If the applicants for the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa lodge the application without these two documents, the application will automatically be denied even if they are truly eligible for the visa they are applying for.
The UK Embassy guys in the Philippines, however, are lenient when it comes to a missing pay slip or an omitted bank statement. In these cases, they sometimes write an email to the applicant instructing the latter to send the Embassy a copy of the missing pay slips or bank statements.
But in the case of the TB Test or English Language Test results, if the applicant fails to attach the documents to prove they passed the two tests, the applicant can kiss her more than PHP95,000 embassy application fee goodbye.
ECO-Friendly disclosed that in the Philippines, there are only two accredited English Language testing centers. On the other hand, there is only one Tuberculosis testing clinic recognized by the UK Embassy to conduct the test within the whole Philippines.
Applicants for the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa usually line up at these testing centers hoping they will pass the two tests in order to get a step closer to their dream of permanently living in the UK one day.
ECO-Friendly reveals that passing the English test is not that difficult since the whole process takes only around fifteen minutes.
In the Philippines, the main purpose of the English Language Test is to determine that he applicant for the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée visa is knowledgeable in the English language, enough for her to communicate with her British partner and to survive the daily activities while in the UK.
Mere basic knowledge of the English language is the key to passing the test and this is the main reason why the test is comprised of SPEAKING AND LISTENING only.
Meantime, the TB test is of course conducted to determine whether the applicant for the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa does not have Tuberculosis before he or she enters the UK.
All applicants, including their children, except if the child is below 11 years of age are required to undergo the TB test.
However, these exempted children will have to undergo an interview or oral examination to determine if they need to be screened for the TB or not.
The test fee does not include any treatment should the applicant for the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa is later determined to be diagnosed with tuberculosis.
