Re: Naturalisation Route

Thanks Char and for the detailed info. I was aware of the 270 days for the preceding 3 years, not the 90 days preceding, still doing research so we will collect all info before actually applying. I'm assuming her passport stamps will prove this, there shouldn't be a requirement for further evidence?...

Naturalisation Route

Hi, I am finally applying for Naturalisation for my wife, it’s taken me 10 years to convince her to change from an Indian to a British passport. We were married in India on 2008, She came over to the UK in 2009 via a Spouse visa, and applied for ILR successfully 2 years later. Her Indian passport ex...

Re: New Indian Passport - BRP NTL Transfer from ILR

She is currently working, so she needs the BRP and can't rely on her ILR. Can you confirm is correct or what other options we have please? If an employer had checked the valid documents from List A, then there's no requirement to recheck. Thanks Vinny always a voice of wisdom, once our youngest dau...

If she holds a BRP card already, there is no need to apply for another one if she renews her passport.
Thanks for the reply CR001, she does not currently hold a BRP, all she has is her ILR in current passport which expires early next year.

New Indian Passport - BRP NTL Transfer from ILR

Hi all, Back for some help, my wife has been in the UK since September 2009, she came from India on a 2 year spousal visa, and then received ILR in 2011. Her Indian passport is expiring in soon, I'm wondering what her options are. She doesn't want a British passport, after reading the forum I believ...

Re: My mum visit visa was refused

As for the strong tie back home, I got my siblings back home, but they are adult no much questions about them in the application, as they only asked if anyone will follow in the trip to UK and she said No. I think you should have provided proof of these ties, that is what they are looking for. Woul...

Re: UK visitor visa - advise needed

Hi I believe that is a good start, maybe provide a family tree or family photos as well of extended family. Are they active members of any groups? i.e my father in law was the secretary at the local temple, and he got a letter from them. Most Visit Visa rejections have been on lack of ties to home c...

Re: Maintenance funds for visitor visa to parents

Research other posts by searching there are loads of people asking the same questions as you are. You need to show that your mother and brother also have ties to there home country, not just your father. Can you prove that your brother is getting a job?

Re: UK Visitor visa rejected without any reason,what a stupi

@Prem, do you really reckon a photograph can prove this, I have a doubt about it. How would you justify, persons in the picture are real people, you cannot send them to the HC office to prove. Even why will they believe, they are related to you. I can have as many people as I want and as many pictu...

I see exactly where you’re coming from, but providing Family Tree\Family Photos to me just added to the proof to show a truly genuine application, I can only sympathise with your situation. MIL, FIL I expected to get, but Sister in Law I had no hope for as she was 21, finished her degree and just do...

Re: Visitor visa for my father - what are the chances?

There is no minimum/maximum limit to be eligible, you just have to convince\prove to the ECO that you meet the criteria and are genuine. Will you be financing the trip or your father? As I sponspored my in laws completely.

I have seen people say FDs are not taken into account, becasue they are not tangible. But when my in laws applied they supplied FD proof as well as normal bank statments and it was fine for us.
