The long wait for a settlement visa for the UK


Recommended Posts

Well I applied for my wives settlement visa on the 2nd April just before the price increase :) and there new silly rules on, on-line application and making an appointment to hand in the evidence, I know it will take about 3 months to process but looking at there website they seem to be getting worse over the last 6 months, month by month, it seems by looking at various forums that they have just starting to catch up on Feb's applications at this rate it will be July/Aug before I hear anything (close to 4 months). :GoldenSmile1: What is the point of putting down your attended date to travel to the UK if the visa will not be ready in time, just another silly question you need to fill in the form & to think I paid over 26,000 baht for the service is a joke, I feel sorry for the guys who will have to pay over 30,000 baht for this now

I have applications pending from the 9 march i fully expect them returned in May.


You are lucky i have to deal with these idiots at UK/Vac daily here is some interesting problems.


Clients coming out with a file full of photographs of the couple together, having been advised they are not required ?


Also a client applying for a fiancee visa 2 months before she is 21 years old, i had to inform them that the ECO officer can use his discretion in this matter and let the applicant apply 2 months before she is 21. The ECO will date the visa valid from her 21 st birthday, i have given them 5 months notice that i intend to exercise this rule. I actually sent them the rules so they could inform their staff on the front desk i would think we will still have future problems when we submit the application.


13.21 - Age requirements for spouses and civil partners (Rules Paragraph 277)

The Immigration Rules do not allow any person to be granted an entry clearance as the spouse or civil partner of another if the applicant will be aged under 21 on the date of arrival in the United Kingdom. Any entry clearance application from a spouse/civil partner (i.e. a married person or a person in a civil partnership who would be under the age of 21 years when entering the UK) should, therefore, be refused. An applicant who is over the age of 21 but married to/in a civil partnership with a person who is under 21 should likewise be refused entry clearance.


In cases where the applicant is within a couple of months of his or her twenty first birthday, and the other party is 21 or over, you have discretion to issue entry clearance but it can only be valid from when the person under 21 has reached his/her twenty first birthday



They have caused my company no end of problems i have advised them i will be entering the office as the legal representative of my clients in future. The sooner i am out in Thailand the better as far as i am concerned.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
