Sorry for delay
Thanks for you reply which confirmed some important points; we're heading for great rating!
I would appreciate any further details on the information required by the UK Border Agency concerning savings.
William is not planning on giving income information as he hasn't had regular or sufficient income and not at all in last 2 years in China.
He can show savings of more than the required amount for over 6 months (certified bank account statements) and is planning on saying it is from "previous employment and inheritance."
Specifically when asked about a 3rd party source saying "Inheritance from Grandmother"
!. Do you consider this satisfactory?
2. Are they likely to need more details and evidence?
3. Are they likely to provide an opportunity to provide more details or evidence without a simple rejectionof the visa?
We're hoping that with an offer of accommodation ( letter and Land Registry details), with daughter having a British passport and wife's previous spouse visa ( not renewed as left to go to China for their daughter's birth) that should be more than enough.
Thanks and look forward to hearing from you.
