Hi all :)!

My husband finally got his visa to join me & our little boy :)!

He got his decision in 5 weeks so wasn't too bad but it was a long 5 weeks lol!

Just a quick question, when your husbands got to the UK what were they asked at passport control or was it pretty simple?

Thank you!!

Congratulations.

He will be asked address who he is staying with and some logistical details.

Sometimes its good to go together but at the end of the day as long as he knows his stuff about you he should be fine.

Congratulations.

Me and my husband arrived in two different airports on the same day. But I was there just as he landed.He called me, because he did not know the address by heart.

In the immigration main questions was: the address you will be living?
And other small silly questions:when/where did you meet?mother's/father's names?

He spent around 10min and they let him go.

Hey sami
Congratulations: ) could you please tell me if you send your English certificate together with the papers or just the results ? As my hubby passed his English test but still waiting for the certificate, how long does it take after obtaining the results? This waiting process for one paper is very annoying, Thanks a lot in advanced
Enjoy your time with hubby: )

I would think as long as you can show your accounts of what you're earning should be the same as wage slips.

Same rules apply. I'm self employed, so you need to show that you earn £18,600 a year, bank statements, I also got my accountant to write a letter confirming my business and outgoings/income.

Hi my husband came in January 2014. At passport control in Manchester he was asked my date of birth and if he would be working. The woman was pleasant as when he was asked my date of birth he gave our wedding date like lol

Hi

I'm self employed too

We applied in September 2013

Basically you have to show you earn a minimum of £18,600 and this has to be backed up by 6 months bank statements and your tax and ni sent from hmrc. Also if you have your letter showing your unique tax reference when you registered your business. Also your accounts from your accountant but he has to be a member of an accepted registered body
