    Anyone adviuse what the waiting times are for an apointment?

    My wife allready has ilr, and we want to bring her daughter over in feb/march.

    Ive heard if all paperwork is in order, they do it on the day you apply, is this correct?

    And if not how long is the current waiting time from submitting the forms and paying the fee?

    Cheers.

    Carlo,

    No appointment is required. Just turn up during the window (0830 - 1500 Mon-Fri). No stupid queues to contend with.

    For no interview applications, it can be as short as a 2 day turnaround. Applications are still decided on Wireless Road so a same-day turnaround is extremely unlikely.

    In Nov the waiting time for interview was 4-6 weeks. For the current wait, perhaps give VFS a call on +66 (0) 22541098 / 99

    Whether or not an interview is required depends on your circumstances and evidence supplied.

    Good luck and hope your daughter can join you both in the UK soon.

    Hi Carlo,

    Ooy had to wait from the end of August to the start of October 2006 for her interview - 6 weeks.

    Next week will see her 3rd full month in the UK!

    Good luck!

    I don't think that was the question Carlo was asking caller. He wants to know how soon he can get a settlement visa for his step daughter given that her mother already has ILR and is settled here.

    Is the process less onerous than when applying for a spouse visa?

    A little, but we have yet to hand over the paperwork.

    I know this must be obvious, but under sponsors name when filling the application form it will be my missus, wont it, and not me?

    She has ILR.

    for us i put my name down as the sponsor as i was able to show my ability to sponsor the child (bank statements & payslips) my wife had no proof like this.

    I have heard conflicting reports about this, i have been told it has to be my wifes name, as officially the child is nothing to do with me.

    Anyone else comment please?

    I sponsored my stepson, but obviously all of the proof of contact and meaningful relationship related entirely to my wife.

    who told you this?

    when you say officially, what do you mean?

    as officially the child is nothing to do with me.
    the child is going to come to the UK to live with you and your wife. if this is the case then the child will have everything to do with you as far as the UK government is concerned.

    for example when the child arrives in the UK you can apply for child benefit and tax credits. on the application form your family details will be put down.
    these funds can be paid into your personal bank account.
