The changes to the UK Immigration Rules on family settlement come into effect today.
Changes to the Rules will apply from 9th July 2012 and applications submitted on or after this date must be made using the new settlement visa application form (VAF4A) and appendices.
All applications submitted from today will be processed under the new Rules.
You must bring the appendix with you, along with your other supporting documents when you attend the visa application centre. If you do not complete and submit the correct appendix your application will be delayed and you will still have to complete the correct appendix.
