Re: Passport Photos for new service

It looks good to me… I would just recommend providing more than less.. so if there are any other correspondence throw in a couple more. I have a slightly more complicated case where we moved houses three times in the last 2.5 years. Only because we were waiting for our house to finish building... i’...

Re: Passport Photos for new service

Re: Passport Photos for new service

The new online form gives a checklist at the end. I meant, it can make some errors as the new online form is very new. As I said, similarly the check list for Tier 1 also demands for two documents which are not required by the guidance but we have to tick the boxes to proceed. But we have to follow...

Re: Passport Photos for new service

The system is pretty new and not properly updated yet. I am Tier 1 and the online form asks for evidence for 2 things which is NOT required by the guidance. So I would suggest follow the guidance only. If the guidance says its not required dont worry about checking the boxes in the online form. Als...

Re: Passport Photos for new service

The last item on my wife's document checklist states: "Evidence of monthly housing costs for the accommodation in the UK where you live or will live" I plan to provide latest utility bills (energy, water, broadband) as well as history of mortgage payments. I'm going to use Council Tax bill (jointly...

Re: Passport Photos for new service

Hi, Quick question - do we need to provide passport photos if using the new online service instead of old postal application? We will be going to the VISA service point this week. Thanks, SoS Hi spouseofsettler, I’m not 100% sure but I don’t think you need to provide passport photos anymore. Hopefu...

Re: New Appointment Centre UKVCAS

I really don’t know! Or maybe do as cemj did? I doubt it really matters especially in these early days when some clarity is needed. We don’t have to apply yet (SET(M) like you), so hopefully others will advise.I would like to think that, once all the necessary documents are uploaded, that they woul...

Thanks allyf! I hope someone who has completed the process will come back to advise on the issue of 'proof of application' but they all seem to have deserted us! When my husband logged in to upload his documents, under 'Proof of application' it asked for his passport and then the signed consent/dec...

Re: Clarifying SET(M) Visa Doubt through FLR(M) Visa

Hi Vinny or CR001, I am applying for ILR under set M and under mandatory documents to scan it advises “proof of application”. Does anyone know what proof they require? Would I need to print off entire application form (even though it is submitted online) or would proof of payment be what they need? ...
