You really think those sort of bogus marriages for visa benefits exist ONLY in the US?

Re: Highs and lows for 2 months

As a pensioner you are entitled to a free bus pass that covers the whole UK, no need to buy a day bus pass!

Re: A Couple of Questions re filing the I-130

Well it makes no bones to me if it takes 25 years for people to get US spouse visas or if they even abolish them. I just don't think someone could be mistaken in thinking if they are a USC and they...

Re: A Couple of Questions re filing the I-130

Yes but that's their loss surely? It seems unfair to make genuine couples wait months longer just for that.

Re: Lost X-ray CD

Funny 'cos the POE officers would have no clue as to whether a chest xray showed TB or not anyway! (Unless in the unlikely event that a qualified doctor or radiologist had taken a job as an IO!)

Re: A Couple of Questions re filing the I-130

It does seem daft though. If you get them to pay the fee upfront, then if they DON'T qualify at the time of the interview, it will be their fee they've wasted. Besides, I really doubt many people...

Re: X-Ray thingie at the airport

At least the Americans give you the option. In the UK, if you refuse the naked scanner you aren't allowed on the flight.

I actually had one when they were being trialed at Heathrow. The woman who...

How come the ConOff can't just check it at the visa interview?

Re: Any tips applying for UK jobs when still in Canada?

What kind of visa did your DH have? ILR expires after 2 years outside the UK.

Re: Any tips applying for UK jobs when still in Canada?

Make sure it is obvious to employers, if using a foreign address, that you are legal to work in the UK, as this is a compulsory question on all job application forms. Maybe put "Nationality - British...

Yeah it's simple enough esp for Spouse visas - check the marriage certificate! Why does that take 5 months??

Re: Visa medical and old tattoos

Gosh, I never heard of this before! I know for Oz any tattoo and you have to have a Hepatitus test, but why HIV? I thought the USA did not care about HIV any more, and did not routinely test for it?...

Debate on why there is a petition stage for an Immigrant Visa

Oh right. That's quite puzzling then. I once asked on here why they have the 'petition' stage on the visa process at all (the UK has no equiv) and was told by an immigration lawyer that is was a kind...

Re: does anyone actually not miss their family back home ? ;)

Bit like 'Friends' where Ross goes to London at the same time as Emily goes to NYC!

Re: Spouse to ILR, general info

We did leave the building and it was OK. They said we could leave for a couple of hours. Obviously ask before you try it though. It was boring enough as it was without a couple of hours out for lunch.

Re: does anyone actually not miss their family back home ? ;)

Slightly OT, but for those who've never done it, surprise visits rock! We had always planned to one day do a surprise visit to DH's family in Boston, but for DH's 40th in 2009, a couple of weeks...

Not sure as we live only 15 mins by bus. But I expect you could park in Sainsbury's carpark opposite.

Re: Spouse to ILR, general info

Well some people reckon Croydon is really rough, my DH is one of them! However I've never had a problem. I usually only go there shopping so am not there late at night, though I used to work P/T...
