This is our situation:
-We are apply for UK family settlement (form VAF4a online)
-My partner and children reside in the Solomon Islands.
-They are travelling to Fiji to give bio metrics.
-They don't have Tuberculosis test certificates (required) so are booked into an approved clinic in Fiji (there are no approved clinics in the Solomon Islands).
-The results of the TB test will take two to three weeks to come in.

This is our question:
If they give their bio metrics (at VFS Global) before the TB certificates are issued, does anyone know or have experience in what may be possible with regards to submitting the TB results at a later date? Is it possible to give the bio metrics first and then submit supporting documents by courier for example?

Unfortunately they cannot remain in Fiji to wait for the TB test results and then make the submission. Making a second trip to Fiji is not practical given the cost and disruption to studies and work.

Many thanks

I don't think you can. You must submit all your supporting documents at the time of your biometrics, and you cannot send in further evidence later. So you have no choice but to arrive early in Fiji to do your TB test and stay on for your biometrics, or make separate trips to do your TB test and then to attend a rearranged biometric appointment and submit your documents. I know it's costly and inconvenient, but if you want your visa, you have to follow the procedure laid down.
