There is no UKBA it is UKVI. He does not need to update anything1.Should he update his marriage status to UKBA before applying spouse visa?
All of the applications are done online now. You are the applicant so you must apply online yourself. If you are outside the UK, you apply online and submit your documents as instructed by the online system2.Can he apply in Uk for me, if so then where the documents will be submitted.?
You must submit a marriage certificate which has a date. So you should give that date3. We had a telephonic nikkah back in May 2018 so my nikkah date is of May 2018. Also I made my new passport and ID card with my husband name within two months.My husband came in Mar, 2019 after he got his visa and we had a proper function.
My question is that which date should I mention in my visa application form.
