Euro Educational Consultants are also proud to announce their services for UK Visit Visa Applicants.
Beginning January 01 2005, all Pakistani citizens have privileges to apply for UK visit visa category with the exception of an age of 18 years or under who has to accompany his / her parents / guardian (not applicable in case of students).
Please do not change your previous plans while applying for visit, family-visit or a business visitor visa to UK; even if you are “dead-sure” you would easily get the visa just because you had visited UK several times before and never even stayed out there for longer than a proposed time-period. Now why is that: (1) Well, call it an ignorance or a certain “sensitive-shift” in UK visa policy by UK Border Agency (UKBA) in recent months for Pakistan, there are 70:30 chances that you might end-up being refused by British High Commission (BHC) either in Abu-Dhabi UAE or in Islamabad Pakistan for no solid reason whatsoever. So please, be very careful and keep other options “wide-open.”
Now the type of copy-pasted magical heading before any objection or refusal the BHC visa-section authorities usually come along with in that refusal letter, in most of the such cases, is something like this:
“I note that you have previously traveled to the UK and your earlier application provided full details to satisfy the ECO that you had met the requirements of the Immigration Rules (Para 41, HC-395) as a visitor. However, each case must be decided on its individual merits at the time of application.”
So beware it is not a sure-shot guarantee that you may end-up getting visa / entry clearance to UK as you used to before.
THE UK BORDER AGENCY (UKBA) HAS RECENTLY ISSUED A STERN WARNING TO ALL PAKISTANI VISA APPLICANTS SEEKING ENTRY INTO UK IN ALL CATEGORIES TO BEWARE OF “CERTAIN” LOCAL “AGENTS” / “CONSULTANTS” TRYING TO LURE THEM INTO VISA SCAM BY OFFERING THEM BOGUS DOCUMENTS SUCH AS “TAILORED” BANK STATEMENTS OR “CHANGED” PASSPORTS (IN CASE THEY WERE REFUSED EARLIER FOR A VISA) FOR A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY. IT IS FURTHER WARNED THAT THERE IS NOTHING LIKE “DONE” VISA OR “DONE” ENTRY INTO UK OR ANY PART OF EUROPEAN UNION. IT MUST BE KEPT IN MIND THAT FAILURE TO PRODUCE ORIGINAL/GENUINE DOCUMENTS MAY RESULT NOT ONLY IN REFUSAL OF VISA APPLICATION BUT A PERSON APPLYING WITH FORGED DOCUMENTS WOULD BE PROHIBITED TO APPLY FOR ANY TYPE OF UK VISA FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS STRAIGHT AWAY.
