Re: Indefinite Leave to Remain - Set (M) form

An "item" is just a piece of correspondence. So each separate bank statement received would be an item, each separate bill received would be an item. They have to be from at least 3 different sources, which it looks like you have. The dates of the items should be spread roughly evenly over the previ...

Re: Returning to the UK after 20 year Absence (UK Spouse VIsa)

Is the company registered in the UK? Would you be paying tax on your income in the UK? If not, you may not be considered to be employed in the UK, which would be a requirement if you were using employment income to meet the financial requirement.

Re: English Requirements

Just a follow up question, I’m working as a nursing practitioner at the Care Home do I have to pay for IHS fee or I’m exempted from paying it? The current government guidance at the website below would appear to suggest that the exemption from the IHS fee would only apply to those on Tier 2 General...

Also Is there anyway of previewing your docs once uploaded? I can see the PDF name but no option to view the actual document?

Re: Expired biometric card

Re: Experience of electronic payslips?

As you have noted, the requirement is not a paper payslip, only a formal payslip issued by the employer showing the employer's name. I ...

If you want to get married in the UK and be able to stay together after the marriage without your partner having to subsequently leave the UK and apply for a spouse visa from abroad, yes, costs more for that privilege.

If it's a complaint about their service, you could try the contact details on the web page linked below. Contacting your MP for assistance might also be worthwhile as they likely have more direct contacts available within the Home Office. https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-visas-and-immi...

Check the appointment confirmation email you will receive from them.

That said, they didn't actually look at any of them or do anything wi...

Re: SPOUSE VISA EXTENSION AT TWO ADDRESSES

The intent of the requirement to provide evidence of correspondence is to prove that you lived together at the same address. You would be able to use evidence from more than one address if that is where you were living together at the time; however, you may have an issue if you are providing documen...
