Good Day Dear People, I appreciate everyone helping out on this platform. I have gained alot from this platform. I would appreciate some help here: While I was a Masters International student in the UK I had baby with my boyfriend who was also an international student. Our child is now 10years old living with me in Nigeria.

After school, I got my work permit and another extension with my child as my dependent so I returned to Nigeria. My boyfriend was still there and he finally got his permanent residence. Although, while in the relationship we broke up several times and moved on back and forth.

We recently started talking again, although I have travelled several times to UK for visiting and for 2 years I never spoke to him but I always made sure I include in my application form that I have my child's father in uk although I am not on talking terms with him and same thing I tell them at the point of entry.

We recently started to speak this year and he told me he wanted to apply for our child's citizenship . We also concluded to come back together and get married .

My question: our relationship has been on some 2009 and we had our child a year after. We intend applying for our child's citizenship first
We intend getting married.
How does he apply for a spousal visa for me especially when we did not speak for 2 years before coming back this year?



Please I will appreciate the advice.
Thanks
Start gathering or rather building evidences around your relationship as in, stay in touch everyday through WhatsApp calls, WhatsApp Chat, Facebook chat and so on. The pictures you snapped with each other and your child too should help

Hello,

Am just starting my application for my spouse but his passport expires in the next 6months. By the time we are ready to submit, his passport will only have 5 months to expiration. Can I go ahead or should we apply for a new Nigeria Passport before submitting application. Please advise. Thank you

@justwise please I really need your advice on this�
Is it advisable to go for a tier5 Uk visa this period?
If yes..please what’s the process? How do I get a COS
from a licensed sponsor so I can get started.
Been trying to use agents to go through the process but almost all of them are not familiar with this type of visa.

Good day house. I've been following diligently since last year. I did my biometrics on the 6th of August 2020, already got a mail from TLS stating that my application has been transfered to UKVI. My concern is that up till this moment, I have not gotten an acknowledgement mail from homeoffice/UKVI or whomever is supposed to work on my application.
What could have caused the delay?
for spousal visa?
Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by Pamelapencil(f): 4:07am On Aug 29
Please I need help.
I have been reading and reading but I have not seen a case like mine.

My Guy got a job in the UK last year, and was asked to resume work on 8th June, 2019.
Due, to the love we shared he paid my bride price on 28th May, 2019. And husband travelled to the UK last year(June 7, 2019).

The issue here is that, Corona has really scattered the plans of him coming back, and we don't know how feasible his coming back and going back will be, not knowing the Quarantine rules. My parents and his parents are suggesting I go meet him in UK, and this is to save cost( we are young and starting life).

My Questions now are
1) Can I tidy a marriage certificate from a court and backdate it to the date we did our traditional marriage?

2) If its possible, which court will be preferred? Can I do it in Enugu or Onitsha?

3) If I am able to get the certificate, will pictures matter while applying?.

I miss my husband so much and we want to save cost.

1-Traditional you are married , but I don't think you can apply with dat... But plz don't back date anytyn. It is not easy as u think and it I'll give u a 10years ban... BCS dey verify everything

2- it's possible but not advisable

3- yes it does mata

Please don't miss him too much and do the wrong thing.b patient till when your husband can get back to nija and go to court for your ceremony. Ur self and hubby,4 witnesses 2from each family u r good to go. You don't have to wear a wedding gown or do a reception. So u cuttyn cost already...
I understand how u feel about the distance but patience is the key.

Q1. Dear please don't think of doing it. I know it is possible in Nigeria, don't complicate matters that might give you a ban of 10 years, then u have y self to blame. Most of this registry embassy still do underground check and if you go ahead and tidy a marriage certificate, the court might not document it for you and embassy now make enquiry noting to proof you did wedding at their registry. Beside you can only tidy up marriage certificate in local registry not in recognized registry that are standard. My advice just exercise patience and pray the pemdemic ends and y hubby comes bk and you do real registry.

Q2. Any one is preferable provided the certificate is recognised.

Q3. Pictures matters alot. It is part of the prove. Very relevant! Just you and hubby and two witnesses are just ok.

Moreso, you need to verify if the visa that your hubby have in the UK can bring in the partner. Because if the visa can not bring in partner then you have to be visiting. Just verify and know the kind of visa, then the house can advise.

