Hi all

It has been longtime since i used the site. I see people like victoria, susi and few more are still helping out asusual Nice to know.

Basically i am lost in this visa process again. Please help me out with some precise guidance.

I had looked in some posts & UKBA website.

I got the 2 year spouse visa in December 2010 and it expires by feb 2013.

1] The rules changed. Is that means i cant apply for ILR? or can i apply as i was given visa in old rules? if so what application form? (there might be same question i will definitely gonna do some research in this website still i asked i have few questions to add up)

2] I can apply from november 2012. But my wife is going to Africa for working for 2 months(doctor - charity work) & she will be back in Jan. 2 months away & i spent 45 days in total outside Uk without her & she spent 21 days outside UK without me. Will this be an issue?

3] It said from in UKBA from october 2013 people who apply for spouse/residence visa need KOL. If i can apply for ILR under old rules should i need it now?

4] If i cant apply for ILR should i apply for FLR? If so should i pass KOL and how long that will be valid?

5] I did my masters degree in top 5 university & i am working in an MNC company. should i still need to pass english test?

If i have missed any please add in your replies & if i have asked any stupid question please ignore. Please do answer and point out the right topic to look at if i havent looked in the meantime and point me in the right direction.

Hope to get some replies from everyone.

Thanks everyone in advance.

You need the KOL test. You don't need an extra English test. It will be easier to apply when your wife is in the UK - either before she goes or when she gets back. You don't need to meet new financial requirements.

Reading your post about applying for ILR made me realise just how quickly time flies! Good luck with the application Blacknura. :)
You'll be applying on form SET(M) and as Victoria's already confirmed, under the old rules.

Thanks victoria. So i can apply for the ILR visa & i dont need the ESOL but KOL. That sounds great. And the trips wont be a problem. And i also hope she works in London. I worked in oxford & now in reading. but we live in London. I travel everyday sometime every other day. It wouldnt be a problem i reckon?

yes susi its flying and i still cant understand the speed of time travel esp the last 11 months it was really rough still very fast. As far as i understand i am good to go for ILR if i have required documents. Is it possible for me to find any precise list.?

We still dont have a house but planning to get one in 2 years time as we want to decide where we are gonna settle. would this a problem? we share a house with a famil we have our own ensuite room & stuffs.

Thanks again

SET(M) gives a list of required documents but if you're unsure, it would be wise to have a legal advisor check your application/documents before you apply. Victoria offers this service.

Appointment slots are only released 42 days in advance, so availability for Feb 2013 won't show yet. The system is updated daily at midnight. Postal applications are taking up to 6 months or even more to process at present.

Yes you do.

Legal reps (such as Victoria) have separate booking slots and could submit the application in person for a fee. I believe they need 5 weeks notice though.
