    Find another authorized lab to do the TB test and see if they get the same results or not is what I would do 1st.

    Indeed, my wife had a TB xray come up positive, they did it again at the same hospital and it was negative. However if they have already asked for a sputum test I don't think you have a choice.

    If I am applying family visa via Cat D (savings). It stated they will need 6 months bank statement.

    The question is, do I have to build up 6 months of real bank statement before I can apply or I can goto my bank and pay them to print previous 6 months on original letterhead paper?

    On HSBC at least, you can print out your own statements. I've used them for various things - loans, mortgages etc and self printed statements have been fine.

    Never used for the British visa app though. When I looked at it, I think you could get print outs stamped at the bank for extra credibility.

    Back in the green now, on todays inflation data. The effects of a weak pound feeding through and hitting the UK consumer in the pocket - inflation up to 2.9% - well ahead of any other developed market.

    I did mine with BOC.
    They gave a printout for the past 6 months but they stamped it which was fine.

    Not true

    Really - Ern's understanding is the same as mine? This is why the Survinder Singh solution came into being.

    An interesting case where it was settled by being the wife of an EU citizen exercising his treaty rights.

    While this case is pretty nasty, i can't help but wonder why this couple was entitled to child benefit. Right to live fine, right to benefits when not even an EU national... Kind of explains why some people voted for Brexit.
