I living and working in the UK under a Global Talent visa. My partner is currently applying for a dependant visa and, on the online application form, is asked the following question:
Has UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) agreed to certify your maintainance?
If you are unsure ask, [your partner with the Global Talent visa, which is me]. You can check this on their funding endorsement letter.
We are confused by this question because it is oddly specific and it is unclear to us whether this is a necessary requirement. I am endoresed by UKRI (UK Research and Innovation) and have never heard anything of UKTI.
Question: Are we right in answering this question with 'No'?
We are worried that we are missing something crucial and will not have the chance to explain our confusion.
As a side question: if the success of the application hinges on our answer to this question, will UK Visa and Immagration contact us about this, or will there just be a rejection with no chance for explaining ourselves?
