Default Spousal Visa - keep passport option - Query

I am going to be applying for my wife's spousal visa in early January. I wanted to look at the 'keep my passport' option when submitting biometrics etc with VfS. I just wondered whether it would be possible with this route for her to then travel to the UK? I read elsewhere that this could negatively affect the application. She is a Canadian citizen so normally doesn't need as Visa to enter.

Also, as the VfS centre is a long way from where my wife lives, would she then have to return to the same centre to complete the process once the application is approved?

Thanks

If she’s applying for leave to enter then she can’t be in the UK when her visa is granted as it would render it null and void.

Ok thanks.

On a slightly related note, does anyone know the time window allowed between submitting the online application form and booking the VfS Biometrics? I think I read it was 30 days but can't find confirmation.
