I live in the UK at the moment and she does plan to live in the UK with me.
She will arrive in the UK on Aug 23, and I will be also returning from a business trip on a different flight. We will land at different terminals at Heathrow airport. Does this matter?
Thank you, Tom.
The original receipt with the 5th July 2012 date stamp was taken away by the Worldbridge visa service. But she did obtain a photocopy of it. Would this be sufficient?
Does it seem unusual that she's only granted a 24month visa instead of the usual 27months, which gives extra 3 months to allow for travel arrangements to be made?
Is there any specific guidance on how much earlier than 24th August 2014 can she apply for ILR? The 2-year rule is a bit vague here. 6th Aug would be roughly 18 days before 24th August. Is there any rule that specify one can only apply up to a certain number of days (say 28) before the 2-year ILR qualification date?
While the date of receipt of submission of application and documentation would be accounted for when it comes to whether old rules or new rules would apply, do you know what is the meaning of the "UK Paris 11/07/2012" stamp on her passport?
