Tier 2 visa! If husband is british

Post by Vicki2018 » Thu Jun 21, 2018 4:46 am

Hello

I am intending on applying tier 2 visa for uk. However my husband is british citizen. Since I have a job, I wanted to go for tier 2 instead of spouse visa. I wanted to know if there is any reason that home office can reject the visa on basis of my husband being british and not applying for spouse visa ?

You can apply for any visa you qualify for. There is no rule that it must be a spouse visa if your haband is British. I myself was married to a BC and came to the UK on a different visa category when we moved here.

Bear in mind it has been difficult for members to get restricted Cos approval for tier 2 general in recent months.

Oh thats a relief. Thankyou sooo much.
My job is shortage occupation. I hope I would get COS soon.
Is there anything or any reason I need to provide them while applying for tier 2 (as in why I did not go for spouse visa) ?
Anything else I should be aware of ?
Thankyou again.

And what address should I give in visa application ? My husband's or the work place ?

Would that be okay if I give my husband's address (for tier 2 stay) ?

Tier 2 visa - query regarding Accomodation ??

Post by Vicki2018 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 1:16 pm

Hi
I will be applying for tier 2 visa soon. However , I have confusion regarding accomodation. My husband is british who lives in a different city than where my job would be (Although nearby - approximately 40 minutes drive). My employer has agreed to provide maintenance aswell. But what should I write in application ? The accomodation provided by employer or my husband's address ?
Please help me.

[/quote] you can get letter from your employer mentioning the address you would be staying (atleast for first 1 month after coming to the UK) if your employer is providing the accommodation. That should suffice as per my experience. Make sure you should align that address in your application form as well.

Although the employer address option is much easier and straight forward.

How would they know where your husband lives? People also commute way more than 40 minutes, so that's not an issue I would think. The residence is for sending your biometrics card, they send it to a near by post office. I don't see why they would look into it any further.
