UK - Further Leave to Remain FLR (M)


Recommended Posts

After gaining a Fiancee Visa in March and after 1 month of happy marriage  :GoldenSmile1: I have just received the first 33 months FLR (M) visa. Rather than do it through the post, and wait 6 - 12 months I made an appointment in Liverpools, UKBA Public Enquiry Office.which was very efficient, and recieved the visa in 2 hours, however they now issue biometric cards, similar to an ID card with photo and biometric information rather then the usual visa in passport. It has to be efficient it cost £500 more, £1200 by post £1700 fast track. But at least she can now work, rather then waiting 6-12 months.  Application very simple and a lot easier but, similar to marriage of fiancee visa.

One form for both wife and son, asks for his Birth Certificate only, then asks for financial details, wage slips P60, bank statements etc to prove the income threshold of £18,600 for her and the additional £2400 for her son. Also her divorce certificate, and mine and then our marriage certificate. I also supplied all the usual crap. photos of relationship, skype, telephone calls etc. but dont think they even looked at them, seems all the documents they wanted to  see were returned to me not in the folder we had given them, but separate.


Just remember do not do it my way, its a lot easier and cheaper to get married in Thailand, has you can see it cost me £1800 for a fiancee visa and a further £1700 for the FLR within the space of  5 months, twice the cost and twice the headache.

Good info Neil and this is why I advise clients to get married in LOS because you only pay the Embassy fee once but not everyone has the time to come and marry and also some like their family to be present.


But well done mate I am pleased for you,

Got married in December 2012 in Bk Having problems sorting minor issues in my application , it seems that despite paying 28K (UK) in tax the past two years I have never paid class 2 NIC , having to register and backpay the bastard just for the sake of the Visa ..... keep ya papers clean people and it makes the whole process a lot easier .
