I am Tier 1 PBS dependent. I have recently got my Tier 1 PBS visa extension approved and the relevant dates are as follows:
1. Date of approval for initial Tier 1 visa (date of 1st entry into UK)---6/1/2016
2. Date Tier 1 visa expired -----5/5/2019
3. Date Tier 1 visa extended-----12/6/2019 until 12/6/2021
I have the following questions:
1.I wonder how the absence of not more than 180 days rule apply to me??
2.Does it mean that this continuous residence rule is applicable to me only for the period from 12/6/2019 to 5/1/2021 (the date I entitle to ILR application) since the extension is granted after 11/1/2018??
3.Or it is not applicable to me at all as i am entitle to ILR application on 6/1/2021 instead of visa extension?
Please advise and look forward to hearing from you.
Yesa. if i maintain 185 days or more, presence in UK under (1) above, then I am safe?
You should count the period backwards still in 12 months steps but ignore all absences before 12/6/2019b. Period (2) above is less than 12 months, so how many days should I present in the UK?
If the child is over 18 then they need liuk and B1 English. GCSE and a levels is not accepted.benhuang wrote: ↑Sat Oct 12, 2019 5:50 pmDear Zimba,
In addition to the above question, i have one more question to clarify.
My wife (main applicant), both myself and kid are dependents. I understand that my wife and myself both graduated in the UK, so we do not have to go through the English test for IRL application purposes. My kid did GCSE exams including English as a subject and now he is doing A-level in the uk, does he need the English test for IRL application?
Looking forward to hearing from you.

1.Go to Gov.uk IRL application website to register and fill up the application form. (i do not have the exact web address, those who know, please share the web address. Thanks)
Google SET(O) form and take it from there.
2.After the application form in (1) above is completed, submit and pay the IRL fees,
(Note: only pay the IRL fees, health surcharge fees are no longer applicable)
What is IRL? No maintenance or IHS for ILR.
3.To book an appointment to provide biometrics at https://www.ukvcas.co.uk
Yes. Once you fill and submit the form you ll be naturally guided what to do next.
4.relevant documents can then be uploaded to ukvcas before the appointment date
4.1 Regarding uploading of documents, the ukvcas web page is structured as follows (the same as the application for Tier 1 extension):
As long as pertinent evidence is uploaded it doesn’t matter under which category.
There are no changes in law planned!!! What rules apply to the ilr applications is what is current on the date of application. Many lawyers don't even know about the most basic or important changes, even some rules that came into effect in 2014!!However, my other worry is if i do not appoint a solicitor to help me to monitor the changes in law
