Maintainence Funds Criteria of 7 days

Post by datastage » Sat Sep 20, 2008 9:15 pm

Hi ,

I am applying from US and planning to get the Maintainence Funds Letter and the 3 months statement after the second day of biometrics. I will submit the application and relevant documents by post immediately on the next day of biometrics

Policy Guideline says that evidence must not be more than 7 days than the date of submission of application.

Does it mean 7 days before the application date (which is date of biometrics an Payment date). ? I assume there should not be any problem for the applications with Maintainence Funds evidences produced in the 7 day window AFTER the biometrics . Please revert if I am incorrect.

hi Deepinder....

I guess you got my question wrong.
I already have the letter format for the maintenance fund which is to be
issued by Bank.
Many thanks to Kanwar for the same.

I need a format which would help me clarify to BHC that the
amount I am showing for Maintenance has come from my friend.

Since BHC would obviously see the amount in my account hence in order to make things clear I need a letter format which would state that my friend has sent me this amount as a gift.

This would help me make my case stronger that the amount is not illegally borrowed.

I would really appreciate if someone had faced the same scenario and would guide me.

Thanks

hi datastage,

You should get your bank statements just a day or two before your date of appointment for Visa at Visa office...the date when statement was given by bank shud not be more than 7 days prior to ur appointment date...all your formalities including biometrics would be done on the same date.

All the best...

Fee is separate for each of the applicants

Hi Kandasamy,
Fee is separate for each of the applicants. Dependents need to pay the same fee as you (and separately), it will not be included in your fee.
Best regards,
Mani

Hi,

Thanks for your immediate response. I am having few more doubts.
1. Whether I need to show the accommodation proof in UK with my application
2. For the maintenance fund I want to show my wife salary account. I plan to submit following documents
a. My bank statement for 3 months
b. Letter from my bank stating that I am having minimum balance of 2,800 pounds
c. My wife bank statement
d. Letter from my wife bank my stating that she is having minimum balance of 3,200 pounds

I need to get any NOC from my wife or above document is sufficient to show my maintenance fund

Could you please confirm the above of list of document is ok for maintenance fund

Regards
Kandasamy

But my frd what would happen if the date of submission is the 8th day i.e a statement dated 23rd September would it still be valid if someone applies on 30th September.

Please reply
Thanks.

Hi
From my employer I can get the 12 months salary slip duly sealed n signed but as per my company policy they don't provide me the salary certificate in the letter head. They will give only the scan copy of the salary certificate. I got this salary certificate when I am in UK three months old Can I show this salary certificate. Please guide me.

Regards
Kanasamy

[quote="deepinder7090"]Dear SPPC,

It is not mandatory to submitt form 16 TAX DOCUMENT .
You can submitt 12 months salary slip duly sealed n signed
12 months bank statements showing your net salary crditet again sealed n sign

as per the guidelines you can see that the embassy has also warn against the submission the form 16 reason been the tax document does not always cover the whole period so it makes EC officer difficult to cosider

IN your case if you want to call your family within one year you have to shows funds for them n if not you are calling them after one year than you don;t have to

To show funds
2800+1600+1600 ==6000 pounds

these funds should be available in your saving and can be in the joint account with your wife only. your wife is not eligible to show her savings to support her, reason being you are the principal applicant

dear sandeep,

Only passport is required to show your age proof as per the PBS guidelines if any confusion go thru the guidelines first n if not able to locate it tellme will help you.

deepinder

If you are not coming with them but they are to join you in 5 months time their cost will apply now, for them to have their visas. If it is more than 6 months to 1yr then it is reasonable to process just yours for now.

Hi,

Not sure if this is useful for those who applied from UK, however for India applicants it take approximately 40 calendar Days, no doubt some people get it within 30 calendar days as well..

We are currently meeting published service standards for consideration of all work permit applications."

this is only for workpermits or for Tier 1(general) as well?

I called HO today and they said that they r considering 27th aug's applications at the moment.
