Please, could you please give me more info on that
"unless the requirement can be met by the level of available savings."
He has a job offer of 21k and cash savings of 22K, is it enough?
Sorry, he is british and is with me in Argentina. He has not being working last 12 months (I did, but it seems it doesnt count), he has a job offer and he has 22k of cash savings.
Wow, I'm shocked. After speaking to an other agency 2 months ago and they advised us that only the job offer would be ok, we got all the other docs together, such as english test, job offer, etc. and scheduled the appointment at the consulate, and now we receive this info :(
What do you recommend us to do? We already paid and scheduled the appointment, but as you are saying, it s gonna be denied if he wasnt working here before? Should I send the docs anyway? Is there a way to get my money back if I didnt went there yet to put my fingerprints?
I think we have found an other way, please check if this will work:
* Temporary work from last year of 7k (1 invoice + bank statement to prove) + the Job offer of 21k starting in Feb.
* Rental income of 7k (mortgage deeds, rental contract + bank statement)
* 29k on cash savings (bank statements)
I also have some more savings in brazil but it would not help us reach the 62k
Do you think it would work? Would you recommend me to apply then?
(i) Can I use bonds as a form of cash savings or other form to cover the rest, if necessary? It was in my savings accounts for more than 6 months and I had transferred to bonds 2 months ago?
(ii)Part of the savings came from rental income. Can I count it as cash savings too? We received the money but didnt use it. Can we count 7k of rental income + 7 k of savings (that came from rental income)?
