Hi everyone,

I'm just about to finalise everything for my wife's visa (US Citizen) immigrating to the UK.

Situation: I have been working at my current employer for over 3 years, currently earn a salary of £17,500 but with a guaranteed minimum annual bonus of £4800 paid every August. My p60 reflects that I surpass the minimum recruitment for £18,600, my monthly pay check is £1458 but August pay checks show the bonus and have a letter from my employer testifying to this annual bonus.

Do I need to apply under category A or B?

My understanding it would be B because I have a variable income and would need to show my annual income is more than £18,600 over a 12 mont period. I believe I would need to provide 12 months worth of pay slips, highlighting the August bonus, a p60 demonstrating my income is over £18,600 and a letter from my employer (I have done this already but just want to be 100% sure).

Is this correct??

I am also due a basic salary pay rise to £22,000 in September but need to apply for the VISA now for various reasons.

I'd really appreciate any advice!!

You apply under Cat B.

.... and unless you are applying for a credit card, you are applying for a visa (not a VISA)
