    Default Double settlement application (submitted at the same time)

    Friends,

    once again your valuable advice is required.

    I have friends who are recently married. He is British, she is Thai.

    She has a young son (about two years old) who is also Thai.

    They will be submitting spouse/settlement visa applications for both her and her son to come to the UK.

    Now, they have the applications ready, they are confident that they have all the necessary documentation.

    My question relates to the actual submission of the applications.

    How are the two submitted? Should they be in one folder? Some of the documentation will surely overlap and, therefore, be required for both applications.

    Seeing that original documents will be required, is it enough to refer to those documents in both applications?

    Will the applications be processed together?

    Most of the applications that I have read about here are for separate visas, in that the Thai mother has already settled in the UK before the application for her child(ren) has been submitted.


    Has anyone done it this way before? Both the mother and child applying together?

    Your help is, as always, much appreciated.

    Biff

    Yes, we did, but 11 years ago, in a very slim file! I'd have to check if I've still got it but there can't have been more than 15 pages, no photos etc, etc (for both mother and son combined). They were simpler times, way back when ...

    It is perfectly OK to submit two conjoined applications with one set of documents. Obviously two seperate applications and two fees must be paid. They will be processed together.

    Thanks for that

    I've advised my friend to cross reference the two applications in his covering letter (using the numbers generated by those applications) and refer to any single documents that are required in both applications in the same way.
