Wondered how long they keep your passport for when applying for a Spouse Visa? I am Aussie and DH is British, so would like to do a few trips before we go back to Oz for 'good' but if they hold on to our passports the whole time then that won't be possible.
Does anyone have any recent experience of processing times for Spouse Visas in London? Or know where I can get an idea? We are hoping to go late Feb, and have left it quite late (need to work some financial stuff out before we send the application in) so just want to work out if it is worth doing it here, or waiting till we are 'home.
