Hi I was just wondering my wife received her UK spouse visa in the Philippnes on 3rd December 2012 and when she went for her CFO sticker she was told that when she arrives in the UK she would have to apply for a biometric residency card she is a bit confused about this and I was just wondering how this would happen as she has already supplied her biometric information when she put the application in on October 10th 2012 any advice would be greatly received BTW she arrives in the UK on 15th December 2012 thank you...

CFO sticker is not relevant to UK immigration. Are you saying that she has no UK visa vignette pasted into her passport?

People who dish out CFO's have nothing to do with UK immigration. She has her visa. That's all she needs. Ignore them.

Sorry Victoria it was said by the UKBA website that from December 1st 2012 that a biometric residency card would be required for all visas issued after that date or words to that effect but because she already has the visa in her passport, thats why she was confused because she was told by the cfo office people that if she did not apply for one within 14 days of arriving in the UK she could be banned from staying here she was so uoset over that adding to the fact she is 32 weeks pregnant made her really stressed

BRPs are not given for Entry Clearance (Visa) applications. They are issued only inside the UK to those who make an application for leave to remain. In 2.5 years your wife will need to extend her leave; that's when she will be issued with BRP.

Sorry Gentleman of Leisure it was said on the UKBA website that from 1st December 2012 that visas issued after that time then you would have to apply for a BRP either by post or UKBA would contact her when she was here so is that what you are saying that this will not affect her if so thats good and yes sir she has UK visa vingette in her passport

Where are you getting this from? It's nonsense. She will not need to apply for a BRP until she comes to extend her visa, as GOL has said.

Again, the CFO people know nothing about UK immigration.
