I have a question regarding continuity of exercising treaty rights. My situation is as follows:
1) started employment (part-time, 16,5h): 30 March 2006
2) received Work Registration Scheme certificate for that start date: 9 May 2006
3) received HO Residence Registration Certificate: 22 Jan 2007
4) studied for BSc: Oct 2006 to Sept 2009 -proof of sufficient funds available but no comprehensive health insurance as until today I did not know about the requirement
5) studied for MSc 30 Oct 2009 - 29 Sept 2010, graduated: 12 April 2011 -again sufficient funds but no comprehensive health insurance
6) while studying for MSc I voluntarily left part-time job from point 1) to focus on writing MSc dissertation. I received HMRC P45 Part 1A Details of Employee leaving work 27 June 2010. I was only a student for these 3 months not seeking work or ill.
7) went on quick holidays abroad between 9 and 15 Sept 2010.
8 ) Received contract of graduate, full-time employment March 2010 with the starting date: 20 September 2010. I took it on and work there to date.
In one word: I have a 3 months gap in continuity of employment when I was only a student but without comprehensive medical insurance. My question is: are Immigration Officers very strict about such gap and/or lack of comprehensive medical insurance when they assess cases for naturalisation?
Thank you so much in advance for sharing your experiences.
Hi there,RedMoon wrote:Hi all,
I need to try to resurrect this thread a bit because I have just found out from UKBA that I have received my Registration Certificate as a student (before 20 June 2011). Your help with it would be greatly appreciated.
As a reminder (of what was said in an initial post) I have been a part-time worker during Uni, have quit this job to write a dissertation (so was only a student at this time) and 3 months later started a graduate job, in which I work in to this day.
I have a couple of questions regarding applicability of the transitional arrangements (that waive the requirement for CSI):
Annex B of Chapter 6 of the European Casework Instructions: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... iew=Binary states that: “These arrangements apply only to EEA nationals applying for permanent residence documentation on the basis of being a student where they have been issued with a registration certificate in that capacity before 20th June 2011.”
1) I am not clear what “on the basis of being a student” means: -does it mean being a student now (still being a student and applying while being a student -I am no longer a student but a worker now) or being a student during any period that I want to claim exercising Treaty Rights for? In other words: is it possible to exercise different types of treaty rights in different periods (e.g. worker then student then worker) and still qualify for these transitional arrangements?
2) Assuming that I will not qualify for the transitional arrangements because of failing in point 1). Do I have to provide evidence of CSI for the whole period when I was a student or only that I have CSI at the point of application? (I’ve heard of such interpretations so would like to clear that as I will have comprehensive CSI through my employer at the point of application).
3) Am I right that these transitional arrangements only apply to CSI and I will still need to show the evidence of sufficient funds for the three month period when I was only a student?
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
