    Well it's only been 11 days since my Fiance applied for her UK Fiance Visa and I'm already getting tired of waiting. I know it can be up to 60 days currently and so need to wait, and wait and wait. We miss each other like crazy and just want to be together. I've done a little research on here...

    My fiance and I have finally filled in the Appendix 2 (Financial Requirement) and just want some sort of check from you good forum people as to whether we've done it correct?

    Just need some clarification on this Appendix 2 form. I earn almost £10,000 more than the £18,600 required, as I'm employed in the UK and have been for over 4 years. In 3.3 Do I simply put income from Salaried Employment and then Complete part 3a? And then indicate category A? Nowhere in the...

    My Fiance is currently filling in her settlement visa online and it does not give the option "Fiance", in the dropdown list, it only gives "Marriage". Isn't a Marriage visa different to a Fiance Visa. This UKBA website is going to end up giving me a nervous breakdown with its inconsistencies...

    Sorry for all the questions. On the (Fiance Visa application) VAF4A form it asks if you have a home office reference number? What is that actually and should my fiance have one? She is not aware of one. And she currently has a UK Visitor Visa? ?
