Yes I am on a multiple entry visitors visa (C Business Visitors) valid for 6 months and my other partner holds the same category however the validity is 5 years.
Note: Our family does not hold any UK Visa yet.
Awaiting your response.
Its been a while since I have not received a reply.
I had my own business in Pakistan. i was very successful. Due to the current situation there when you are doing good you get noticed by the a certian groups. These particular groups demand extortion money by threatning the local businessman in the country (particularly in Karachi where I belong).
It is worth mentioning here that the so called "parchi system" is the most effective one for extorting money from shopkeepers and businessmen and I had been a victim of that. If you fail to provide such amount in the specefid time, they will kill you. They had demanded PkR 5million (approx USD50,000) for which I will not visit the country anymore.
I have sufficient documents + bank transactions of my company which will prove that I had to transfer my money in Bahrain. I have now formed my company there and my funds are safe but me and my family cannot travel to Pakistan until the situation gets any better which I honestly "DOUBT"
This is why I'm looking where I can settle down and start my own restaurant or perhaps continue the business that I am without having to visit to Pakistan even in the worst case scenario like in the middle east if your sponsor is upsets and demands more sponsor fees then you'd had it. Also looking at the current situation of the GCC states things are not very promising and i everything becomes worse comes to worse have to travel back to your country.
Hope that clarifies.
