  • Useful Information UKVCAS emails regarding documents and CSI

    Applicants get a confirmation email after booking their appointment, this is a generic email sent to everyone, which says:

    You should bring all your original supporting documents – you will need them to complete your appointment...
    If you have booked an appointment that includes scanning services, then you need to take all your documents you have in hard copy to be scanned at the appointment.

    There is no need to print out documents you only have in digital format, such as electronic P60s, payslips, PDFs of statements, etc.

    You should upload documents in digital format before your appointment.

    The only document that gets checked at the appointment is your passport.

    The reason to bring other documents to the appointment is in case they did not get scanned and uploaded properly, or they are not of good enough quality to be used.

    CSI and emails from UKVCAS

    Several applicants have received emails from UKVCAS saying that a mandatory document is missing, and they should upload proof of CSI.

    UKVCAS staff have taken it upon themselves, to ask applicants for proof of CSI even when they didn't require it at all, for example, because they were never students or self-sufficient persons, they worked continuously, etc.

    This doesn't mean everyone needs to have had it, they are just being officious with this.

    UKVCAS staff do not work for the Home Office, they are just intermediaries, they do not deal with applications, make decisions, etc. only submit the uploaded documents to the Home Office.

    UKVCAS staff are not immigration advisors either, so they can't tell you what the requirements are for each application they deal with.

    If you didn't need to have CSI, all this can be safely ignored.

    Should the caseworker dealing with your application require further information or documents, they will get back to you asking for it.

      The exact same principles above apply to those cases where applicants are asked for proof of CSI at the appointment.

At the appointment if asked you can state that CSI was not required for either of you at any time as you have been a worker throughout and for any periods that your wife was not working she was married to you who was working. As long as you have explained this in your cover letter then you are fine. Remember it is the Home Office caseworker that will be assessing your application and it is he / she to whom your letter is important - not some unqualified person at UKVCAS
