Standard visitor visa to Spouse visa

Post by Danny007 » Fri May 25, 2018 7:58 pm

Does any one have any information if it is possible to change the standard visitor visa to another category within the UK. If the children are British.

Flrm application is totally impossible but FLRfp maybe submitted with extremely lower chances of success with high chances of delays. Best to return back home and obey the visitor visa condition to get straight the normal spouse visa.
The opinion expressed as above is neither a professional advice nor contesting/competing to other member's opinion/advice.

Flr fp with low chances and up to a year or more for a response unles you’ve got very compelling circumstances/ insurmountable obstacles that prevent your spouse from returning to her country and apply from there and still you are facing up to a year for a response.

Who are you asking for regarding changing from visitor visa??

In your previous post in April, you were asking about ILR based on 6 years DLR??
