Applying for fiancé visa very soon this month. I'm a bit worried about some documents not being certified. 1. Sponsor passport - all pages are scanned and my GF in Philippines prints them out. How would you certify a passport if I have no need to make a copy here in UK? Is it really important to get the passport certified? 2. Bank statements - my banks don't stamp or certify the statements, they say the post statements are legit enough. But I am scanning my statements and my GF prints them out, is that still okay? One issue I have is my latest HSBC statement is not out yet and they can't do one early, so I had to print it online banking which looks different to post statements. I doubt HSBC will stamp or certify the online statement so what can I do? Does UKBA even know about these rules that some banks don't stamp or certify any more? We will probably use the scanning service in VFS, how would they know if the document you scan to their system is original or scanned printed copy? I just don't want to fail application because of not getting stamps.
