The last two items under previous earnings are not mandatory, however no harm if you have enclosed.

Apart from the above I would suggest you to enclose the following also (though optional):

1) Print out of your self assessment done on the BIA website showing total points claimed

2) Print outs from the OANDA website showing conversion rate as at 31/12/08 (your last day of the earnings period claimed) and for maintenance funds, date of application (I think so). However I had taken the conversion rate on the day when I had the lowest balance in my bank account for the maintenance fund period, but greater than 2800 pounds

I had attached all these documents (got visa), this can make the visa officer's life simple if he has all things ready in front of him.

Good luck for your application.

Hi Jedi001,

You dont need the kids birth certificate now. You might need it when you apply for the dependent visas.

Harakiri is right. The points calculator printout will put your application on more solid grounding though I dont think the Oanda printouts are required but you must mention the rates you are using on the coverletter.

Thanks for the reply..Harakiri & Raghu, I must say being a part of this forum is a pleasure.

I forgot to mention in my post that I am putting the Self Assesment printout in my application.

Raghu I have already PMed you however I will ask again to everyone as I am confused about this section:

1. In VAF 9, for question 5.1 Do I write Yes or No? I have 2 dependants however they will join me later and I am applying for myself currently. Same is for question 5.6 also.

If I write NO then do I specify their details in questions 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.7?

In section 7 I will specify that dependants will join me later.


I have received a mail from VFS Chennai that I should write NO in 5.1 question, however that was long back I had sent this email.

Whoever has received the visa and was in the same position please guide me...thanks again for your help.

You must write yes in that since they will be joining you later. You write no only if they have no intension of joining you. Also please provide their details in the other sections (5.2 to 5.7)and also mention when they intend to travel in section 7. Remember you must fill all sections. If a particular section is not applicable to you mention NA but dont leave it blank unless its mentioned you dont need to fill it and can skip that section. All the best.

Thank you so much for your reply RAGHU!!! really appreciate it!!

I am all set now. I have put YES for 5.1 & 5.6 questions and I have mentioned my kid & spouse's details in 5.2 to 5.7 questions,

For 7.1 I wrote something like this:

Dependants:
==========
My wife and kid will join me in UK after 1 year from the date of my arrival in UK as dependants applicants, the exact date is unknown. Currently, only I am applying as the main applicant.

Is this fine?

Thanks again!!

Either you can book a room in hotel OR if you have any friends, family in UK, you can ask them to send a letter, electric/utility bills scanned copy or their rent agreement. with a copy of their passport.
