    Does anyone know whether these new rules mean my girlfriend (getting married in December) would have to pass the B1 test and/or the LITUK test when applying for a spouse visa (and child settlement visa for her son)?

    Phil, she would need to pass the A1 English requirement (there is no change to this requirement) and you must meet the new financial test. She would need to pass the B1 requirements when she subsequently applied for ILR.

    Would Phil's wife be subject to five-years settlement prior to gaining citizenship, Tobias?

    The last applicants will be queuing up at VFS in Regents House in about 4 hours time and then doors will be firming shutting. It could be interesting, possible legal challenges ahead.

    5 year probation, sorry not I'm Tobias

    This link is actually more relevant as it contains the new Application Form ( although applications must be online in Thailand) and the newly required Appendices ( including the financial requirement form ) :

    ...or time-consuming and at more expense, Col.

    I'm sure in a few instances, time-consuming and further expense could root out a few more undesirables, but how many to the detriment of the majority?

    I have mixed feelings about the changes. Certainly an improvement in one respect. But the lack of apparent action against illegal aliens makes me slightly cynical.

    I wonder if it's been busy at VFS today or empty, probably empty! One of my friends who lives in my town wife applied last week, he scraped in before the new rules as he wouldn't have passed the finances.

    £18,600+, there other factors, you should read the guidelines fully, the PDF that I read was this one, soi-fam-mig, should be on the UKBA website somewhere.

    In essence, yes!

    The figure is actually £18,600, and applies equally to all parts of the UK.

    So if you are not earning much where you are living now.. seriously think about moving to an area where there is the potential for higher wage..

    If my understanding is right Mike increased rent from living in such area wouldnt be a consideration under the new rules?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I can forsee there being real injustice imposed upon those unfortunate enough to for example get made redundant within the 2 or 5 year period their spouses have to be here and cant find a decent job again.. when ILR time comes round and you cant meet the financial criteria anymore does your spouse effectively have to leave the country???.. the final kick in the nuts.

    How would it work if the applicant has a job, enough income and not needing the sponsors income?

    so if your missus can bring in £18,600 your laughing
