You need to be married to obtain a settlement visa, unless you're going down the 'fiancé' route, which ultimately you'd need to be married anyway to then apply for a settlement.

As same sex marriages aren't recognised in Tunisia, I'm assuming that you're not?

they are getting tougher on everything now making it almost impossible to get visa of any kind

People need to keep themselves updated frequently via the UKBA website. Because yes, there are seemingly constant changes..:rolleyes:

Hi this maybe a silly question but i am finding it difficult to find the correct application for my husband to come and settle here, When go to the settlement visa it says u can apply for that after being here for 5 years. Confused much. Then when i go to find a visa and fill it out it says Sorry, the page you are looking for could not be found. Please if someone could help or send me a link would be much appreciated x

There are various appendixs now, dependent on the circumstances or type of visa, ie dependent, spouse etc. so before filling in application VAF4A, you need to check which appendix is applicable to your situation.

And yes payment is now made online as opposed to potentially getting mugged outside the embassy with a wad of cash in your pocket...:confused:

I think i see a post before saying you was getting carers so i think the appendix are the right ones according to the website however when u go to apply online find forms etc it says page cannot be found so that baffles me a little.

If you're going through the visa4u register you should be able to. I've spoken to someone else who's doing it right and they've been able to.

Yeah probably the girl i no is on the first application but she cant move forward and book appointment until her husband opens a bank account to pay for it, then there after it will probably look a lot clearer as of where she does the other online applications.

I would advise that before filling out the application that you familiarise yourself with all of the required paperwork. Dig around and read. I've been reading about it for a long time and it is only just now I am 100% certain of what I need. The UKBA do not write things in simple English and they do not lay it all out for you. You have to dig. The appendix are to the right of the visa section on the UKBA website. It will have listed various ones for your needs. I.e dependant children, spouse etc. Read them and make sure you find the right ones.

The settlement comes initially as a 33 month visa. Then you re-apply for further leave to remain which is another 30 months before you can then apply for the ILR. So...your guess is as good as mine on that. I don't think indefinitely or forever would be a good idea. I'd imagine saying 63 months as they then know that you are aware of the cut off period for the visa.
