You only need a regular photocopy of the bio pages of your UK passport. Does the application ask for the sponsor's other passports?

You don't need photos of your accommodation. Are you living with your parents or renting a separate premise from them?

You don't need a timeline. You need 10-15 photos including the wedding. You don't need money remittance receipts.

You should include a sample itinerary for when she'd like to travel.

If you are living with your parents do they rent or own? If they own you need the deed or land registry, a council tax or other bill, a letter of permission from them and a property inspection is recommended. If they rent you need the tenancy agreement, letter from the landlord giving her permission to live there and a property inspection is recommended.

Print a sample itinerary from an airline booking website. Yes, just a screen shot or print out.

I don't think you have to include your daughter's birth certificate unless you are using it as evidence of your relationship.

Just a quickie. Regarding the itinerary (my fiancee is also in the Phils), I spoke to STA travel who emailed me a planned flight itinerary which included her name, flight dates and numbers ! Bingo ! It cost nothing as its only a planned itinerary.

All you have to do is go to an online booking site.

Hi.. thanks for this. And thanks Nyclon for the additional info. This list is really helpful as I will be applying this September to join my husband in the UK. I'm also from the Philippines. May I ask how your spouse visa application went? How long did you have to wait before the result arrived?

When your accommodation is shared with people other than your immediate family, such as parents, other siblings, lodgers, flatmates etc, you are strongly advised to get property inspection report, which independently verifies that the accommodation isn't overcrowded and is otherwise suitable for occupation.

What if your parent's own the house, but will be letting us live there while they live elsewhere? Would it just be a simple rental agreement?
