 You are seeking entry to the UK for 1 month to visit family and attend a wedding. You state that your partner xxxxxxxxxxxxxx is providing £2,000 towards the cost of the travel, maintenance and accommodation for your visit and I am satisfied he is able to do so. However, I also have to take into consideration your personal and financial circumstances in Thailand.

 

Should have claimed you were covering all expenses, then her bank account details would have been irrelevant.

Errr.......yes. That was stated in the application, and the ECO has agreed that the sponsor is able to do so. Are you trying to blame the applicant and sponsor, and not the ECO ?

I'm saying never give the ECO a reason to refuse.

And this guy used 'she doesn't have enough money in her bank' as a reason.

This is what we always state on my wife's visa applications, had 3 successful applications already including one last month.

That seems to be how to apply...human nature dictates you want to provide a good case so tend to provide over and above what they require in the belief it makes your case stronger...but as seen it tends to backfire in some circumstances.

all depends on the mood of the person doing the assessment, or as in our case collecting the paperwork

when we sat down (a Farang asked me to sit by him? and I can only think that he had upset one of the office staff) I noticed some of the Thai staff had a funny look in our direction, everything was ok until my wife handed me the folder that our application had been in, I could tell it was not empty, when I checked every single financial document

had been left in the folder, I asked the lady at the counter what was going on? and showed her all the

paper work, she disappeared and came back and basically shrugged, I tried to phone the number for complaints but could not get an answer... after an hour or so of showing people what had been done.the lady at the counter told me if we applied again I would be allowed to go with the wife from start to finish , we got refused and I went with the wife, and guess what they tried to give the financials back

in the folder but I shoved them back and pretended to Film them.

we had a nice month in the Uk and we intend to attend my sons wedding next year, and I would rather stand for a few hours than accept a seat from a stranger again, still a puzzle to this day...

alls we got was not enough proof of financials and the fact that I reported that my documents were with held several hours before the documents were examined counted for nothing. TIT

Was this at VFS ??

 

They have nothing to do with what docs you submit, they are just there to receive them.

Your wife should have made sure they got submitted with the rest of the application !!

Pardon me, but I'm a bit confused, are you talking about your experience at VFS in Bangkok?

p.s. this was a few years ago, so hopefully not now as bad as they have changed the company doing this job,

but it still annoys me that Thai people will make their own rules/judgements and ride roughshod over

there fellow Thais if their fragile pride is in their opinion ever so slightly touched.

sorry people jumped in a bit to soon, yes VFS had a bad reputation in many counties so I have been told.

I was not trying to take over the thread just a red flag to a none red bull , if you know what I mean.

I am glad they are keeping some happy, at the time I had dealings with them

I bumped into two French lads at swampy and I did not have to tell them

the company name !!! they told me and the wife ''VFS in Vietnam'' an infamous name at that time.
