JANUARY 24, 2011 / COURTESY: DAILY JANG NEWS
THE UK BORDER AGENCY (UKBA) ONCE AGAIN HAS ISSUED STERN WARNING TO ALL PAKISTANI VISA APPLICANTS SEEKING ENTRY INTO UK IN ALL CATEGORIES NOT TO USING FORGED, FRAUDULENT OR BOGUS DOCUMENTS SUCH AS “TAILORED” BANK STATEMENTS / INCOME TAX RETURNS / NTN-CERTIFICATES (IF REQUIRED) OR “CHANGED” PASSPORTS (IN CASE THEY WERE REFUSED EARLIER FOR A VISA OR AN ENTRY CLEARANCE TO UK). IT MUST BE KEPT IN MIND THAT FAILURE TO PRODUCE GENUINE DOCUMENTS MAY RESULT NOT ONLY IN REFUSAL OF ANY TYPE OF VISA APPLICATION TO UK BUT A PERSON APPLYING WITH FORGED OR COUNTERFEIT DOCUMENTS WOULD NOT ONLY BE PROHIBITED TO APPLY FOR ANY TYPE OF UK VISA FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS STRAIGHT AWAY BUT ALSO WOULD BE REPORTED TO LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES (SUCH AS F.I.A ANTI HUMAN TRAFFICKING CIRCLE) TO TAKE THE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST SUCH APPLICANTS. THIS IS TO FURTHER INFORM ALL UK VISA APPLICANTS THAT UKBA HAS MAINTAINED SOME VERY STRICT POLICIES, AS FAR AS ITS THOROUGH VERIFICATION OR CONFIRMATION PROCESS IS CONCERNED, JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT NO ONE INVOLVED IN ANY KIND OF TERRORIST OR ANTI-SOCIAL ACTIVITIES SHOULD ENTER INTO UK OR ANY PART OF EUROPEAN SECTOR FROM THERE.
APPLICANTS APPLYING FOR UK STUDENT VISA ARE STRICTLY ADVISED & SUGGESTED TO BE VERY CAREFUL IN FILLING-OUT BOTH TIER-4 VISA APPLICATION & ASSESSMENT FORMS BECAUSE OF VERY TEDIOUS, TECHNICAL & DUBIOUS LANGUAGE USED BY UKBA EXPERTS IN THERE AS FAILING TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN REFUSAL OF THEIR UK STUDENT VISA APPLICATIONS.
ALL TYPES OF DEGREES, CERTIFICATES (HSC/SSC), DIPLOMAS & BANK STATEMENTS ARE BEING THOROUGHLY VERIFIED BY BHC ISLAMABAD / ABU DHABI UAE
CASE SCENARIO “A”
Please rest assured that you make two sets copies of the receipt you collected from FedEx and keep them intact after you deposited your visa application at FedEx visa centers. Now Why is that: Please read the CASE SCENARIO “C”
CASE SCENARIO “B”
Please do not change your previous plans while applying for visit, family-visit or a business-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 may end-up getting visa / entry clearance to UK as you used to before.
CASE SCENARIO “C”
If you are at FedEx visa center with the intention to collect your passport and you have a good news from the FedEx desk-officer that you have got the visa then please make sure to check the following things on your embossed computerized visa-sticker before getting out of the FedEx visa centre:
- Your name as declared on your passport.
- Your Date of Birth
- Your passport number
- Your Photograph
- Your visa validity (category as well)
