Re: Spouse Visa and Unpaid Leave re Financial Requirement

Hi Seagul,

I have an annual bonus that has ranged from £0 to £20k in the past 6 years, which is paid every January.

My past 6 months basic salary (without any bonus) has been over £16k.

Is B an option? Thoroughly confused now!

Thanks

Re: Spouse Visa and Unpaid Leave re Financial Requirement

Thanks geoeng. Would you interpret that as therefore a prorata of my previous 6 months, which would easily pass the threshold, or would it still fall foul of the 6xlowest paid month rule? How would I get round this 6xlowest month obstacle. Bloody frustrating that Unpaid Leave month or this would be ...

Re: Spouse Visa and Unpaid Leave re Financial Requirement

Thanks geoeng, confirms what seagul said earlier.

I’ll apply using non salaried, which part of my employment (my bonus) is made up of in any case.

Has anyone else used this method in my situation and got a positive outcome?

Re: Spouse Visa and Unpaid Leave re Financial Requirement

Thanks CR001, I’ve ready though this last night and couldn’t find anything on: Unpaid leave specifically (it mentions Unpaid Parental, Maternity and Sick leave but not unpaid holiday) Is there a section on Non Salaried employment qualifying criteria (I haven’t had a chance to check yet as not on my ...

Re: Spouse Visa and Unpaid Leave re Financial Requirement

Thanks geoeng. Is there any guidance anywhere as to what exactly non salaried employment has to consist of? Mine is part salary and part non guaranteed bonus so I guess would count and meet the criteria?

Re: Spouse Visa and Unpaid Leave re Financial Requirement

Thanks both. I’ve emailed UKVI and posted out that their guidance for Unpaid Parental or Sick Leave is clear, that you won’t be penalised. However nothing explicitly mentioned for Unpaid Absence/Leave as in my case. Seagul - have you known anyone succeed with the non salaried route? Can you give me ...
