my wife and I live in Toronto Canada (married for 15 years), I am a Canadian Citizen and she was born in the UK and also has Canadian citizenship. We are both IT professionals. We travel to the UK on vacation every year. We would like to move permanently to London. How do we go about this? I know so far that she will have to sponsor me ... Regards Alex
Yes she has UK citizenship and a UK passport
We both earn considerably more the 18600 UK (100000+ CAN)
Our savings are not in that range 62500 UK will be 120000 CAN ... no there yet. We do however own a condominium valued over 1 million CAN
Thank so much for a most excellent reply, you provided everything I need.
Hi ThomasWe are going to follow your advice
1) We will remain in Canada my wife and I for the time being2) My wife has begun to apply for UK jobs3) We will instruct a UK Lawyer shortly4) Nearing the time we wish to relocate I will apply from Canada
So far so good? ... here the new questions
My wife being a highly qualified IT consultant has received immediate interestCan she travel to the UK and interview with potential employers? You mentioned she will need a job offer to start working within 3 months of me obtaining th 27 month Visa Correct?
When I get my 27 month Visa you mention I must travel to the UK within 3-6 monthscan you elaborate a bit more on this?
Nearing the time we wish to relocate I will apply from Canada, Do I submit the applicationor does my wife need to submit it on my belhalf?
Is there anything else we should be aware of other than what we have discussed so far?
Not sure I understand this bit, can you elaborate on this?
-You need to travel within 3 months or so, so that you don't have to extend two times (as opposed to just one) in order to reach 5 years in the UK-
Thank you Tom
