Even if my application is for: settlement/settlement/marriage.

I want to apply for settlement after I marry in UK within those 6 months.

I received an email after I paid for my visa that applications for Non-settlement, EEA and Returning Resident Applications are sent to New York and Settlement (Family Migration) are sent to Sheffield.

I know my visa is not for settlement its a 6 month permit to marry. Therefore I'm guessing my application would apply in that category towards New York since it isn't really settlement, right?

Any help is appreciated.

If you were told to send settlement applications to Sheffield then that is what you should do as yours is a settlement application.

Hello Everyone,

Just received an email from Sheffield asking me to send supporting documents to:

​​​​​UK Visa and Immigration
PO Box 5852
Sheffield
S11 0FX

But the VFS Global and gov.uk sites instruct I should address it to:

Settlement Applications, International Operations and Visas

at the same address... Does it matter who I should address it to? :blink:

Many thanks in advance :)

Hi Mrs. E,

I just sent mine to the PO Box and they got it just fine. Infact, I think I just had the address on it (don't think it was addressed to anyone).
I also put my name, GWF number, VAC location (in my case was VAC Perth, Australia) and 'Priority Settlement' on the envelope.

Good luck :)

My husband is posting our application to Sheffield today... So nerve wracking! Then its out of our control and we just have to wait.

I honestly don't know how I would've completed our application without this forum :)

I think you need to use a postal service (Royal Mail,etc). None of the courier companies will deliver to a PO Box

Is it better to send your documents in file folder or only paper format without any files and dividers?

Don’t send them bound in any way or contained within individual plastic files. If you want to separate different sections then use a cover sheet and a mini bulldog clip. You want to keep them in order but also make it easy for the person receiving them to reorder and/or scan if necessary.

Hello Ashley_bah,

I've quoted a post from the lovely em28, who mentioned that she just had the address on the package and they received it fine :)

I hope this helps!
