No disrespect,but I don't agree like everyone on your Mrs visa (Leave to remain I take It?) You had two years to pass the Life In U.K test how long did you need mate.

She would have had Indefinite Leave by 2011 then .

 You would have had none of this Then, by 2012 she could have had a British passport .

 

Good Luck

Can’t agree mate , if he was a ‘Displaced African ‘ he could bring any women in and say it’s his wife ‘ thousands of bogus marriages ...

There you go Polish the whole country and the whole of every other EU country has the right to live in UK 🇬🇧 🤣🤣🤣

Marry an Asian straight in .. White working class Brits have different rules , the Poles other halves don’t have to do the UK test ..It’s their right to bring a spouse in , but not a Brits 🤣🤣🤣😂🇬🇧

Nothing to do with Africans either.

His wife (and I mean no disrespect to Matt) came over on a two year visa,where at the end of it they had to give a load of paperwork in to prove they are living together,married,both working plus a pass on Life In The U.K or whatever the equal college pass was.

They didn't do it so didn't get the visa..

Wouldn't matter who it was if you don't do as they ask and follow the visa rules they are knocking you back.

actually it was a 6 month fiancé visa,after which we married and went to Croydon to get another 2 years leave to remain.docs and everything shown and granted.and paid for I hasten to add.if people have no money then forget it.im not rich im working class.getting your lovely lady to heathrow is the start of a constant gravy train.happy crimbo.

All of Poland can come to UK and bring a foreign  partner, the partner does not need to jump through the hoops a British person has to thats my point ...

So a Brit has a different set of rules for brining a spouse in than an EU member  does ...  

An African can arrive say they have been persecuted  and bring a partner  in , they can lie about the marriage saying the documents were burnt ,,, They get in ... Africans claiming asylum don't do the same residency exam, well why should they :laugh:

But after the two years leave to remain Pukky didn't pass Life In The U.K and that's where your problems started,which is my point mate .

I hope you get it sorted it's gotta be doing your nut in.

All the best to you both too.

No idea about someone from Poland mate really.

I do know my mate (who is a U.K citizen living in Cyprus) got knocked back for his Phillipine wife entering the U.K and they have a 4 year old son (who was born in Cyprus,but has a U.K passport)..

No doubt it all needs sorting and cases that are obviously genuine should be priority.

Cheers pal all the best to you too 😊

Well all of Poland is allowed in every one , also they can bring a wife in as the report shows many are making money with bogus marriages , once they marry someone they are straight in ..

Sure a  UK citizen will get knocked back , I would agree genuine  cases need  sorting ,,,,, But the PC world we live in means the filth and scum who lie get priority and they don't have the same criteria when proving  its their spouse,,

Cheers mate happy Xmas and keep well :flower:

https://www.standard.co.UK/news/UK/revealed-false-claims-by-thousands-of-illegal-immigrants-clog-asylum-system-a3320131.html

Above you see many are claiming once caught, however  going forward  they will now know they have to claim as soon as they arrive .... meaning all get to stay :laugh:

Broken, Bankrupt  Britain ...

the best advice I can give is to treat every visa application as a job application and you wont go far wrong.make sure things are visible and don't need to be searched for,otherwise they will say you haven't sent what they were searching for.just another snippet

Spot on,  My wife came here in 2010 and got her UK passport in 2013  I looked into the L I U K test but it looked pretty tricky even for me so I opted for the 1 week English language course followed by a simple english exam that was required for Indefinate leave The  people at the language course also conduct the test and assured me of a 95% pass rate, it was all very simple £300 total cost.

Yep its something matt and his wife should have addressed from day one..

Puang did her first test on a holiday visa to present on the spouse visa application.

From landing here in the UK she spends at least one hour a day doing mock test.

I don't know if your girl did this or not matt but we are not taking any chances.

she did mate and tried 10 times,the best score being 16.then she did an English course for a week and an exam but they said the college wasn't on their approved list.when my wife came there was no English test in Thailand.i hope Puang passes quick.when the home office said that about the college.that is when discretionary leave to remain was granted.

I’d have given up by now, well done matty for persevering.

I had to do an online test yesterday to get some flea ointment for our Cilla but that’s as much as I ever endured.

Why doesn't she do the English course and test again with an approved college?

Congrats mate , it’s just  a saying we have , like “Back on the Island “ meaning Thailand , I was once told Thailand was not an Island on here ,was useful as I thought it was surrounded by water.
