NotesBeware of emailed job offers for childcare and other similar positions in the UK. These are all frauds.

• Since November 2008, no visas are granted for household workers from outside Europe. Work visas are only granted for highly-skilled positions, most of which require university degrees.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK requires you to pay them any money. All fees would be paid by the employer.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK uses a free email address from Yahoo, Gmail, or similar services.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK uses a telephone number that begins with +4470 (070). These are non-geographic numbers available to anyone in the world.

• No legitimate business requests payment via Western Union.

BAKIT PO SCAM PAG SA WESTERN UNION IPAPADALA?
Ito ko katwiran ng UK BORDER AGENCY SA EMAIL NILA and other concerns
I just want to ask 1350 GB P is too much for a travel allowance.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ);

WHY DO WE USE WESTERN UNION INSTEAD OF BANK STATEMENTS, DRAFTS OR CHE QUES?
Before now, the UK Border Agency accepted Bank statements, Drafts and Che-ques as methods of submission of security deposits. Unfortunately, a lot of Visa applicants from Asia, Africa and some parts of Europe abused the method. These Applicants submitted copies of falsified documents, bank statements and dud che ques. Over the years, we have been saddled with the challenges of identifying these fraudulent Visa applicants and in a swift bid to curb their operations; we are in alliance with the Metropolitan police and Interpol. These dramatic situations prompted the U.K Border Agency & Home Office to revise the standard of operations hence, the annulment of the acceptance of Bank Statements, Drafts or Che ques and adoption of the WESTERN UNION as the ONLY method of submission of security deposits for all International Visa applicants.

WHY CAN'T EMPLOYERS BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SECURITY DEPOSIT?
Your Visa fees, Residence/ Work Permit fees and Health Insurance fees are shouldered by your Employer. As much as Employees are mandated to submit the security deposit of £1,350 GB P to show proofs of sufficient funds for their Basic Travel Allowance (BTA), Employers are as well mandated to submit a security deposit of £5,000 to show that they have sufficient funds to sponsor your stay in the United Kingdom. Therefore, it is a criminal offence and violation of the UK Immigration Acts of 2013 should any Employer be responsible for security deposit required by the Employee. Any Employer who flaunts this law in any way will be repatriated immediately


IS THIS SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDABLE OR JUST A ONE TIME PAYMENT?
The Security deposit of £1,350 GB P is not a payment, it is only a deposit required for verification within 24 hours and subject to retrieval upon completion of the 24 hour verification process. This means that the UK Border Agency will prompt you upon completion of the 24 hour verification period to return to any Money Gram agent and or Western Union Money Transfer and retrieve your funds back.


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE THE VISA APPLICATION TO BE PROCESSED & APPROVED AFTER THE SUBMISSION OF THE VISA REQUIREMENTS?
It takes approximately 3 to 4 working days for processing and approval of Visa applications. Hard copies of the approved visa documents will be dispatched via DH L Courier to applicant's mailing address stated in the Visa application form.


WHEN DO I VISIT THE BRITISH EMBASSY IN MY COUNTRY OF LOCATION FOR MY VISA STAMP?
Once we process and approve your visa documents, we will mail the hard copies to your stated address in your country of location and Fax copies to the UK Embassy in your country of location for their review and acceptance.Afterwards, we will book an appointment for you with the British Embassy and we will as well prompt you on your appointment date on when to visit the British Embassy in their country of location for the Visa stamp. The British Embassy will not grant audience to Visa applicants seeking visa guidance or inquiries, please contact us for Visa guidance, inquiries or any information pertinent to your Visa application.

You can ONLY visit the British Embassy once your Visa documents have been dully processed, approved, mailed to your address and on confirmation of your appointment date with the British Embassy.

If you agree to these terms and condition get back to me with the following documents so that I can send it to my husband to begin processing your traveling documents. he works at the British embassy in Cameroon and he will be back only for holidays or when i put to birth since i am pregnant now. so processing these documents will not take much time as he works with the Embassy.
