Wouldn't worry about the address change on the bank statements. It sounds like both types of statements you have meet the requirements (either on bank letterhead or electronic statements stamped on every page).

Thank you so much for all the help. I finally submitted my application and have the Biometric appointment at Croydon Center tomorrow.

I have a couple of questions about this appointment.

1. I chose to upload the documents myself on Sopra Steria. Once the pdf file has been uploaded there is no way to open and check the uploaded file. I am doing this on Chrome. I have checked the files and the names many a times but just wanted to be sure by opening the uploaded file again and checking. Is there a way to do this?

2. Do I need to bring all the original documents with me for tomorrow?

3. Any other tips for this Croydon Center appointment for tomorrow?

Thank you so much

Two more questions:

1. Does my wife (sponsor) need to attend this biometrics appointment?

2. While the application is pending, can I apply for a Shengan Visa for Italy based on my current Tier 2?

Thanks

1. No.

2. Yes. However you can't travel out of the UK while you have an application pending with HO.

1. Not entirely sure. I never tried to open any of the files after uploading them when I submitted my application. Just went back into my application (for some reason can still do this months afterwards) and it appears I am able to add or remove files but not view anything that has been uploaded.

2. I believe UKVCAS would have sent a confirmation email with what to bring. You don't need them necessarily but might not be a bad idea to take them as they check the quality and legibility of your scanned documents and having the originals with you would allow the opportunity to re-scan a document if they find any issues.

3. Make sure you bring the applicant's passport and print out the sheet with the QR code for the appointment. Don't bring any unnecessary friends/family as they may not let them in.
