Partner offered job abroad near end of 5 year spouse visa

Post by ignatius lord » Mon Nov 13, 2017 3:28 pm

Hi all, My partner will be applying for SET M in january next year (I am the uk based sponser). In january this will be the 5th year so ready to apply for the SET M. We meet the requirements of finance etc with my income alone so thats not a problem. However, my partner (the applicant) has been offered a job for a 10 month contract to start in december this year! ( I know its really bad timing, if they could let her start in say febuary after the application that would be fine, but they insist if she wants it she has to start this december. She really wants to take it but we were wondering, would this cause any problems with the SET M application in january 2018?

Shes currently here on a spouse visa nearing end of 5 year period. The company offering her this position is a U.K. based company (a university), however she will be working for them in china. SO although shes working for a U.K. company she wont be in the U.K. while doing it...

I would be hoping to stay in the U.K. for these 10 months (as uk sponsor) and obviously visit on holiday etc, but obviously this would mean I wouldnt be living with her for the next 10 months.

Would this be allowed or would it cause problems?

I heard somewhere that its ok because up until this point we have been living together for 2.5 years plus (plenty of correspondance to proove this).

It would seem a shame to turn the contract down

Have you considered that your wife will have to be present in the UK to submit her SET(M) application? If this is submitted by post she will be without her passport during the processing period, which could take up to 3 months. :idea:

Wrong address on payslips for SET visa

Post by ignatius lord » Tue Nov 14, 2017 7:41 pm

Hi guys, 2 questions

1) Im using the 12 month of employment router to get a SET M for my partner. My crrently employer is ok but My last employer has some problems.

I left my last job on bad terms and I don't think they will bother to post a letter stating i worked there, for how long etc etc. I will ask of course, but what if they dont?

Also I still have all my payslips from the last employer BUT. they have the wrong address on them! I told them this while working there but they never changed it. The address on the pay slip shows at number 6 but I live at number 4. Will this be a problem? They show the same street etc so its obvious we were living together but doesn't show the same house number. very annoying

Hi guys,

Sorry to be a pain but I just want to check something. According to my calculations over the last 12 months ive earned 24338 pounds. Would anyone be able to check ive got this right? Ive had 2 jobs over the last 12 months one salaried and one contract). Ive just added the contact jobs monthly incomes up is that right?


Total over last 12 months = 15,150 from salaried employment + 9188 from contract employment = 24,338 over the last 12 months.

july (384 307 348 307) - total: 1346
june (384 384 384) - total: 1152


Salaried employment (total from contract over these months 15,150)
may - 3485

march - 2333
feb- 2333
january -26th 2333

Re: Incomes requirements calculation

Post by ignatius lord » Wed Nov 15, 2017 7:42 pm

Also, althought by my calculations I earn over the amount needed over 12 months (over 22500, my requirment as I have 1 child) my current income at present is only 20,000 (less than my last job)

so if over 12 months I made over the requirement but at present only make 20,000 will this not be allowed? should get I get a part time / weekend job elsewhere for the last month to build it up a bit?

Income threshold if have british child?

Post by ignatius lord » Wed Nov 15, 2017 8:50 pm

Hi, Ive just noticed something, I thought that if you are applying and you have 1 child your income needs to be at least 22,400 per year. I have 1 child, however she was born here and is british. SO does this mean we would only need to meet the 18,600 income? As although we have 1 child, the child is already british

£18,600. Your British child isn't included in the calculation.

You don't need a letter as such from your previous employer. The employment letter must be from your current employer. You can simply state the error in the address.

Re: Income threshold if have british child?

hey on the set app form it says:

For any children (even if british) i have to show:

-Evidence of where the child lives
and
-Evidence of being involved in her upringing

Well our baby is only 4 months old so what evidence can I really show to prove im involved in her upbringing? I have pictures of us together but obviously we dont do much else as shes only 4 months old lol!

Also it says we must provide the following documents for our child:

-Birth certificate (got his)
-Travel documents/ passport to show citzen status. (Currently the baby only has a travel document for travel to china, would this cause confusion of baby citizen status?) can this be used? she went to china with mum for a few weeks to see her family hence why we got the travel doc.

Obviously shes british as she was born here and has a birth certificate. We havnt got her a british passport yet and dont think we could get one in time, would really need to?
