Main reason being the need to collect the biometric card within thirty days of arrival date .
Started the on line visa through marriage two year application January 15 th . At that time we put April 17 th as the arrival UK date .
This now has changed to towards the end of July .
Currently the application is at the second stage of the process and we have not made an appointment nor made any payments .
For some reason I thought I’d read the application gets removed after three months if it isn’t processed .
Is there any way to alter the arrival date , or to withdraw the application and resubmit with the later arrival date ? Or does the application get automatically withdrawn after three months in which case we just resubmit in May ?
