Re: Self uploading documents through VFS Global

Thanks for responding Fififadi. That sounds awful. I uploaded quite a few documents yesterday and was hopeful it'd be ok but the site is playing up even more today - I removed some docs too so I can put in a different folder so that hasn't helped. I just hate the thought of having to print all these...

Re: Posted documents for spouse visa --- need help

From other posts I've read, people waited for the VAC to contact them. But if you have a way of contacting the VAC, then you should just in case they don't call you.

I hope it's good news for you :)

Re: Self uploading documents through VFS Global

Has anyone had success after self-uploading supporting documents for the entry clearance spouse visa? Can you share what categories you used please?

Unfortunately, we have to complete uploading before sis-in-law has biometrics done - hopefully it'll be this Thursday.

Self uploading documents through VFS Global

Hi all This is for the initial spouse visa, applying from Bangladesh. The application was submitted on 17/08/19. We're in the process of uploading the supporting documents now before fixing the biometrics appointment but the folders available are a little confusing. 1. There's a folder called 'Spons...

Re: How closely are bank statements checked?

Re: How closely are bank statements checked?

Of course i meant his transactions! I wrote the post in first person and then amended it - I guess I missed one or two out as I'm typing in a rush (I've kind of become my brother in this process lol). Sorry for the confusion.

Re: How closely are bank statements checked?

Hi, I've hit a hurdle with getting the bank statements from NatWest. We requested 01Jan-31Jul statements from Natwest on 01/08/19 but as yet they haven't arrived in the post. We chased again on the 10th and still nothing. Bro just logged into his online account and can see they generated a combined ...

Hi I don't know if I'm fretting too much now as we're almost ready to submit the application. My brother who is sponsoring his wife's spouse visa has good income so financial requirment is met. However, late last year we had a niece (who had come over to the UK earlier in the year) who unfortunately...

Re: Online application now asking for 12 months of payslips

Thanks! Kimn - I'm sure it won't be a problem for your application as you answered according to how the question was asked. BTW, did you provide a housing report to confirm you had adequate accommodation? Sponsor lives with parents and was going to provide a no objection letter from father (property...

Re: Correct address to send spouse visa application

So this is way over 60 days for you! They really should have been in touch by now. If they accept online applications you'd think they'd be able to provide the decision online too.
