Just got my passport and papers back. Looks like I got turned down for my visa.
Evidently, you have to submit a lot of actual hard paperwork like bank statements, check stubs and other evidence from your sponsor. Glad they told me that... Seriously, I looked up that stuff and nowhere in the application or in the help indices did it say that you had to provide that information. It did mention however that you had to have proof, but how can you prove something like that you have a job? How about calling my boss? You know how much he makes because he's a sub-postmaster!
I'm just really frustrated. The appeals process begins immediately.
