Re: IHS when already paying tax

While this frustrates me as well, it's just the way it is and there's nothing that can be done about it. The cost is negligible if you end up needing NHS services for a major illness/injury. If it really bothers you, take advantage the free/cheap care and get any issues checked out and fixed (dental...

Is this correct or something to worry about?
The £18,600 requirement is based on gross income (i.e. the amount earned before income tax and NI are deducted).

Re: Spousal visa requirements - Clarifications

I’d most likely download the bank statements if they’re suitable but I’m very meticulous and organised. I’d rather sign something off twice than make the smallest mistake. You could also consider requesting to have paper bank statements mailed to you for the next few months if you have concerns abo...

You won't be asked for the decision letter in future applications, the BRP is all that is needed to prove a right to live/work/enter the UK.

Re: Uk spouse visa - question

Do you think it would be good if the employer will confirm in his letter that he allied my husband to work remotely for a year and after that he expected to back to the uk? Might be worth including just so the situation is clear, but I wouldn't worry too much about this situation as it likely would...

Re: Need help with cohabitation example.

She entered January 17 2017, so does January counts as the 1st month?. So May 17 2020 is the earliest we can apply? 30 months from 17 January 2017 would be 17 July 2019, so you would be a bit late in applying in this case. Assuming you meant 17 January 2018, 30 months from that would be 17 July 202...

Re: Tier 2 to Spouse visa minimum income threshold

Can we use this as evidence for the minimum income threshold? Unfortunately it's not that simple. To use income from employment you either need: A) current employment held for at least 6 months earning over £18,600/year; OR B) total income in last 12 months of at least £18,600 AND current employmen...
