thanks so much for your answer.
But I am so sorry, you misunderstood my enquiry.
The title of the question is kind of scraped short when we post.
It should read
Changing and updating visa type details, what to do
need to know if my husband has applied to get his visa type changed, and we moved home, what do we need to do.
actually you have not answered my question which was that
if we made an application as you outlined in your answer
we then move to our first home from the address that we were renting causing a change to our utillity service providers, address, our other information eg gas electricity and so on should we then write to the UKBA and provide details of all that has changed
eg if we were using scottish power but now use utility warehouse, those details will be out of date
or if our council tax was at a different address, it will now be at a different address than before.
Is it sensible and agreeable to write to them especially if the application is over 6 months old and provide them with the details of our new utililties and reassure them that we are still married
should we remind them that we cannot go on and do a lot of basic things because for example, they have all of both our birth certificates, passports, identification documents, and all our educational certificates for myself and my husband
I just cannot work out why on earth any government office would reasonably hold on to that much of a bulk of personal material/ documentation and only write us a short letter to say to him to go register biometrics since July.
We both explored and I personally trawled the UKBA guidance notes prior to making the application and we have provided every single detail that they asked for and more relating to income, residence etc.
Truthfully, I have already now decided it will be wise to write to them and attach any documents that indicate any changes to them and also to include any other information that may speed up the matter
And I also decided I would ask my husband not to make any FIR requests to them as it can make things take longer.
And I won't ask for any documents but hint that time being of the essence we have waited quite a while and perhaps cite the standard timelines they quote on ukba website for answering applications.
Thanks for the effort, sadly, the reply comes a good four/five days after I needed an answer, doesnt answer my question and also took longer than the 24 hours I expected on subscribing.
Well done for picking up the question and answering.
