    I would not buy tickets until you know the visa has been granted testa and think the UKBA website says the same.

    Good luck.

    Even if a 2 year visitor visa is granted, your wife will need to leave the UK within 6 months of her arrival. When she arrives the IO at the arrival airport may wish to see her onward ticket to be satisfied your wife leave the UK within that 6 month period.

    Default yer

    We will need to get back to see our children around April , so that should be OK .

    No visa available seemed to fit our circumstance's but I guess that would be too easy...

    was hoping to get a cheaper UK - bkk return flight and work it some how so

    that we could save a little cash lol

    regards to all ,

    We didn't get the two year visa they issued six month only , and kept the cash of course

    not sure exactly why , but the UKBA lady had long chat with my wife, She got Her confused as what dates were

    on the application and what type of visa it was , she had a copy of the application ,

    but wifey's written English is not great , so that got us ,

    so there you go.. nice one UKBA

    we have a visa for Christmas at least

    and I get to go out April

    I think a single flight would cost as much as a return flight...

    To be clear they refused us the 2 year one , and granted a 6 month one ( no reason given)

    so we paid £270 for a £78 visa

    now return flight's come at around a grand ,

    If I book 2 separately I can get for £855 ,ie one from bkk and one from lhr

    will let folks know if it works out

    Default 2 year visit visa question - single flights

    Provided she has an onward ticket it doesn't matter that they are separate bookings (i.e. two singles). Just ensure she has her ticket back available to show the Immigration Officer on arrival in the UK, should it be requested.

    Hi, that's the first time i've heard of anything like a '2 year visit/or visa' - they have always been maximum 6 months as far as i know. So in that sense you weren't duped by anyone in authority ?

    We had 2 10 year visit visas the first had to be renewed after 3 years as the passport was stolen, the second was changed as we decided to relocate to the UK 18 months into that visa.

    We had a 5 year visa before those and a 2 year visa before that

    Max stay on these is 6 months and they get stroppy if you look like you are settling using these visas.

    Wow i thought they were like rocking horse s*** to get hold of and not really wort applying for , maybe i might go for a longer one next for Pan as her main school hols are April and Oct so just outside the 6months if you factor in the application time, then she could come over twice in a year if neccisary. Plus no more complaints about lugging a 3kg visa file to vfs and back
