提交材料:

Alex:

  • Supporting Documents Check List
  • Biometric Receipt
  • 新旧两本护照

Mei:

  • Supporting Documents Check List
  • Biometric Receipt
  • 护照
  • 绿卡复印件
  • Checking Account Statement

附加:

  • UPS Return Shipping Label

一些注意点:

  • UPS的Return Shipping Label必须是Air件,不一定要Next Day(很贵),2nd Day Air就行。
  • 夫妻两人一起申请,可以将材料放在一个信封里寄出,Return Label也只需要准备一份。
  • 官网的instruction是Put your return shipping label and envelope inside the package。但是其实这里只需要提供return shipping label,所谓的”envelope”不需要提供。
  • 网上看到如果邮件通知里有类似”concluded” (instead of issued) 的字样,代表签证被拒。但实际上并非如此,我收到的邮件就是以”Your UK visa application has been concluded by”开头的,但是签证是被批准的。
