Does Anyone Have An Idea About Visa Appeals For Working Holiday Maker Permits?

Hi all,

could someone please give me advise on appealing a UK visa refusal case? the visa refused was working holiday permit visa

Here are the facts:

- Im a frequent traveller to the UK

- Im going on a long holiday and intend to legally work while there and I am very eligible to apply for the visa

- the EOC kept saying she wasnt satisfied with my reasons for applying for the visa. she thinks i dont know what the working holiday maker visa is for in otherwords, i dont know what im applying for and i could not give her a detailed itinery of how i want to spend my holday for 2 years. (for crying out loud am i supposed to keep a calender of daily happenings of what i want to do in the UK?) and besides when i was filling my application form, it was optional to provide an itinery.

- she also said i dint state famous sites i'd like to see in the UK. she didnt ask me to state such places and for crying out loud would i be visiting big ben, trafalgar square etc. every year that i take a trip to the UK?

- finally she said she's not satisfied or sure of the source of funds that i have in my bank statement. she never even asked me about the source of funds during the interview and shes not saying the funds are not enough to support my travel.

Could someone please advise me on this kind of case? thanks.

I cant predicit for sure but on your application, u have to state that u r going 4 holiday and that IF WORK COMES INCIDENTAL u want to be able to do it. Then you provide other documents including proof of funds, proof of where u'll stay and other requirements.

Don't think you need to holiday throughout your two years, just name about five or six tourist centers, then its always better if you have a relation in UK. If your relation or friend is willing to invite you, it makes it better. Your sole reason then will be reuniting with your relation and visiting the tourist centers. Its always better if it is your relation inviting rather than a friend( so I perceive). Don't forget - your main purpose is to reunite with your relation and visit tourist center and work will be incidental to your holiday.

Hi

Am currently on working holiday and I guess your application was refused becos u stated dat u wanted to work. The visa is only for holiday makers dat would not mind working but you must note that the work MUST be INCIDENTAL to your holiday. It means that your sole purpose is holiday but if you are able to get a job then you will do it.

Working holiday maker visa emphasis is on Holiday and it was expected of you to give a clear view of what you intended to cause this will give the ECO the impression that you really have holiday in mind.saying you were going to visit sheffield,wales essex and others in my own opinionwas really ambiguous ooo!She needed specific from like I say I want to vist Ogun-State,dt snot being specific but if I say i want to visit Ogun-state and visit, Olumo Rock,Birikisu Shrine etc,that gives a more clearer picture that I know whatI want to do.

Guy you really gave thema good enough reason to refuse you and you were even called fro an interview its been a long time I had that they called for that, You narrowly missed it!Well you could appeal or better still re-apply again and address the Ecos points of refusal and please your itinerary is very important ooooooo,its not optional for applicants from Africa especially Nigeria.

well i just think she's had a good 4 years experience and knowledge about these things from her thread in "UK Visas - visa appeal process" she talked about her sister being refused visa. you can search for "UK Visas - visa appeal process" on nairaland here. and please give your own suggestion to my question. thanks.

Please, do kindly paste my initial response to your issue and your last post as well (you made more clarifications) on the Uk Appeal thread, so that the others can take it up from there. I am not on my computer right now so i cant do it myself. They might suggest you re-apply rather than going through the appeal. Thanks.

i stated the places ill be visiting as in london, sheffield, wales, essex etc. i explained i had friends and family there so im basically not going to be in one place. thats my idea of a vacation visiting places, friends and family and taking time out to rest. maybe she should have been more specific as to ask me if there are any tourist attraction sites i want to visit.

i also said i wasnt planning on taking any serious work since im going to be moving around. she asked me what kind of jobs have i considered taking up and i said shop jobs like tesco jobs, asda etc. babysitting etc. nothing too tasking. aparently, i dont think she had a problem with that because she didnt state it as one of the reasons for refusal.

thanks.
