Sounds like this is a spouse visa and the UK sponsor is self-employed?

Perhaps slightly heavy on the relationship evidence but it looks fine, good luck!

Hi clever octopus,

thanks for the reply!!

UK sponsor is employed via his ltd company, HMRC do not view this as self employed however ukvi do sort of.

I have to agree the app is relationship heavy, however we wanted to provide as much relevant information as possible if it was at our disposable we have included it.

As mentioned, we will be looking to submit soon, however the process has just changed, therefore the app will be submitted via sheffield within the UK. Will the "applicant" need to submit her original passports (and previous) or will copies suffice?

thanks!

The applicant must submit their original passport (and any previous passports, if they still have them) - They put the vignette (sticker) right in the passport itself, so it's crucial to send the original

Hi clever octopus, (and anyone else reading)

I have emailed UKVI in relation to submitting original passport and i have had the following response;


"Thank you for contacting the UK Visas and Immigration international enquiry
service.

You need to submit your passport, application form and any email
confirmation to the Visa Application Centre where you will have the
biometric information taken and to submit your application. All other
supporting document including the old passport, should be sent to Sheffield.


Please note: Your visa application will be assessed and decided by the
British High Commission. Our staff at the UK Visas and Immigration
international enquiry service do not assess and are unable to influence the
outcome of your visa application. We strongly advise applicants do not
confirm travel arrangements to come to the UK until you have received your
visa.

For any further details, or should you need to contact us again please
refer to our website at https://ukvi-international.faq-help.com/, select
appropriate country, click next and then select E-Mail form and complete
as instructed. We will aim to come back to you within 1 day."



So from what i can gather the applicant does not send their original passport to sheffield...so would they take the passport and sent it to sheffield themselves? or does it get stamped at the visa center if approved, slightly confused now.

if anyone else has any ideas please share

thanks!
