her reason was to meet new freinds and practise her English skills and apprently the officer said she did not belive her. They also asked strange questions about me and took her passport without a recipt or any guidence about what to do next. Understandably we are both devistated even if there is st...

Fiancee Visa Interview

My Girlfreind who was applied for a Fiancee visa to come to UK had an interview today in relation to her application and now she seems to think it will be refused. It seems the person who interviewed her at Consoulate in China did not introduce herself, was horrible to her and left my Fiancee with n...

I've just came back from China and my fiancee has applied for the visa. We supplied plenty of documentation and the staff at the visa centre seemed to think we had more than enough evidence, however my fiancee now needs to go for an interview. In anyones opinion iss this likely to be a good or bad o...

My local Council dont do it, and Estate Agents dont seem to have a clue so I am going to have to do it myself. Can anyone advise on exactly what I need to do, is it just a case of measuring each living room, taking photograph of each living room or is there more information needed? I'm starting to p...

Can't help on the property enquiries - but on the bills front. Even if they are paid by direct debit - you must have an official letter from the companies and council stating your current account status with them. Every march everyone recieves a new council tax bill - even those paying by direct de...

Anon Mouse, are the VFS staff saying they will not accept the applicaiton without some kind of Certificate of No Impediment for you, or are they just "advising" her that she needs one? As long as it's the latter, I would say just get on with the application. A CNI isn't required for marriage in the...

I think that the VFS staff are mistaken, however, if you think that it is worth it to arrange the Certificate of No Impediment rather than the hassle of fighting the bureaucrats (which I could understand!) then go for it. As far as I know there is no other legal proof of your unmarried status - any...

I belive the maximum occupancy is 5 in a 3 bedroom house? It is not that simple. As mentioned before, excluding Spam, bathroom and toilet, whatever their size, how many rooms in the place exceed 50 sq ft? Evidence of contact? That looks OK. How to get evidence to her in China? Maybe someone from Ch...
