Fiancé visa
 
Hi,

I am planning to apply for the Fiance Visa at the end of Feburary, and I'm wondering if someone would be kind enough to answer some questions that aren't very clear.

I'm trying to get together all the documents that don't need to be dated, i.e. older than 28 days from the date of application.

Which documentation would need to actually be dated? Would this just be bank statements, letter from employer , or are there anymore that would need to not be older than 28 days from the application.

And just to confirm also, that these documents must NOT be older than 28 days from the application. Does that mean that if I applied on the 27th online, that any documents which need to be dated could be no older than the 29th of January?

We are booking via TLSConnect - if booking in Feburary, would I be able to book the appointment for early March?

Does the Premium Service mean we would get a response in 10 days?

In addition, I'm currently living with my parents and they said we can live there until we save for a deposit for a flat. So do we need a surveyors report? Or - would we need to just provide a copy of the mortgage deeds, land registry documents and letter from parents saying she can stay here? Also, what are the land registry documents we need to supply?

I also want to know if taking the documents to the appointment at TLSconnect, whether or not they need to be seperated barcode. I read somewhere that they need to be, but can't find any references to this anywhere?

I also have read that we need duplciate copies of everything.

Also, is a copy of my (supporting finance) passport page sufficient?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

All financial and employment documents must meet the 28 day rule, and the most recent document in a series (i.e., payslip or bank statement) needs to be dated within 28 days of the online application submission date.

I am not sure where you get the 29th of January?? If you apply online on 27th Jan, then your most recent financial/employment document can't be older than 30 Dec.

Priority (NOT Premium) service doesn't guarantee a faster decision time in any way. The difference between "priority" and "premium" is that "priority" service gets your application put ahead of the non-priority queue for processing. "premium" services are extra (IMHO, unnecessary) services available at the VAC like lounge access, SMS notifications, courier service, etc.

You just need a letter from your parents and the land registry document (which you can get for £3 online) which proves your parents own the property. You don't need a Property Inspection Report unless you're living with other people and there's doubt as to whether or not it might be overcrowded. You can also provide a recent mortgage statement if you want but it's not strictly necessary. You should also provide a copy of the property owner's passport bio page.

Your partner should plan on bringing all of their supporting documents to the biometrics appointment, even if they have uploaded them yourself beforehand.

If you weren't asked to provide barcode separators, you don't need to provide them. It depends on the VAC

You only need a plain photocopy of your UK passport bio pages - It doesn't need to be certified and it doesn't need to be a full copy of their passport

Hi, I am filling in the form for the TB test for my fiance, it asks for the visa type. I have put "___APPENDIX FM PARTNER (FAMILY OF ASETTLED PERSON)" where it says 'visa type'. Even on the uk GOV website, I can't see what the official name is for the visa. Will this be ok, or can someone tell me the official title of the visa. I don't want it to cause any problems further down the line with the visa application. Many thanks for your help in advance.

Please learn some forum etiquette before posting, it's really rude to tack onto someone else's thread with your own, completely unrelated, question. You've also posted this multiple times in other threads.

Apologies. My fiancé posted the questions on my behalf, but isn't very experienced when it comes to using forums.
