Tier 1 Ent ILR application - home office asks for interview

Post by Tritan » Fri Mar 29, 2019 7:13 pm

Hi,

Please I need advice. Home office called today and gave 2 days notice for an interview. I applied for my ILR on 19th Jan using the new system.
I haven’t come across anyone being interviewed at this stage of ILR, I’m only aware of the interview at extension stage.
Advice please from senior members and anyone who has had a similar experience.

Thanks

First time I heard about interview on ILR (tier 1 ent )base , are you on 2000000 or 50000 ? And where they called you for interview ? Your own office or home office place ?

That is strange. This is something new. Seems like HO has started interviewing ILR applications now. 🥴

Were you interviewed at extension stage?
How long did your extension take?
Is your company registered at home?

You got you extension after 2 years delay? It is really surprising that HO called for an interview even if you were interviewed at extension stage.

You should prepare yourself the same way as you prepared at extension time.

Do you think why HO would interview you? You know your situation best. Any unusual activity?

When was your extension approved?

Keep us posted!! Please let us all know how the interview goes.

Goodluck!!

Hi,
Its really strange, after first interview they gave you extension accepting that everything is fine and after few months again conducting second interview. I am really worried after reading all forum and new policy guidance. Please update us after interview.

Looks like you are the first case need interview at ILR stage.
Oh gosh, can they work hard at Brexit instead?
Entrepreneurs are all busy at work. :roll:

Summary for OP
1) Feb 2017 applied extension and Oct 2017 Approved
2) An interview for extension was conducted during this time (Feb 2017 - Oct 2017)

Now, they need an interview for ILR and asking the same stupid questions.

OP is not active since last visit on 30th March. No one else has reported an interview so far other than OP so lets see how authentic it is or is it just a one off.

This is really strange. When is your interview and where. It’s really worrisome they are asking for interview, moreso Tristan the former didn’t come back to update us on the outcome of his interview.

Kindly update us when you get it done. All the best mate.

Seems like HO has started taking interviews for ILR cases now 🤯

Were you interviewed at initial or extension stage?

How long did your extension take?

When did you apply for ILR?

Applied online in September 2018.

Still waiting.

Received letter asking about the whereabout of my UK born son in November 2018. Responded that I would apply for his British passport after I get ILR.

Received complex letter in January 2019.
