The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
Krishan is a Pakistani National. He had many cousins in the UK with whom he spoke with constantly over the internet and when they had visited him in Pakistan.
He had made an application as a Family Visitor previously but it had been refused.
The Notice of Refusal had stated that the Entry Clearance Officer was not convinced that he would have sufficient reason to return to his home if he had entered the UK – citing that he did not have a job in Pakistan or any other obligations.
Krishan was currently out of work, but only because he had to take care of his parents who were unwell.
He did not know how to move forward and was worried that he would never be able to visit his family in the UK for just a few weeks.
After reading our reviews online, he had emailed to arrange a call with one of our lawyers.
A call was arranged for the following day, however, our lawyer first requested a scan of his Refusal Letter so that no time was wasted giving him the best possible advice.
We determined that he met all of the requirements correctly, but realised he would have to address the issue that he was not currently working.
We gave Krishan written instructions and list of documents he would have to obtain to prove that he was taking care of his parents – this involved notes from their Doctor translated into English, along with his Birth Certificate and copies of his parent’s passports.
IAS also advised Krishan on how he should draft a covering letter outlining his situation and how this should be worded – as English was not his first language, we called Krishan and wrote the letter on his behalf, forwarding it to him for him to sign.
Krishan resubmitted the application and it was successful. IAS put him in the best possible position to achieve a positive outcome and within a few weeks he was finally able to visit his family.
