Good day. Thank you for helpful response. I have some follow up questions. Kindly respond to them please. I have read the UK immigration rules. The link is provided below for easy reference. I have referred to some of the rules in my follow up questions.
1. no, this will not be a ground for refusing her next visa
This is a follow up question. My daughter is currently on a 3 years RCOS valid till April 2018. So after exiting UK within the 6 month validity of the current general visitor visa, is it better to apply for the 2 year multiple entry visit visa (expiring before daughter’s visa expires) or for the 5 year multiple entry visit visa (expiring after my daughter’s visa expires.
2) yes, but the final decision to let her enter the UK lies with the UK immigration officer at the UK border. Having a visa does not guarantee entry to the UK.
This is a follow up question. My daughter’s husband is frequently disrupting her day to day life and her efforts to progress in her career. My daughter has to perform to expectations at work and also pass a demanding professional examination by November 2015. She has to take a paper by end of May, another by end June or mid July and 3 papers in the 1st week of November 2015.
My wife would visit our daughter only for the purpose of helping her progress with her career (managing the home while our daughter prepares for taking professional exams, supporting our daughter in future in case of pregnancy and after delivery etc) We have strong social and economic ties in India and in the Middle East requiring my wife’s physical presence outside UK and can demonstrate these with documents.
Do you have any specific advice for us on anything else we need to do now to ensure that the immigration officer at the airport clears my wife’s entry when she returns to UK on another valid multiple entry visit visa.
3) not necessary to do anything but she may explain this fact in her next visa application.
This is a follow up question.
In the visa application, my wife represented that she wanted to visit the UK for tourism and would stay with her Nephew in Croydon, Surrey. After my wife received her visit Visa on 3rd March 2015, my daughter applied for her visa in mid March (as soon as she collected all the required documents) and subsequently received her visa in the last week of March 2015. My wife has visited her nephew in Croydon, Surrey after reaching London but is currently staying with my daughter in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
My wife applied for a 2 month visit visa but has received a 6 month visa and intends to exit the UK in August 2015 well before 3rd September (the expiry date of the 6 month visit visa). She produced to the immigration officer at LHR a return ticket for 28th June 2015.
When she applies for a long term visit visa (2 years or 5 years) after exiting the UK, will the aforementioned facts be construed as “ breach” under the UK Immigration Rules V 3.9 (a) “overstaying”, or (c) “deception in relation to an application” or under V 3.6 “False information in relation to an application”
4) I would advise against her applying for an extension unless there are serious compelling reasons to do so e.g. Medical condition which does not allow her to travel. applying for an extension will complicate her case and may affect her next visa.
