Re: Universal credit spouse visa will it effect the visa

Get DWP to write a letter and confirm that your wife is not getting paid UC and it's only yourself and I would also add the letter if you still have it which says she's not entitled to anything because of her immigration status :)

Re: Pakistan Red List

I don’t think it’s reasonable to write “I hear turkey will go on the red list” I don’t think it’s reasonable to write “everyone is going there” unless you have access to some database that monitors movements of Indian and Pakistanis with UK citizenship that travelled lately.

I’ve spoken to my solicitor and he told that my wife can still come over while Pakistan is in red list since she has a spouse visa.

Only matter will be finding available flights to UK.
But she'll need to quarantine in a hotel for 10 days, right?

Re: Do Universal Credit and Carer's Allowance count for the adequate maintenance income requirement?

Hi, I'm just wondering if payments from UC and Carer's Allowance count for the adequate maintenance income requirement. If so, does the sponsor have to have been in receipt of these for a certain amount of time, and are there any other considerations? Thanks Carers allowance counts but I don't thin...

Re: Pakistan Red List

Hi This is precisely my problem. My wife should receive her visa within 4 weeks and there is no way I will be paying an additional £1750 so she can be in a jail aka quarantine by herself in London. We will wait until it’s removed off the red list and seek an extension to the validity of the visa - ...

Thank you.

Re: Pakistan Red List

Yes she'll be able to, as she has been given residency status to live here.

My brother applied for his wife and awaiting decision on her visa, I take it they are still processing applications as normal? can anyone confirm please.

Thanks.

Re: Adequate Maintenance and Carer's Allowance

As long as your wife doesn't get public funds then you're fine.

If you are a UK citizen, you can still claim but only under your name.
