Re: Cyprus Holiday - Visa required?

Thank you CR001

Re: Cyprus Holiday - Visa required?

Thank you for the reply Simon. Im not to sure, they haven't received the BRP as yet, as they only recently arrived in the UK. (Stranded in their home country due to Corona). So, when we do eventually receive the card, if it don't state "Family Member of a Union Citizen" on the card, we will have to ...

Re: Spouse Visa Waiting Time - 8 months?

I will email him tomorrow and ask. There isn’t any harm or no loss to enquire. Failing that, I suppose I will just have to wait. In December, it will be 12 months since the original decision was overturned. 24 months since my partner left the UK :( Again, thanks for you’re input, it’s much appreciated

Re: Spouse Visa Waiting Time - 8 months?

I have explored all possible angles, my solicitor, VFS, UKVI, even the British Embassy in Chennai and Sri Lanka.

I was just hoping that there was a contact number or email for VFS Chennai but there doesn’t seem to be. All contact links direct you to the UKVI.

Thanks for you’re input

Re: Spouse Visa Waiting Time - 8 months?

Thank you for the reply, but I hope that this isn't the case. I was guessing that they have a huge back log to get through, but its been 8 months.

UKVI are no help, calls costing in the region of £20, only to be told they will escalate, followed by a email asking us to wait patiently

Re: Cyprus visit visa (Processed in 3 days)

Hi, i just picked up on your post.

You said you submitted 'Confirmed itinerary'. Did you have to do that? I read online, if you are applying as a family member, you do not need to submit the travel itinerary.

Thanks

Re: Schengen holiday with UK Citizen

Sorry yet again, I forgot to add;

Does my partner need to have lived in the UK 3 months, before applying for a Schengen visa?

Thanks again

Re: Schengen holiday with UK Citizen

Apologies

4. As my partner isn’t a British Citizen, do they need different type of travel insurance? Because every tine I have applied for travel insurance, it always asks if I’m a UK citizen.

Thanks again
