If UKBA do not want partners of Tier 1 Investor applicants answering these questions, why have they not provided for N/A optionality? Do you think the above responses are in line with what they expect to see? Will there be problems for the applicant because information has been included (through no other choice)? Could it be that UKBA are concerned to make sure that dependents have sufficient funds beyond the £1m which the main applicant is required to invest? If they do not require evidence of support, how do they get comfortable with sufficiency of funds? Thanks
If the main applicant had one visa refusal (he was asking for a 1 year visa, but it appears that at the time the official policy of the Czech Republic was not to issue 1 year visas) will this undermine his application? Can he say that as far as he is aware the visa was refused for policy reasons? He subsequently received 2 Czech visas for shorter time periods. Many thanks
