Re: Visa fee usage to another visa tye (ILR)

Also Zumba, Does vary application means that I don't want it to be processed. Does that sit well with them as we are trying to get the refund from a visa which we applied for? I mean they can clearly see that I have used the time and now also request a refund. Is that ok? Variation is a normal and ...

Re: Visa fee usage to another visa tye (ILR)

Thanks Zumba, So it is possible that my visa fee is refunded in case it is not processed by the time I apply for my ILR. May I know why is Seagul different in his opinion. Can I know any section of the document which gives us more clarity, thanks in advance. If you vary before a decision is made, y...

Re: Dependants Delayed Entry / ILR Qualifying Period

Thank you Zimba for your reply. If we will apply mid Nov, we will be then over our expiration date and my wife will be less than the qualifying period too. Is my understanding correct? Did you read what I said ???! I said apply before visa expiry and book/delay the appointment until mid-Nov when al...

Re: Visa fee usage to another visa tye (ILR)

Thanks Seagul for quick response. 1. From what I understand from your response is that it is not possible to use the paid fee of one visa category to use to ILR even if the visa is not processed. 2. May I know what should I do at that point of time while my visa is still under process of renewal an...

Re: Dependants Delayed Entry / ILR Qualifying Period

Only children do not have the 5-year residence requirement but your wife needs a min of '5 years minus 28 days' from her first visa issue date. Your child however will follow the path of the less-privileged parent. You are all eligible by mid-November. To avoid an extension, I suggest that you apply...

Re: ILR Application - tier 1 accelerated route

I was very very clear that the legal settled status as per UK laws is NOT the same definition as of a 'settled worker' under the Tier 1E rules. Under the Tier 1E rules currently, all EEA citizens (regardless of their legal pre settled/settled status) will be considered 'settled workers' and NO chang...

Re: tier one candidate doesn't accomplish the 6 months residency coz of cornovirus

There is no requirement that you spend a min of 6 months in the UK. Again it seems you not to understand the rules. The continuous residence only is required if you wish to apply for settlement after 5 years and if eligible. You may need to extend your visa more to complete 5 years of residence for ...

Re: Redundancy risks while ILR application is pending

Hi all, During the COVID the application process may take up to 6 months which is a rather long time period and things may change job wise... If while your application is pending the company decides to make you redundant (and gives you 2 months notice)? Will that affect your ILR application that is...

Re: ILR Application - tier 1 accelerated route

1. Under Tier 1E immigration rules , all EEA citizens have always been considered 'settled' workers for the grant of points towards any job creation. DO NOT confuse this definition with the actual definition of a 'settled person' under the law. The legal definition of a settled person in the UK who ...

Re: ILR refused, can I apply to another visa?

Did you apply for ILR within 14 days of your Tier 2 visa expiry and did you have 5 years of stay under Tier 2 by the end of your visa ?? If yes, then your ILR application should have succeeded. If you applied later or were not eligible, then that is a different story. You have been overstaying since...
