I got married couple of months back and she's currently on a UK student visa (She's in the UK for the past one year as student).
Whilst applying for my extension (I'm planning to apply for extension as soon as possible), can I file her dependant application along with my extension?
Could you also advise me on the following questions please:
1. If she can, the fees would be Â£250 (reduced cost) if I post in the same application?
2. How much maintenance fund I should show to support her? (I've been in the UK for more than 12 months)
3. What extra documents I need to provide for dependant application? (Marriage certificate etc?)
to prove relationship
jt bank a/c
jt insurance policy
name in passport as husband wife vises versA
jt property a/c
Many thanks for your help.
the first poster (Sushil) did not make any reference to the law and his/her answer was incorrect.viper555 wrote:Many thanks for your advice.
I'm slightly confused with the contradictory responses. It seems illogical that she has to go back to India to get the dependant visa when she clearly has the right to remain in the UK. Had someone gone through a similar situation here? Can anyone give a comprehensive advice on this please?
In this case, the "relevant" PBS migrant being referred to is you - not your wife.viper555 wrote:The paragraph also states:
If the Relevant Points Based System Migrant is a Tier 4 Migrant, the Tier 4 Migrant must be applying 4 for or have entry clearance or leave to remain for a course of study that is longer than six months.
I believe Tier 4 is a student visa and this qualifies for switch?
Apologies if am incorrect. Please let me know your thoughts.
How to switch into Tier 2 (General)jeff84 wrote:Thanks for your quick answer, I am very surprised that despite we will get married while in the UK and live married for some time, she will have to go back to her home country and apply from there, what is the rationale?
What if she switches to Tier-2 visa after her Tier-4 visa, will she also have to leave and apply from home?
