UK Visas and Immigration,

Dear Sir/Madam,
Thank you for your enquiry dated 14th January about a freedom of
information request.
Our response to your enquiry will involve asking for or disclosing your
personal data.  We cannot do this via ‘’, which is a
public website.  I would therefore be grateful if you would let us have
your personal e-mail and the query to which we can reply.

Please note the onus is upon individual customers to ensure that they
satisfy the requirements for the visa they are applying for.  Guidance
material accompanies each and every application and should be considered
when making an application. 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. 

Directing you to the guidance material is the only advice we can give you.
If you need any further help you should seek independent immigration
advice. 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 mean they must meet certain standards.
