joyivro:
Good evening just wise,on this statement matter I’ve already printed out my statement and my hubbys own because of time to upload so honestly how long before it’s not acceptable.
Then if my hubby is the sponsor and I’m writing a cover letter does he still have to write.
Then if I have money in an office thrift society can I add it with a letter from the society.
And I’ve said it here before my budget is 1.8m for me and 2 kids,and hubby should have about 3m.thanks

1. How old is the printed bank statement?

2. Let your husband the sponsor write the sponsorship letter or both of you can

3. Yes you can add it with the letter from the society

4. You need to do a cost-breakdown so as to know if 1.8m will be enough

Check this link on Nairaland and post y questions. That is where u ask all y questions on UK spouse Visa Application
https://www.nairaland.com/4454398/uk-spouse-visa-application-2018

For your brother to qualify for spouse visa, him and her British wife must be in a genuine relationship. There av to be proof on the marriage such as marriage certificate (court marriage certificate) marriage pictures, other pic together, communication from WhatsApp chat(the screenshots), emails, calls and face book messanger. All depends on what media they communicate. They must be prove. The British lady av to come to Nigeria and wed y bros in court, then go bk to UK and prepare her documents to apply for your brother. The requirements for her documents, she needs to be permanent staff , agency worker or self employed or can take the saving route which is lots of money, about £62,000 I think to meet the financial requirements. For the requirements under permanent she need to be earning £18,600 per annum bf she can bring in y brother, with six months payslips and six months statement of ac. For the self employed she either go through cat F or Cat G. U can read that on goggle for self employed. Just ask the lady the job requirements she has. I think she will know better.

For your brother he needs to write test of English exams. But this days if u av a degree certificate, u can visit your university and they write to embassy that doing y university u were taught in English language, depending on the course u study, then get your original certificate and transcript and take it to NARIC (They r the organization in nig. in charge of validation for test of English if u are a graduate) , y bros need to do TBS test, need to pay for nhs, write supporting cover letter.

For his chances of getting spouse visa is for the marriage to be genuine. The British lady meeting the financial requirements, accommodation, and meeting the visa payment, nhs, TBS. The lady must budget about £3000 for Settlement visa. If the lady meets all requirements for sure y brother will get spouse visa.

Well lot of money is involved, it is very compulsory for her to come to Nigeria and marry y bros, except she is going to apply for fiance visa, when y bros gets it, then they wed in UK and fille for spouse visa. The duration for visa process for Settlement is 60 working days but depending, some got in 50, 45. Except u apply for priority then u get it like 23 working days or less.



Note: Make sure y brother knows much about this lady and the lady meets all the spouse requirements bf deciding to marry. All the best to y brother.

Kindly note that the NARIC is in UK not Nigeria.

Many thanks Justwise for the correction. I appreciate. Please Justwise for the saving route u mentioned £16k, I am reading £65k and £16k. The complete saving route involves lot of money .However if you earn under the requirements for income you can use £16,000 min savings to make up the differencendly . Many thanks for the correction.

I'm not sure it works like that, you can meet financial requirement by earning £18,600 a year, having £16000 savings or through your earnings as self employed.

Happy Sunday house. Please dear house for those of you that recently got visa this month. And submitted application around April. I will like to confirm if there is any UK seal on it? I just saw a friend's visa and it did not look like my previous visa sticker, in all my visa I do av round seal from the UK home visa but I am not seeing it on this visa. Any body collected his or her own to compare. The person in question submitted application around April 16, how comes is it showing from 18/07/19. We are still in the month of June. How come is home office putting July?. Please I will appreciate recent pictures of UK sticker from those that just got visa. Many Thanks.

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by Jyyes: 2:35pm On Jun 09
My previous visa issued in Oct 2018 had the seal you’re talking about, but my current visa don’t have it. I submitted my application on 3rd May 2019 and got my passport 31st May and saw that the seal isn’t there. From my investigation, I leant that the seal is no longer on visit visas issued from November 2018.
Regarding this the visa date, you should ask the applicant if he stated on his application that he was to travel in July, but I still don’t think that’s enough for the visa validity to start in July.

Many thanks. To be honest with you I don't know the time he stated on his application that he will be traveling. I am surprised that the validity started by July. It is an agent that assisted her for the visa process. I just hope the visa is just authentic. Many thanks. I appreciate your response

1. How old is the printed bank statement?

2. Let your husband the sponsor write the sponsorship letter or both of you can

3. Yes you can add it with the letter from the society

4. You need to do a cost-breakdown so as to know if 1.8m will be enough

She should please verify that visa, you know agents in Nigeria can do anything to make money , plus the fact that they can take advantage of the fact that there is no more seal on it.

No more seal on UK visa.
That started around November last year.

For the date..... I believe she filed July as travel date.... on picking up her passport she will see a note in her passport from UKVI advising her to check her travel date before booking any tickets.

Thank you very much for your prompt response to my question. However, from what I read I can see that the process is very stringent. You also suggest a fiance visa. Could you please be more kind to explain the fiance visa process to me and possibly suggest any other way you think my brother and the lady could find an easy way to this?

NB: The lady in question is not that financially buoyant as she has a little back injury and depends on government for upkeep.

Thanks as always.
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by Floraoye0417: 6:28pm On Jun 09
