I will draw your attention to the Immigration Rules Part 6a - 245HF (d) (iv) and (f), which clearly states the minimum ILR salary is not applicable ONLY if the CoS was issued for a SOL for the most recent grant of leave.ifahds wrote: ↑Thu Nov 28, 2019 12:32 pmSant, you are exempt from the minimum salary threshold.
You need to have over £25,700 salary and you need only one-month payslip.
CR001, advice on "Your COS is a non-shortage one" in incorrect. There is no such things in rules.
Leave your dependants visas at it is and get ILR for yourself when you complete 5 years.
(d) The pay in (c)(ii)(2) or (3) above must:
(i) be basic pay (excluding overtime);
(ii) only include allowances where they are part of the guaranteed salary package and would be paid to a local settled worker in similar circumstances;
(iii) not include other allowances and benefits, such as bonus or incentive pay, employer pension contributions, travel and subsistence (including travel to and from the applicant’s home country);
(iv) not include the value of any shares the applicant has received as an employee-owner in exchange for some of their UK employment rights;
(v) be at least equal to the appropriate rate for the job as stated in the Codes of Practice in Appendix J; and
(vi) be at least:
(2) £35,500 if the date of application is on or after 6 April 2018,
(3) £35,800 if the date of application is on or after 6 April 2019,
(4) £36,200 if the date of application is on or after 6 April 2020,
(5) £36,900 if the date of application is on or after 6 April 2021,
(6) £37,900 if the date of application is on or after 6 April 2022,
(7) £38,800 if the date of application is on or after 6 April 2023,
(8) £40,100 if the date of application is on or after 6 April 2024,
subject to (e), (f) and (g) below.
(e) Sub-paragraph (d)(vi) above does not apply if the continuous 5-year period in (b) includes a period of leave as:
(i) a Work Permit Holder, or
(ii) a Tier 2 Migrant, where the Certificate of Sponsorship which led to that grant of leave was assigned to the applicant by their Sponsor before 6 April 2011,
(f) Sub-paragraph (d)(vi) above does not apply if the Certificate of Sponsorship which led to the applicant’s most recent grant of leave was for a job which:
(i) appears on the list of PhD-level occupation codes as stated in the codes of practice in Appendix J,
(ii) appears on the Shortage Occupation List in Appendix K,
(iii) previously appeared on the Shortage Occupation List, as shown by Tables 3 and 4 in Appendix K, at any time when the applicant:
(1) had leave as a Tier 2 (General) Migrant, in which they were sponsored for the applicable job, either with the same or a different employer, during the continuous 6-year period ending on the date of application for indefinite leave to remain, or
(2) was assigned a Certificate of Sponsorship for that job, either with the same or a different employer, which led to a grant of leave as a Tier 2 (General) Migrant during the continuous 6-year period ending on the date of application for indefinite leave to remain.
That is correct as per immigration rules. If you were assigned an SOC and anytime during the continuous 6-year period (ending on the date of application for indefinite leave to remain) your SOC ever appeared on the shortage list, then you are exempt from the min salary threshold requirementLokez21 wrote: ↑Fri Feb 14, 2020 4:49 pmAs an update, I've applied for ILR anyway. It was bit of a risk. I've been successful. Due to get BRP soon.
It doesn't matter it was old or new COS. The job has to be in Shortage Occupants List in the last 6 years.
There's a reason there are shortage of workers for the job, the gov doesn't want to make it Very Shortage Of Workers, sending home already working people and screwing up the organisations. That is not a great idea.
Good luck to the future COS added to SOL, am I eligible for ILR holders.
