Re: Losing job

There is no requirement to have a job or business during the application for ILR.

Just make sure to retain proof of the most recent earnings from the job before leaving (P60, P45, payslips, bank statements).

Re: Working from overseas during Covid19 on a Global Talent visa

In my opinion.. 1) Yes, you can start working remotely from other country. You do not even have to wait for Stage 1 decision and you do not need a visa for that. You'll probably work as a self-employed person in your current country of residence, but you'll just get paid from the UK. You'll have to ...

Re: Copy or original of rec letter

Since all documents are submitted digitally, "original" letter will be indistinguishable from a scanned copy.

Scanned letters with live signatures are OK!

Re: Global Promise on BRP?

I confirm that "Talent / Promise" category is not mentioned on the BRP. This is OK!

Everything is pretty much the same between these two categories, except the settlement time period.

Re: What happens if the allocated quota is full when you apply?

1) It never happened in the past.
2) In theory, you should not be able to submit stage 1 application if quota has been reached.

Don't worry about it. Apply when you're ready.

Re: What to do after applying to Tech Nation?

Now you have to wait for:

1) Email from Home Office mentioning UTR number.
2) Email from Home Office with outcome of stage 1 application.

There is no need to send paper documents anywhere. I did this, but multiple forum users and Tech Nation itself confirmed that it's not necessary.

Re: Has anyone been successful to get endorsed after a review?

Yes, I know at least one person who got endorsement after review. It is possible.

But you have to look into reasons of initial rejection. Can you give explanations without adding more supporting documents? If so, feel free to apply for review. There is nothing to lose except your time.

Re: More than 2 qualifying criteria?

You'll have to select two qualifying criteria during application process.

There is no point aiming for 3 or 4 criterias. Just choose two and make them as strong as possible.

Re: Tier 1 Stage 2 Travel Questions

Well, since you've used super premium service, your application should be rejected in the next 24h. You'll be able to re-apply outside of the UK using the same endorsement letter.

Application fee will be lost, but NHS surcharge can be refunded.

You should really stop worrying about things you cannot change. :)

If OVRO officer says it's okay, it's probably okay. I think what really matters for HO is that your current certificate is up to date.

Just get one more monthly salary payment from your current employer confirmed by payslip, and you should be fine.

If HO approves your application, take your police certificate to OVRO or local station, tell your story and update information. If HO de...

I think it's very generous. It means that you can switch to another IT role and still get the ILR, if you want to.

For Tier 2 ICT you should have a letter from HO clearly stating start date and end date of your leave. Expiry date in your BRP should match the last day of your leave, but issue date might not match the first day of your leave, beware. For C-Student.. "British Embassy in Moscow" should be ok.
