Can Tier 2 time and EEA time contribute to PR application?

Hi,

I was in the UK for two years under Tier 2.
Now I'm in the UK as an EEA resident.

Will I be able to combine both times in an application for permanent residency, or do you have to choose one category?

thanks

A family member of mine is in the United Kingdom on an EEA2 visa. Her husband is a dual Irish / Canadian citizen. They are both currently living in the UK. Her husband may take work abroad, which will mean her right to work in the UK will expire. If that does happen, and if she stops working, how lo...

Re: Leave to Remain refused - wrong CoS number - can I appea

Ok. So probably what has to happen is my employer needs to request a new unrestricted CoS, then assign that to me when they get that, then I have to apply for leave again - because an appeal will probably fail? How long does it typically take for a request for an unrestricted CoS to be approved? Why...

Re: Question about getting salary raise if on Tier 2

Ok, so is an Increment letter something that is within the SMS and that my employer has to take care of?

Can you should me where the documentation is on the Internet about an increment letter, and where it says it is possible to get a raise?

Sorry I can't find it in the RMLT.

Thanks so much!

Re: Question re: Visa renwal and salaray

Ok. So what is the process, does my employer apply for the visa extension, and then I apply through gov.uk?

Where did you get the information that my employer does not have to reduce my pay?
