What's the reason for submitting both the original documentation and also their photocopiess, as I don't see this on the uk immigration list?

Sorry I got it. You already mentioned this in your first paragraph. Thanks.

Default Original Documents

hi Joppa,

i just want to confirm, as my fiance is in the UK and i am in South Africa, she will need to courier her supporting documents to me, if I understand correctly does she need to send me all the originals (like her audited accounts, council tax bills ) or can she scan it and email it to me?

a list of docs that needs to be originals and a list of docs that may be scanned will be greatly appreciated.

best regards

Yes, she needs to send you originals. There is nothing that can be scanned.

Either. Best to clip to your bank statement and payslips.

I thought the reason you gave them prepaid return was to get all of your documents back. There were to be no copies of docs, only originals. I only sent originals. Will I not get them back? Birth certificates, pay stubs, etc.

Possibly, as they have the right to retain them. Practice is changing for some countries, where they only accept originals. This happens where the visa application centre is responsible for sending the documents to the decision making centre, and they must have worked out that the cost of photocopying comes to less than extra carriage needed for copies.

We had a premium appointment in Sheffield for my FLRM yesterday. We provided photocopies of the entire packet (excepting photos and passports) which they kept. To my surprise they also kept some originals, specifically supplementary relationship documents: list of emails and chart logs, letters from friends.

Also, just because we're curious, we found a post-it on one of the correspondence letters used. We think it says 'cchab used'. Anyone have a clue what it stands for? 😀

Hello, I'd just like to clarify the information I've read in this thread. We are planning to submit two complete bundles of all our forms and supporting documents within our application. One of those bundles will include the official documents, and the other will include copies.

Does each bundle need to include the VAF4A form and Appendix 2? And should I label each bundle according to what it is? Meaning, should I specify which one has the official documents and which one has the copies?

Thanks!!
