Thanks a lot for your kind advice. One of my friend was willing to apply in november . He was looking for some expert to fill the form for him. I will definitely tell him to care care if the form is not changed. Thanks for nice information.

Has anyone had a request to supply an updated version of a form that was currently up to date when submitted...but following the submission of their visa application...a new form was released? We are in this situation now.

The CO has asked my Fiancee to complete a new 47SP form (among a few other things like more photos and details of my Govt. Pension) that was updated in November. However, our application was submitted on September 10...and received on September 13...with the CO assigned on September 29. This seems like madness to me..as we would be continually filling in new forms every time they decided to change the form.

The request for the new form does seem somewhat odd Doc. and it should be questioned as to why.
Being requested for additional information is always on the cards.

Cool

Thanx for the reply Wanderer.

I could understand their request if we had submitted the old form with our application. This whole process has been extremely stressful for both of us. it has involved my fiancée having to travel from the North west of Thailand to Bangkok on several occasions to get the necessary documents. She also had to make a trip to Chiang Rai to get another document. Trips to Chiang Mai to get medicals and translations of documents.

Now on top of all that we're expected to rewrite a 30 page form all because of an additional question that is new. It's ok for these bureaucrats to sit in their lovely air-cond offices while people are trying to do the right thing criss-crossing the country on these little adventures of hoops to jump through

I'm beginning to think that we should have built a leaky boat..painted her face black and sent her on her way to Christmas Island for processing. The Govt. would do all the work..there'd be no cost to us... and at the end of it all... the Govt. would give her a house... free medical and education.

Something not right with the current system when the people who do the right thing are penalised with insane bureaucracy!!

Cool Update

I'm happy to be able to let other members of this forum know that the officials processing our applications are human after all and will be sympathetic to a legitimate appeal to common sense.

This is part of their response:

"Thank you for information provided. We will accept the additional information of form 47SP instead of providing the whole new application if it would be difficult for you."


Good luck to everyone who is still awaiting the outcome of their Visa application.

Cheers
Andy

How about online form? Say I have the form saved for a few months now. Is it updated automatically?

forms

There is no law that says your forms must not be accepted and there is no law that allows officers to insist on new forms to be filled in. It is not a valid reason to delay a decision. They can however, make a decision based upon the infomation (in totality) which has been submitted.
