I have married to a British citizen in December 2018. He left after 10 days and applied to work in Saudi Arabia. His plan was to apply for my spouse visa from Saudi Arabia rather than the UK because both government agencies need passports for the visa and he needs the job first.
Saudi government took his passport January and took ages to arrange a visa. Anyhow he got the visa at the end of the March and went to Saudi Arabia. He couldn't apply for my spouse or visit visa because he didn't get his Saudi National ID.
He got the Saudi ID before he left to the UK (summer holidays) in May. He arranged the appointment from the home officers. I guess they both told him you shouldn't apply because you don't work in the UK. For spouse visa you need to work in the UK. If I ask him to apply for visit visa he sometimes forgets to ask lawyers and sometime lawyer didn't reply back. I don't understand what is wrong, is he deliberately delaying things or
Q1: Is it really a rule of the UK government that you need to work in the UK if you apply for the spouse visa?
Q2: I don't work, if I apply for a visit visa they need my bank statement or can my husband sponsor me?
