Wow, that's a big change. In any case, I hope they reply back you get what you want.I received notification that both our son and I have been granted the second stage spouse visa today.
But according to the letter it only gives rentry until 6th March next year! This is in bold at the top of the letter. "Notification of a Patrner (BC 100) visa. Multiple re-entries on this visa permitted until 06 March 2013"
Beneath is the template "About your visa" where it states the partner visa has a rentry period of 5 years. But this appears to be a template not specific to our application.
I've emailed AHC but don't expect a reply for a few days at least. But has anyone heard of this happening before? I'm baffled as to why we would only get a year long visa. Maybe something to do with the new RRV rules?
