Also, my payslips are on company letterhead, do I still need letter from employer to validate

Thank you. This link is so helpful

evenda:


yes i think it should.. i am using this website to calculate mine .. it is helpful to calculate the 28days rule.

I haven't applied yet, but it does state in the requirement list to have a letter from employer... mine was from HR stating my employment details, salary and start date

#We had 2 folders of no 2,5&6 one for originals another for photocopies and put a sticker in front of the folder and wrote all the content of each folder. We didn’t want to hear that they didn’t see one document or the other. We also didn’t want a situation whereby one document will get missing in the process of them taking the docs they wanted.

#Some people might find some of these things irrelevant but we didn’t want to give the home office any reason to refuse our application. So if any doc was missing another would suffice.

Simply include a letter in your document package(submissions to Sheffield), explaining oversight.......

Ensure with all your other documents, every i is dotted and t's crossed........
Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by Kenttoday: 6:15pm On Feb 18
