Hi, I want to apply for a uk spouse via for my wife who is in turkey.she will go to a VAC in her country to submit the documentsbut since i am in london now and she is in turkey. am i able to complete the vaf4a on her behalf myself? Form: VAF4Aif so is the following an ok answer?( i mean me writing it or does she have to write it?)8.1.4: Please provide details of how you meet the Engish language requirements: My wife has completed the Language requirement...etcand can I pay by my visa debit card from halifax?and how does the biometrics work, do i get those from same place where i print out the visa form after it had been completed, paid and printed after?
Hello,I am happy to deal with your UK immigration law issues. Yes, you may complete the form on her behalf and you need to give details of how she meets the English language requirements in question 8.1.4.Fees will be payable in local currency so you need to check whether your debit card is acceptable.Once the application has been lodged, she will be asked to come in for biometrics where the application was lodged.Thank you
hi thanks. when i complete the form. for my wife a application . do i used the word. my . . or my wife's . when answeringbthe questions. ibmean when I fill in the form am i supposed to act like the sponsor . or act like the applicant
I suggest you act like the applicant and let your wife sign the form.All the best
ok. the ukba would knowI that she did not write it herself. and my plane tickets to there are not until mid July. and i will show all my tickets for visa. so they would know i was not there to write the application and i wrote it from the UKpretending to be my wife . is this lying? and i have used my debit card to pay for things from turkish websites. such as open plane ticket for her to come here. would this be ok for visa?
It would not be a problem.You are allowed to complete the form for your wife as long as she is happy for you to do so and as long as she signs it. It is not lying, you are allowed to help her complete the form as long as she understands what it contains.Your card should be okay to pay the visa fees.All th best -please rate my answer positively and we can continue for free if need be
hi thank you, application was all done paid for and appointment booked. only problem is. on the print out of the online application, i made a couple of errors, i dont know what to do, am i able to amend them on the print out?(by pen) or will too much corrections cause the eco to refuse the visa?
You may amend by hand (pen).Please rate my answers.
hello, does this include all type of errors???? example. when the question asked if the applicant recieves any income from any other sources, including friends or family. i selected the box 'YES' then fillled out the relavent box which opened up. The correct answer is 'NO', as this does not apply to the sponsor/husband i believe, and it is not classified as income as i mentioned i had given her money for traveling to airport to meet me and books, and a few things including mothers day gift. But the money was to buy Her mother a gift, i dont want the ECO to think my wife is a mother. would this seem that way? but since i chose the wrong Box, i should put a line through all of this? and also what about the box i seleted as YES' do i mark that out and right 'No'? also made error with my mothers name. i put her name she uses, not her birth name, can i correct this without problems? lastly, am i allowed to add anything else on the form? either in the relevant box if there is space. or under additional information? Worldbridge, advised a spelling mistake is acceptable if its corrected. but if one error affects the next question, they advise i cancel and apply again, does this apply to when i mentioned above i chose YES instead of NO? i hope it is ok to cross out yes and put no, and cross the sentance i wrote after it which i elaborated on my wifes money from me, dont know if i have the authority to cross out 'YES' and put 'No' since i selected it from the computer and did not type it. unsure what i should do, worldbridge said the money can take a couple of months to receive, and at moment financial status is low and after july 9th not possible to bring my wife here
Pleaserate my previous answers positively first if we can continue
it says 'Rate to finish'
Don't worry, it will not finish.
sorry, cannot risk it, because you have no obligation to follow up once you have been paid.(worry on my front) I have used this service twice before. and seems to have gone through as on bank statements, i marked once answer excelent or something but should not as it did not turn out true which is why i am making the application form before the 9th. other question my laptop hard drive went by the time i got a new one, it was too late to ask anything else
Okay, fair enough.You may cross out all errors on the form and attach separate sheets setting out the corrections.Hope this clarifies. Please rate my answer now as your original query has been answered
thanks for the reply, tried to reply via mobile but its error prone so i have come to the library now.
am i also right in thinking i can add anything on the seperate sheet which i may of mis interpreted the question? i assumed since i have paid and submitted the application online, with it showing a date of 30th, that i was unable to amend changes?
also one last thing please, the biometrics have been booked for 2 weeks time, as you may be aware july 9th the spouse visa rules change. i have applied for the visa already online and paid (as long as i dont have to cancel it due to my errors) am i right in thiking i can go to the biometrics after the 9th and come under the current rules(pre 9th july)?
thanks again for the help, i have about 44 minutes here in the library, so it should be enough if your online to hear back from you, and rate you positive. regards
As long as you apply before 9th July, you will be fine.Biometrics can be taken after 9th July.You can explain everything on a separate sheet of paper.All the best
i just got this message when i logged into my work email.. from worldbridge (the uk border agencys commercial parter)
i informed them of my situation. same things as i told you.
they just said to me, 'Please be informed that you are not able to correct the mistakes made on the online application form. therefore you should fill out a new online application form and get a new GWF number. If you have an appointment scheduled with your current GWF number you should change this appointment and re-schedule it with the new one.
can you advise what to do? conflicting information . regards,
It is your choice, you may either re-do the whole process and fill in another online form or you may make the corrections yourself, see the last paragraph here: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/countries/online/applying/?langname=nullThe UKBA has stated:

now i am more confused... the one you pasted says you can correct any mistake, and the one on the website u gave said make the changes in writing. does that mean the changes may not be accepted???????
You are simply confusing yourself, please make the changes in writing and submit the form.All the best. I have answered your queries.
ok thanks, sorry, just one last question(regading mistakes), and i will leave feedback today. if i want to delete a passage in an answer, that i should not of wrote. and for another question i want to add something. can i do this. or this would not be classed as a mistake? sorry again just need to know this, as i think i have apply again and pay the 901 pound fee again, and i am sitting here ready to start form again if i have to. will definetly leave top feedback after this .regards
