Tier1 General Dependent -ILR - English Language and Life in UK test ( Please help)

Post by neels111 » Thu Jan 18, 2018 1:24 pm

Hi,

I am applying for my wife's ILR soon and need help on English language requirement.

I as main applicant already got ILR in Oct 2016 but my wife ILR application was refused at that time because of 5 year requirement.

Do we need to provide any new documentation for English Language requirement ? , She got her Entry clearance and subsequent two Tier(Gen) visa extension based on her qualification listed on UKBA point based calculator ( PG degree taught in India ) . Do we need to provide any new documentation for English Language ? as rules have changed recently and there is no clarity on this , need this clarification.

During her last ILR application in Oct 2016, she passed the Life in UK test exam , hopefully that certificate is still valid ? or she need to clear same exam again ?

Request members to help if you can , given application fees is so high, can't take the risk of losing money again.


Thanks in advance.

She needs UK NARIC if using a foreign degree. Tier 1 General Dependent applicants did not need to meet the English requirement, so there was no requirement for it in those applications.

Thanks a lot for your reply, appreciate your quick help. She has acquired MBA in India so foreign degree but she is applying as my Dependent under Tier1 General PBS. SET(O) form does ask for "Knowledge of language and life in the UK under Section 4 - ( on page 15) " , are you sure dependent need not require any English language ? because i always attached her degree qualification during all her Tier1 General Dependent visa extension ? if that is case i am relieved :) , is there any link which point to this and suggest same ?
( apologies for asking too much )

You have not read what I wrote carefully. I said the PBS Dependents were not and are still not required to evidence meeting the English requirement, so submitting evidence in the past is irrelevant.

She must submit NARIC or B1 or UK degree to meet the English requirement for ILR.

Hi neels111, out of curiosity, why was your wife not able to get her ILR in the 2016? Did she not complete the 5 years during the time of application?

The user has clearly stated that in his first post.

For history, read the users previous topic on his misinterpretation of the rules at that time.

I am about to make an ILR application for my Tier1 (G) dependent wife and looking for advise on 5 years requirement. I main applicant already got my ILR in Oct 2016.

She came to UK on 29 March 2013, therefore she will complete 5 years on 29 March 2018 , I can apply for her ILR any day after 1 March 2018 ( 28 days before 5 year period) ? is that understanding is correct ?

In Year 2015 - Absent from UK for 66 days
In Year 2016 - Absent from UK for 37 days
In Year 2017 - Absent from UK for 32 days
In Year 2018 - Absent from UK for 38 days
-----------------

Total absents from UK in last 5 years are 206 days , please can someone confirm such absents are fine and don't impact her change of getting ILR ?
As i already refused her ILR once and lost significant amount of money, I'll grateful if experts in this forum can review the above detail and advise me.


Thanks
Neel
