Re: Very worried for My brother who is due to bring his tai wife to uk

As mentioned on the other forum you posted on, his Thai wife would need to pass the English exam A1 and a medical and TB X-ray, to get here in the first place, along with application fees and IHS (NHS) surcharge. Then after 2.5 years in the UK she would have to apply for FLR(M), for a further 2.5 ye...

Re: **** COVID19 Biometrics appointments and UKVCAS ***** (Discuss here ONLY)

Well, after all the trouble we went to, to find and book a biometric appointment, which was in Southampton, far from where we live, they have now cancelled it, because they aren't opening on Saturday 2nd January. Couldn't they have decided that before releasing the appointment date into the system!...

Any thoughts on my above post/question, anyone, please? I am concerned that the appointment we have booked in early January might get cancelled as it is in a high risk area and far from where we live. The way the system is, it seems that because we have an appointment booked already, we are unable t...

Re: Naturalisation - Appointment booking

Once you have booked a biometric appointment, am I right in thinking that the UKVCAS (Sopra Steria) system won't then allow you to look round for a better or alternative appointment? We couldn't get an appointment at the centre nearer to where we live (1.5hrs away), which is a library and only open ...

Re: Citizenship/Naturalisation Questions

I think I am erring towards answering both as "no", on the basis that she is no longer a child/dependant. But propose to explain in the section for any additional information.

No
Wouldn't we have said "Yes" in answer to the first question (as she was admitted as a dependent and in effect was granted ILR as an adult/dependent), and then "No" to the later one, as she isn't a child for the purpose of the last question.

Re: FLR M refused - do I face deportation?

The way I see it, it has nothing to do with the situation regarding your family members. It's a case of (if I understood the situation correctly) you came to the UK on a visa visit, knowing that it is a condition of that visit visa that you leave at the end of the permitted time. Period. If you over...
