Aphrodite007:


(1) read backwards, it’s in the thread.. almost above your question.

i swear i read ever page of this thread.. i even read every page of the spousal visa thread to the current page 455.. so reading this one was very easy.. I just cant understand the specifics for mine from reading other people's application..

(2) best to wait until you get the visa so as not to submit more than necessary docs Which visa please? . Because you’ll need proof of address of your current place and the previous place. If you want to be added and the owner of the house doesn’t mind, no problem. Otherwise it will just be classed as proof of of address for just 1 person (which isn’t a problem).

I guess so then.. probably 1 person's proof of address while i use my bank statement with same address.. thanks

(3) she doesn’t receive bank letter? That’s very unusual. As for GP, so she goes to the GP without being invited? She must be really healthy. If you don’t have these, just replace with others. Simple.

bank letters? like monthly statement? thats all i know about for us.. will ask about GP n hospital appointments.. smiley @must be really healthy.. we thank God.. and we never get baby too

please can u help with nos 1? please... cry

Sorry for the late reply.

Your employer should be able to give you access to your p60. We just had an online portal I could print them from, then I went to get it stamped by my employer to make it more legit. In addition, I did send all the pages of my contract. When you pay for expedited service there is no limit to what you can send to UKVI so I just took all I could. The guy that was scanning my documents had to tell me to chill. grin

Goodluck on your application.

Congratulations! I will be applying in a few weeks and currently trying to prepare and avoid having to pay a lawyer thousands of pounds. I paid for my first application before discovering naira land threads and would really love to avoid doing that again.

I do have a question though. How did you obtain your p60? Also did you send all pages of your employment contract? I have had 4 contracts so far. Thanks.



Re: Applying For FLR After Your Initial UK Spouse Visa (extension) by teejay231: 11:07pm On Jan 22
Thanks for the reply. You have been very helpful. I do have my p60 for year ending March 2019 but have changed jobs twice since then and don't have a recent p60. I was thinking of doing the scanning myself. Also do you have to put the documents in groups / section when scanned? Thanks.

Re: Applying For FLR After Your Initial UK Spouse Visa (extension) by richdopeboi: 11:18pm On Jan 22
Thanks am not due for a p60 from my other employer am using two non salary employment Category A income Divided by 6 multiply by 12 =annual salary to meet the financial requirements” (law) If you're working for an employer on 5 April they must give you a P60. They must provide this by 31 May, on paper or electronically.“
Re: Applying For FLR After Your Initial UK Spouse Visa (extension) by edondoo: 5:46pm On Jan 25
I'm not sure about putting your documents into groups. Since I did the super priority service they scanned the documents for me. I just had it in these groups, in the folder I took to the appointment.

Re: Applying For FLR After Your Initial UK Spouse Visa (extension) by teejay231: 5:39pm On Jan 26
I was thinking to scan the documents myself. A lot of my documents are electronic documents so do I have to print and take to the appointment? Do they scan in any other? Especially concerning mixing financial documents - bank statements, payslips, contract and offer letters with address correspondence documents.

Re: Applying For FLR After Your Initial UK Spouse Visa (extension) by edondoo: 1:48pm On Jan 27
Yes, I would print the documents and take to the appointment. Make sure they are official documents though. Tell your bank to print official bank statements for you (if it longer than 3 months they may need to send it to your home) and tell your employer to stamp or sign your payslips.

Re: Applying For FLR After Your Initial UK Spouse Visa (extension) by teejay231: 10:54pm On Jan 27
Thanks a lot. I think I will be asking my bank for at least 12 months bank statement. My payslips are electronic from 3 different employers.

