Keeping my fingers crossed for you and your hubby. Wishing you a positive outcome. Please update us when you hear back. I’m going to be going through this spouse visa process in a few months. Really appreciate all the info shared on this board.

Wishing you the best Fififadi. Did you include a letter explaining the overstay? I’m going to have to do the same in the near future. I’d appreciate any tips you may have
Thanks so much!
Yes, explained in cover letter briefly, but explained in the Application form with a little more detail. I did a cover letter as a sponsor but my husband also did one acknowledging his over staying, and explaining why this happened.

I would love to provide tips, but i have no idea how it will go just yet. Really hoping for a miracle.

You will get visa no problems
Because he leave uk voluntary.
Not by public funds.
Did he buy his own ticket to go back.

If yes no problem.

You will get visa if you follow apendex fm .

It depends for what. If he went there because he suspected he has TB or HIV, that's fine. You can read this:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/nhs-entitle ... alth-guide

Access to other services, even if he wasn't asked to pay, is abuse of the NHS system and weights in decisions.

My wife was illegal. We went to the hospital one day because she was really ill. She spent the night there and was discharged later.

I wrote them a letter asking to pay because she is not entitled to free NHS. They sent me a £850 bill. I paid it. As that bill was paid, the fact that she used the NHS was never held against her.

Hi Spreekhan

Yes, he brought his own ticket to go back home.

I did apply via Appendix FM - thank you for your encouraging words.

He had clinic appointments for ENT was told he needs surgery which he didn’t go ahead with. He also had another dermatology appointment. During this period he had paid IHS fee as he was awaiting a decision for his in country application not sure if this would make a difference.

Thank you both for your replies. I appreciate it.

Will wait and see what happens. Have applied and used the priority service. I know the decision isn't straight forward and most likely won't be made in the given timescale, but at least i can hope to have a decision before the 3 months processing time. God willing.

Any reply Sister regarding the status of your application?

Hi

No I haven’t received a reply even though we applied for priority service.

Received an email last week to say they hadn’t received sponsors documents, which I had already submitted. So I went and submitted them again. No sure how long it will take now.
Because you got an email from them regarding sponsor's documents, more likely your case is under consideration and you will hear some good news about it very soon.

Aw Fififadi, I’m so so sorry, I know how hard hitting a decision can be :(
Could you list the grounds if you don’t mind?
