We have been advised today that the Home Office are now taking about six months to process family and settlement applications after attendance at the application centre in Bangkok. This is due to the situation in Ukraine.
It was announced today that the Immigration Health Surcharge is to be increased from the current £400.00 a year to £624.00 a year. This change to come in during October 2020 the exact date has not been announced. This is a large increase of 56%.
Within hours of Tony being interviewed twice by ITV Meridian for the news at 6 today the case in question has been immediately overturned by the Home Office and the visa issued. This was a case where the Home Office refused a settlement visa for a wife by applying the incorrect rule. Tony was asked for his comments on this case.

 
 
 




Existing Civil partners can apply for a visa in exactly the same way as married couples.

For same sex couples wishing to have a civil partnership ceremony in the UK the requirements under the immigration rules are exactly the same as for a fiancée.

Civil Partnerships are not possible in Thailand.

In all cases proof of the relationship will be required along with evidence that the financial and accommodation requirements are met, the English proficiency requirement and Tuberculosis test are also necessary as is a sponsorship letter.
