Re: Long Residence (10 years) SET (LR) applications

This is the thread but members have, as usual, taken it completely off topic. Postal can take a few months, six months and sometimes much longer. I think its because this topic does not say 'TIMELINES ONLY' in the header, it just says 'Long Residence (10 years) SET (LR) applications' :roll: would b...

Re: Long Residence (10 years) SET (LR) applications

Yep, it is indeed in the SET LR checklist , at the end of the online application. (one of the pdf files you download)

May be they want to make it easy for themselves when the spouse/dependant switches to FLR-M at some point ?

Re: Applying for UK visit visa outside of home country , possible ?

Your safest bet would definitely be to go back to your home country and apply from there. Although what you are saying makes sense but for some reason “legally present” really means eg on a work visa or permanent resident visa (something longer term than a visit visa) Thanks for your input. Kind of...

Re: Applying for UK visit visa outside of home country , possible ?

To apply for a visa from a country which is not your residence country, you have to have the right to live there, i.e. NOT be a visitor in the country! Hi. just to clarify, It's for a short term UK visit visa , and as per this link https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/where-to-apply-ecb05/ecb...

Re: Applying for UK visit visa outside of home country , possible ?

Hi

Thanks for your reply. Sorry I'm not sure I understand. Do you mean to say only 'resident' visa holders can apply from the application country ?

Why can't someone who is in a different country on tourist visa, make application for a UK visit visa in that country as a visitor?

Yes you can submit online with all your dependants added in one application. i.e you can add your child to your wife's application.

Re: Long end date on cos

Whether or not the visa is issued for upto 6yrs or rejected, it seems they will definitely ask for the increased visa fee if your end date is simply over 3yrs in the COS. Unless its clearly mentioned in the sponsor note. This is just my understanding after reading a few previous posts on here.
