Spouse visa as I am self employed

Post by UA2015 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 12:16 am

Dear members,
I will be very great full If someone can help me regarding spouse visa from Pakistan for my wife. I got Nikah ( Islamic marriage) last month and proper wedding ( Rukhsti) will be held in January.
My wife had booked her A1 listening & speaking and also TB test as well. I will be applying online from Uk.
I’m self employed from last five years and my earnings are around 22k. Kindly can someone tell me that if I’m
Paying 5k tax etc out of 22k so it’s left 17k, is this a problem or not? Does your income have to be more than 18500£ After pay your tax, if it’s less after you pay your tax dues will that be still match with home office requirements?

Also can I apply spouse visa for my wife even it’s just Nikah ? She haven’t move in with me as this will happen in January. We have pictures of Nikah and also in restaurant for dinner etc, also what’s app chat and calls etc, I want to apply because as soon as In January she leave her parents home and move with me, we will fly to Uk as she will have her visa before that( if I apply now). Or shall I wait until January and apply after ?
Also as self employed, how long bank statement I have to provide? Is it 6 months ? ( as per other posts for employed people)
Also I will get copies of my tax return from HMRC, so one last year should be enough or should I provide all last 5 years?
She will send me all original papers and I will submit them from here. I was reading on other posts that they don’t need there in Pakistan if I will submit them here online or in person? In Pakistan they only need application form and her passport? Am I right?
Will appreciate your help.

you can read about the self employment at following official guidance page 58-65
https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... -ext_1.pdf

Preferably apply when your wife starts living with you with more subsisting relationship evidences despite your nikkah ceremony is a legal marriage and will be valid for visa purposes.

Hi can you please assist me with these questions.

1. Can I ( sponsor) travel while my wife spouse visa in process?
2. I also have taken a loan and paying it back. Credit history is good too, will that make any difference in decision?

1. In covering letter give your new address and also redirect your old address through royal mail but remember BRP card will be sent through DX courier which wont be redirected if the UKVI wont follow your new address.

2. yes as proof of subsisting relationship

3. https://www.vfsglobal.co.uk/pk/en/premi ... ority-visa

4. As a precaution just fill and attach it.

UA,

VFA4A appendix is required if you are settled in the country, rather than a British born citizen. I know this, as I am also self employed and did not need to complete this form, since I am British.
