Re: Visa curtailment

Re: Confused with consent form for spouse visa

When I did it I sent Part 2 signed and sent Part 3 blank or wrote "Not Applicable" across it and I had no issues. I think they just want to confirm they aren't missing something they should have and having Part 3 included, even if blank, helps demonstrate that.

Re: Unmarried partner visa, time apart Hong Kong

They wouldn't grant her a youth mobility scheme visa on the basis of her living with a long term partner, they would grant it on the basis of meeting the requirements for that specific visa (the relationship doesn't factor into the requirements for this visa). This is the same route I took to get in...

Re: Cash saving route

Seagul may have a reference otherwise, but I don't think it falls under the category of "necessary" though it would be a good thing to do for a number of reasons, particularly for proving you have adequate accommodation under your ownership. Honestly, it looks a bit confusing if you say you're livin...

Start here: https://www.gov.uk/family-permit

It will depend on whether or not you've already applied for status under the EU settlement scheme. Note there is a different forum here for EEA permits.

Re: Processing Time of FLR(M)

From the gov.uk website for family visas: "If you apply in the UK a decision will usually be made within 8 weeks of your application date if you use the standard service". If you look at the FLR(M) timeline thread you'll note they've pretty much been meeting the 8 week timeline from application date...

Re: Unmarried partner visa, time apart Hong Kong

You may have some difficulty with this application for the reasons you have already identified in terms of potentially not meeting the requirements. First of all, you have not lived together for a consecutive 2 year period. Second, the period of time apart is rather substantial. While details of wha...

Re: Cash saving route

I'd consider that a large gift, yes. Per the guidance you do not have to provide proof of the source of the savings, only a declaration stating the source. I can't advise what to include beyond what the guidance says, you have to decide what you think is necessary to include to satisfy the requireme...

Re: Spouse visa FLR Submission

I'm assuming you have applied for the extension online within the UK? If this is the case then you can scan all documents and upload them online yourself on the UKVCAS website for which you should have been sent emails on how to register. Alternatively, you can pay an additional fee to have them sca...

Re: FLRM financial requirement if employed then self employed

In order to satisfy part (ii) you only need to provide any payslips from salaried employment in the previous 12 months; it does not specifically state 12 months of payslips are required.

Re: Friends in other countries question

I included a list of 15-20 family/friends (generally people I was closer to and maintained contact with) and didn't have any issues. I think they just want you to demonstrate you have relationships in your country of origin (and probably less likely to provide deceptive information in an application).

Re: Extension of FLRM Urgent advice needed

See seagul's advice in the first reply to this post on the relevant pages to consult in the guidance document for this situation. You must supply evidence beyond payslips if you are employed by a company owned by yourself, a partner or specified family members.
