i am a resident in uk- i have been living with her since March 22 to date in philipines extending my visa - we originally intended to go to london just for 4 months then in couple of years relocate with her 4 children. She has no savings or proof of bank funds is that the reason its say rejected under paragraph 41.If we apply again or appeal and is refused will it count against us in future. will it stop her travelling to places like Hong kong and singapore



If you appeal or apply again, it should not be counted against her. In any event, the UKBA should not have refused the Visa as your wife has an Article 8 right, i.e. the right to a Private and family Life, as do you.


If you have been granted Leave to Appeal, I suggest you appeal.


I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.
