T2 General Indefinite Leave to Remain

Post by szfahad » Tue Jun 18, 2019 2:02 pm

I applied for a Super Priority Service on 12 June and got a response in few hours saying that "my application raises exceptionally complex issues" and they cannot make my decision in the given service standard time.

However they will make a decision as soon as possible.

I have not heard back anything until to date. When my documents got uploaded, the lady told me that I will get a response within today or tomorrow as my documents were properly uploaded and verified.

I am a little confused and would like to know if somebody else has applied in the same category and awaiting similar kind of results of HO?

I have been with the same employer for the last 5 years and have a very clear history. However I did get a refusal while in the UK back in 2010 and I went back to my country and came back in 2011 again on a student visa and since then I have obtained a PSW work permit and then the Tier 2 General.

Should I be worried about anything or when should I contact the HO. Also will they refund me the priority service fee.

Thanks.

Many applicants across all visa categories get this email when HO cannot make a decision within the 24 hours.

What is your full UK immigration history with all relevant visa start and expiry dates??

I came to UK back in 2007 on a student visa. Got one extension while in the UK. When I applied for the 2nd extension, I was told that my course is starting after 30 days so I will have to apply from Home Country. I left the UK after HO handed over me the Passport from their London Branch.

I double checked that I have not overstayed and I was given verbal confirmation of this. I was also advised to re apply for student visa if I wish to.

I did that back in 2010 and was granted a student visa from Pakistan on the same course but at a different university. I came back in 2011 after a gap of 10 months and studied and got my graduate degree. Then I went to apply for my PSW which was also granted. While I was on PSW, I got an offer and since 2014 I have been on Tier 2 General Visa with the same employer.

Also, since I love travelling, I have taken holidays and on average it was more than 30 days per calender year. Since I had good relation with my employer, all of my holidays were paid and with approval.

Points to note:
- I did have a county court judgment back in 2016 for non payment of debt which I settled in 2018.
- My 2010 student visa refusal
- Travel more than 30 days per year outside UK
- Salary was increased by £13,000 in 2018/19 compare to 2017/18
- My employer sponsorship license was suspended due to lack of documentary records on his part but it was later re-instated once we provided all the documentation through a solicitor.

Is there something I should be worried about? Should I be contact HO or stay quiet? I dont want any negativity because of me communication with them.

Thanks.

I was given a bigger rise than everybody else. The issue date was 20 June 2014. The SOC code is 2421. The pay rise was given at the start of last tax year and it is still the same to date.
