Is there any other type of visa that might be suitable for him, that enables him to work, even if it is an interim step, so that he can then return to Australia at a time that suits them better to apply for the spouses visa? In the case of the spouses visa, are there absolutely no loop holes or exceptions that could possibly apply?
With respect to the financial requirement of his spouse needing to secure an income of 18,600 pounds a year, how does the home office calculate this? I ask this because that statement almost infers that she would have to be working for a whole year to determine this figure, especially if she is only working casually, albeit consistently.
I presume from your answer re wife's income, that the spouse visa financial requirement is actually not so much a time frame of working, but that once an income of 18,600 pounds has been achieved then the spouses visa can be applied for.
With respect to my son having to return to Australia to officiate the visa, what is the actual requirement? eg. Is it a minimum of 3 months he has to be back in the country, or can it vary for particular reasons, and what other things need to be achieved?
Hi Claire, sorry for break in communication, my mum just passed away.
Can you please explain what is required from an employer for a sponsorship visa. Just trying to figure out whether this still might be an option for my son.
