Here, is an instance of the magic an appeal does in the event of visa refusal. On 23rd September, 2008, Lawale Kolapo Esq, a senior lawyer based here in the country was denied visa to visit his British family in the UK though his application met the requirements.

For some reasons which were listed by the UK border agency of the British High Commission in Abuja, which made them doubt if he was “genuinely seeking entry as a visitor for a limited period not exceeding 6 months or that he intends to leave the UK at the end of the visit?

He was also banned under the immigration rules from entry to the UK until 23/09/2018, ten years precisely.

Kolapo contracted the services of Harvard Consults, the decision was appealed and on 1st of December, all the actions taken against him were reversed and he went ahead to visit his family.
