Re: Kindly help.....Spouse visa financial requirement !

If you've enclosed with your supporting documents: Payslips demonstrating pay from 3rd September 2018 until 8th March 2019 and Bank Statements demonstrating pay from 3rd September 2018 until 8th March 2019 I don't think you'll have a problem. I think the ECO would gloss over the slight error made by...

I already sent the payslips and bank statements from September 2018 - March 2019
If you enclosed these within your supporting documents, I can't see what the problem is.

As I see it, with an application date of 8th March, you will need to demonstrate, at least: Payslips from 8th October 201...

Re: Kindly help.....Spouse visa financial requirement !

If I were you, I would seek the advice of an immigration expert immediately. As seagul says, there will be no discretion shown by UKVI. If you do not demonstrate the full six-month period as required, your application will be refused. An immigration expert might tell you that it would be better for ...

Re: Spouse Visa Application - Settlement - Moscow - Russia

Quick question: What is considered to be the date of application for a Spouse visa. In other words, when do we start counting the 60 working days (for a standard application): 1. Online application date? 2. Biometrics appointment - date the application form was signed and submitted? 3. Date of suppo...

We afraid there might be some error in our VAF4A form submitted.
If you haven't paid the IHS and Application Fee yet, you haven't yet submitted your application.

Don't worry... the best thing for you to do is to delete that particular application and then start again.

Re: extra payment on IHS fees - urgent help

IHS is £400 a year, so in theory should be £1100 for a 33-month visa . But, as well as charging in USD rather than GBP, UKVI round it up to the nearest six-month period. It is £1200 for a 33 month visa, not £1100. Indeed. Hence, my use of the words 'in theory'. The actual charge debited by my UK ba...

Re: extra payment on IHS fees - urgent help

The IHS payment summary require us to pay GBP2500 (USD3264) instead of GBP1.2k without inclusion of the visa fees. Yes, it seems as if you've paid double for IHS. The correct amount for one applicant should be USD 1632. IHS is £400 a year, so in theory should be £1100 for a 33-month visa. But, as w...

Re: extra payment on IHS fees - urgent help

USD3k++ for IHS charge. What was the exact figure you paid in USD for IHS? What was the exact figure you paid in USD for the application fee? Forget the figures given in GBP (£); they seem to be for information purposes only. UKVI use USD and apply their own exchange rate in order to determine a GB...

Re: Category D

If you have £62,500+ cash savings, held for six months (+), and can demonstrate how you accumulated it, stick with Category D only. What's the point of confusing things? You meet the financial requirement... simple. We relied on Category D only for both Spouse visa and FLR. It wasn't a problem. In f...

Re: Support Letter: Accomodation

It doesn't actually apply to me, seagul; my own accommodation situation won't require a property inspection report. It's more a case of arguing that any such report couldn't prove or disprove overcrowding. Ten people could be living in a two-bedroom property, but the 'surveyor' is told that only two...

There are other threads here relating to the same issue.

I find this new process a bit strange; I thought UKVI wanted to see certain original documents (marriage certificate, language test, etc). But scanned / paperless is obviously okay now.
