WIFE Spouse VISA
Hi all,

IT would be great if someone could help me related to My Wife Spouse VISA. I applied for my Wife Spouse VISA and submitted all the documents related to VFS in India. but onfortunately the bank statement for one month was missed in between no idea where and the Highcommission was chasing me and my wife to resubmit them. We tried our best to send them in time to the HighCommission but not sure whether they actually reached them or not as the e-mail IDs given hardly respond the VFS just says that they dont know about this.

few days back We recieved a letter stating that the VISA has been refused/kept on hold not sure what that means. I have sent 2 copies of the same document which they said are missing one to my wife and the other to emabssy my wife my wife got it but no idea about the other one sent it through Royal mail and they dont knw where it is(giving me more pain). I asked my wife to send the document to High commission and she did that and the courier service is showing that the reception of High commission has recieved it. Still no communication from anyone saying what is the status of application. the VFS website is showing that the DOB of the applicant is incorrect but their SMS service is showing in process.

the only query I have is whether we could submit the documets directly to Highcommission just to close such issues quickly or if I could submit them to anyone in UK itself.

Thanks a lot in advance for your responses.

GOOD HOPE HOSPITAL is an obvious fake job scam
What real hospital would hire someone without an interview? Please read carefully because this applies to every job offer you receive! 99% of email job offers are scams! No real company hires you without an in person, face to face interview. An email, online or telephone interview is always a scam! No real company ever charges any money for a job even for a visa or work permit or for a deposit for any reason! Read: www.scam-job-emails.tk Scammers will ask you to send money to a fake embassy official, travel agency or lawyer who is a really a scammer using a free email address!! No real company, government or visa agent ever uses a free or public email address (yahoo.com gmail.com hotmail.com, aol.com, etc.) Email addresses like diplomats.com, counsellor.com, consultant.com, lawyer.com etc. are also free email addresses. Read: www.scam-email-addresses.tk No real visa agent ever requests money via wire to a bank account or by Western Union or MoneyGram. Read: www.never-wire-money-to-strangers.tk No real company uses a telephone number that begins with +44 70, +44 871, +44 870, +44 844, or +44 845. Those are forwarding numbers which are not in the UK. Read: www.scam-telephone-numbers.tk

There are no exceptions! Don't let a scammers convince you otherwise! A scammer is only as smart as his victim is naive! If something sounds too good to be true, it is a scam! Always "Google" all telephone numbers, email addresses and websites in any job offer to see if it has already been posted as a scam!

These all offers are fake
I live in UK and these all offers are fake, you will not find any Scanscourt hotel's website and they are using email live.com, that is Microsoft website,.

I guess Scanscourt hotel has been closed and they are using its name.

I also notice one person was offering GBP 3500 per month...what a laugh, in this money you can hire a very experienced person here..don't need to go India.

Most of UK citizen earn less than GBP 2000.00 per month.

Just ignore them...otherwise you will loose your money

Any issue write me on pauly2k1@yahoo.com...using subject Advice, thanks
