Hello, regardig engagement and marriage visas. My question is would a sponsor be able to meet requirements if they only have savings above £16,000 or the required amount, whilst NOT having an income of over £18,600 ? It says in requirements that the sponsor must have an income of at least £18,600 or enough savings to support the applicant (from what i can see the minimum savings amount is £16,000). Also, is it possible to us a uk based parent as a sponser or guarentour to his son fiance ? I look forward to hearing from you
