Thanks for replying - would they accept the 320£ and 1300£ a month salary combined for the application ?Wanderer wrote:It's £1550 per month.
Many thanks - I've heard of carers visas aswell, do they still exist for visa applications? If I want to get a visa for my spouse, being my main carer. Am not sure. Thanks again.CR001 wrote:I think that getting PIP higher care allowance might exempt you from the £18,600pa financial requirement. Will look into and post back later.
Hi - just wanted to know if you were able to find out anymore info on this ? am currently working part time, but if going full time will help me, I am able to do this and being offered the 18k full time salary before tax.CR001 wrote:No, there is no 'carers visa'. Spouse visa is the correct one for you. Will come back a bit later and let you know about the exemption.
Thank you so much - so my PIP carers allowance higher rate would mean the income threshold of £18.6k would not apply, is that correct ? what I wanted to know is, if i did decide to go full time and showed in my bank I had a salary plus PIP would this go against me, or would this be in my favour as it shows I have a good savings for myself and spouseCR001 wrote:Apologies for not getting back to you last night.

So me working definitely helps the situation then is that correct ? house i have is given to me by my father who done a lot of property development work years back, so house is pretty much mortgage free. Only thing i'd have to worry about is council tax, bills etc which would come out of my salary from work. So I will be able to show that I would still have more then 320£ every month.Obie wrote:You will qualify if you can demonstrate that once your housing cost and council tax is deducted from your earnings, the amount you have left is the same or above the rate of income support that a family of your size will be entitled to.
You have been told by whom? David cameron or Home Secretary ?kash0114 wrote:Heyy guys
I am looking to get a spouse visa for my wife (from pakistan) who I get married to soon and have been told today the 18.6k earning requirement has been lifted and that you only need to be earning now in order for visa application to be made ? Can someone please clarify if this is correct and possible direct me to any useful resources please.
Many thanks in advance.
