Settlement Visa uk for Thai wife

Recommended Posts

Emip

She was refused last year before we were married, for a visitor visa on pretty scurrilous reasons. She said she'd been at work the day before which she had but the day she called her so called boss who was closing the salon down, said she'd been closed for a week. No idea if if was mean spirited or she panicked because she wasn't paying tax, but it was refused. We're now married. They believed the ex boss who did indeed close the shop down. Because of that failure would you use an agent? or should I still be able to go it alone? There's no concerns over me only her previous refusal. She is not black listed or anything like that but it must be a black mark.

Just address the refusal in your new visa, as long as you meet the requirements for settlement it should make no difference. A refusal of a visitor visa will not be a black mark for settlement. They should have outlined the reason for refusal in the refusal letter so just address it.

If you have the time you can do it yourself but if not get Keyvisa to do it for you.  I was working when I got married and could only have three weeks in Thailand and this included when we were married.  Paid for the settlement visa for UK through agent and then it took seven weeks to process before my wife was able to fly to UK to join me.  If I had stayed the seven weeks to do it myself I would not have had a job to come back to in UK so it was very cost effective for me to employ an agent,.   The agent also helped to get her ID card, passport etc changed into her married name or it would have been impossible.  This was ten years ago and things may have changed since then.

You've got to remember that you are caught up in a stupid, politically motivated quota system that the UK gov., introduced to reduce immigation for non- EU people wishing to enter.  It's got little to do with personal circumstances. I would also suggest that you use an agent, if only to ensure that all the i's are dotted and  T's crossed in the paperwork so that they don't have a real excuse to refuse the visa.

Good luck mate.  It makes me streaming mad to see the UK Immigration Authorities stopping real familes from being togther, but then again, when was politics ever about making citizens lives happier. :wacko:

Find out tomorrow, and so nervous. I have a bad feeling for some reason, we would know today but she missed her flight to bangkok as her imbecile brother got lost on the way to the airport again. Currently she is on a 12 hours bus. Happened last time I was there and I had to tell them which way to go. I was expecting them to contact me or my boss, but they didn't do any of that which makes me think they've found a problem they can latch on to.