Hi All,

This thread (and the initial UK Spousal Visa thread) has been of immense help to me and my wife during the application processes. I was going to pay a lawyer thousands of pounds for information and guidance you guys are providing for free. Thank you all very much. I got approved last year November, but just got around to posting my list of information:

Proof of Identity / Travel History
British Residence Permit for Applicant
Applicants' International passport (original)
Spouse passport (Original)
Applicant Passport Photograph

Proof of Application
Relationship Declaration
Consent for Applicant
Marriage certificate (Original)
Printout of Application

Proof of Cohabitation
Proof of property ownership from the owner of property you live in ie mortgage statement
"Letter signed by the owner of property you live in stating that you have
permission to live there"
Copy of an ID document of the owner of the property you live in
Car insurance certificates
Mobile phone contracts
Pensions Letter (Combination of Previous and current Jobs )
GP Letters
Letter from Relative or Friends confirming that partner and I lived with them for
some or all of the 2 years

Finances
Letter from my employer
Applicant's Payslips from 2017
Applicant's bank statements (2016-2019)
Applicant p60 for relevant period
Applicant's Signed Contract of Employment

Educational/Proof of English language
English language test certificate A2

Other
Printout IHS payment
Printout IHS reference number
Printout UK visa application payment
Printout appointment confirmation

We applied approximately 7 days before the expiry of my initial visa. We did this for several reasons: not applying before 28 days from the expiry of visa as per UKVI rules, and also when it comes to applying for ILR you need to have been here 5 years total or else you'll have to do this same process to cover the time between the expiry of FLR and the 5 years which could end up being a matter of 1 month. We used the super priority service and got a decision in 3 hours by text. To me, it was worth it for peace of mind. Plus my job was on my case about the visa so it was nice to be able to give them an answer asap.

Once again, thank you guys for all your help! Best of luck.

Hello Good People,

Been some time. Time does fly past when you are having fun..... Lol. So that mystery member always on the sidelines watching events is here again and with some good news of course!

I applied and got my FLR (M) approved. Thanks to God and everyone on this forum that took time to share their experience and answer inquiries.

Completed the online form within the 1st 3 days of February and attended the Biometric session on 15th February.

Paid for super priority to get an outcome quickly and also waited till my initial FLR was almost expired to ensure that my new period will be inside of 5years and not less (upon expiry wrt ILR).

I got an email on Monday stating that my application was successful and an appreciation for using super priority....lol

List of documents submitted are outlined below:

Proof of Identity / Travel History
British Residence Permit for Applicant
Applicants' International passport (original) - Old and New
Spouse passport (Original)
Child's Birth Cert and Passport (Originals)

Proof of Application
Relationship Declaration
Consent for Applicant
Marriage certificate (Original)

Proof of Cohabitation
Tenancy Agreement
Sky/Virgin Correspondence
GP Letters
HMRC Correspondence
Utility bills
Bank Correspondence
* All of these were about 25 documents (the more the merrier)*

Finances
Letter from employer
Payslips for 6 months prior
Bank statements for 6 months prior highlighting salary payments for the previous 6 months
P60 for relevant period
Signed Contract of Employment

Educational/Proof of English language
English language test certificate A2

Other
Printout IHS payment
Printout IHS reference number
Printout UK visa application payment
Printout appointment confirmation

As I paid for scanning there, it was quite calm. Just kept passing the documents across and they got scanned as due. All of the documents were returned to me immediately and the personnel was courteous/pleasant irrespective of the number of documents (i think she may have seen worse...lol).

Paid quite a sum though but it was generally worth it as I feel I received value for money. Aside the IHS, Application Fee and Super priority payments, I also paid for scanning and for the appointment date/time

I am available for any questions that may aid others in the process of seeking their extension as I did some good reading on the side also.

Again, Thanks to God and y'all. We move to the next!

On another note, we should plan to hook up o as we have been catching up on this platform and it will be nice to put a face to these pseudonyms. I'd not be surprised if some of us have worked at the same establishments/project over time....Lol

Congrats to you. I applied for mine on the 18th of Jan and did my biometrics on the 24th of Jan, still not received any response from them though as I did not pay for super priority. Would update here once I have received my BRP. My previous BRP officially expired yesterday. By God's grace I would get a positive response.

love great positive stories..

please what exactly are "Relationship Declaration & Consent for Applicant" ??

