Just an update: picked up my wife's visa today! It took around 30 working days in the end (after paying 600 quid for the 10-15 day priority service).
Basically no contact from UKVI once we applied, apart from stock responses to email enquiries. I contacted my local MP, who just resigned as leader of the Lib Dems, to look into the matter and he seems to have been able to speed up the process as we know of a few couples who applied earlier than us, but are still waiting. Not sure if his chasing it made a difference, but worth a go for other people to contact their local MP if they're waiting.
If anyone has any questions about our application, just ask!
I thought it would be a simple process, (I am in reverse, UK to HK). Good luck to you and your new life in the U.K., but it really sounds like you have more than resources to make it happen.
If you need a place to rent, I have a two bed flat in Tunbridge Wells in a lovely location if you want to rent for medium term.
Anyways best if luck and enjoy life without evil mosquitoes ahhhh....
Well done with getting there in the end. Hope you have a wonderful new life over in the UK.
Your name did give me a chuckle! I remember that episode so well
Does anyone know if we show MPF portifilo to meet the 62K sterling requirement, would they accept it???
