    Its a reasonably straightforward spouse visa application, i did mine over 3 years ago and its a dim and distant memory not to mention the GOV rules and website change every 5 minutes!

    a spouse visa is ---settlement ; settlement / spouse.

    seems he needs to go back to step one--" know your visa type "

    After making your Online application and sending in your supporting docs to Sheffield, what is the timescale for returning your documents?
    Would that be done whilst the application is in progress or would we have to wait until a decision is made?
    Thanks:)

    I sent her son's Philippines docs in Monday...tracked next day delivery..got them back Saturday..with standard letter saying they had made copies...although I had included copies of everything.

    Thanks for the reply Bigmac. My wife got an email saying no prepaid envelope had been included for the return of the docs and would we send one or they would be unable to return them.
    I sent a prepaid A4 envelope with a note quoting the Ref number and asking them to return important docs only, not the 30 pages or so of pics and chat history. Royal Mail tracking confirms the envelope was received Monday 13 th Nov, hopefully we should get them back soon although I am paranoid about things going missing.
    Fingers crossed;)

    Yes..they want a pre paid return envelope..as if the visa fee isn't daylight robbery..they add insult to injury..and give a non-service.

    Hi everyone. I have applied for an online spouse visa and when I go to the Visa4UK website it shows the status as "complete" with next action "print application". My wife has an appointment in Cebu VFS booked but I am confused by one of the sections that has not turned green (as the others have that were completed) titled Register at Commercial Partner. There was a post earlier on this but I did not understand. When I click on this it takes me to VFS Global but I have already made an appointment for her. Can I just ignore the box called Register at Commercial Partner? I have an email confirming appointment as well from Visa4UK. Thanks

    i am still waiting for a couple of bits of information before I send to Sheffield the papers I have. Is there a time limit for sending the papers after the online application is done. My wife has not handed in the paper form yet. All I can find is that the papers should be submitted as soon as possible after the online application
