ILR QUERIES TIER 2general

Post by kikhan » Thu Feb 07, 2019 12:17 am

Hi,
I have following queries
I work as doctor in NHS
me and my family tier2 visa was stamped for 3yrs in May 2014 outside uk and i entered UK in July 2014 with family and i got another 3 yr extension tilljune 2020 with same employer and category.
1- when can i apply for ILR?
2-when can my family (as dependants) apply for ILR?
3-my visa is till june 2020, how late can I apply once i am eligible for ILR?
4- there is a discrepency in my monthly salary and bank statments. Say for example my salary is 3500 pm and incoming amount in my bank statement is 1500-2000 more. This is because i got extra pay due to locums with same employer, or i ve been paid back for my educational courses and travel expenses( all these incoming are there on bank statements stating that they are coming from same employer but do not say why). Could that raise an issue with HO?
Thanks

1- does parking fine needs to be mentioned in convictions and penalties section
Its better to mention it. While it will not impact the outcome, not mentioning may lead UKVI to think that you are hiding facts.

2- does driving in bus lane fine needs to be mentioned also
Same as above.

3- i could not find the option to pay for premium/urgent service ( decision within 24 hrs)
You will get the payment option once you submit the application.

4- is it easy to get appointments for document check, upload and biometrics in Newcastle or is it a long wait.
No idea about Newcastle centre, others may comment. Generally, you will get free appointments within 7-10 days. Paid ones will be quicker.

5. How many payslips and bank statements are MANDATORY to submit?
The checklist states that you only need to submit the last month's payslip and bank statement which shows the salary credit.

Thanks for the replies.
Can i ask that one of my friends submitted his application online last month but the option for premium/ urgent service never came up. He called helpline who said that the payment option will cone after submission. This never happened.
Consequently the option did not come up even when he paid for routine service.now he is stuck up and has to wait for 6 months. I am worried that it may not happen to me also. According to hom we cant go back once payment is done. Can someone help please.
And is there any link for guidance for ILR by the HO?
Thanks

What visa did your friend hold? Not all categories can apply for super premium.

Then he selected the service incorrectly or missed the option or didn't want to pay the extra £800.

And they don't take 6 months, it is about 8 weeks for standard route.

thanks a lot for clarifying this.
Sorry a few more questions:
1- If I submit my application online and do not find the option for the premium/urgent service, can I go back or the application will be locked?
2- I am applying with my family (wife, 3 kids under 18) what extra documents for proof of living will be required . and are these documents required for wife only or for all the kids?
3- is there any guidance document on internet from UKVI etc?
4-all the documents s will be uploaded , do they still needs to be stamped like bank statements, pay slips, utility bills etc?
5- i completed a test application and the check list says specifically to submit only 01 payslip and 01 bank statement, will that suffice?
6- a few clarifications on application questions
a- HAVE YOU PREVIOUSLY LIVED IN A COUNTRY OUTSIDE UK INCLUDING YOUR COUNTRY OF BIRTH? my question is that I lived with my parents in Saudia Arabia 1985-1992 and than on job 2012-2014. I had many visits in between to back home, Pakistan but I cant provide exact details, is it mandatory and do I need to provide all the passports etc dating back 1985 onwards?
b-WHAT EVIDENCE WILL YOU PROVIDE TO SUPPORT THE REASONS FOR ALL ABSCENCES FROM UK AND CROWN DEPENDENCIES? I went on annual leave twice outside UK on Annual Leave leave just for 10 days and 2 days on medical conferences. so what evidence should I provide. I can only provide tickets, will that be ok?


thanks again for the help
i will keep on bothering you gurus

6a. They are asking for countries "lived" and not "visited". For visit, there is a separate question to list down any absences from UK in last 5 years. Yes, you need to provide exact details from your birth. Your passport should have entry stamps whenever you entered a country, so you can collate it. Yes, its mandatory.

6b. The best option is to provide a letter from employer confirming your leaves. There is a sticky thread on the first page of this forum with a template. That should work.

Hi can someone reply on my question 1-5 please.
one more question
my wife changed her surname after marriage in 2002 but all her documents have got the same post marriage name especially since we are in UK.
do I need to mention that she used a different surname in past. my only concern is that we have no official document which says that she changed her name.
again i cant find any guidance on ILR on internet

You need to complete the information if the form asks for it, i.e. any other names or name at birth.

Presumably you have your marriage cert which indicates change in name :idea: :idea:

There is no requirement to prove her other name if her passport is in her married name.

1- If I submit my application online and do not find the option for the premium/urgent service, can I go back or the application will be locked?
No, it will be locked and you cannot change it. You will have to create a new application in case any updates are required.

2- I am applying with my family (wife, 3 kids under 18) what extra documents for proof of living will be required . and are these documents required for wife only or for all the kids?
You will need cohabitation proofs. Documents in both your names or individual names with the same address covering last 2 years. It could be things like council tax letter, TV license, driving license copy, Electricity bills, Water bills, bank account statements, some letters from NHS and so on.

4-all the documents s will be uploaded , do they still needs to be stamped like bank statements, pay slips, utility bills etc?
As long as the statement show the name and address, stamping is not reqd. I did not do it for mine.

5- i completed a test application and the check list says specifically to submit only 01 payslip and 01 bank statement, will that suffice?
Yes, it expects only the last payslip and the last months bank statement showing the credit of the same amount. That will suffice.

super priority service

Post by kikhan » Thu Jun 20, 2019 6:54 pm

Hi,
I completed the forms for my family and just before signing the declaration I got the printout of the application.
this showed 2408.20 £ for every applicant. I cant see any option for super priority service.
will that come later or i HAVE DONE SOME MISTAKE.
I am applying on Tier 2 General category.
another question if i tick the declaration and tick continue, it should go to payment but if needed would i be able to retrieve the application or it is one way ticket?

Thanks
