Here is my story.

Application submitted: 23 December 2007
Type: Student
Rejected: January 2008
Reason: Actually this was the funniest part of my entire visa story. Can you peoples believe? BHC refused visa application reasoning that my brother (sponsor) had inadequate account balance and they had seen that there was a huge fluctuation in bank statement. Neither I had mentioned any brother nor did the bank statement have any fluctuation or insufficient account balance. I donít know what they had seen. Why they created this lame story. The visa officers are nuts they donít performs their duty with responsibility either they donít think that they going to spoil somebodyís future.


Appeal lodged: 11 February 2008
Decision date: 6 October 2008
Contact with AIT
: 13 October 2008 and they told me that your appeal has been granted you will receive letter after 14 weeks from BHC.
Decision: Appeal has been allowed
Received determination: 14 October 2008
Status waiting for call in letter

What I have done?

I've sent 2 emails to BHC, 2 mails to AIT, 1 mail to HO and 2 mails to another department.



Who guide me ?

I've got lot of facilitate from this forums many friends help me including kids blue smarty
The story is not finish yet kahnai abhi baqi hai meray dost :)

Visa applied for: Working Holiday Maker
Nationality:
Maldives

Date of Application: 26th May 2008
Had to fly to Colombo and cost of staying one week.

Refused: 31st May 2008
Reason: Whole list given basically didnt believe whole application.

Appeal to AIT London: Mid June
Not Lodged by AIT till 10th July due to backlogs

Appeal refused ECO Colombo: 10th October 2008

Court Hearing: 26th November 2008 Newport
No show HO very friendly judge

Prolumugation: 2nd December 2008
Appeal allowed, perfectly credible case he said.

Papers sent to Overseas Embassy by HOPU Cardiff: 11th December 2008
Sounds good but sent to non-existant HC in Maldives!!!

Mistake discovered: 5th January 2009
Difficult to unravel as once AIT let go of process there seems to be no follow through process!!
Anyone who needs help with this do contact me, it was a long tedious process to sort out.

Papers emailed to HC Colombo & Chenai from HOPU: 7th January 2009
HOPU unsure as to who would issue visa
Repeatedly contacted Colombo visa office by phone but they kept telling me no papers were recieved. Started bombarding all email address's with the issue in hand to at least find out who would issue the visa, Chenai or Colombo.


Acknowledgement of Appeal Papers by ECM Colombo: 21st January 2009
many emails later they agreed to issue visa at the BHC whilst they waited, having flown back to Colombo for the day.

VISA ISSUED: 29th January 2009
Initially refused entry to BHC by security despite having names appointments etc. Sent back and forth to visa office other side of Colombo an hour away. Ended up having to send email conversations to security!!!!

Arrived UK: 7th February 2009.

What did I do??

Never give up, my motto is ' there is always an answer'
Email and email. Found the AIT very helpful and informative and efficient.
The process after that was a disaster, had it not been chased by myself as sponsor the allowed appeal would have disappeared into the black hole that is the system.
Read past cases and present any relevant to an appeal judge.

Who advised me?

This forum was invaluable to me, spent many hours trawling through posts and posted several times with good response so thanks to everyone for that. The whole process was an eye opener for me and I wouldnt want to repeat it.
I came to the conclusion that the reason there are so many 'illegals' in the UK is that the system is so difficult to navigate that its the only way to gain entry. My personal view.


Good Luck to everyone still waiting

Hi everyone, hopefully you read the good news in the main forum , here are the details:

Visa Type : Student Dependent (3 month old daughter)
Applied : March 2008
Refused : APRIL 2008
Reason : Applicant did not provide rent slips so we are not satisfied that the accomodation is secure. ( Understandable, even though landlord says in his letter that the rent is upto date and never had any arrears)

Applied Again: April 2008 (with rent slips stappled to tenancy agreement and all other documents upto date and same as before)
Refused: May 2008
Reason: Applicant did not provide rent slips( hmmm havent i heard that somewhere before??) and also did not provide original birth certificate. (The vac center made a copy of the original stamped and signed it and gave the original back....as they did last time too....hmmm)
Appealed: May 2008
Court Hearing Date: 24th December 2008
Decision : Appeal has been Allowed
Received determination : January 16th 2009

Call in Letter Received 4th March 2009

Will hopefully be submitting passport and documents for visa on monday 9th ofMarch





What did i do ?

visited the forum regularly to get advice to share information and to be upto date with the current processing times. So guys its veryyyyy important for everyone to share, just having a rough idea of the processing times helps give some sort of peace to a person who doesnt know how long they will be hung in limbo.

The only emails or faxes i have sent are for the BHC to return documents submitted almost two years ago for my wifes visa and subsequent appeal. And i havent still received any reply or my documents, which include ALL my educational documents because they refused my wife a visa because i only sent them current documents of my Masters degree and they wanted to see ALL of my education history in the absence of which they werent satisfied that we were married...( YES there you have it if your not educated and you dont have your educational documents from kindergarden with youthen im sorry you are not married and you cant be married)

Good luck to everyone who is still waiting, but do cheer up as i can see proocessing times are reducing considerably.
