Home Office wins judgment on minimum income threshold

Home Office wins judgment on minimum income threshold

The Home Office welcomes a Court of Appeal judgment, upholding the lawfulness of the income threshold under the new family migration rules.

The minimum income threshold for British citizens to sponsor a non-EEA spouse or partner or child to come and live in the UK was introduced in July 2012. It aims to ensure that family migrants do not become reliant on the taxpayer for financial support and are able to integrate effectively which also should be achieved by the British sponsors wife to be able to work legally to increase their yearly income.

The minimum income threshold was set, following advice from the independent Migration Advisory Committee, at £18,600 for sponsoring a spouse or partner, rising to £22,400 for also sponsoring a child and an additional £2,400 for each further child. which in most peoples case was above the County average and certainly affects those living in the North of the UK,

Family life must not be established in the UK at the taxpayer’s expense

Immigration and Security Minister James Brokenshire said:

I am delighted that the Court of Appeal has comprehensively upheld the lawfulness of this important policy.

We welcome those who wish to make a life in the UK with their family, work hard and make a contribution, but family life must not be established in the UK at the taxpayer’s expense and family migrants must be able to integrate.

The minimum income threshold to sponsor family migrants is delivering these objectives and this judgment recognizes the important public interest it serves.

Today’s judgment overturns an earlier High Court judgment from July 2013, which was supportive of the approach but found that the impact of the minimum income threshold on family life could be disproportionate.

Applications on hold will now receive a decision

The judgment will mean that, from the 28 July, the 4,000 individuals whose applications are currently on hold, pending this judgment, will now receive a decision. These are cases which met all the requirements apart from the minimum income threshold and now stand to be refused.

This is the saddest news received in my working career and feel that the decision makers should be held accountable for splitting 4000 families including Children who already have a UK passport and not including any Human rights or deviations, the new rules have come as a shock as we all felt that they would be made easier or taken away but again the lapdogs have backed their own people at other peoples expense, we will continue to ponder this ruling for years to come as the flood gates to the EU are still open and illegal Immigrants. And they have the cheek to state it is to save tax payers money!!!!!!!!!

Settlement visas to the UK delays

Unfortunately settlement visas for your Thai wife or Thai fiancee to go and live in the UK the waiting times have gone back to roughly about 3 months, previously we had a window of about 3 weeks were settlement visas for the UK were being given in 3-4 days and all of a sudden it has gone back to the normal waiting times.

A UK Settlement visa means that your Thai legal wife or future Thai fiancee is going to live with you in the UK for the rest of their lives and live with you as your legal partner.

This visa allows your Thai wife to work legally and obtain a National Insurance number and get free medical treatment so for the future it will make a huge difference to your lives together as being split apart with your in the UK and your Thai wife in Thailand can put strain on anybody’s relationship.

There are alot of benefits also including the Thai nationals English ability will go from strength to strength due to being surrounded with the English language and not Thai so your Thai wife or Thai fiancee living in the UK is a huge bonus to you both and especially if you are planning on having a family together.

Holiday visa for Thai to the UK

Holiday visa to the UK for a Thai National can be a tiring and difficult process if you are not experienced in the procedure or the documents needed to satisfy the British Embassy Visa officer.

So what are they looking for? Answer= how long is a piece of string they have their own set of rules that only an experienced visa consultant would know, OK it can be achieved on your own but only if you are very lucky as Migration to England is getting far more difficult.

They start by looking at the visa sponsor which is the British Citizen, boyfriend, husband to see if he can finance the holiday with bank statements, employment and earnings and also secure accommodation for his Thai partner, Thai girlfriend or Thai wife to stay so getting these documents in place correctly is a must and never supply overdrawn bank statements

They look at the Thai applicant, do they have a good financial standing, do they have a job, do they have a reason to return if not then how are you going to show someone who has nothing to return to will definitely return? a visa consultant would know, so all the documents she has with regards to finances must be shown, job, home, vehicles, savings, land in Thailand etc.

Relationship is very important knowing the documents that must be shown and how much to show is paramount as a genuine honest and loving relationship is important so telephone bills, e-mails, photographs, chat records, money transfers, visa stamps, trips around Asia, photos with the family are all important when applying for a visa.

The reason for the relationship documents is they wish to ascertain you know your Thai partner and they know the UK sponsor enough to feel satisfied that the relationship is responsible enough for your Thai partner to return to Thailand.

Many reasons as well as the above can lead to a refusal, spelling mistakes, wrong translations, online application done in correctly, saying the wrong things, lack of documents, photos not suitable, finances not correct, presentation unprofessional, sponsors letter written incorrectly.

The above are just a small number of reasons why using the best visa company in Thailand Key Visa Thailand will save you money and heartache, would you want to put a price on your Thai partners happiness? “NO” so consider using Key Visa e-mail info@keyvisathailand.com

Millie – Experiences in Thailand

Hi, my name is Millie. I turned 15 in May. I have been living Thailand for a year now, but I’ve been visiting the country since I was 3 weeks old.My hobbies consist of: playing guitar, singing, making YouTube videos, making people laugh and listening to music. I am half Thai and can speak a little Thai although my reading and writing is better than my speaking.

My friends and I met the first ever Thai Astronaut!I was born in England, then a few months later we had to move to Paris, due to my dad’s job. He’s a stock broker, but now he works at home.Before I had properly moved to Thailand I was at a boarding school in the north of Scotland, whilst my parents lived in the South of France. The reason we made a decision to move back to Thailand was because, there was an awkward stage where my dad lived in France, my mum here in Thailand and I was in Scotland. Now we feel much happier living together!
