Re: EU family member travelling from the UK to EU

Hello

Schengen visa sadly :(

The EU Settled Status doesn't offer visa free travel to EU countries. That freedom has ended.

Re: Requirement for Comprehensive Sick Insurance

If you didn't use the NHS during your time in the UK, you can mention it as a kind of mitigating factor. At the moment, you have to play with the cards you have in hand.

Good luck!

Re: Fiancee visa but have been arrested before.

Just being genuinely curious. Can someone request for a police record (including arrest or not) to be deleted in the UK? Is such a thing possible? Under certain circumstances, especially when the person was juvenile, there are options to get that deleted. It won't be part of any record and nobody w...

If she puts money on her account to makes it look good, she will be declined on that basis. Many people I know, including within my own family, got a refusal because they tried to make their account looks better by adding money to it before applying. If she does that, I can guarantee a visa refusal ...

Hey

Your sponsor is EEA so it's straightforward most of the time. For non-EEA, it will take a few weeks/months to get the letter.

Re: Your Visa Application: VAF xxxxxx - Additional Documents Required (what should I write in subject line)

Just respond and don't change the subject line. Just hit "reply", attach the documents they request and write a couple of lines with that. But never change the subject as it contains a case number that automatically assign it to your case.

Re: CSI - when is it needed

Hello

You explain only if they ask you about it and your mileage varies. They can accept your explanation but they can as well reject it.

You need to show that you didn't have any immigration rules breach during the last 10 years. Sometimes they exercise discretion, sometimes not.

Hello Yes and no. If you are absent for less than 6 months then you come back, it's fine. But if you are frequently absent for less than 6 months, you may end up breaking other absence criteria and you won't qualify for Settled Status in 5 years. https://www.freemovement.org.uk/lengthy-absences-from...

Hello

You can use this official website to asses the situation:

She has 12 months with the US driving license.

But you will struggle to find an insurance on a foreign license. It's nearly impossible.

Re: H1B visa on Indian Passport to UK passport

Hello

It's not possible to make an application with a passport then get the visa transferred to another citizenship passport.

I understand you would have to surrender the Indian passport. That's problematic if the visa is attached to it.
