Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
She is applying for an extension to her exiting visa. Nothing changes in terms of her visa conditions and she can continue working.My wife is currently here on a spouse/partner permit which gives her permission to work. Do you know if the family visa also gives her permission to work?
And how long is she likely to be able to stay in the UK on a family visa? It doesn't say on the webpage.
Her current visa is limited leave to remain, i.e. it has an end date. Settlement or Indefinite leave to remain does not provided she doesn't leave the UK for 2 or more years. Close to the expiry of her next visa and shortly before reaching 5 years residence (counted from date of entry to the UK), she applies for ILR (indefinite leave to remain) and has to meet the financial requirement again and the life in the UK test. Best start saving as it is also expensive, current cost is £2389 plus £800 if you want super priority 24 hour service.I'm also confused over how this differs from settlement (indefinite leave to remain), which seems to be a different process.
Ideally describe about 5-10 persons who you feel were got in touch most recent in past/present should be fine. Any reply to that question won't affect the application.andrewgibson wrote: ↑Wed Sep 18, 2019 1:37 pmHello everybody, my wife's applying for a family visa to stay with me in the UK. One of the questions on the application is:
"What family or friends do you have in the country where you were born and/or any other country whose nationality you hold?"
Does anybody know what the definition of friends is in this case? The list of people my wife calls friends runs the spectrum from close friends to not so close friends (like ex-work colleagues, neighbours etc) to people she hasn't been in touch with for years. We're not sure what they're looking for in the answer to this question.
