EC - letter as sole proof of accommodation?

I was going to submit an invitation letter from a friend as proof of accommodation arrangements and her telephone bill as proof of her address. It's been quite a long time and I have not received the bill, which was sent after the letter. It may be lost in the post. I'm not sure if I should wait for...

Yes, you should definitely contact them. It would be helpful if you can show them documentation or quote from an official source such as the UK Border Agency on the matter.

As rajesh9pl said, you'll need to get them translated. Check the guidance or with VFS for the criteria that must be met for your translator and translated documents. You should also submit both the original and translated documents.

Thanks for the link! That is reassuring. Requesting for a post-dated leave to enter (max. 3 months) is one thing, duration / validity of entry clearance another and actually entering UK yet another. What's worrying you? If you could explain a bit more clearly. Well basically, I am concerned about th...

That sounds simple enough! Custodian, I don't suppose you submitted all the documents previously submitted for your HSMP application either? Or proof of accommodation arrangements? Please adhere to the EC requirements of the country you apply from. :D There does seem to be a slight variation from co...

Re: Cleared HSMP - Query on EC under Tier1

1. I had given the previous Earning proof from March 2007 - Feb 2008 for my HSMP Application. That included my payslips and Bank statement. Now while applying for EC, do I need to give the details for the same period or I'll have to give the details of last 12 months immediately before the EC appli...

Re: HSMP

Personel details form should be filled completely but Appendix1 once Part one is completed we can directly go to Part 7 of the form skipping Part 2 to 6. I agree! That's what I told the customer service officer I spoke to but he said that all parts should be filled. I'm wondering if they'll make me...

Thanks CoolestGuyC for posting the reply from the BHC. It's been some time now, did you submit accommodation proof after all? If you did, what type of proof was it? A invitation letter from a friend?

I asked vfs and was told by one person that it's compulsory and another that it is optional!

Re: HSMP letter Holder : which documents required for EC now

See 1.3 - Validity of entry clearance and leave to enter Thanks sushdmehta. According to that, an intended travel date of up to 3 months at the time of EC application is allowed. That pretty much matches the 89 days that I was told by the VAC. I'm not sure about the following part though. 'For appl...

I was told by my local visa application centre that it will be for two years in cases such as these. According to pg 9 on http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... yguide.pdf it should be three years? Or am I misinterpreting it?

Thank you T90! Just to confirm, that's 3 years from the intended travel date stated when applying for EC? I was told by the visa application centre that that can be 89 days from the date of EC application.
