    Topping up income with savings - Tunisia to UK 2.5 year Visa

This is just topping up my income to the threshold, so I'm not sure why it would need to be £60k but maybe I've...

    Getting married in Tunisia. HELP!!

    Got my birth certificate yesterday they told me it takes a week, but it's been dated the 5th so will be more than 21 days old when I get married on 31st May in Hammamet. Am I going to have to get another one to ensure it's less than 21 days old or is it more of a rough guideline? I don't want to...
