If your spouse earns £15k/annum, the shortfall is £3600.Does anyone know how to calculate the savings needed for applying for a UK spouse visa if I don't meet the financial requirements and earning £15000PA?
The amount you need in savings depends on how much you are short in earnings from employment. It is not a set amount.Brilliant explanation ALKB.
sorry for the incorrect bank account amount nanawaters.
When my husband applied it was GBP 19k...
good luck with everything
Either. If someone gives you money it must be a no strings attached gift that they do not expect to be returned. It's yours to with as you wish.As in loan from the person or loan from a bank?
The amount you are relying upon to meet the requirement must remain untouched. It's fine to add to it but only the amount that you have held for the full 6 months will be considered.Can I add more savings to the £25000 between the 6months?
Yes, but remember you'll need to meet the financial requirement again when you apply for FLR(M) in 30 months.And after the 6months can the money be used after the visa application has been submitted or approved?
Cannot be a loan from the bank nor loan from person.As in loan from the person or loan from a bank?
Can I add more savings to the £25000 between the 6months? And after the 6months can the money be used after the visa application has been submitted or approved?
Your sponsor needs 6 months of bank statements. The most recent can be no more than 28 days old at the time of online application.And how many months of bank statement does she need to support it with please?
You can use both yours and your sponsor's income and any other savings as required.Thank you very much for you help. You have been very helpful and one more question please.... After the first 2 and a half years if I've been working legally in the UK can my income and savings as well be summed up to reach the £18600 or if other savings required or is it still just the sponsor's income?
They cannot apply for a spouse visa while in the UK on a visitor visa.