Just a typed document stating you are married to your spouse and a consent from your spouse?

Also, if you can put an amount to how much you spent excluding the super priority (i never reach that level).. how much was it?

Also this statement.. "Paid for super priority to get an outcome quickly and also waited till my initial FLR was almost expired to ensure that my new period will be inside of 5years and not less (upon expiry wrt ILR)."

Hmmm wasn't that risky?

Hi Profemebee

The Relationship Declaration and Consent for Applicant are ready-made documents you get to print (at the end of your application) from the website. Yourself, Your sponsor and any other 3rd party whose documents you will be relying on for your application will endorse these.

Pay Breakdown

Application - 1,033
IHS Payment - 1,000
Payment for Appointment Date - 159.99 (this will be necessary only if the specific day you wish to submit is full free apptmnts. I submitted on a Saturday and the free portion was full by the time I was to choose mine)
Scanning - 45 (You may wish to scan yourself from home but the website can be funny, so I just paid to have all my documents scanned at the appointment)
A2 Exam - 150

For the last question, I waited till my 33months initial visa was almost out (4 days to expiry) so I can have enough time on the next (30 months). The big picture is to ensure that I am well within 5 years at the point of the ILR (else one risks seeking another extension - paying the entire large sum to just cover possible a few days/month). This said, I put in the application within the 28 day rule also ensuring the documents I submitted were within the 28 day rule as well.

Hope this helps. Can clarify further if required.

Cheers.

Thanks for the robust answers.

I came in with UK naric statements.. do i need to re-order fresh statements or use same statements?

For the last question, I waited till my 33months initial visa was almost out (4 days to expiry) so I can have enough time on the next (30 months).

Also, this model of waiting for the 33 months to almost be out is less risky/better if one is applying with Super priority yea? Please confirm..

28days rule to put in application and documents.. as long as one can pay the fee for appointment days.. i think that should be easily sorted..

Please how many years of utilities bills and proof of cohabitation did u use? did u show monthly statements or maybe just 2/3 per year of each statements ?

Pardon my many questions please..

Re: Applying For FLR After Your Initial UK Spouse Visa (extension) by Spinardo: 3:04pm On Mar 22
Hi Profemebee

Sorry I am just getting across...

You will need to re-order the NARIC statements. You cannot use the old one.

Not necessarily. However if you are in a role/job where your employer requires it urgently, then you may use the Super Priority. The rule of the thumb however is that as long as you submit your application (best to also attend the Biometrics) before the current visa expires, you are covered. If your employer is fussy, they just need to check your details on the ECS.

Also "not necessarily". If you submit your application early (about a month before your visa expires), you may be lucky to get a free date for your desired/availability. The period of your application also matters. If it is not a busy period (December, June, July, August), then you may be just fine as well and not bother about the hassle of getting a free date.

Though they advise that you submit just the last 2 years but I submitted from my date of entry into the Country. More will NEVER hurt.

Submitted one type (across 4/5 sources) for each Quarter.

For account statements, I submitted just the lats 6 months (note though that I applied as "Employed" Category A).

Hope this helps. Shout out if you require any more info.

Hmmm wasn't that risky?

Hi @Mystiqueefua please was your biometric appointment at Croydon? If no, please would you mind telling me where?
Hubby had his biometric on 3rd February at Croydon and we are yet to hear anything.

Sorry for late reply, my appointment was at Sheffield, cos I live there.

I am curious as to how the current lock down will affect renewals and super priority applications? Any ideas?

No mention of if super priority applications are still possible or if we have to scan our documents by ourselves and submitting biometrics. I am curious if anyone has submitted an application recently. Any help please. Thanks.

On the link under 'Application and Service Centres in the UK', it says you cannot book an appointment. And if you've already booked, you will be contacted to be informed that it has been cancelled. Whether regular, super or super duper o, they all fall under the same category grin
