Hi I'm Kelly, I'm an Aussie and my hubby is dual UK/Aussie as are our kids. We have lived in Australia all our married life and have decided to head to the UK to join hubby's family business. We are hoping to head over first week of March, so the last 3 months I have been madly selling off all our stuff, organising passports and trying to get my visa. Still waiting on the visa.... Hopefully will have in back in the next 2 weeks so we can organise flights and finalise schools for the kids apon our arrival....soooo much to do!

I'm Joppa, male, regular on Expatforum for over 5 years and mod for the last 4. Have experience dealing with UK immigration since early 1970s, when visa cost nothing(!) and applications were sorted in a matter of days (except settlement) or on arrival at UK border. Have lived in London, and now in the North West of England for 25 years. Married with grown-up children. My hobbies are travel, culture, and I am a practising Christian.

I'm Kimi, female, Indian by birth and living in England for love. Recently married and been through the spousal visa process. This forum has been a God send and it is genuinely one of my ambitions in life now to be of some use to visitors/settlers by sharing from my own (limited) UK visa experiences. My dream is to basically be Joppa , so yes haha. Settled in the North East of England and loving the little community life. Busy looking for work and small community networking really helps !
Loving my Christmas tree, and cannot wait for Christmas day with my new family eeeeek

I'm Whatshouldwedo and have been on the forum for over a year now. I chose that name as I felt my husband may not get a spousal visa as we are pretty old and my first post was quite emotional. Joppa, Nyclon and others were so encouraging and helped us through the process. We have been back now for nearly seven months and are very happy with the move. It is nice to be closer to our children and other family members. Great to have our first English Christmas in many years! I hope everyone has a good Christmas, especially our moderators who work so hard to keep us well informed.

I'm bfdboy123 I'm fairly new to this forum though I have been reading up for a year now.
The stories I read on here are touching and the advice given by likes of Joppa are most valuable.
I hope to be a regular on here and hopefully one day be able to offer help to others.
wishing everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year

OrganisedChaos here and my username pretty much sums me up! I am British and my husband is Jamaican, married 4 years and he has been in the UK 13 months now. Been on this forum for over a year and the info shared is absolutely invaluable!!! Majority of applications are straightforward however i understand how daunting it can seem so its comforting to know you are not alone and that many others often have the same questions.
