Default SOWP when to apply?

If we are travelling over in the next few weeks with LMO in hand to activate a TWP, I know I can apply for SOWP at the same time (as easier with supporting docs etc). I thought I read somewhere that I could apply earlier , or will my SOWP be issued the same time as partner's TWP ?

I thought a SOWP was issued at the same time as your oh work permit - therefore if he was applying for one by post beforehand, then you would send in your application with his - if doing it at the border then you both get them together too.

I suppose you could apply by post prior to going (with LMO, job offer etc) - but if that were the case you may as well send them in together and get them both beforehand?

Yep I thought that too - you need his LMO to get your SOWP right? Am sure someone else will know the answer to this.

Also doesn't the postal service take a while hence why a lot of people go for them at point of entry?

Depending on which embassy you apply for, can take a different amount of time.
For example, the Canadian Embassy in London is quoting 8-10 weeks for a TWP application.

apologies if my thread sounded misleading....that's what I meant. I know I can apply at the same time at POE for SOWP with OH LMO when he gets his TWP (as easier with having all supporting docs. I just thought that I could apply having copy of his LMO by post separately, beforehand. But I suppose if travelling shortly it makes sense to get them together

I would agree with you - if you are going shortly it would be easier if you just apply at POE. Then no hassle, chasing it if you post it.

As your SOWP is tied directly to your OH TWP - you cannot apply before that is issued. Your SOWP for example will have the same expiry date, regardless of individual application dates.
