Re: Started new job instead of furlough- spouse visa

Re: FLR(M) Extension application query

Please list your shared financial responsibilities and how much you each pay each month I think you're probably overthinking it. If you're married the exact answer to this question isn't particularly relevant. One could take the view that if you're married, then all financial responsibilities are s...

Re: Spouse Visa Extension - Spouse unemployed/financial requirement/language test

For employment that commenced prior to the date of application but for which a payslip has not yet been received, absolutely. I'm sceptical that if the start date of a position is after the date of application that one would be considered employed at the date of application.

Thought so, so the answer is I do not need to fill in section 3.13? I will just leave that blank?
Going off the PDF form, if you answer "yes" to 3.12, you skip to 3.21 and leave the intervening questions blank.

Re: Closed Visa Offices - Cant access Online Application

At the top of each webpage it says "BETA: This is a trial service". Do any tech people know what this means? Is it that they are running a different program so not all areas are accessible?
