Hi, I want to arrange a spouse visa for my husband in the coming months, I meet the salary threshold however my contract is fixed term for 6 months, will this cause an issue? Thanks for any input.

I'm in a similar situation with the income for my unmarried partner visa coming from a fixed term contract. The guidelines say "Employment can be permanent, a fixed-term contract or with an agency" (http://www.ukba.home...pdf?view=Binary) but I am still slightly worried as well that they may not be happy that there is no evidence of the income continuing beyond a couple of months.

Has anyone had any experience with this?

Relax ! They look at the previous six months rather than the forthcoming six months (or future in general). Anyone can lose their job at any time so future job security has no relevance and can't be included in the criteria.

Although not a points-based application, the new rules are similar to the PBS because the income and/or savings thresholds are now absolutes that disregard outgoing expenditure, rather than the somewhat arbitrary considerations of the past.

A zero hours contract could be a problem.
