Re: ILR Skilled Worker or Global Talent Dependent - Question

You do not need to quote the rules to the UKVI, they are the ones writing and enforcing the rules.

Re: 10 year ILR route with more than 180 days gap

These transitional arrangements preserve the position that continuous residence will be broken if an applicant has been absent from the UK for more than 184 days at any one time or for more than a total of 548 days overall, where that absence started before 11 April 2024 . This means that: •any sin...

Re: Inquiry on ILR Application Strategies for NHS Worker and Family

You can apply for ILR and this will not affect your dependants at all. They are not required to switch to the family route at all and can remain/extend under the skilled worker dependent route as normal, even after your ILR. Note that your son will follow the immigration path of your spouse and will...

Re: ILR Skilled Worker or Global Talent Dependent - Question

First of all, do NOT tag your question on other posts ! "Tier 1 or Global Talent dependants" is correct. Under the GTV rules for ILR, the visa route of a dependant is unimportant . Her ILR eligibility is based on your previous status as a GTV holder and she will apply to get ILR via the same route. ...

Re: Tier 2 Dependent ILR eligibility query (outside UK more than 180 days during covid)

I think it is very unlikely as that is close to two years of absence from the UK. The argument is that between December 2019 and September 2021, it was almost impossible for her to return which I think will not be accepted. I remember many did not travel because they did not want to pay for tests or...

Re: ILR for dependent 10 year residency

She can use her degree then. For SET(O) her qualifying period is the last 5 years and you do not need to prove anything.
She can immediately apply to naturalise after ILR, when you get your British citizenship.

There is no difference. Either route can be used. I suggest the dependant route via SET(O). What English language evidence she provided before? What test and when was that ?

Re: ILR & eGates - can they change visa status? And how to check?

This says that the immigration officer may authorise someone who can obtain a leave to remain to go through eGate in order to obtain leave to remain under said categories but someone who has already obtained a leave to remain(e.g. ILR) does not need to obtain anything per se. What am I missing?

Yes.

Re: ILR Eligibility with absence

What do you mean by each year ?? The rolling calculation under absence rules requires that you should not have been absent from the UK for more than 180 days in any 365-day period, so nothing specific to a calendar year. Do you have more than 180 days of absence in any 365-day period?

Thank you for your response, it is much appreciated.

Have you come across any cases recently where the child's ...
