    once we received the email it says to update the application with the ihs number but the application was already finished, sorry if I’m coming off a bit stupid, don’t want any mistakes.[/QUOTE]

    As you rightly state, by the time you get to paying the IHS fees you've already finished the application and printed it off so you cant go back to add the number.... my impression is that the auto-reply emails we get and the website information hasn't been updated in quite a while, or if they have they've done a very poor job at it... I printed off the payment confirmation email (with the IHS ref number on it) and included it with my evidence documents.

    Nice one dicky, that’s what we wanted to know.. we were going to do that anyway as we couldn’t figure out if we were missing something obvious or not!

    I have another question lol, the marriage certificates, did you get two copy’s translated as they are both identical, she has told me she only had the one copy translated as she said they are both the same. Unsure if I need both now?!

    They are identical. The wording, everything. You only need one.
    I have a question too, if you don't mind?
    The Marriage certificate (with the flowery border) is the Kor Ror 3. Did you also need to include the Kor Ror 2 as well? Also, I have my copy of the Kor Ror 3 but the wife has the translation. Did you need the original translation document, or would a printed copy of it be ok?

    Yep. both identical. We only had the wife's translated.
    We submitted the original Kor 2 and Kor 3 plus translated copies with instruction to send them back with other original docs in the registered envelop provided. Also provided photocopies for their records. Not sure if originals were needed (I read elsewhere that they weren't) but I wasn't taking any chances given how much all this is costing...

    I supplied both original and copies of the marriage certificates. Everything was returned to me, no problems. When I received everything back, there was a pile of the papers they had copied on top of the folder. The rest of the docs didn’t even look like they’d been touched.

    glad to see I'm not the only one finding the information jumbled and ambiguous.... good thread though, answered a lot of questions.

    I'm assuming is there is a document missing/wrong, it would result in a request for the correct document rather than a straight refusal?

    Have any of you opted for the express option, seems expensive to me but I am taking it so my wife avoids 3 UK winters back to back.

    Got all my documents back this morning (all taken out of their plastic sleeves so all assumingly copied) with a letter stating that if they require anything further they will contact us via the email address we provided.

    Went via the standard route so expecting a long wait. will let you know when I get a decision.

    Did anyone submit an application WITHOUT the Kor Ror 2? It seems to me that it's a document that UK officials will not be familiar with and that the Kor Ror 3 (with translation) is enough to show evidence of a legal marriage.

    Sorry I’ve not been active, I’m working 12 hour continental shifts so it’s not always possible to find time, I appreciate everybody’s feedback and help in here, I realise some of the questions seem anal but with all the effort and money that’s been spent to bring my wife here naturally I would like it to pass through first time without any complications!

    Dicky, I’m curious on some things.. did you provide a floor plan of the house?

    My work contract is from when I joined the company in 1998, what did you provide? Something recent? Is that sufficient? I got a letter from my work yesterday confirming my employment with the company, salary etc.

    A question for you both, dicky, melteddrummer... did you provide copy’s of all the documents?? Or just provide everything in a single folder? Seems a bit excessive to me but if I need to do I need to do it I guess.

    Darren, we just used the standard service, there are tonnes of appointments available when we looked, we used express on the visit visa but I’ve spent a fortune going through this process and I don’t think it would be any quicker in general to get an answer about the visa.

    Hi biff, I’m not sure what a kor ror 2 is lol actually just now speaking to the missus on the phone and she has told me what it is and she believes it’s needed but then we don’t know either for sure, the way we see it is it’s better to give it if you have it at hand then to not supply and they then they question where it is.

    My missus just recently had her English test at B1 level and to her surprise she was the only one there taking it at that level so they had to go and get somebody that works there to be her partner lmao, she said her English was better than her partners and it went smoothly so pretty confident about everything in general now, just don’t want to miss any documents or forget anything stupid hence the questions.

    Thanks again everyone!

    Hi mate, I just sent a single folder, no copies. When everything was returned to me, there was just a few things removed from different sections of the folder, which had been copied.

    Hi Nogoodmrfish
    Still had the original marketing brochure for the house so just sent that... had a floorplan and photos of when it was clean.

    I provided two recent letters from my employer, one stating my employment status, salary and how much I earned, and the seconded authenticating that my payslips were real as everything is electronic.

    Like Melteddrummer I sent a single folder. Mine was separated by sections (sponsors doc, financial evid, relationship etc ) but I included a section with originals of the vital documents (marriage certs etc) with instructions to only return these in the registered envelop provided. In the end they returned everything...

    Your p 60 s will go a long way i know they dont ask for them (i dont know why) but send in all the info they ask for ie wage slips and so so but to be honest they will only look at your P60 if sent .Maybe its because you only get one every 12 months but they do look at it a government document compared to wage slips they know every thing about you anyway even what you buy at asda if they can be bothered to check .

    I’d just like to thank everyone here for their continued support and wisdom! You’ve all been incredibly helpful and it’s because of people like yourselves that make this community thrive! Assuming it’s a success I’ll do my best to come back and help others from time to time.. so with that said, everything is finished and ready to send first thing Monday morning, feeling pretty good about it all, lol it’s only taken 3 months to get everything together so fingers crossed!

    One more question, and I guess this is more a personal preference but who did everyone use for shipping the documents to Sheffield, Royal Mail, dhl, fed ex? Just curious more than anything, cheers all

    Just a quick one i would get at least 5 copies of your translation / marriage certificates at 10 pence a go well worth it i found that out when we applied for the wife's FLM they had not been returned and cost me a bit more than the 10 pence a photocopier does it for (translation this was )
