Just wanted to give an update.  I sent an email to visa_enquiriesny@fco.gov.uk, and got a reply within the hour!  They gave us instructions of where/who to send our passports to so that they could fix the error on our visas.  Thanks for all your help!

Hello Everyone,

I just received my stuff back in the mail and am checking my visa for error, it all looks right. Valid from date and Valid until date is exactly 6 months. My birthdate is right and my passport number is right. However,  I'm unsure of what the correct formatting for my name is as I've never seen a UK visa before.  :P

On my visa it's      Name   Surname First Name Middle Name


Is that correct or is it supposed to be First Middle Surname? I just wanted to clarify before I booked any travel.

Edited to add: Also, is my Fiance's name supposed to be on there?

Thanks for your help!

Sounds correct to me - just did a Google search for UK visas and the couple that I could find without the names blacked out were Surname, First, Middle.

Don't think so.

My visa was issued August 2010, and it is a spouse visa, but for what it's worth...

The name format on my visa is:  Surname Forename Middlename
Ex.  If I were Jane Anne Smith, it would appear on the visa as Smith Jane Anne.

My spouse's name does appear on the visa; however, that may be due to it being a spouse visa as opposed to a fiance(e) visa.  Hopefully someone with a fiance(e) visa can hop in to say what their visa says?

I did shoot them an email about it, so I'm waiting to hear back before I book my travel arrangements. When I get an answer, I'll be sure to update the thread.

I believe it's only the spousal visa that has the spouse's name on it. Earlier I found an example of someone's fiance visa on Google and it too just said 'Marriage' on it, with no spouse's name.

PlainPearl - what you've posted above looks about right to me.

ksand24 - Please don't think I'm doubting you. I'm sure you're right on the money. I just figured that I would wait for them to respond to my email before I bought a ticket. With my luck, I'll buy the ticket and then they'll email me requesting it back and then I'll worry about getting it back in time.  :P

There is no error on your visa. You're good to go.

I am so glad I came across this advisory.
I checked my husbands spouse visa the day it arrived, once I'd got over the shock of actually getting it.
All seemed to be in order but I just looked again, having read this thread and the valid from and to dates are as follows.

valid from 22/02/13          valid to  22/11/15

So 2 years and 9 months of validity.

Is this something that I need to have corrected?

Why do you think it needs correcting?

The visa is supposed to be valid for 33 months and it has been issued for 33 months... so there is nothing to correct.

Oooh, I'm so glad to hear that, thank you!

I found this on UKBA
"If you applied to come to the UK or for permission to stay here on or after 9 July 2012 and that permission was granted, you will need to be in the UK for 5 years before you qualify for settlement. You will initially be given leave to enter for 2 and a half years, and then you can apply for another period of 2 and a half years."

33 months is two and three quarter years.  Am I just being too literal or was I looking at the wrong page?
