio (that may be referred to by other documents) is not a serious error or omission. You don’t give the specific reason code your visa was denied but it was most probably the generic “...

Based on your tags my answer will be relevant to a non-immigrant visa for the USA. You need to prove that you will not stay in the US indefinitely, and that you will return to your home country, hence the demonstration of the 'significant ties'. These may depend on your age too. As a rule of thumb this can include, but is not limited to, the following in ...

Exiting and reentering would not achieve anything, there is no rule against multi-purpose stays. In the Schengen area, border guards only check whether you meet the requirements for entry, they do not grant you any permission, cannot attach additional conditions on your stay or anything like that. An invitation letter is useless, it's only useful for people ...

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.

It was a mistake to not include the evidence of land ownership. A typo isn't likely to matter much or at all, but it does show evidence of intention to leave Australia. This should be included. A child in college is not necessarily a sufficient family tie to show intention to leave, but a minor child would be. Since that child would have been traveling to ...

As long as you are truthful and bring all the evidence you need, you should not have a problem with this situation. You sister is staying for 7 days so she will have a booked return flight ticket to prove this. If your sister can also demonstrate strong ties to her home country, then this will help convincing the immigration officer reviewing her application ...

There are three straightforward reasons for your refusal. You have asked for a ten week visa. Ten weeks in the UK is completely unnecessary to sit PLAB 2, and in view of your finances unreasonable.

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. ...

‘Easier to apply’ may not translate into ‘easy to get’ given the previous refusal. The visa you apply for depends on what your intentions are, not what is easiest to obtain. Visit Visa: It’s highly unlikely that showing you have inheritance expectations will help demonstrate home ties. The savings should help, but you’ll need to explain the provenance of ...

There is not a lot online on how pets are considered for ties to home country, but the fact that they are never mentioned in the lists with options shows they are not considered any strong tie. While you feel the dog as a family member, immigration officers do not. Likely out of experience as too many people would not return home to get back to the dog and ...

Having a job in your home country, especially a full-time one. Owning property there, or having a lease for property (e.g. a rented apartment or home where you live).

No one can predict how your visa process will go, but judging from the vast majority of visa related questions - my guess is your visa will be rejected. You have to understand that the visa issuing authorities are assuming you are a "de-facto immigrant", that is, they are looking for reasons why you would likely break the terms of the visa (don't return, ...

Are these strong grounds for a visitor visa, or is there any reason for rejection or suspicion? No, they’re not strong grounds. There are several weaknesses in the circumstances you describe. For example, no prior travel history (as you mention in a comment), and no ties to home (job, assets) apart from family. This question explains the likely outcome UK ...

Firstly, with two refusals already, don't apply again any time soon. You will appear to be desperate and that will make your case weaker. Secondly, you must address the issues raised by the ECO in your next application. Specifically, why do you need ten weeks for a short test; why should your employer release you for that time; how will you support yourself ...

A Verpflichtungserklärung (Sponsorship) alone is not sufficient, but must be taken togeather with her regular income. A visa is rarely issued soly based on a sponsorship.

What the government is looking for in the application process is evidence that you plan to return and not try and overstay in Canada. Any and all evidence that you think might help (Eg school fees indicate your kids are at school in your home country), a letter from your work, maybe a lease agreement - can help. They may ignore some of it, but more ...

When you are asked "have you ever been refused a visa", you say yes and explain what happened back then. You just didn't meet the requirements nine or ten years ago, but that shouldn't cause any problems as long as your situation has changed and you meet the requirements today. If you had been refused a visa two weeks ago, that might be a problem. If you ...
