  • Uk Settlement - Spouse visa.

    Hello. I will soon be applying for a settlement-spouse visa. Any tips or info that anyone can offer, anyone else completed on of these recently? Thank you.

    Have you read 'How to Obtain a Settlement Visa for the UK (Revised July 2012)' above? It's full of 'tips' and info.

    I see it was last revised in 2012 and Mrs FM and I did our settlement visa in Bangkok in 2016 so some things may have changed.

    If you have any specific points you need checking then list them and post them here, and maybe someone will be able to help.

        I'm going to apply for my wife and I when my contract finished here in Thailand in August - luckily we'll have been married 2 years then.

            Thank you for your responses. I have read through the info here already on this, but as you pointed out its not up to date, i am really hoping to connect with people who have gone through the process or are going through, as this always sheds a real-world view as apposed to what info is available to read. Still hopeful.. Thank you

                Thanks Fruitman and thanks lokjit for the Migrate website. Paid £285 for the DIY package and everything seems a lot clearer now especially now that I can satisfy the maximum savings requirement given I won't have a job to go back to, with our lass.
                Already spoken to Jason from Migrate who went above and beyond helping me with the million questions I had.
                Looking like as I finish working here in Thailand in June is when we apply for the visa. Will pay the extra for priority service which will bring the agonising wait down from 3 months to 6 weeks. Arhhhhhh!
                Happy New Year guys and let's see what 2022 brings us eh.

                  Yeah finding more and more info on that Migrate.co.uk website and the latest is that we don't have to be married for years before we apply. That is only applicable to couples who are not married.

                  Another significant point is that you can take any savings you have here into the calculation for the spouse visa, not just what you have in back home.

                  Yet another, is the importance of just how misleading the online applications questions can be (and yes more money) however, I'll pay for Migrate to check all our docs before submitting. A massive £450! I may have to get a job back home to pay for all this!!!

                  Phew! It's all go!

                  Any other tips anyone can add would be greatly appreciated _
