Re: Barclays online bank statements - accepted format

Hi,

I had the same problem. When I went to the branch I was told to download the Mobile banking app on phone and it had all the bank statements (as in normal paper format).

Hope this helps :)

Re: Spouse visa Application

Thanks AmazonianX.

Are there any numbers to contact UKVI regarding the application? I know it’s slight early to contact them.

I searched online, I just want to make sure I have the correct number.

Re: Spouse visa Application

Hi all,

I am aware that the application takes upto 12 weeks normally. Does the turn around time include Christmas holidays as most of the offices will be closed/ reduced service for nearly 1-2 weeks?

That makes sense. Thanks. I provided HR department's e-mail address as employer's email address.

Why not trying in sending an email ov...
