Re: ILR Application

Thank you so much for the reply.

I looked at the sample letter and it says to mention about business trips abroad which were take to perform your duties.

I want to know should I mention the holiday trips I took to other parts of the works?

Unrestricted CoS

A company can assign unrestricted CoS at anytime or it goes through the same process as restricted CoS i.e. apply before 5th of the month and is processed on the first working Monday after?
