Please note that as the onus is upon the individual customers to ensure
that they satisfy the requirements set out in the guidance material that
accompanies each and every application form, UK Visas and Immigration is
not able to give, indicate or advise upon the outcome of any such
application prior to it being given full and careful consideration.
Therefore, you are advised to read through the guidance prior to
submitting a future application.
We are unable to advise you any further on your enquiry and you should
seek immigration advice if you need help with permission to stay in the
UK. Immigration advisers can help you with immigration matters, including
completion of forms and representing you at a tribunal. The Office of the
Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) regulates immigration advisers,
which means they must meet certain standards.
