It helps, though not essential, if your wife can accompany you through UK border in the same non-EU line (if they ask, just say you are a couple). They may ask a few questions about housing and finance, so a rental contract and bank statement should be carried. They may remind you about the conditions of the visa, such as no recourse to public funds and period of validity.So I've just received my spousal settlement visa from the UKBA, all good news.
What happens upon my entry to the UK? Does my wife (UK Citizen) need to be with me and pass through the Non-EU passport control checkpoint with me? Or can she head to the UK citizen lines at passport control?
Any specific paperwork I should have with me and accessible, even though I've already been issued the visa? Basically trying to have my first entry on the settlement visa be as simple as possible!
