Re: Enter UK on tourist visa, AFTER spouse visa already granted (but before start date)?

Thanks for the reply guys. She has her passport in hand with the vignette(?) stating valid from 07/02/2020, so we assume she cannot arrive with the spouse visa before that date. Well aware of the airline situation and looking to use KLM/airFrance within the next 24 hours if possible. No Schengen vis...

Re: Enter UK on tourist visa, AFTER spouse visa already granted (but before start date)?

Sorry to double post, I can't see how to edit. Is cancelling of existing visas a universal practice when issuing a new one of different type?

Enter UK on tourist visa, AFTER spouse visa already granted (but before start date)?

Hi all, We recently were approved for our spouse visa, and had arranged travel from China for my wife in the middle of February (when the spouse visa is valid from). However with the CoronaVirus outbreak we are concerned about the potential for airport closure and missing the booked flight or even t...

Spouse visa approved! Comment on false property inspection report advice.
