Re: Question for returning UK citizen and wife

UKVI advise you apply no more than 3 months before you and your wife plan on moving (in a situation where you move together). No harm in researching the requirements of the visa, evidence you will need (quite extensive in many cases) and how to apply at this stage though.

Surely a ukvi visa cannot be granted only because the company is not a year old?..
Course it can.

If you do not have all of the documentation they require, they will reject the visa. You'll have to wait until you meet the requirements.

My wife is currently out of work and my 2.5yr spouse visa is due for renewal. We have a 2yr old child together so I really do not want to get denied.
Do you meet the financial requirement? If you meet the earnings or savings requirement, simply use that!
