    Just take it step by step and you will eventually come to the upload documents section when you arrive at the vfs appointment stage.
    I recommend you take your documents to your appointment and get them to upload it there as you are only allowed 1mb uploading remotely and God knows where they will go.

    Thanks for the help guys . The Sopra-Steria -UKVCAS website option is not for me, after completing the UK VISA with payments for VISA and UK health care for my lady, I was taken to the VFS-GLOBAL Manila website to continue the visa part to book BIO appointment for my lady in Manila and to upload documents. No contact are anything related to UKVCAS Website for uploading documents during my visa Adventure, so I couldn't even log in if I wanted to that site, no contact so no username or password.

    All immigration applications made from inside the UK are now handled through the UK Visa Citizenship Application Service (UKVCAS)...BUT......... I applied as I was applying as my lady in Manila to come to the UK.

    Options on the VFS GLOBAL WEBSITE - options to complete 1-6
    Option 4 to upload documents which is not showing with the orange arrow to let me upload.
    Could be an IT issue and might appear later, if not no worries, they really don't need half the evidence I have made the last 2 months. I will have to email the lady the documents to print out and she can bring them with her, once I pay for the premium service I wrote about appear.
    1. Location Details - you manila or cebu
    2. Customer Details - the person in The Philippines
    3. Services - did you pay for a service, like waiting room, scanning, keep passport after visit
    4. Documents - upload wifes documents and upload the husband documents, payslips, banks
    5. Appointment - pick a date and time
    6. Review and pay - pay the thief's
    of course the lady will have to still bring her documents and her passport to the appointment

    thats how i understand it---visa applications outside the UK are handled by VFS, whereas FLR and ILR---which are applied for in the UK--its sopra steria. unless its for a shenghen visa applied for within the uk--then its VFS .

    unless anyone has any better ideas.

    I don't have a link for any supporting docs, I just picked info up reading through many posts here. Everyone has different circumstances, i.e. I live with my elderly mother, I do own my own house which I let out, I am retired, soon to get works pension, so papers I submitted would not be needed by others.

    Hello! I'm back again with more questions. I'm sorry to disturb you. But me and my husband is confused with what to use for our submission. If its Visa4uk or access uk.? We are applying for our spouse visa. Hope you can clear it out. We bought some check list but we didn't expect it to be sent without the step by step guide. Please help us. THANK YOU! More power!

    Start the application it will take
    I started here.
    https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration
    My wife is in Manila, i am in the uk.
    So even though i did the online application in the uk our appointment is scheduled for vfs global manila.
    When there our documents will be uploaded so she is applying outside the uk.

    The good thing is that you can both see the application at the same time and work through it together

    Hello fethiye2003, well how did the big day go at the VFS Manila , like you had written, the checklist that they give you only has a few items on it, I have my list here and getting my documents ready for my lady, if you go by the Government list, they don't want WhatsAPP chats, message histories, emails, no flight details, no holiday photos. what they want is only, letter of employment, bank statements, your passport bio page, your lady FULL passport, language cert, P60, Signed work contract, a copy of your birth cert to go along with your bio page of passport for extra proof, TB CERT, and that's if.

    Did you bring lots of extra documents and did they take them or say sorry sir we don't need these.
