Congrats, Camilla.

If you can share your situation, and also the process you took for ILR application, it would be very helpful in this forum.

Is this removed 60 days policy only applicable for EU citizens? How about non-EU citizen?

Thanks!

It is for NON EU citizens on the UK immigration route not the EEA/EU route.

So.I have a question related to 60 days period. Is this 60 days counted from last day with old sponsor and start date with new sponsor? Or any other dates like visa applied date, BRP card issue date, cos date?
My scenario:
22 dec 2015 was last date and joining date with new sponsor is 07-March-2016. So I have more than 60 days gap. I got my BRP with issue date as 15-Feb-2016. COS assigned on 28-Jan-2016
Does anyone have idea?
Thanks for suggestions

Hi twcbbr,

As it is mentioned in the first post, the rule is removed all together. So, it doesn't matter when you got COS. You won't be refused ILR due to employment gap. Hope it helps.

Home Office have just updated the rules and as expected 245AAA(b) is removed completely (no provision for old or new CoS - everybody benefits).

Dear Mengo, thank you for sharing this revolutionary news! I just want to clarify your interpretation. Is my understanding correct that new rule will apply regardless of the date of issuance of the CoS and Tier 2 Visa.

My latest and current visa was issued in 2015 and expires in Sep 2018, so I would like to confirm if I need to extend it again to be eligible for ILR (under new rules with 60+days gap).

Your advice will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Sergino,

As I mentioned above, the rule is removed all together - doesn't matter when you got your Tier 2 visa. Your ILR application won't be refused due to 60 days gap. Thanks
