Is Your Application In Trouble?

On occasions even the most straightforward Visa applications run into problems. Those problems can be medical conditions or criminal convictions, or visa officers misapplying the instructions or assessing you as not eligible for the visa you applied for. Quick intervention can often save an application from being declined.
