So it depends on you. I had long statements and edited them down to the boxes, with the last line being "In the attached documents I have included evidence to support the above statement" and then for each of the boxes I have a pdf with photos or bills or whatever to fulfil each category. The first page of each PDF is a 'cover letter' of what the file contains and notes which bits of the statement that photo or whatever is evidence of.Good question! This is exactly what I'm wondering. I've posted a thread about it but had no answers so far. The statement will repeat a lot of what I've already answered in the boxes. But I've decided to do it anyway to be safe.
No, we haven't signed and dated them as our statements fit within the boxes. I don't think the additional evidence files need a signature since it's not new information, just evidence of what we've said already. That being said I'm sure signing and dating them wouldn't hurt!Thank you, this is excellent advice. I have done a visa for the U.K before and it was a lot more specific in the checklist about what was needed so I think I find this free styling a bit daunting. I like the way you did it and I'm going to use that!
So, just to clarify, it sounds like you did include a signed and dated declaration/statement from yourself and your partner (which you attached to the application) as well as filling out the boxes? Many thanks.
