Papers (rental agreement, mortgage etc) that show you are capable of accommodating GF (to support the

pics you've already prepared. Simple letter from your employer confirming your job/salary. Do a bit of prep about health insurance to cover GF while she's in the UK.

 

Good luck - let us know how you get on.

Make sure she knows and understands what you are planning on doing while you are there. I think one of the things they want to know is that she is a genuine tourist (or perhaps visiting friends). If she does not have any specific plans to do either they may have doubts. She should also know where she will be staying and the names of people you intend to take her to meet.

Self-employed - bank statements should cover that.

 

Interview over, your GF will probably receive a telephone call/e-mail advising her that her passport is ready to collect/application denied. [Caveat: been almost a year since I helped steer someone through the process - maybe a BM with more recent experience can chip in].

 

Good luck!

Once you have submitted application form, they are not guaranteed to interview them but obviously they are with your TG,

sometimes they just phone them and ask a few questions on the phone.

After the interview, they will send a message to HER to come and collect her passport from VAC but they will not say whether she has it or not, this can take weeks sometimes, so dont book any flights.

When she collects her passport it will either have a visa stamp inside or a refusal letter stating what reasons why she has been refused. Collection of passports is usually in the late afternoon from the VAC.

Make sure she knows...

 

How many bedrooms/ kitchen/ bathrooms you have.

Where in UK you stay/ will be staying and where is it near (nr Manchester London, Preston etc etc]

How many children you have and how old.

You been married before and what happened to the marriage ( tell her she dont know, you wont talk about this)

Who she be meeting when she gets there.....your parents brothers etc

WHAT SHE WILL BE DOING.....

and most importantly

They might ask her why she will return to Thailand. This is very hard but can be be shown by having property and ties to her family/children. She has to tell THEM that she wants to return and that she has commitments to her family.

Hope some of this helps.

 

Good Luck!!

No interview, VFS staff only check online application form is completed and signed, foto is correct, all additional papers/information are submitted, take bio-metrics (fingerprints etc)

 

lf application has been completed correctly uk border agency should be able to make a decision and would not need any other information from your girlfriend, she will probably not hear from them until time to collect passport/original documents.

 

VFS have form you can fill in to receive sms and email, at small cost, from them when the application has been returned to the from UK embassy, you can also check position of application online from ref. no. given by VFS.

 

you can get all info on VFS Global or UK Border Agency websites.

 

Good luck.

I just want to point out that this was not an 'interview' at the embassy. All it was is an appointment to submit the application. The people spoken to were not embassy staff but employees of the company that collects applications on behalf of the embassy. They do not have any part in the approval process.

You will not know until she collects the passport.

as from this month they have changed the payment method to master/visa card only, very few thai females have these cards,

 

'belhop', did they let you pay your TGF's application with your UK bank card? answer will be appreciated or if any one knows as l will be doing 3rd application soon and cant find anything on VFS or UK websites apart from saying payment method has changed, thanks.

Many have Visa or Mastercard debit cars so these would work.

100% correct.

What OP needs here now are posts from recent applicants indicating embassy

processing times once applications have been lodged with VFS: weeks or months?

Just lifted this from there web site. Dont know the reality of it though....

 

Visiting the UK

This section describes the different types of visitor visa, and helps you to choose the right one for your circumstances. It also explains what you are allowed to do while you are in the UK as a visitor.

If you come to the UK as a visitor, you are normally allowed to stay here for a maximum of 6 months. If you want to stay here for longer than 6 months, read the other categories in the Visas and immigration section to see if you qualify for another type of visa.

See the Travel and customs section for general information about visas and travelling to the UK.

If someone in the UK will 'sponsor' you during your visit, they should read the Sponsoring a visitor pages.

Our service standards for visitor visas are that we will decide 90 per cent of applications within 3 weeks, 98 per cent within 6 weeks and 100 per cent within 12 weeks.
