Dear All, This is just a quick question regarding the new family route immigration rules and how it might affect a delayed entry spouse visa. Last year my wife was granted a 2 year spouse visa, however we had to delay coming back to the UK due to an extension of my existing contract. I assume that s...

Spouse Visa - Delayed Entry

Hi All, Hopefully someone might be able to give me some advice on our following situation. Last year my wife successfully applied for a spouse visa as we intended to move back to the UK last summer as I had been offered a job in the UK. However my employer in Japan negotiated a better contract and w...

Dear Pennylessinindia. Thanks for your feedback, however I am still a little confused. I assume my wife lost ILR as she has been out of the country for more than 5 years. The situation was made more problematic as we went to the UK for a family visit a couple of years ago and she got a standard tour...

Dear Casa,

Thanks so much for the information, it is really appreciated. With our savings we may just have enough. I am toying with the idea of just flying over on my own, get myself setup then bring them over. However, it will be awful to be apart from them. Yes, my children are British Nationals.

Dear All, Thanks for all the advice you have given me so far. My wife took her language test and she will definitely meet the language requirements. I am now a little worried about adequate funds for my family and I. I worried that my wife will not get her visa and only my children and I will return...

This might help others in the same situation as me, now all I need to do is find out what "English at A1 level" really means in terms of test taking and where the "approved test providers" are. http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/newsarticles/2010/268071/15migrants-english-requirement http...

Hi All, Thanks again for all your responses. The waters now seem to have been muddied further with the bringing forward to September of the July 2011 measures to make immigration more difficult for immigrant partners. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk/10270797.stm I am not sure exactly what the July 201...

thanks again for the very prompt reply. I've had a look at the costs and you are right in that it is very pricey! Time for a discussion with the wife. We may well be going on holiday to the UK for a couple of weeks over the summer so she'll probably take the test then.

Thanks for the advice so far. I have completed a fair amount of research and I think she will go for option 2 and apply for ILE. Now the next step is how to do this. As we are based in Japan, I assume we will apply via the British Embassy in Tokyo. They outsource all their visa applications to an or...

thanks for the very quick reply! I guess it doesn't look good then... So your saying that she could still try and apply as returning resident, if this fails then we'll go the spouse visa route. I also noticed that is says this on the site: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/partnersandfamilies/partne...

Settlement: Returning Resident or Spouse Visa?

Hi All, I met my wife in the Uk about 10 years ago (I'm a British National) and we decided to get married (she's a Japanese National). So we did everything by the book: We flew to Japan and she applied for a fiance visa in Tokyo which she was successful in getting. We returned the UK and got married...
