Passport stamps in Arabic.. Need translation?

Hi, My wife is applying for Naturalisation and as proof of "Proof of living in the UK" -covering the past 3 years- we're providing her expired and current passports. These have been stamped in the UK on each entry, however there's no exit stamps, only entry stamps in Egypt, which are in Arabic. - Do...

Re: Successful ILR Set(M)

Thanks dada,

We booked the appointment on the 31st of march.

When we started looking for appointments we were getting the same message. After a few days there were plenty of appointments, the closest was about 1 month from the day we were looking.

Re: Successful ILR Set(M)

Sure. I'm sure some of the documents I've submitted were not required, but to be on the safe side I might've over done the docs: . Passports of applicant and sponsor. . Biometric residency card. . Photographs, 2 for applicant 1 for sponsor. - Proof of finance: . Latest 6 Sponsor's bank statements, p...

Re: Set (m) pay rise within 6 month period

Thanks for pointing that paragraph out, I must've missed it. I've been with same employer for over 12 months and my salary before and after the pay rise exceeds the requirements. So, as I'll be relying on 4 months of old salary and 2 months of new salary, I think I'll apply under category A and use ...

Set (m) pay rise within 6 month period

Hello,

I'm the sponsor for my wife's set (m) application.

I was promoted with a new title and a pay rise last month, however my previous salary was enough to pass the financial requirements.

Do I apply under category B in this case? Or A with previous details.

Thanks,
Sherif

FLR(M) decision delayed 8 more weeks

Just received a letter today (7 weeks since applying) requesting additional documents, they state in the letter that the new expected decision date is on the 25th of January 2016, another whole 8 weeks!

Re: Can we send a photo copy of our marriage certi for exten

I contacted the ukba by phone, they advices to send the photocopy with a cover letter explaining the situation. As they already checked the certificate while applying for the current visa they might be ok with the copy.

However, we seem to have left our marriage certificate (in Arabic + the translation) in Egypt while on holiday there. We do have a photo copy at the moment of both (cert + translation) and can get the orig...

Thanks laith2012.. do you think the "Degree taught in English" is not a safe bet? I can't find much info about it on here, most applicants seem to go for the test.
