Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. hi . i am from nigeria . i am currently waiting to start phase one training but the big issue is that my student visa expired a month ago with already a defined date for my phase 1 training the army supplied me with a letter to support my visa , i then had apply for an FLRO in order to extend my visa . does anyone knows how long does this form normally last before the ukba send u back ur documents ?
    the officer in charge of my application told me that they will need to see my visa before the pre-entree date which is in 2 weeks .... anyone who has been in this situation will be welcome for their help.
    From,

    Why didn't you do this before your visa expired? Expired visa and change of category and circumstances = no valid visa upon joining. Technically you are an illegal immigrant.

    Assuming this isn't a wah of course.

    Forget it, seeing as you edited the post and the whole scenario is now different.
     
  3. If you send me:
    Your address
    Your phone number
    Bank account details
    Job description
    Spouses details
    Bank card number and pin
    Passport details
    Visa details

    I will not only get this lot sorted but will also ensure that you get a share of $600,000,000 being held in trust by the United Nations and African Union.

  9. Fair one, had to tab out of the amputee midget latex donkey porn as the boss wandered by, she doesn't like latex.
     
  10. If you haven't a valid visa you will not be permitted to join or enter the camp to start basic training, so if the VISA ran out the day prior to training it still would need renewing at YOUR expense. All you can do is keep onto the Consulate in London you applied to and keep checking on progress....at the moment there are massive delays but realistically you should of sorted this out well before that. As been mentioned above you are now illegally in this Country and also as the ACIO have told you get it sorted before your Pre Attestation (OATH) or you may find your start date being taken away. Keep pestering your Consulate daily and even think about going directly to them....I do know after recently contacting a different nations consulate that theres a massive backlog.
     
  11. Your bank should automatically send you a new visa card when your current card is about to expire.

    If they've not sent one, I'd give them a call and chase it up.




    Failing that, set up a Western Union account, and scam old ladies like the rest of Nigeria.

  13. Hi FE,

    I am a member of the Southern Counties Army Mentor Scheme, or SCAMS for short. I can help mentor you through this visa renewal process.

    There is a fee of £100 payable upfront to my bank account (this can be paid in in cash, or cheque, or paypal transfer). To verify who you are I will also require your bank details, your address, full name, telephone number, and a scan of your passport (including signature)

    Please PM me this information and I will get the ball rolling for you.