If you don't have a transit visa......... No stamp..... Ensure you have toothbrush, bathing soap + towel in your hand luggage.......

After you freshen up, find a comfortable chair, head to any airport restaurant, feed your belly full (they don't accept naira). Hold your debit/credit card or cash........ grin cheesy

Just got a mail now that my passport is ready for collection. Hoping for the best

Thanks all for the information & insights. I've been greatly encouraged with the various comments.

Does anyone have update on spouse visa?

Here's my application history.......

Application type: *Spouse visa (STANDARD)*

Online application submitted: *17th January 2020*

Biometrics enrolled: *14th February 2020*

Biometrics confirmation mail from VISAINFO.SHEFO on *17th February 2020*

In Wk17, precisely *9th June 2020*, we sent enquiry status on application

Received email from UKVI Contact Centre Service on *11th June 2020*
that "*decision
has been made but due to COVID-19 situation, various UK and overseas
offices are closed and as such, delays may be incurred*".

In Wk23, precisely *24th July 2020*, I forwarded another enquiry mail.

Response from UKVI contact centre service on 3rd August 2020 that *"we have
referred your application to colleagues on the relevant team and asked that
they look into having your documents returned to you as soon as possible"*

Still waiting....the wait is nerve wrecking!

Kinpelz:
Good to hear. The last time I heard from them makes me wonder how long it will now take to conclude an application. A decision was made on mine since early April.


Hi Kinpelz, have you received any update on spouse application i.e UKVI or TLS correspondence?
Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by Kinpelz(m): 4:27pm On Sep 02
Not yet. I am already tired of waiting and very angry with entire process but there is nothing I can do.

I wrote them a complaint and they responded with the below. I also got same email that my application has been referred to colleagues...
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for your email correspondence of 6 August where you have raised a complaint stating that you submitted your visa application on 16 February and were told a decision had been made, when you contacted the Decision-Making Centre on 6 April, but you have still yet to receive your passport.

I am unable to uphold your complaint.

The Sheffield Visa Team have advised that a decision on your application was completed and notified to colleagues at the British Deputy High Commission (BDHC) in Lagos, in March. Regrettably, however, they were unable to release the decision to you, due to the COVID-19 lockdown, and have now asked to be sent a newly-dated decision.

Unfortunately, as the application is over 90 days old, it is likely that the decision will need to be printed within our UK office and sent securely to BDHC Lagos.

I regret that I am, therefore, unable to provide any timescale for the return of your passport and decision.

Whilst I appreciate that this is not the response you had hoped for, I trust it has helped to clarify the situation

Many thanks Kinpelz for the update, though it's frustrating, I'm relieved cos same must have applied to me. Let's believe God and keep hope alive...It will turn out for our good. You can also have your spouse nudge UKVI through her MP, I understand this works.

Please stay in touch.

Cheers

I almost died reading the various reports here on nairaland on spousal visa considering I had to do same for wifey. Very informative platform as usual but scarry accounts.

Finally put my act together and applied for her and she picked up her passport with the vignette today.

I've told her to let me recover first from the expenses before we talk about her travelling. LoL.

Timeline
Applied: 28 Aug 2020
Biometrics (VI): 31 Aug 2020

Dependant is same across board - someone depending on the main applicant (spouse/civil partner and under 18 children).

The GTV is a repackaged Tier 1 exceptional talent visa with the slight modification being that academics can now be assessed by UKRI for it.

It's main advantages over tier 2 are that you can work for anyone and no one and get settled in 3 years (years spent on tier 2 count towards the 3 years).
Re: UK Spouse Visa/Appeal Process-part2 by Miele(f): 12:14am On Sep 09
Hi guys,

It’s me again! I hope you all can indulge me.

I’m applying for my spouse visa sometime this week and I need to make sure I’m on the right track.

So my husband and I are currently living in my uncles house. He’s writing us a letter to state that we are allowed to be there indefinitely but the problem is that his ex wife’s name is still on the land deed.

They separated nine years ago and she left, my uncle hasn’t gotten around to taking her name off the house yet. I’m submitting the letter from him, property inspection report and the land deed (which still has the wife’s name as co-owner)

It’s a three bedroom house and it meets the accommodation requirement. It’s just me, my partner and my uncle living here at the moment.

Will her name being on the deed mess my application up?

What do I do? Should I explain this in the cover letter?
