Re: Maintinance Funds - WHICH 3 months?

Did you ask your bank to stamp & sign the statements? or any additional letter? Hi there, I got my tier 1 last month. This might help you understand the requirement : I had a back statement for 19th March to 19th June and applied on 21st June. Its always safer to apply with the bank statement issued...

Re: Accommodation Proof - Dependent

If your wife will be coming to UK after 3-4 months, wouldn't you have found your own place by then? (since you will be moving out in 2 months). Whynot apply after 2 months then? It appears to be the safest and correct bet. But, seems you are inclined to file the application now with hotel booking as...

Re: Receipt for Tier 1 Fee

I was i a similar situation: The company wanted the invoice to be sent directly to them - which isn't possible. How have you paid? If Credit card - Then use the statement as a proof of payment & claim the fees. Debit card / check- Same as above. Don't think HO will send a receipt. Hi, My company acc...

Re: Maintinance Funds - WHICH 3 months?

1) Have you extended your visa & got your Tier 1 by providing signed & stamped bank maintenance statements? 2) Have you come across posts here where the visa was rejected because they haven't provided stamped maintenance statements?

Re: Maintinance Funds - WHICH 3 months?

It is satisfactory to show 1st April to 30th June, if you are applying on 20th July. This satisfies all three rquirements. To address any un-foreseen troubles, can you arrange until mid-July? I'm not familiar with ING statements but I had provided my bank's statement without any stamping. They are l...

Re: Got HSMP -> Tier1 Extension

From what you are saying, it implies that - even though we donot follow rules, our application should be processed first. So, Mind your own business. This is like a Gunda talking. There i...

Very good, let's encourage queue jumping & many will follow. Now-a-days, getting a Crodon PEO appointment has become much tougher than getting a H1B visa or a multi-millin lotto rollover.

Re: What Does 15 Months Before The Application Exact Means?

It is any consecutive 12 month of the previous 15 month. So I guess, May 2008 will be the 15th Month if you apply in Aug 09. (Aug 08 to June 09 = 1 yr = 12 months; July 08 = 13; Jun 08 = 14 ; May 08 = 15th month) At which date in May 08 was the amount credited in your account? Do you qualify if don'...

My guess is that you wouldn't want to get the funds out of FD itself and see if you can try managing with the amount you are carrying.

If that's the case - good luck. You will not probably.

There's a reason why HO states X amount of funds as maintenance.
