I believe I said in my original submission that the application had not been accepted by the British High Commission
We have been married for 15 years
My real question is about where I am living. Do I have to be in UK for her to apply?
You have not touched on this point
I am sorry to insist but we seem to be at cross purposes here.
My wife is in Nigeria and will apply there
I am working in Papua New Guinea
UKBA says I have to be in UK for her to apply in Nigeria
I obviously dont want to give up the job just in case she doesn't get the visa
