Hi all,

I have a bit of a panicked query about the 28-day rule, and hoping to get a response here rather than starting a new thread.

I submitted my online application and paid yesterday so: 20/06/19

My husband's last payslip is dated 24/05/19 so my application was submitted on day 28. I just realised this, ideally I would have liked a bit of buffer so there is no ambiguity, am I still ok?

Also, we got bank statements detailling pay that went into his account. Other than transaction dates, the only date that is on this document is the date they were printed in branch (20/06/19 - accompanied by branch stamp with sort code), so there is no way to tell if the most recent statement was issued within the 28 day limit. Can I still use these?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi
I have a question with regards to payslip. I am due to apply for my ILR on the 29th Oct, I normally get pay end of the month so i will be using 6month payslip from April - Sep. My question is that, counting from the last date i was paid my last payslip is more than 28days from my application date. please is that a problem?

Yes. It’s a problem. As stated in the 1st post, your most recent payslip can be no more than 28 days old at the time of application.

Thank you for your response. I can get an e-payslip which shows my employers name on it. Please will that be acceptable ?

Hello everyone, I am new here today.

I start gathering bank statements for my wife's spouse visa. I will be using 3 bank accounts to prove my finance. The bank statement issue dates of Bank A, B and C are on 2nd, 12th and 16th each month respectively. I know it is safe to make application between 18th and 30th which comply with the 28-day rule. I am curious because I have to show I have enough funding for at least 6 months prior to the application, it won't be able to cover all 180 days (6 months) with just 6 bank statements because there is a 14 days gap between Bank A and C. So do I just need 6 months bank statements?

Also do I have to add up the daily balance of every accounts to make sure I have more than £62500 every single day?

Thank you in advance.

could you not go to bank A & B on 16th and ask for printed statement up to 16th
(Bank validated stamp) & send all on 18th?
Yes....it is important that your balance does not drop below the required level at any point in the six months.

Good luck

Does this post apply to the new system or not, can some of the moderators reply? You are saying that for premium service the date the application is date of the appointment but does this apply to this new super premium service of £800? It's confusing.

My last payslip was issued 20th Dec and I plan to submit application tomorrow or Thursday since my visa is expiring on 23rd Jan. So from the online submission I should be ok but assuming that appointment will be at some point in the future and after 16th (which is the 28th day from my last payslip) am I still good? I will be using super premium.

If someone can clarify please, thank you!

Hi,

Could anyone help advise, a bit confused about bank statement dates?

My wife's current FLR (M) expired on 16th April.
We submitted and paid for her application on 4th April.
My most recent payslip we are using is dated 31st March (which is fine, less than 28 days).

However the issue is bank statements showing my salary - these normally come right at the start of the month, however that particular month it was dated 5th April - one day after our application.
Can we use this in our application even though it's dated a day after we applied? As far as I understand all documents should be dated before the date of application? If not then we seem to be stuck and I can't see how we can meet the criteria??

Thanks,

Stuart

From reading through dozens of posts it seems that it's OK to do this, as long as I've been paid within the last 28 days then the bank statement (and payslip) can be more recent than the application date.

Hi,

Still a little lost, my latest payslip is 2 weeks before the application date and my bank statement shows the same amonunt going into my account on the same day BUT the bank statement itself arrived after my application date as it arrives 3 weeks after payslip.

Is it the date of payment on the bank statement that needs to be within 28 days or the delivery date of the bank statement itself?

Hi everyone,

So I thought I would be submitting my application this week but I need to wait until tuesday next week because I have to verify something.

Question is:

If my last payslip is showing 27 Nov 2020, would it be okay to submit my online application on the 22nd Dec 2020 (next tuesday)?

Thank you for all the support & love 🙏🌸

Might sound silly but I have only paid IHS so far so is it when you do the other fee. I just kept it on hold for few more days as waiting for money to land into my account.
Please read the 1st post in the sticky.
