Hi

I applied for a spouse visa and received a letter saying my application has been put on hold for refusal for failing to meet evidential requirements under Appendix FM-SE. The letter says "You have failed to provide bank statements so that your wage slips can be corroborated".

It also states that at mean time I can submit further information and decision will be taken and be granted if they meet these requirements.

Question:

What do I do now? Do I submit the bank statements direct to the address on the letter? Is there any other issue to be addressed? How long will this take as I have an appointment with Registrar to register for marriage on 12 Dec. I getting married by the end of Dec.

Note: I do have all the bank statements and they do match the payslips I sent.

Cheers

Why didn't you send the bank statements? Then your visa would have been issued by now.
Yes, send the bank statements to the address given (but take a copy first). If they say the missing statement was the only reason for being put on hold, you should get your visa. I don't know how long they take to process it - it depends on the visa office and how efficient they are. If your visa isn't through in time, you have to rearrange your wedding.

Thanks Joppa,

I guess I overlooked their main page on the Website, it wasn't clear that I had to refer to that Appendix.

This the exactly wording of the first paragraph which gives out the reasons for their decision;

" Your application for leave to remain under paragraph E-LRTP of Appendix FM to the Immigration Rules has been considered. Your application falls to be refused solely because you do not meet the related evidential requirements under Appendix FM-SE. You have failed to provide bank statements so that your wage slips can be corroborated."

Do you see anything else which needed clarification from my end?

Many thanks

No. Looks like the missing statement was the only ground for being put on hold.

Children which have British citizenship do not have to be included on the application, therefore the amount o £18 600 for the spouse is enough...
