applying for spouse visa (UNDER THE NEW RULES)

    I am about to submit my application online (Visa4UK) webiste. My husband is in the UK with all the documents and will go to one of the new centres to get the documents scanned.

    There is confusion on how my husband presents these documents some people say use bar codes to seperate all the sections and others say create a content page to seperate all the sections.

    is there anybody who has submitted their documents in the UK under the new rules? if so can you tell me which is the correct way.

    thanks.

    I took my documents to VFS in London last week, the helpful girl there seperated my papers and put them into separate piles each with its own bar code

    Hello Caricel, I am in the same position as you, But I'm the husband in UK and Wife in Philippines and I am working on getting all the documents really, Good that you started this topic and hope others can help from VISA applied maybe 2019, because of the NEW rules that apply. Hello Markallanwainwright good to hear you have did it with the NEW rules, be good to hear step by step how you worked and completed the VISA. Only if you have he free time, I know a lot to ask. It could help others who get stressed a bit about the NEW RULES and completing the spouse visa.

    I did mine with great help from member Mattecube on this site. As I'm still waiting to get word if visa is granted what I'm writing is a not a definite way to do it. Like you I'm in UK and wife in Philippines. How I did it......First got the online application with Visa4UK and started completing that. Booked English test for wife and X-Ray soon after. Meanwhile I download and completed forms VAF4A, VAF4A appendix 2 and SU07/12. Remember although I completed all these forms they were done as if my wife was supplying all the details, having said that I think SU07/12 was done as me, the sponsor. I booked appointment for wife at VFS in Manila where she took her passport (they keep hold of it) other ID card, English test results and X-Ray results and copies of them. Unfortunately the girl at VFS Manila didn't have a clue about me submitting docs in London and insisted my wife didn't have enough paperwork for visa. Anyway, next day I took all my papers into VFS London, they were scanned and sent away (I keep hold of passport) and mated up with wife's papers. Now just a case of waiting. I do believe that somewhere on this site is a comprehensive list of papers you need to submit. Good luck.

    Great post and thanks for the mention this pretty much covers it @Kevintown I suggest you have 2 lists one what your wife must take document wise and do at the biometrics centre and one list what you must take and do its pretty straightforward if you keep checking your progress! Honest
    As @markallanwainwright says its a fairly new system so be prepared as he did to meet ignorence of the system at either point here or there!
    Also there are a number of scanning stations in the UK where do you live? together we will find the nearest one to you!

    Any questions ask away

    I am feeling a lot better now, learning about the new systems in place for scanning Documents when in the UK, Instead of posting my documents to the Philippines with DHL post or Royal Mail, which I was going to do. I don't live in the Mainland I live in Belfast now, but could be happy to travel to a visa scanning center in Scotland, England or Wales if none in Northern Ireland. Do you have to book an appointment for the UK VFS London and other offices in the UK, to bring your documents too or at end of Spouse Visa online, you get to pick a time and date from a menu, like you would do for the lady in the Philippines to visit the Manila or Cebu office or do I walk in with your documents and print out of visa and receipt codes and talk with them and they do the rest and then ask for a payment. Thank you people here for the support, it very helpful and good to read about others.

    I found it impossible to make a booking at VFS London, only walk in service available. Basically I handed all my papers to the helpful girl and she sorted them out into their separate folders. I was in, done and out in less than 90min. The staff there don't really tell you what you need or should have but the bar coded heading papers tell you what should be in each pile of papers.
