Default Hard copies of letters from friends/family for Spousal?

Hi, All.

Just a quick one. In the process of completing Spousal Sponsorship application. Do we need hard copies of the acknowledgment of legitimate relationship letters from family and friends? We're applying inland and my family in the UK have written them up but can they send a photocopy of a signed letter or does it have to be an original signed hard copy?

Thanks in advance.

Edward.

I would send the original signed hardcopies and keep photocopies of all forms etc. that you send in.

Hey, good luck with your application!
I actually just sent screen shots from what’s app/messanger which showed me chatting to my friends about my spouse. Things like he is working later, what our plans were, normal conversation between family.

originals are better and they do send everything back.

good luck!

Thanks, guys.

I'll get my family in the UK to send their's out to me then I think. I was just kind of thinking it would be a lot quicker for them to send me a photocopy of their signed letters but perhaps it's safer to wait a couple weeks for the hard copies to be sent out.

Thanks again
