Re: Travelling to the U.K. whilst awaiting Spouse Visa decision?

IMHO both Amazonia and Iwolga are correct. It is perfectly legal to have two passports in UK, as many people who travel a lot need to get a visa put into their passport, while they are also needing to travel to another destination. But it is also true that when you fill up your old passport, and ap...

Re: Travelling to the U.K. whilst awaiting Spouse Visa decision?

As far as I know from personal experience, you can not have two passports valid from the same country. The issuance of a new passport after the previous one is lost or pages filled invalidates the first one. If you have valid visas on it, then it is usable based on the validity of the new passport ...

Re: Bank Account Statements and Evidence of Financial Responsibilities

Ok. Regarding your point 2 in previous post in my view if you have 6 months old savings in excess of £16000 then instead leaving them idle just use them in combination of salaried/none-salaried job for just in case. And if these funds have been derived through working then same payslips can act the...

Re: Document submission tls contact uk

You are on the right track, for applications from some TLS handled countries, if you did not do the self upload then the documents will be sent to their scanning hub in London. Hope the address to send it to was given to your wife during biometrics? Also, you may want to read up on specifications of...

Re: Applying for Spouse Visa from UAE

If your UAE salary meets the financial requirement AND you have a confirmed job offer in the UK to join within 3 months, then yes. HO do check if your job offer is genuine. Note that spouse visa can take 60 working days or more, often longer than 90 days. You can also use savings if you have £62,50...

Re: IHS when already paying tax

While this frustrates me as well, it's just the way it is and there's nothing that can be done about it. The cost is negligible if you end up needing NHS services for a major illness/injury. If it really bothers you, take advantage the free/cheap care and get any issues checked out and fixed (denta...

Re: Bank Account Statements and Evidence of Financial Responsibilities

The tax free personal allowance is irrelevant to a spouse visa requirements. So disregard it and just focus on the threshold of 18,600? Yes. The tax free personal allowance has nothing to do with HO. It is an HMRC allowance that every working person has. For a spouse visa, it is only the £18,600pa ...
