Hi Richard,

I have another idea. It is clear your visa application was not clearly assessed. I would definitely contact as your local and regional elected representatives. They can make things happen, and put pressure on the powers that be.

I belong to a site : Visajourney.com and have received so much helpful information. They don't address tourist visas per se, but accross the board, whenever a visa is stalled, or rejected, contacting congressional reps almost always seems to have an impact.

I continue to wish you good luck!

Christine

Hi Loveprague,

All of us know what you are talking about. I always feel a sadness when buying a 10 euro visa to Turkey, thinking of the pain and emberassment Turkish people have to go through to, in 9 out of 10 cases, get a rejection!

Papers of a job or a student at a university or the proof that she owns a house in Turkey might help too. These are 2 factors for her to turn back to Turkey, and such reasons help.

When we applied for Kadir, on behalf of my father who was going to be the sponsor, I also sent his payslips from his job, 3 in total, to show that we too are financially stable.

I also advice you to contact Lyndie from this website. She is rather busy lately, but I hope she can find time to reply you. She knows an awful lot about visas, and managed to win a visa appeal for her Turkish friend, who is now studying for a year in England.

Oh and now i come to think of it.. You two are engaged right? Pictures of that ceremony (if you had one) might come in helpful, and a receipt of the engagement ring. That should at least take away the problem about having a serious relationship or not!

ps - As mentioned by someone else, travelling with a tourist agency indeed makes all easier, but in this case would not win your ticket back and cost a hell lot of money too.

Hi,
Firstly I would like to thank all members on this forum for all the help and advice they gave to me and Nesrin it does mean such alot, I feel like this forum is the place to be when of course questions and advice on this very subject might just help someone else who may be going through the same scenario. I have an update today on this subject and hope that we can succeed this time. I have had good feedback off my local M.P. who I contacted last week with regard to their help and advice, they are now processing a letter for us and we also have enough other documents to prove our relationship should they need this. Thanks to Christine and Deli_kizin for the M.P. advice and cpupilot a very good idea about the flight I have looked into this aswell. Thanks SunFlowerSeed and ahalliwell each post I read and it is good to get your support. I hope that I missed nobody out here, we will just make sure now this week that we get everything correct and I told Nesrin to make sure her account status was properley accounted this is very important and I do pray we will succeed this time, we have new date for her trip so we just hope her interview goes without a hitch. I will keep you posted thanks all
Is that enough flowers?

Yes that is correct - we (UK) have members of parliament for all regions across the country, who are elected to become our government. A member of parliament does not necessarily belong to the current government, they may be of a different party. But if you "lobby" (write) to your local MP they should always try and help their constituents (local citizens) sort out any problems. There are also clinics where you can see you MP face to face.

Ahh of course! Thanks for clearing that up We have the same system here, with the difference that they'd never help anybody in need.

That reminds when the poor farmer approached Erdogan asking for help. And Erdogan was so mean to him...

I did only say "they should" try and help!! Not quite the same as "will always help" Thankfully, Loverprague has a good MP!!
