Spouse Visa Applications - PAKISTAN TIMELINES ONLY

Post by CR001 » Sat Jan 16, 2016 11:26 pm

To all members who contribute to this topic/thread, the following are the guidance to adhere to so that we do not end up with a timeline thread that runs into 1274 pages as the other one did and has become a discussion thread, rather than an easily readable timeline thread :

1. This topic is for timelines and timeline updates ONLY.

2. ANY discussions, chit chat, question such as 'Any news for applications from Lahore...' ect, will be deleted and the user issued with a warning.

3. Most members who contribute to this thread will already have other recent queries or threads on the forum, i.e. 'Spouse Visa - Please Advise' etc. If you need to ask a member something specific about their application, click on their name, search for their most recent NON timeline post and ask the question there. You are of course free to use the PM function for this too if you choose.

4. There will be zero tolerance of any abuse of the timeline thread.

5. No posting of personal contact details, please see Forum Terms & Conditions (click), particularly point 5.

6. The Format for posting your timeline is below.

7. This topic/thread will be monitored daily.

Also I need to mention for people who want to change jobs - I changed my previous job on 1st December and sent the new employment contract to Sheffield, wasn't asked but I just sent it anyway.

PS. Mrs was refused twice on a Family Visitor Visa - Reason for refusal was that ECO wasn't satisfied that she will leave the country at the end of Visit Visa.
