The Brand New PIO Parents Visa thread

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me some help on minimum income for AOS providers.  My daughter is divorced and has two children, responsibility for whom is divided equally with her ex husband.  If she is our sole assurer will she need to take the full amount of the applicable supplement amount into account for both children when calculating her income requirement?  She is pretty close to the minimum taxable income required, and may not meet the requirement if she has to take the full amount for both children into account.  Crazy really when our joint retirement income is greater than her annual income and yet she is having to give assurance for our support!  Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks Kath - yes I had seen that page.   I'd done all the calculations and then started to worry.  I'm sure we will be able to work round it, but nothing is ever easy is it?  We'll hopefully be able to look back on this journey and laugh - hopefully!

I've been looking through the forums but can't find one for insurance, specifically for the emigration flight.  I've tried comparison sites but they all want a return date and of course I don't have a return date.  Any pointers please?  

I came with Insure and Go, no problem doing insurance for a one way flight and I just took it out for a couple of days, there by covering me for the journey out here.

I looked there too - no one-way, only return.  

Maybe they no longer do it, it was a few years ago.

I did a quick search for Emigration Insurance.  You could maybe use this

https://www.travelsupermarket.com/en-gb/travel-insurance/one-way/

 

I also found these:

I don't know if this will help but when we got our visa our daughter had a glitch with her AOS because she was on maternity leave at the time and didn't have a pay slip for a particular month because her mat pay had finished. she got an accountant to write to Centre link saying that normally she was earning enough to promise AOS and that was enough.

Many thanks for that.  Hopefully they will take her 2017/18 salary more into account which is more than enough.  We have others who can step in to provide AOS, but would rather keep it in house if we can.

Lots of people think that Fisher1 but it's wrong. The terms and conditions of travel insurance are your holiday must start and end in the uk. If it's a one way trip it's invalid.

Very sorry to hear still no sausage, we too have all this worry to come, so I do feel for you.

I wonder if there are any others also waiting (or recent grants) for 173 to 143 and can share their experiences.

We now wish we had applied directly for out 143s and we are going to see if it's possible to switch once we have our case officer appointed.
