Hi
I am really amazed how many replies me and Nesrin got to our post about 'she got her visa' I think it is a very important time that many members here will have to face at sometime the stressful time of applying for a visa be it for a visit to another country or a settlement visa. When someone gets refused for a visa for whatever reason they seek solace and ask the reason why, yet for other people reading this type of post who have had the sorrow of a refusal for a visa can take heart from posts like mine and Nesrin and really have the support of members who may be facing the same situation. The outcome of this 20 minute interview is too imense to put into words, okay it is only a visitor's visa and she can always re-apply but the joy of her getting it and receiving her phone call to see how happy she was will never leave my thoughts, my mum is so happy she cannot travel to Istanbul to see Nesrin so to actually see her in England is just too precious. I would like to thank Turkish class and all the members here who replied and those that are members here it really did mean alot. I hope everyone going through the same process will start their own thread and have a happy ending

Hi Richard,

Soon my husband and I will be also facing a similar situation when my mother in law also tries to get a visitor's visa in a couple of months in Istanbul.

Right now we are also wondering what do we need to do in order to help her chances of getting one being that right now it doesn't look good because she is living alone in Turkey. She has three sons, one lives in another part of Turkey with his wife, one living in Germany and the other(my husband) living in the USA. Of course my husband will try to apply for her to come to the USA legally, but that won't be until he becomes US citizen in another 2 1/2 years, yet this is such a long time still before she can come here.

Can you tell me exactly what kind of document evidence they ask for during the interview and what kind of questions they asked Nesrin during the interview?

Also if any of the other TC memebers know of any information please let me know. Many thanks

Mina

Hi Mina,
I wish you good luck in your mother in laws application for a visitor visa and hope I can help anyway I can. When Nesrin had her first interview Mina the main reason she got turned down is she did not have sufficent funds in the bank even though she had just paid for her visa and passport and tickets and her monthly salary had just about gone. In your case Mina I think that someone should put some funds into your mother in laws bank account if she has one to show that she can support herself during her trip. I would have only one sponsor Mina because it confuses them at the consulate if you put that you and your husband will sponsor her trip, one person is adequate enough usually best for the person to have a healthy bank balance and show this in a photo copy of a bank statement (when sending a statement please black out the account number). The second most important thing is communication they like to know how much contact you have had with your mother in law for example photographs when you met her, phone bills when you were talking to her by phone and even e-mails if you correspond that way this will help. I would also suggest your senator write you a letter confirming your relationship with your mother in law which will help very much. The questions can vary Mina as Nes first interview and her second, they can try and catch you out on something as trivial as your mother in laws birthday date or if you have visited her something to do with the area she lives in. The questions they asked Nesrin first time was how long have you been in your relationship for? when did you meet him and how many times has he come to Istanbul to see you. They then asked about her bank account and that I am sure was the first refusal stamp as Nesrin had no sufficent funds in her bank account. The second interview she had in my case my M.P. letter which you should have Mina I think from your local senator, they asked her for some documentation example my phone bill with Nes number on and some photographs and e-mails she produced when asked about relationship evidence. The most important other thing was a copy of my passport showing my visits to Turkey. I hope this helps a little Mina it is different in every case and of course the person relationship to yourself and your husband. I hope some other replies come soon keep us informed please
