  2. I am suppose to visit England from 5 to 22 June to cover ICC World Twenty20, a cricket tournament scheduled to take place in the United Kingdom in June 2009. For which I have been granted media accreditation as well approval by the home cricket boards both England and Pakistan.

    But, ‘Lahore visa office’ is giving atleast 2 months time to submit visa application which is intersecting the event days.

    Please, advise the possibility to obtain England visa.

    I wish I could answer your question but unfortunately I do not know much about appeals and visas. I hope someone else will reply to your question.

  4. Hello
    I applied at a UK university and got admission there. I have already paid half of my course fee. I haven’t applied for a visa yet but the problem is that I don’t want to go to the UK because I got a better offer from the US. My family keeps insisting that I go to the UK instead of US because the fees have already been paid. It seems that the only way out is to somehow get my UK visa application rejected. Can anyone please tell me how can I get my application rejected without letting my family know that I did it deliberately? Can someone also tell me that what kind of a reason is given on a visa rejection letter (Is it a general reason or a specific one)? An example would be deeply appreciated!
    After all the Ivy League is much better than LSE.
