Representation can make or break a case. For instance, if you are exempt from the English language requirement, you would be expected to represent the particulars of your situation in the right manner, in a way that would make the ECO understand that you are exempt from that requirement and that it has not just been left out of the application.
Child-dependant visas – Children intending to join you and your spouse in the UK, can apply at the same time as you! We will help you navigate the requirements (financial, relationship etc.) and advise you on the documentation required in support of their applications.
Providing information regarding your accommodation arrangements in the UK is an important aspect of a Spouse visa application. The accommodation must conform to the specific requirements of the Housing space standards. At the SmartMove2UK, we ensure that your application meets every requirement as per the Immigration Rules!
Showing your capability to support yourself through your funds is an important part of your application. SmartMove helps you meet these requirements through the use of your savings, fixed deposits, savings in the name of parents and even government funding! We’ll help you find the most optimal ways of meeting this requirement.
The applicant needs to make a UK spouse visa application to the Home Office. The applicant can make this application from overseas or from within the UK [subject to meeting the requirements]
The applicant, sponsor or their representative is required to complete an online application form, an appendix and provide the relevant supporting evidence in support of the application. They are required to pay the UK spouse visa fee and Immigration Health Surcharge as part of the process.
The applicants are required to submit the supporting documents along with their passports and biometrics, at the local VFS centre. If the sponsor chooses to submit any documents in the UK, they may visit a UKVCAS centre and submit the said documents in support of your application.
The government since 2017 has introduced the minimum income threshold for a British or settled person wishing to sponsor their Non-EU Spouse / partner for a UK spouse visa without dependent children, is £18,600.
An additional gross annual income of £3,800 is required for the first child sponsored in addition to the partner and an additional £2,400 for each further child.
Note: If the financial requirement and other requirements are not met, all the applicants will be refused.
Children under 18 years of age can enter the UK as their parent’s dependants. The applicant can make an application for their dependant at the same time when they make their spouse visa application.
Note: That the sponsor must show income of £22,400 if one child is accompanying the applicant. The level of minimum income varies depending on the number of dependant children being sponsored.
If your UK spouse visa application has been refused- you would be eligible to file an appeal if you feel the decision is incorrect. Any UK spouse visa refusal application is assessed in entirety in order to understand whether the application has merits for an appeal. Over the past 10 years we have come across a wide variety of complex cases with refusals on different parameters.
It indeed becomes a tense situation to see a refusal but the applicants should understand that such applications need to be closely and carefully dealt with while being assessed in order to see whether filing for a fresh application or filing an appeal would be a win-win solution or not.
