Re: Spouse Visa (self submitting)

Hi, Praying that you guys get a good news soon! I read on your post on the timeline thread that you were told that the case was not straightforward. Could you tell me what issues they had in particular? Did they ask you specifically regarding these concerns on the call or was it more general questi...

No decision 90 days

Biometrics were on 23rd Jan. Today marks 90 WD or 17 weeks. I have emailed and called them, escalated the case, with generic responses and apologies. Any advice on what to do? Do I carry on waiting or is there anything I could possibly do to make them respond. My case is not complex at all. I have n...

Re: Pakistan to Uk-travel route options after turkey in the red list

That's what I would've assumed too. But if you see http://www.gibraltarborder.gi/visa here it says though Pakistani nationals usually require visas for entry there are certain exemptions. This is one of the three exemptions mentioned: Persons holding EU issued family permits, UK Residence Permits is...

Re: Spouse Visa (self submitting)

I emailed them a week ago and they usually respond within 2 days. But it's been over 7 days and I didn't get a reply. They charge around £2.75 for an email and then they just ignore it! Is there no way to complain about this horrendous service?! Anyway, having given them ample time I finally called ...

Re: Pakistan to Uk-travel route options after turkey in the red list

I'm also thinking about this. Portugal, Gibraltar, Iceland and the Faroe Islands are the only European countries on the green list. But I imagine getting a visit visa for Pakistani nationals will be difficult. Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory, so since British nationals are allowed to visit...

Should I email UKVI?

I received a call from the Home Office on the 20th April, for an interview, this was 62 working days. Now it's been 67 working days and I'm tempted to email them.

Is there any point in doing so or should I just continue waiting?

Calls from Home Office

Hi a question for anyone who has applied for a Spouse Visa from Pakistan recently.

Those who were contacted by the Home Office could you share what questions they asked you. I know its regarding employment but more detail would be appreciated thanks.

Re: Career path for spouse

Thanks for replying. I didn't think it had to be immigration related because this is the employment board. We are still at the stage of exploring career options. Trying to avoid a low-paying 9-5 job and instead work on building up a small business. It all depends on how much time training will take....

Career path for spouse

Once my husband's visa is (hopefully) approved we are thinking about what work is best for him in the UK. Long term our aim is for him to be his own boss whether that's freelance or running a small business. We are looking at skill based work like automotive mechanic, electrician or photography/vide...

Oh right! I was so worried that maybe the staff overlooked it. Maybe it's for those who submit the documents at the centre. I also uploaded all docs online.

Have you heard back from them since?

Re: Spouse Visa (self submitting)

I just found out from my husband that the VFS staff did not take the Document Checklist at the appointment. They returned it to him without asking him to sign or signing it themselves. Aren't they supposed to keep it?
