I has no idea it could take up to 6 months. What a shock. Surely that would only be if its not straight forward? What are they like about ringing them up to check you haventbeen forgotten about? Will they tell the state of your application over the phone? You'd think more straight forward applicati...

Well, I did ask if someone had looked into my case. The answer was yes. When I tried to ask more, he said he's not a case worker and therefore he didn't know. What he could see is the information in the database and therefore he couldn't provide anything more. The rules are not designed by us and t...

Re: still waiting

Paulhino, Have you tried to contact the home office to see what's taking so long? When I phoned they said they don't have any information unless it's been 14 weeks and you are way past that by now. You will see in one of my earlier posts that I received a letter a month ago from the home office exp...

They are no fast rules about this. If you intend to go on holiday or short period visits between 1-8 weeks in the two year period, you should have no problems. If on the other hand you are making several of these visits within this period, you will probally have to apply for further leave to remain...

2 year spouse visa and leaving UK.

Does anyone know what the regulations (if there is one) about leaving the UK whilst holding a 2 year spouse visa. How long is one legally allowed to be away, especially when it comes to applying for the ILR?
