Just seen on another forum that someone who was granted a spouse visa on the 3rd October 2006 but didn't arrive in the UK until the 14th November 2006 (delay of 6 weeks) has just been granted ILR directly rather than having to apply for FLR first.

Maybe the BIA are being a bit more flexible.

What type of visa? If you mean visit (ie up to 6 months) then yes. If you mean permanently then no, I don't think it's possible until you get ILR.

I don't believe there is a way because what you are trying to do is bring her here to work - she looks after your son, you pay her in the form of accomodation and other living expenses.

However for others, all they need to do is to tick the last box under Q1.22 on the form AN. That is it! No need to submit a certificate in order to prove that! And as it says in the Guide ,,,, last bullet point .... "Your confirmation that you met this requirement in order to obtain settlement." .....

Don't think so - the only places advertised in Scotland on the BIA website are East Kilbride, Hamilton and Lanark. Probably not too far to travel from Glasgow.

They returned my wife's certificate when she applied for ILR. They then requested it again when she applied for BC.

Re: 5-year UK-visit visa holder apply for Schengen visa from

beg to disagree on this one as I had my brother in law with a 6-month UK visit visa able to apply for quick 3day visit to France. Was this recent or a while ago? I thought it use to be possible but checking the websites of various embassies suggests that it's no longer possible unless you have a Br...

In this case, once the lady's husband has established himself as a worker in any EU state except the UK, if he then choses to come back here and work, his rights accrue under EU law, not the UK Immigration Rules, and she will have an absolute right to accompany him as an EEA Family member.

Thanks for that update on the rules.

When did they start the 27 months visa? Saves so much hassle.
The rules were updated in July 2008 and should have been enforced straightaway, though whether all the ECOs did is another question.
