First of all, I applaud your resolve to be truthful in the application. Definitely tell the truth. Having said that, visiting a boyfriend or girlfriend can indeed be a bit of a red flag to immigration, though it is not an insurmountable one. The key parts to successfully getting a visitor visa are convincing the officer reviewing the application that the ...

From personal experience I don’t believe this is true, and I do believe it is always best to tell the truth in any visa application. My partner is Cuban. It is notoriously difficult for Cubans to get a visa for any destination, and it’s virtually unheard of for a Cuban to be able to meet the financial eligibility requirements in their own right. I have ...

When the country you are applying to finds that the documents are fake, following things can happen. Visa application will be rejected for sure. You will be likeley banned for life or for a long period of time. You will have to declare this visa rejection for any similar countries, on which they won't be giving visas.

Yes and no. In any case she should always tell the truth and not hide information. Having a parent or a boyfriend could be a cause of denial or a help to get the visa. Such fact is not enough to have a decision, but it should be interpreted with all other information. If she does not have a job nor connection to her home country (and especially if r comes ...

You should apply separately in your respective places of residence. As @phoog comments, if you apply in India there’s a good chance that the application will be rejected with instructions to apply in Japan, because applicants are generally required to apply in their place of residence. Since you are the primary applicant, and your girlfriend’s application ...

Your husband's relative is also your relative. Unless they explicitly ask for proof of the relationship, you don't need to provide it. Also, a "sponsor" is not mandatory, nor is one even helpful in cases such as yours where you can afford to travel to Canada on your own. Your visa application would be just as strong if you were visiting a friend who was ...

As your main purpose in visiting is to study, it would appear that the Short Term Student Visa is appropriate. The guidance for the Standard Visitor Visa says study cannot be the main purpose of your visit.

Athough I overstayed for just 1 day, the immigration officers at Don Mu'ng were very nice and told me that I don't have to pay the 500 fine (probably because it's the only overstay I had in this passport); the officer added that if I would stay 2 days or more there would have been a fine. There is a small deep Blue signature in Thai underneath the ...

Just from the top of mind: You could be refused a visa. You could be banned from that country. You could be refused visas and banned from other countries. You could be arrested in your country and go to prison.

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 a general rule, the information given in the application forms must match the information found in the documents attached to it. Quoting from the FAQ on the Canadian Immigration website: If the name of my place of birth has changed, what place of birth should I enter in CAS? In Client Application Status (CAS), use the name of your place of birth ...

You are here in the US with a multi-entry non-visitor visa, this is generally acceptable for consulates to allow you to use their consular services (ie visa request) here in the US. You would lodge an application with the nearest diplomatic mission. You can find a list of Singapore Missions in the USA here. San Francisco (consulate) Miami (consulate) New ...

You don’t say where you’re applying from (and I don’t know if it matters), however this is the site linked from the gov.uk travel advice page for British citizens: https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/evisa/tvoa.html

‘Sponsorship’ in the context of a UK Standard Visitor visa relates to providing funds and/or maintenance, and/or accommodation to the applicant. Anyone who is legally present in the UK can invite someone to visit them there. There are no minimum income or savings requirements other than an applicant showing they have sufficient and proportionate funds for ...

A few years ago I caught a similar late flight from the UK, the booths were open for us to use. Many official government websites advertise the visa on arrival process for Egypt, so it will realistically always be open until the last flight of the day, as otherwise money would be lost, and people wouldn't be able to pass through immigration. There are also ...
