Immigration Session

with Katherine Houlston from AFF

MAUK were privileged enough to have Katherine Houlston, the Foreign and Commonwealth specialist at Army Families Federation join us for an immigration session.

The session was aired live on our Facebook page with 275 tuning in live, and a total of 14,500 views after the call had ended.

If you have any queries regarding immigration, please contact AFF. Also, please note that when emailing AFF for Visa and Immigration issues, it would be useful to include some key information in your initial email to save you a lot of back and forth.

These include:

  • When the soldier enlisted

  • Nationality of soldier

  • Nationality of children/where they were born/where was the soldier serving at the time of birth - if it's a question about children's applications

  • Any time spent overseas

  • When did you come to the UK

  • Any criminal convictions (required in some cases)

  •  For enquiries relating to ILR or citizenship, include a copy of your current visa

For any questions on Immigration and Visas contact the AFF Foreign and Commonwealth team at

We'd also like to thank Katherine and the AFF for such an informative session. Vinaka vakalevu!
