Default Advice Please-Spouse SET-M (IRL) Application Procedure 2019/2020

Hi,

I hope this post finds you all well.

My wife's ILR application due in April 2020. So we're in the middle of preparing a checklist and relevant supporting documents. We arn't going through in person or premium application, it'd be postal. It'll be much appreciated if you could reply with bullet points:
1. Could anyone please advice on the current procedure for spousal ILR application (especially want to make sure paper application option still available, like for previous FLR one?).
2. Minimum passport validity from the date of application (6 months?)?
3. Current fee breakdown (I know this will be increased in April next year, as usual)

Thanks in advance.

Zak

1. It has to be done online - There is no paper form available
2. There is no minimum passport validity rule
3. There is no IHS fee, so it's just the settlement application fee (2,389) for a normal (non-priority) application. Add 800 for super priority service

Hey,

Thanks for your quick reply.

So it'd be submitting the application online and then sending the original documents by post, like for FLR?

Cheers

All documents are scanned and uploaded. Once you submit your online application, you are then directed to UKVAS (official partner of UKVI), where you book your biometrics appointment and also upload your scanned documents. You must bring all original documents to your appointment in case anything needs to be scanned again by centre staff.
