    Apply anytime you want and put the date of travel down as the 14th September. The sooner, the better really.

    Yes, now but in other circumstances, you cannot apply more than 3 months before the date of travel.

    I would also add that by the time you get your paperwork in order and book an appointment which can be a pain and not always available when you want them, after submitting your paperwork at vfs global you could be waiting 3 weeks or more for a decision. When we applied for my gf's visit visa the paperwork checking etc was handled in Bangkok, but I think the paperwork now goes to Delhi, so god only knows how that will affect the timescales. But good luck anyway.

    Yep. You need to get your skates on and gather all of the information together. It took a couple of weeks just to do that when my GF applied. Parents full names and dates of birth. Name changes. Divorce papers if needed. Translations. If she is relying on a job as a reason to return she will need a letter from her employer etc etc.
