Renew marriage visa

Post by mac1966 » August 18, 2021, 9:00 am

Is there a recent update in renewing your extension of stay based in marriage. Do you need to take a witness again to the immigration office when applying. Thanks

Everything was the same for me as last year when I renewed about 9 weeks ago which included a witness if that helps.

The little pamphlet of requirements is still dated 3rd December 2008

The only exception being I didn’t get a house visit during the under consideration period

Did mine in late July.

Witness required, and, as above, no house visit thus far. Last year the visit was within about a week of the application.

One snag this year - photos that were OK last year were not acceptable this year. One with the loving couple standing in front of the marital house must include the entire frontage of the house. Also needed a couple of different views in the bedroom, not just the couple sitting on the bed.

Edit: just saw noos's post - my return date is a Sunday. :-s

It really amazes me that after you have been through the process without any problems for 4 or 5 or even 10 times, quite often seeing the same Immigration Officer multiple times, they still need to go through the wife/photos/witness process. Lets face it there's more information on their computer about me than any member of my family back in UK knows (even those who get "hints" from facebook)
