Appendix 2 VAF Finance Form Question

Post by Karmy100 » Thu May 14, 2020 11:15 am

Hi

just a silly question.

This is going to be my 3rd application. Last application got rejected because of my 2nd job, I didn't deposit the money in my bank account, therefore I didn't meet the requirement under Category A.

Anyways this time I am going to use 1 employment and meet the £18600 requirement etc. However My silly question is on the Appendix 2 VAF form, section 3.13, do I have to put my previous job ( 2nd job) details e.g when it started and when it ended and how much I earned?

Last time my lawyer filled both Section 3.12 and Section 3.13 as I was going to rely on them 2 employment.

I have been with my current employment for over 2 years now.

thanks.

If you're not relying on it to meet the financial requirement and since you have been with the employer you are using for longer than six months (Category A), you shouldn't have to list any other employment as that question appears to relate specifically to those using Category B.
I'm just a guy on the Internet who immigrated to the UK. My opinions are based on my experience and interpretation of the immigration rules and should not be considered legal or immigration advice; your mileage may vary.

Thought so, so the answer is I do not need to fill in section 3.13? I will just leave that blank?

Going off the PDF form, if you answer "yes" to 3.12, you skip to 3.21 and leave the intervening questions blank.

Thank you lol, told you it was a silly question. I was just worried because last time I wrote it so was thinking about whether I need to declare it on the 3.13 as I worked there within the last 12 months. But obviously I’m not going to rely on the income from that job.

The same methodology you will have to inculcate when filling the online application too by not giving any detail of an income which you aren't relying. Otherwise you will end up in being asked of various documents and making calculations.

Oh ok, so when filling out the online application form and appendix 2 form. Only include 1 employment salary and details as I will be using 6 months payslip etc from that employment?

Yes provided you have earned sufficiently from that employment where your monthly wages never been dropped below £1550 in any month during the last 6 months (if you earning fix wages) or you must have earned at least £9300 during the last 6 months (if you are earning variable). Furthermore, you will need the corresponding bank statements and the employer letter.

what additional forms are needed for spouse visa app?

Post by Karmy100 » Fri May 29, 2020 3:32 pm

Hi all

I'm preparing for the application with my solicitor. We are applying via gov.uk website now.

However in my previous application I had to fill in Appendix 2 (VAF4A - Finance Form) and Sponsor Undertaking form.

However my solicitor is saying we no longer need to fill them 2 forms in now. I'm looking at this link (
https://www.gov.uk/uk-family-visa/provide-information) &
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... 2-to-vaf8b

For Appendix 2 (VAF2) - This publication was withdrawn on 25 November 2019 , This guidance is obsolete and should no longer be used.

Therefore my question is, are we no longer needing to fill in VAF2 form and Sponsor undertaking form?

Would appreciate it if someone can help clarify, what other forms are needed.

Kind regards

The inline form contains the financial requirements part now.

Sponsorship undertaking form SU07 is NOT required for a spouse visa.
