Advice

Post by pra_S » Mon Dec 18, 2006 5:49 pm

Hi,

I'm from Sri Lanka, My WP (Job Specified) is ending on January, I tried to get renewed it but my company s not agreeing to apply once again. Is there any chance to apply as an Asylum Seeker, but I have given my finger print and documents for the initial inerview two years before. Please advice me on this... :cry:

As regards the WP matter, can you quickly find another employer in the UK who might want to apply for a WP for you?
Is there any chance to apply as an Asylum Seeker
That is a totally separate matter. Is there any particular reason why it would be unsafe for you to return to your country?

How long have you been in the UK?

pra S,

It would be helfpul if you detailed your UK immigration history. You mention biometrics collection and a previous interview - do you have a formal WP under the WP scheme or are you allowed to work by dispensation as your asylum case is being considered? Why does your employer not want to re-employ you?

Thank you for your kind help.

If I answer your both of your questions I was here since 2005 January, My visa is expiring at 2007 January. As you all know the country situation is getting worse day by day, I came here because The guerillas and the government forces tried to get me arrest several times.

My company is now having no contracts and their maintenanace projects also ending soon. So they are not intrested any more. With the short time of period its impossible to find a job which satisfies home office to grant me a WP. Regarding the WP i got is a standard one (Job Specified).

So what were the biometrics/ fingerprints for? Is this the requirement that commenced at the Colombo post then on to posts in East Africa? Did you get your WP visa in Sri Lanka?

Yes I got my visa in sri lanka, I gave my FIngerPrint in SL too, which is the basic requirement.

Is it possible a WP holder can seek asylum here in UK? :? :?
