Types of UK Visas
There are mainly two types of UK visa applications from Pakistan – one leading to settlement after 5 years of lawful residence in the UK and the other for temporary presence in the UK, meaning thereby, non-settlement applications. We are UK Immigration Lawyers in Lahore Pakistan, and we specialize in all types of UK visa applications, settlement and non-settlement, e.g. Tier 1 Entrepreneur applications, UK Spouse visa application, UK Visit visa application, UK appeals, UK Judicial review and UK Administrative review applications.
UK Visa Refusal Rate from Pakistan
If we look at the current refusal rate of UK visa application from Pakistan, the results are not promising. Most applicants are not aware of the relevant UK visas and Immigration Laws therefore inevitably UK visa applications are being refused.
If we look at the stats, over all UK visa and Immigration application success rate from Pakistan is less than 50%. We are genuinely making an effort to improve UK visa application success rate for Pakistanis by offering fair, honest and expert advice to our clients. By the Grace of Almighty Allah our success rate is over 92%. This is because we thoroughly assess our clients’ application before committing to engage ourselves, thus, saving clients’ time, money and above all rejection of their UK visa and immigration application. It is our priority to protect the applicant’s UK immigration history by not making any application without proper assessment.
Documents Required For UK Visa Application from Pakistan
Simultaneously we are making an attempt to guide and educate people so that they understand what any UK entry clearance officer will look for when deciding UK visa applications from Pakistan. For UK Visas and UK Immigration applications purposes, each individual has own personal economic, financial and familial circumstances therefore each applicant will have unique documentation.
In our experience, a large no. of UK visa and immigration applicants from Pakistan want to know, firstly, what documents are required for UK visa application, and secondly what is our fee for advising and preparing their UK visa application. Indeed these two questions are important for anyone. However in our experience these questions cannot be answered until the time we have evaluated the applicant’s personal, financial and familial circumstances.
Mainly applicants’ passport, pictures, bank statements and assets documents are required in order to prove that they will return to Pakistan or that they are credible enough to be granted UK entry clearance. The rest of documentation depends on personal circumstances.
Some of the Common Mistakes in UK Visa Applications
If applicants’ focus is not on the right questions, obviously they shall get wrong answers and thus attach documents which are of no relevance or otherwise not supporting their UK visa application. If the applicant is unsure as to which documents can be relied upon for their UK visa application, they should take help from expert UK immigration consultant in Pakistan. Some applicants consider that it is to their advantage that they hold valid US visa or Canadian visa so they should get UK visa granted without any problems. Well, UK have their own immigration laws and as long as applicants fulfil those UK Immigration Laws and Rules they will get the visa irrespective of their other valid US entry clearances etc.
Another question which most applicants ask is “how much money should we have in our bank account for UK visa application”. As stated above, wrong questions will lead to wrong answers. As such it does not matter how much money is available in the account, as long as it is sufficient for the intended UK visa. A hyped back account can cause credibility issues. On the other hand Pakistan’s shadow economy is the real challenge for all the UK visa applicants. Accordingly applicants should give their income justification.
UK Visa Refusal
We advise all the clients not to panic if they have been refused their UK visa application. Normally the refusal letter states there is no right of appeal or Administrative review against the visit visas refusals. In Tier visa routes, applications have right to administrative review in case these are refused. There will be a right to appeal when UK spouse visa application has been refused. In case of UK visa refusal it is important to see who has made mistake; if the applicant’s UK visa application is lacking in some way then there is no point in challenging the refusal and if it is visa officer who has made an unfair refusal of UK visa application only then visa refusal must be challenged. It is, again, very important to seek expert advice from expert UK visa consultant in Pakistan to evaluate merits of refusal decision. Reapplying UK visa application without proper assessment could weaken your UK immigration history.
