Tom below are the ECMs refusal points (in italics) and my comments
In paragraph one, sentence three of the "Decision" the ECM states: -
"However you have not provided any evidence of your husbands' employment or the support he provides you."
This is incorrect, on both accounts; I provided a copy of my Contract Offer Letter c/w the terms and conditions of my employment. Also my spouse provided a current statement from her personal bank account held at the Zenith Bank in Port Harcourt Nigeria.
In paragraph one, sentence four of the "Decision" the ECM states: -
"You have not submitted any evidence of your husbands' personal circumstances and where he currently resides"
This is also incorrect, on three of the documents provided, those being the Nigeria Registrar's Certificate, BUPA documentation and my Contract Offer Letter, all clearly state my residence in Nigeria on the Shell Residential Area, Port Harcourt and my home in the Netherlands, in Amsterdam. The Contract Offer Letter, also clearly states the work location as being Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
Further to the above, my circumstances are as follows - employed as a Principal QA/QC Engineer, working for The Shell Petroleum Development Company in Nigeria. (SPDC)
In paragraph one, sentence five of the "Decision" the ECM states: -
"I am therefore not satisfied that you have shown that you have sufficiently strong ties with Nigeria and that you would be encouraged to leave the UK at the end of your proposed visit."
This is a fallacy my spouse has travelled outside Nigeria to many destinations, within Europe and South Africa and has never broken or abused the conditions of any visa granted. The dates of travel and destination were mentioned on the initial application also photocopies of the visas and the original passports which held the visas were provided - Why would she change and decide to abuse a UK issued visa?
Also provide were documents pertaining to land, five plots which she has purchased in Lagos and River States. Further to this my spouse has family ties, four sisters and two
brothers who reside in the Port Harcourt environs.
In paragraph two, sentence one of the "Decision" the ECM states: -
"You have stated in your visa application form that your husband will pay all the costs of your visit. On the evidence provided and for the reasons stated above I am not satisfied that he is able to do so."
This is incorrect, I provided both the terms and conditions of employment which state my net current day rate and another amount of approximately paid per calendar to cover logisitics in Nigeria. Also provided a current statement of my account held in the Netherlands, showing a healthy balance.
