I am in the UK on a SWV, my fiancé is in the UAE and we are Pakistani by passport. We are planning to get married in Pakistan and she is returning to the UAE for work and applying for a dependant visa. I have some questions regarding the following sections:
For either the UK or any other country, have you ever been: Refused a visa, Refused entry at the border, Refused permission to stay or remain?
- She was laid off from her job in August, so she returned to Pakistan and came back to the UAE on another job offer. Does this count as "Refused permission to stay or remain?" When she got laid off, her visa got canceled, so she could no longer stay in the UAE. It's kind of a gray area.
Have you been to any other countries in the past 10 years?
- The time when she got laid off, she exited the country (UAE). Does that need to be a part of this section?
- Accommodation proof
I have filled out the application form in advance. My Proof of accommodation is not asked for in the mandatory documents, should I still attach it?
- Third-party declaration
Do I need to sign the third-party declaration (at the end of the application) as her husband on behalf of her application? Or can she say that she is representing herself? I will be attaching my bank statements for proof as well. The exact option shown in the application is: "I am submitting the form on behalf of the applicant."
