Re: ILR, how soon can you apply for premium appt

Hi CR001 Reading some past posts, I came across the below that suggest that given the short duration to fully qualifying, might be worth exploring the postal route. Conscious this post is roughly 3-4 years old. What do you think? https://www.immigrationboards.com/indefinite-leave-to-remain/10-years-...

Re: ILR, how soon can you apply for premium appt

Ohh no!! Would there be any use hiring a solicitor for this?

For PBS extension, Is it VAF10?

Re: ILR, how soon can you apply for premium appt

The second visa was an extension stamped in the UK

So would the case worker reject an application for this shortage or have there been instances in your experience where people have got through? If not, what are our options?

Re: ILR, how soon can you apply for premium appt

Thanks, although as I mentioned above, her present visa in her 2+3 PBS journey expires on 29.9.17!

First visa stamped for 1.11.12 - 17.9.14

Second visa stamped for 29.9.14 - 29.9.17

Is there going to be a problem or am I overthinking it now?

Re: ILR or BC for Tier 1 dependant

Thanks again. So evidence of finance would suffice but to clarify, no need for minimum account balance

Re: ILR or BC for Tier 1 dependant

@zimba88, many thanks. Is there a requirement for a minimum account balance within the bank statements?

I assume the form is Set O and there is no need for paying the health surcharge?

Re: Useful feedback

Re: P60s, Similar to your situation, I was able to provide all of mine win the qualifying period. However, as I was also able to provide my 5year route via visa stamps, they said the P60s could be optional. not sure if this is different for Tier 2 and Tier 1 routes although through my experience the...

I did think exactly the same but then wouldn't I have to hand in my passport as part of the naturalisation process?

Re: Working abroad after ILR - affect on BC - urgent!!

Thanks everyone for the prompt responses. Really appreciate it

I find it strange that UKBA would not even consider if an applicant is working for the same organisation but in a different country

Wouldnt a letter from my UK office suffice as enough proof for them?
