PEO Sheffield - Variation from Tier 1 Ent to Set LR

Post by knucks » Thu Aug 25, 2016 10:44 pm

Dear Friends,

I want to share my recent experience for Set LR. I varied my Tier 1 Ent application to Set LR @ Sheffield PEO.

Appointment time was 11am, however reached bit early and ticket issued at 10:20, biometrics enrolled at 12:05. At 2:30 my ticket was called by the case worker. He explained that my application qualifies & I have provided the relevant information. It's a shame that he doesn't have my original passport or else he would have made the same day decision.

He further confirmed that he had requested my passport to be sent to him which can take up to 3 working days. Once he gets hold of my original passports, he will be able to conclude my case and send everything to my home address. He advised to wait for 10-14 days.

He also issued me the standard letter stating "I acknowledge the safe receipt of your application and your application is valid" etc.

Should you guys have further questions, please fire away !

Hopefully positive result
My friend varied FLR FP to SET LR and approval letter came 3 days later.


My questions.
1. Were you given any questionnaire? Any questions about Business etc?
2. What process to get the fee of Tier 1 Ent Etx refunded and IHS refund, how long will it take if at all refunded?
3.Did the Case worker asked anything about the dependant application as you have varied did the dependant application goes to hold automatically?

1. No questionnaire was given as it was my Tier 1 Ent initial application. Further, I do not have any adverse history. (5 years student, 2 years psw, 3 years work permit. Unfortunately my Tier 2 sponsor was revoked and I was short by 3 months.
2. I was told it can take up to 90 days but normally happens after 14 days.
3. He advised that he cannot confirm anything on the dependents application as it's currently with the other case worker. He simply said that he will post their documents back to my home address.

In relation to the above, I believe he is going to cancel the whole application for my dependents and I will have to reapply their further leave within 28 days.

His knucks.
Just wondering what happened with IHS refund.

Was the Ent dependant application was cancelled and docs received in the post quickly after you went to PEO.
Thanks

Dear friend,

No refunds received yet.

Still waiting for the decision on my Set LR application. They will cancel the dependents application once they make the decision on my case. I cannot even vary my dependents application to flr m as my wife doesn't has the A1 language test yet. I will have to submit a valid application for the dependent within 28 days and 11 days have already passed :/

I was told that the decision can take up to 2 weeks.
