    Visa entry correction or extension? URGENT

    Dear Nepalisamajuk members

    I am studying in a university in London. The level is MSC. When I applied for the visa to come london in September 2010, the UKBA granted me only 5 months visa. while my course duration is one year. I have paid all the fees of the universtiy. When I talked to the consultancy about reapplying, when I was in Nepal, they suggested me not to do so rather to come to London and apply for extension. After I came here, A asked a Nepali solicitor, but he said it was not possible to correct the visa. but when I talked to my university visa handling section, I knew that it was possible to apply for entry correction and i did the same about two months before. my visa expires on 14 FEb 2011.But i have not got any reply from the UKBA, university said it gets corrected and asked me not to worry. (last time university mailed me was 10 days before asking not to worry but i think its too late now), now the problem is I have put only 1200 in bank but later on I came to know if the visa under 6 months 5600 for 3 months (university is outside london). But the maintenance fund that i held in bank during the visa application in nepal is still in bank and is sufficient to use now for visa extension but i do not know the UKBA accepts or not the maintenance fund from Nepali Bank. Any person who knows the solution can suggest me. Any suggestion will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

    Dear Raj,As long as the money is in your control and the bank statements confirm your name on it, it should be fine.

    evidence of funds in the joint account, in the parents' account are acceptable provided it is in your control and/or the purpose of your education, with birth certificates to prove relationship.

    Dear Raj
    It is not necessary that you should hold the account in your name. You can rely on your parents bank statements. I have recenetly submitted my presentation to Excel Education Limited how students can extend their Tier 4 (General) students visas. You need to have a valid CAS letter to score 30 points.
    You have raised your concern how you can satisfy maintenance (funds). Please follow these steps before you submit your Tier 4 (General) application:
    You must have enough money available (or already paid to your education provider), you will score 10 points in points assessment. Unless you score these points, you cannot apply under Tier 4 (General). The money you will need depends on the length of your course and the location where you study.
    To score 10 points, you must show that you can pay your course fees for your first year of study (or for your next period of study, if you are applying to continue a course) and your living costs for up to two months.
    Inner London 800 x2 months= 1600 plus tuition fees
    Outer London 600x 2 months=1200 plus tution fees

    When you show that you have enough money to pay your course fees and living costs, this money must take the form of:
     cash funds in the bank (including savings accounts and current accounts; and/or
     a loan letter; and/or
     official financial or government sponsorship available to you.
    Other accounts or financial instruments (such as shares, bonds, overdrafts, credit cards and pension funds) are not acceptable,.
    If your money is in overseas currency, then you should write the closing balance in pounds sterling in your application form. The UKBA use the official exchange rate on the OANDA website .
    You can use money held in an account owned by your parent(s) or legal guardian. You will need to show evidence that your are related to them, and that you have their written permission to use this money
    Personal bank or building society statements must show:
     your name, or the name(s) of your parent(s) or legal guardian;
     the account number;
     the date of the statement;
     the financial institution's name and logo; and
     the amount of money available.
    You cannot use mini-statements from cash machines (ATMs) as evidence.
    You can use electronic bank statements from an online account if they include all the
    information above. Each electronic statement should bear the bank's official stamp on every page, or you must provide a supporting letter from the bank, on company headed paper, confirming the statements' authenticity.
    If you want to use a joint account as proof of your money, you must be named on the account along with at least one other person.
    UKBA will not accept statements that show the balance in the account on a particular day, as these do not show that you hold enough funds for the full 28-day period required.
    I wish you good luck for your application.
    Regards
    Raju Thapa
