Re: Someone help me ik confused

^^ That. It is assumed that any overtime you earned over 6 months could continue to be earned over an entire year regardless of whether you actually end up earning it. You will need to show that you meet the financial requirement again when you have to apply for an extension to the spouse visa, so i...

Re: Someone help me ik confused

Does overtime count when sponsering a spouse? Or is it only based on contracted hours? Also if I started doing 40+hrs from today would I need to wait 6 months and show 6 months worth of payslips or 12months? You can include overtime as "an annualised 6-month average for the overtime which will be a...

Re: UK expat returning with Canadian wife scenario

If you are in a job earning the equivalent of £18,600/year now, and can get a job offer earning at least £18,600 in the UK, this could also be used to meet the financial requirement. The many ways of meeting the financial requirement are detailed in the guidance document linked below. While what you...

Re: UK expat returning with Canadian wife scenario

Would UK Immigration have a problem with this plan? I don't think there's a guaranteed answer to that question. It's not really the intent of the visitor visa to be used in this manner and you might have issues with some of the eligibility requirements (you’ll leave the UK at the end of your visit,...

Re: Advice - Self Upload vs Upload Services

I don't think it took me more than a couple hours at most scanning everything one page at a time on my little home printer, combining those into large files and then uploading everything onto the UKVCAS website. Most of the work goes into organising the proper documents, which you will have to do re...

Re: Spouse Visa

It's a fairly standard response they send. Just means they are still working on processing your application and it will take a bit longer to get a decision.

Re: FLR (M) Application - Council Tax

Many thanks Zerubbabel. 1. Does that mean if I provide other documents as proof of living together (utility bills, DVLA letter etc), we are not required to submit a council tax bill? 2. Are online bills accepted? Online mobile bills, credit card statements and so on? 1. Yes. I know when I applied, ...

Re: Self-Employed Allowances (financial requirements)

This isn't the most common category used for applying for a spouse visa, so you might find the number of people knowledgeable about the specifics of this category to be quite small. For trying to interpret something that you think may not be explicit in the guidance, you may be best speaking to an a...

Re: Uk spouse visa expired vignette

If you've done what the UK government guidance has suggested already, which it sounds like you have, there's not much more you can do I wouldn't imagine other than be patient knowing they will eventually get to you. I understand waiting is tough but with the whole process just starting to get going ...

Re: Fiancee visa extension evidence of co-habitation - Requirements on online application form

First, it's best to keep all posts related to your situation in one thread rather than starting a new one each time. Second, seagul has already answered this question and that answer remains applicable now. The application form is unfortunately the same for all FLR(M) applications and the document r...

I'm not sure if it would help much in your situation with regards to accessibility, but you could consider meeting in a country that can be reached by a means of transport other than by plane.

Re: Spouse Visa Extension with Cash Savings

For the extension - Cash savings would be around £38,000 and she earns about £12,500/anum. So that should be enough. (£38,000 - £16,000) / 2.5 = $8,800 £8,800 + £12,500 = £21,300 The amount of cash savings that can be applied annually plus the annual income would exceed the financial requirement (a...
