She will need to prove that she has strong reason to go back to Pakistan. She will need evidence of either job ( which in her case not applicable as she is not employed ) she ownes her home etc mortgage payment. if she has doesn't have strong reasons to go back to Pakistan after her UK visit, I wouldn't inform you to apply for that visa.

as my situation turned out very unexpected i went to pakistan in this june for 3 weeks and planning to go again in november but i want my wife to visit me as i want to make the payslips strong i.e do more overtime. she will be turning 18 in 10 months so waiting that long depresses me and the new way of applying for A spouse visa in pakistan worries me as i dont think my wife or in laws can operate a computer to fill out the online application or print it. thank you for your reply.

is it not worth a try to apply for her visit visa

I can tell you know that there is a high chance of her visit visa application being rejected. Sorry to tell you but it is best if you save that money towards your spouse visa. I know it is not ideal but you can skype or facetime each other in the meantime.
Also remember that the English test taken before April 2015 is valid only upto November 2015. She might need to take another English test. Check this as well.

Ok this is getting confusing. If your wife is pregnant then you must declare it. Read through some of the thread post on this site to find some answers to your questions. It seems like you are jumping from one thing to another. Yes it is hard being apart and we all understand or are goibg through similar feelings. Persevere.

Considering your wife has no ties to Pakistan except for her family, I doubt she stands any chance of getting a visit visa. Another big reason for refusal can be her coming to the UK to be with her husband. The ECO will most probably think she won't return back and refuse her entry.

Even if she is or does get pregnant whilst in Pakistan, it'll have no impact on her chances of getting the visa.

If you do apply for a visit visa and it gets rejected it can affect future visa applications.

But why can't you wait 10 months?

Were you not living on your own before you got married?

Why don't you move in with family or ask someone to stay with you?

If you ho Pakistan in November, won't it affect your 6 months payslips?

But in asad's case the financial requirement will increase. His wife is non eu and child if born in Pakistan will require additional funds.

not sure but we have been trying for a baby
Dear god........ not even 18 until 10 months time, newly married, not eligible for a spouse visa yet to be with husband and already trying for a child

Whatever happened to being prepared and having your life in place before bringing another child into the world.

Hope this OP is a troll.........

(ready to be flamed....)

I am british so shouldnt my child get right of abode/certificate of entitlement? i read a few place where it is says i could apply for roa for the child. they do not require a visa as they are already britsh due to the father. so if the children do not need a visa i only need to mention my wife? if i mention the child is british does the financial requirement increase?

Crawford that isnt very nice what you said please keep negative comments to your self. i came online to find help not for negativity
