I guess its a waiting game
Dear VFS GLOBALI’m writing to beg you to reconsider your refusal of VISA to Miss Yulida Aryantie. I’m not sure why you are calling into question the genuineness of our friendship. Surely correspondence between us on a daily basis by messenger, mobile and Skype must count for something? We have not met in person but have spent many hours (days even chatting online). Two more genuinely bonded friends it would be hard to find.Yuli is my constant online companion and i would give anything to be able to visit her myself in Indonesia but unfortunately I don’t have full use of my legs due to a type of muscular dystrophy called ‘Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy’ which makes flying without a companion to help with things such as toilets (on planes) almost impossible. Thats not to say I live a lesser life because of it. I’m the Director of my own company (Listed on Companies House) www.withdesign.co.uk. I’m a professional graphic designer with arguably one of the biggest companies in the world as my client ‘Tesco - retail’ designing with £4b budgets. I drive a car. Raise funds for charities. Produce photography…. the list goes on. I’m serious about it only being a two week stay as she has a 12 year old son to return home to that needs his mum. I have a two bed flat in North London and I thought it would be an amazing christmas present to us both to spend the festivities together.
Im of good stature, solvent and with no criminal record. I’m not sure what else i can do to prove I would maintain her stay… I’d gladly pay a bond of some type if I had to, just so she could be here for a relatively short stay.
