close to you and make the deposit or you can tell your friend or relatives who live in other country to make deposit from

for verification of fund because it is still your money which you will have to retreive once your flight lands into london.

We are following procedures to avoid error during verification and also avoid our clients saying that we asked them to pay us when the
host family has taken care of our official bills and other traveling expenses. We hope you understand the steps we have stated for you to
follow in making this deposit.

1. Ask a family friend or relatives living outside india where the country can make a tranfer using western union money
to make the deposit on your behalf as the sender to your names as the reciever to london.
2. You can travel to a nearby country very close to you that can make western union transfer with your ID or passort and make the deposit,
using your name as the reciever and a trusted friend or relative that doesn't bear the same surnames with you as the sender to you.

We hope we have explained the basic information and the direct procedures which you are to follow and adhere to and meanwhile do send us the
other necessary documents so that we can start up the procession as soon as possible such as your scan copy of your international passport,
your filled visa forms and two recent passport photography.
