This is a very good video to highlight what the British government is doing to families. I am British and live in Korea. My wife is Korean, and we have been married for two years. I want to go back to the UK to study (the LPC) next year, which means that I won’t be employed. By the time we will be ready to go back to the UK, I will have saved £35,000 to pay for my studies and living costs and more. Unfortunately, the government says that this is not enough – if I plan to go back to the UK, without a job, the only way to get a spousal visa is if I have £62,500 saved up – and kept in the bank for the 6 months preceeding our move to the UK. This is simply not possible. It’s not possible for me to get a job before I go back to the UK, but will be able to get one after finishing my studies, which will take 10 months. It’s a very difficult situation.

Couple reunited after immigration wrangle.

When church pastor Robert Cooper was told his beloved wife of 13 years could not join him back in the UK because of new immigration rules, he said his life had been ‘ripped apart’.


But now after six months away from each other the pair are back in each other’s arms and temporarily reunited – and have vowed to continue their fight to be together.

A South African man who was denied a visa to visit his poorly and ‘distraught’ mother living in Horsham has claimed the ‘whole decision was based on probabilities’.
