How important it is to show friends and relatives in the UK

UK.Visas.Consulting

To show or not to show you friends and relatives in the UK? That is the question.
Unfortunately, many visa agencies take the easy path when they advise their clients. What do we mean?
For example, a client has a boyfriend in the UK. The first advice that this client receives from such visa agencies is NOT to show her boyfriend in the UK.

What drives such visa agencies?
Obviously not your future plans! Only their own benefit.

It is believed that women who travel to the UK with the purpose to visit their boyfriends, a priori, do not have a chance to get a UK visa.

Fortunately, built on our practice, this myth remains only a myth. For sure, each situation should be assessed on its own merits. And that’s why UK.Visas.Consulting consider each case individually to understand what will be better and worse to do. First of all, we need to understand how current visa application can impact your future plans. One thing we can say for sure is that if later you apply for a Fiance/Spouse UK visa, the British visa officers will check your previous visa applications. And if, at some point, you did not provide information about your boyfriend, then you should probably prepare to be refused for a UK visa (unless you prepare cover letters in advance). A refusal for a Fiance/Spouse UK visa is a very unpleasant experience and, moreover you lose almost $ 2,300.

Our advice: do not follow the recommendations of only one visa agency. It is better to have several points of view. Thus, you will be able to evaluate your situation and understand what you need to do.
