Tier 1 General Dependent Extension

Post by Rajdgl » Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:53 pm

Hi

I acquired British citizenship through Tier 1 General - 5 Years, Then ILR and Naturalisation.
My wife is due for a PBS Dependant - partner Extension.

I need clarification with regard to Maintenence Funds Pls.

She will be the main applicant as she is applying online on her own using the link below.
https://visas-immigration.service.gov.u ... nt-partner
we do have a joint bank account where the funds will be there for less than 90 days.(£630)

Can i show my bank account for the 90 days to meet the criteria as i mainted the amount, if so do i need to submit a covering letter or any other forms of documentation to confirm it is coming from me.

Also online Bank statements are the norms these days, am i supposed to get this certified from the bank on each page.

Your Earliest reply will be much appreciated

It must be for a minimum of 90 days otherwise she is likely to get a visa refusal for not meeting the maintenance fund requirement.

ANY bank account in EITHER of your names is fine.

They need to be stamped and verified by the bank.

Hi CR001, are there any exceptions that may be taken into account regarding the 90 days minimum?

Not for the maintenance funds for a PBS category visa.

If you have questions, kindly start your own topic, stating the immigration history and circumstances.

Hi
I am in the process of finalising the pbs Dependant application online for my wife.

I wanted to pay for IHS , The link has taken to another site, i am Stuck here as it is asking to enter the visa Expiry date for myself.
There is no link or any other option to choose or mention that "The person you're joining or remaining with" is British.

Any ideas or any work arounds please.
i am sending the application through post but filled it online.

Your timely reply will be much appreciated.

She should be applying alone.

See link below how another user managed to get it right.

Thank You. Much appreciate for the pointers.

The link doesn't say anything except it claims i intended to apply in person, hence i selected the link "apply in person and it asked me for my details" and i managed to pay the charges £600

I read the post before i queried.

I am filling the application on behalf of her from the link below

https://visas-immigration.service.gov.u ... nt-partner

Filling the application here seems much easier than the paper equivalent.

After completing the form , to further proceed you need to pay the IHS Charges, it is here i am having trouble...

Any thoughts ....

My view is the paper forms are easier, but that is my personal opinion.

You should try pay on the separate IHS website.

I don't know what the online dependent forms ask or work. I finished my journey before the online forms came in.

TIER I PBS DEPENDANT PARTNER - EXTENSION ONLINE APPLICATION

Post by Rajdgl » Tue Feb 13, 2018 7:17 pm

Hi All

can someone confirm whether UKVI will send out acknowledgement letters for tier 1 PBS dependant PARTNER extension online application .I have posted the supporting documents.
I have been waiting for more than 3 weeks, no letters acknowledging the application.

I guess they don't since the application is made online but would like to hear from someone here.

ok so confusion was this person was actually planning to go in person, however what we can do is go to premium appointment booking, pay for surcharge which comes fine as 600£, pay it and get the reference number and come back to our online application and put the reference number there and move on. paying surcharge and reference is important , how we get it does not matter. i think this confusion with his solution.

thanks

You can pay it via the IHS website directly, get the ref number and then input number in the form.

It really isn't complicated.

If you are applying by post, you have to pay on the IHS website anyway and the applicant applies alone.

this is the problem when you start online application, it ask you the person you are joining and when you enter details that they are british citizen it all fine, but as soon you reach IHS website, it than ask you for same british citizen visa expiry, which seems a bug and therefore we all get stuck there. If you go directly to IHS website it again ask you to make account and with same email, it will again take you to same thing. There is for sure bug on this online beta version.

If i show my bank statement for my wife maintenance , do i need to attach any letter ?

thankyou
