You do get the cancelled passport back, with a 'revoked' stamp.

Tier 2 for promotion?

hi all, a question on behalf of a friend: she is currently on a Tier 2 visa in a shortage occupation. there is a possibility of her getting a promotion shortly. the new designation will be 'Senior' and the payrise will be in the region of 10-15%. will she need to get a new Tier 2 visa in order to ac...

addresses

hi,

quick and perhaps trivial question, but when listing residence addresses of the past five years, do we start with the current address? or (since the current address is already asked for on the prior page) do we list only previous addresses?

thanks!

phish, a points assessment has NOTHING to do with visa refusals. if you had applied for and been denied an E.C., then yes. but merely not meeting the criteria is totally unrelated. i mean, does every PBS wannabe get the points? no. so are they then to consider themselves visa rejectees for the rest ...

I must say, I am pleasantly surprised by these relatively modest hikes. The £15 increase for single nationality applications, for example, is actually very decent - if you consider that inflation is running at 2.9% (Dec '09), the minimum justifiable fee hike could have been £18.56. And of course, ...

i don't think it's necessary to disclose anything not asked for. in my amateur opinion, this is an 'internal' issue with your professional body, whereas UKBA is more concerned about any criminal or civil matter which has reached the UK courts.
