    Visa for your Chinese wife after the issue of a BRP

    Post by makem on 05/09/12, 10:06 am

    I was just think the other day about the posts concerning vignettes and BRP.

    If in future all you wife has in her passport is an expired Entry as Spouse of......... vignette what will be necessary to prove permanent residency in the UK? Must send the card? Scan of card?

    Anyone been there yet?

    It depends what your trying to prove.

    For a Schengen Visa to travel Europe for example, I would suspect they will need both the Chinese passport (proof of nationality) and her ID Card as proof of permanent residency in the UK.

    Well, for any application anywhere she would need to prove a) her Nationality and b) her legitimate place of residence.

    In addition, in the case of b)she needs to prove her relationship with a UK citizen to obtain a free Schengen visa.

    I am a little concerned about sending a small plastic card when we hear about passports being mislaid. I bought a registration number for my new car, sent the V750 to the sales office first class and they never received it, or, it is lost in their offices. I will take a new one by hand at a cost of 8 for Hans bus and a 44 minute walk, taking up nearly a whole day Sad

    BTW, Having to use my bus pass for 2/3 months has certainly made me aware of it's value.

    Hi Eric,

    Personally I never send anything of importance by just 1st class post.

    If I were sending passports, ID cards, Marriage books etc, I'd pay for RM Special delivery and enclose the same for return. It's tracked and signed for so gives peace of mind.
    I always justify the cost of postage, against the value of the contents and subsequent replacement, inconvenience etc to replace the items.

    Mmmm! Would you need to send a marriage book. Doesn't her passport state she is the wife of...................... and your passport confirms you are a British citizen.

    The V750 arrived with a first class stamp and it is not valuable so I sent it similarly. I agree and have always used special service for valuables.

    I can't remember if I sent our marriage documents (translated A4 size 'book'), for Hans previous Schengen visa. Perhaps Derek can remember as he would have had to do the same. I don't think we will have time before the weather changes this year to do my planned 2000 mile trip in the EU this year. a) we can't leave until Han gets her BRP and b) we don't have transport yet. Will have to be content with the UK as Scotland is a washout lol.
