Hi all,

My Brazilian wife and I have just recently married and she is here on a fiance visa. We have a same day premium appointment booked for the flr-m application on 18th September.

When we had our notice appointment and submitted the marriage notice forms, they asked for my fiancees occupation and as she isn't employed they asked for her last occupation, which was a student prior to moving here. Thus, our marriage certificate has "student of business studies" under occupation for her.

We are concerned this will be a problem for our application as she is not a student now, nor is she otherwise employed.

Is this a problem or are we creating a problem for ourselves where one doesn't exist?

Many thanks for all your help.

Thanks hippoman.

We were worried they would look and see student, and think hey she's breaking the rules as she's not allowed to be a student on this visa!

Or was equally concerned it would be problematic that our marriage certificate technically contains incorrect information re:her occupation.

Occupation is usually what you state at the time of arranging your wedding, so it's not an official statement or anything like that.

If it helps, my husband was on a fiance visa and put down his occupation as 'graphic designer' even though he wasn't currently working and wasn't allowed to on the fiance visa.
As you've already been advised, it isn't a problem.
Just wanted to let you know I'd recently done the same with no issues.
