Hi Sunita,

I don't think they are asking a latest letter from your previous employer about the absences. If you have a letter dated after the absences, it should be okay. This is not for a proof of residence or something which need to be upto date.

The letter about absences is a fact based on past and will be same even if you get another fresh letterwith latest date unlike for the proof of address which need to be latest. In such cases for proof of address, there will be a possibility where you can be at one address on 2012 but may not be at same address in 2013, hence latest is required.

And as such UKBA does not ask the date to be latest for this document where as in some cases they ask the date to be not older than one month.

Hope this makes sense.

Hi
I know I am rushing up things and its too early to worried about but I just want to conform this before so that I can start looking for other options. I came to UK 2005 October as a student I done my Diploma, Bachelors and my Masters completed in 2011 March.

I applied for my PSW and granted from 2011 March to March 2013 and this time period only literally I was out of UK for more than 30 days. From 6th July 2011 to 04 April 2012 something around 310 days .

I applied for my tier 2 WP and waiting for the decision, So if Apply for ILR in 2015 this huge time gap will be a problem for me. I am just wondering.

I appreciate the time you taken to read and thanks in advance for your replies
Thanks
Joe

The other 130 days as Tier 1 doesnt need any proof unles they were compelling or compassionate.

There are hundreds of such posts in this forum answered by Gurus and moderators. Please search and read them
If the 32 days absence was with the previous employer does he still need to provide the letter? if yes what is the course of action if the previous employer doesn't exist anymore?

Yes he/she needs to provide a letter. If the employer doesnt exist, provide the employer information and provide a self explanation for the leave period. If the employer doesnt exist, then UKBA can verify this by looking in Companies house data.
I'm just trying to help !

Re: ILR Medical supporting letter

seba wrote:hello experts,
I have a long break in one of my previous 5 years slot(nearly 270 days at a stretch) except that all my other years break are very minimum like less than 30-40 days. I am planning to apply PEO in April.

1) How much probability of getting my case success?
2) I have got my surgery and my mom's surgery in my long break time. So I am providing my medical docs for both situations. Will that add any advantages to my application?

3) If I provide my medical records and letter from the hospital, does the letter need to be current dated or 1 month before my application date or is that Ok if I submit the hospital letter dated at the time of my treatment( say 2.5 years old date)

Your answers and suggestions would help a lot to decide.

Thanks,

considering you are on Tier 1 then try to spread the 270 days across two years making sure that each consective years should have less than 180 days. Please work out as it should work as per the new amendement of UKBA rules stated above. All the supporting letters will be good if kept.

so does this mean we are seeing all applicants having >=180 absence within 1 years or more refused for ILR??


but we didnt know this rule will be interpretted in this way during the 5 years period??? anyone went to court because of this?? thanks
The Rule has been improved, massively improved; perhaps the only positive change in the last 6 years brought about by this statement of changes HC760, most thankfully - recognizing the needs of the modern global world.
At least I cannot understand what is it that you want to go to court for. sorry if I missed a point.

Absent for 500 days, not exceeded 180

Post by rajhcol » Wed Jun 05, 2013 11:51 pm

Dear members,

I am on tier 1 general. Its been 5 yrs now.. I was out of UK for the whole sum of 500 days.. But never exceeded 180 days in one year subject to the date of application. DO I need to take any supporting documents with me..

My first visit to India after getting my initial HSMP was of 160 days. It was due to business/health reasons.. rest all the visits never exceeded 90 days..

It was 85 + 85 then in next year again 85+85
Total 170 + 170 + 160 = 500 days.

DO I need to take any letters with me..

I am going to ILR at PEO next week.. If any one could answer soon, it would be really appreciated.. I will be sharing my PEO exp by the end of next week.

Cheers..

Thanks a lot

Raj.

Hi db83,

Congrats on your successful ILR application.

I'm writing this in response to your reply on "Tue Feb 19, 2013 11:56 am".

"32 days absence acknowledged by the employer as annual leave/.
The other 130 days as Tier 1 doesn't need any proof unles they were compelling or compassionate.

There are hundreds of such posts in this forum answered by Gurus and moderators. Please search and read them"

In my case, I came to UK on work permit on Jul-2007 and got my tier 1 in Nov2008. I have 7 days of absences between Jul-2007 and Nov-2008 whilst I was on work permit. These seven days were my personal holidays. I left this employer in 2009 and its been 4 years now. Not sure, how it works to request this letter from that employer whom I left nearly 4 years ago ? It is an Indian MNC IT company. Appreciate your suggestions.

Dear other members,

Appreciate your thoughts. If there are any existing forums where there is a similar situation , please guide.

Thanks

Absence <180 without evidence!

Post by Sarfi » Tue Oct 01, 2013 2:36 pm

Hi CS95TDG;

I came to UK in Dec-2008 on Tier 1G for a few day & then re-enterd in July-2009 for a few days again. I am in UK continously since Jan-2010 as an employee; please advise that absence from August to Jan-2012 (167 dyas) can be counted towards continous 5 years without of any evidence to apply for ILR in July-2014 or I sould wait till Jan-2015. What is email to ask settlemt ops team.Thanks

Depending on the person you speak to, you may unfortunately get 'N' number of different answers, to the same question! I always find email correspondence to be the better option. My motto is however, to believe what I'm told in response to a question, if the answer seems logical and fits in with the published immigration rules.
