Spouse visa Employment interview

Post by sg88 » Thu Jun 13, 2019 3:37 pm

Hi, I have just submitted a UK spouse visa application to sponsor my wife. My question is I have provided payslips, bank statements which show my salary paid into my account, my employment contract and also a employers reference letter. IF they call me and my employer for telephone interview is it just a telephone interview or can they go further and ask us for further proofs e.g. telephone/email communication between employer/employee, business phone bills, business emails etc.
My employer is due to travel abroad for a project in south east asia and wanted to know if they will request any additional documents so he can arrange this before he leaves.

Regards,
S

Usually only a call to confirm your employer details and your job/salary etc information, if there is a call.

But have there been cases where they do ask for additional paperwork, if so, what?
Or is it just a interview over the phone to clarify?
How long do these interviews normally last?
Do they notify you in advance or do they just randomly call? And is it the same for me and my wife, would it be a random call if they called?

They may call anytime from private number to clarify and/or cross check the employment information from sponsor and/or employer. Mostly employees working for small businesses or new businesses or businesses with little turnover are being called. Phone must always be on as they may not call/write back again and make the decision.

No one can tell that. And not everyone is being interviewed/contacted by them.

Spouse Visa sponsor/applicant interview

Post by sg88 » Sat Jun 15, 2019 5:59 pm

Hi, I was wondering if somebody can help answer a question. If UKVI call for phone sponsor and applicant for telephone interview, is this a phone call or video call interview?

This is why I am confused, I have read posts where they say the applicant and sponsor are requested to attend the nearest centre and a video call interview takes place in a room. Is this for applicant or sponsor or both?
And others do not clarify as they just say interview.

Thanks for the response, I understand couples extending Visa within UK FLR M are requested to attend interview together.
However I have applied for Appenxdix FM Partner application. First application to sponsor my wife in Pakistan, I understand IF called she will be requested to attend video interview in Lahore VFS office, but will I also have to attend interview in office in London or will my interview be a normal telephone conversation rather than video call?
Any responses would be much appreciated.

No one would be called to anywhere rather maybe called through video conference call. It will be down to you both where you have such video conference call facility which could be your home, office or anywhere.
