Applying(extending) residence permit

Post by Qwerty123456789 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 6:19 pm

Hello
My wife has 33 months residence permit (which expires in August 2019) as family member of Me (I have PR for 4 year). She is continuously living and working full time in UK since November 2016. She has received her current visa( permit) overseas.

We would like to apply for new visa( residence permit) in July .
Would it be same application we had done before or is it any different ?
What’s the fee and requirements?
Thanks

Topic moved to the family immigration sub forum as not relevant to the eea EU sub forum.

She has a VISA under UK immigration rules, not a residence permit under the eea rules. You have ILR under the UK immigration rules and not PR under eea EU rules. There is a big difference and different rules.

She applies for an extension on form FLR M, meeting the same financial requirement and English A2. Plus evidence of 2 years cohabitation.

Current fee is £1033 for standard application plus £1000 IHS fee.

Thanks for replay
I have PR( previously was married to Eu citizen ,hence optain PR in 2015).

Coming back to my wife, she has past the English test A1 , in 2016 in order to apply for her visa .

Does she need to pass it again?
What could be a proof of our 2 years cohabitation ?
Thanks

Hello again

As it a little bit confusing for me. I am thinking that extending existing visa ( family member of permanent resident permit) should be more easy and straight forward. But looks like it’s not .

1) she would need to proof again her knowledge of English (previously it was A1) now it has to be A2?

Both of us from outside Eu , I have PR (from my previous marriage). She received her visa in November 2016 from overseas,we submitted our divorce certificate then, do we need to submit it again?

3) she was applying online , printed out application and sent it to visa centre , she had an account there, would it be the same one or she need to create different one?

Sorry if those questions sound naive , we just trying to get ready beforehand for the process
Thanks

Within 28 days before the 2.5 year residence mark counted from the date she entered the UK or before her visa expires.

Unless personal circumstances/visa fee/rules not changing then preferably extension should be applied very close to visa expiry for enjoying the full length of visa and avoiding any shortfall towards ILR in future.

I was counting toward it too,but put into consideration that the first visa was issued for 33 months and time it takes to process it (around 6 months ) then both visa combaining would be just over 5 years, obviously there is a gamble here to that Ukba would process it within a month.

So if current visa expires 20/08 the earliest she can apply is 23/07 ?
Once again thanks

She entered U.K. 20/11/16 , then 2.5 years will be 20/05/19 , take away 28 days would make it 23/04/19 she can start the process ?
Are my calculations correct?
Thanks
