Hi Joppa,That's no trouble at all. Show both passports where needed. If you are extra cautious, slip in your marriage certificate for good measure. No need to transfer your visa to your new passport.
Since you don't have BRP, you don't need to worry about it. When you renew your visa, your BRP will be in the new name.
I have asked you a few questions before and wondered if you could help. I have the same situation as asked by the original poster, but wanted to know if advice had changed.
I need to renew my almost expired passport but want to do so in my married name now, but this would mean my Spousal Visa would be in my maiden name.
My issue is that my Visa is due for the new round of renewal FLR(M) - 5 year route) in February 2016 and the Croydon UKVI office have advised me that it would be up to me if i wasted to transfer it (TOC).
- I need to travel in October and a) don't want to run the risk of it not being back in time via postal application, b) don't want to have trouble getting back into the UK if my visa and passport are in different names (i would have just carried both if i wasn't changing my name)
Will it be a problem getting back in to the UK with my Visa in my old passport in my maiden name and a new passport in my married name?
I don't have a BRP as I am from NZ on a NZ passport, but I've had biometrics taken each visa application.
I've also seen on the site here some where if transferring the visa it has a new date on it, i would still have to apply at the end of the first visa period if i did have it transferred wouldn't i?
Also, have you ever heard of a 1st application spousal visa being valid for 2yrs 8 months (26/05/2013 - 26/02/2016), or should i be wary of that? (that is what is printed in my visa)
