Hi All,

Couple Q's about the actual application on Visa4UK.

Address - I moved home to my parents house in March, but previously was living at another address for just shy of two years. Do I put I've only been there for two months? It doesn't have any freetext to explain length of stay at the address.

I also went on holiday to the Cook Islands in 2007, but it does not appear to be a country listed in their drop down?


(argh, picture won't show on my side so i dont' know if it has inserted properly - this is the link to imgur http://imgur.com/73WL6DS)

This has immigration entry and departure stamped in my previous passport, so I don't want to not put it in but it doesn't physically exist in the application? :confused:

#1 Yes, two months. No need to explain.

Cook Islands may not have been included because the Cook Islands is in free association with NZ and Cook Island citizens are also New Zealand citizens.

Thanks Joppa, have added a note in the Additional Info tab about holiday to Cook Islands.

I have a couple more Q's if anyone would like to spare their opinion as I'm incredibly confused by the Income and Expenditure section portion of the application.

1. Monthly income from savings? I have NZD$6000 - what do I enter for monthly income? I think it gets like $20c a month in interest!
2. How much do you spend a month on living costs? - here in NZ or estimated for the UK?
3. What is the cost to you personally? - could there be a more vague question? Does that mean savings + application fee + other expenses incurred like birth certificate copies, or costs to move to UK? If the latter, assuming I don't put in plane tickets as that is a separate Q entirely?
4. Cost of accommodation - I thankfully have two potential places to live free of charge / very minimal costs e.g. contributions towards household expenses / babysitting in return for board. Would I put £0, or should I just guess based on average London house sharing prices?
5. Cost of your living expenses - err, what's the difference between living expenses and living costs?

I don't think I've felt dumber than when trying to decipher the above!
