Spouse Visa Re-apply After Refusal - TB Cert Query

Post by Chaosen » Sun Jul 21, 2019 3:14 pm

Hello,

My wife recently had her spouse visa application refused on the grounds of not meeting the English Language requirement (our fault, as we assumed her standard Academic IELTS wold be accepted for the spouse visa process, frustrating but ultimately our own fault for misunderstanding).

She has since taken the A1 UKVI SELT test, and we are going to reapply next week after she picks up her test result.

In the meantime we are updating all the supporting paperwork (updated bank statements, payslips etc for financial requirement), but I wanted to double check as to whether she would need a new TB Certificate. Her current TB test expires 20th September, so it would still be valid for the application, but would have expired by the time she is accepted for a visa and able to travel.

Would we need for her to get a new TB test so that it is valid for the period when she enters the U.K. or is it ok to reapply knowing it will expire by September?

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated, as we really want to get the new application done as soon as possible and don’t really want to spend more money than we have to.

No need of getting new TB test since its not yet expired. TB test need to be valid at least at the time of application. Upon getting visa she can carry expired TB test for airport purposes.
The opinion expressed as above is neither a professional advice nor contesting/competing to other member's opinion/advice.

Ok, thanks for clarifying so quickly. We’ll get the reapplication done ASAP then and hopefully it will get approved. Will make sure to carry the certificate in hand luggage when she comes over. Thanks again!
