Re: BRP number not written above immigration officer stamp

Happened to me, purely as I was chatting to the officer and he forgot. I called the airport team the next day and they said it was fine.

Yes you are tax resident if you work in the UK and are present for over 6 months in the year.

Tier 2 to ILR query

Hi all, I switched from Tier 4 to Tier 2 in country in August 2016. My Tier 2 was issued 24.08.16 and until then I was working for the college where I was a student (much less than 20 hrs a week etc). I recently saw that the leaving date for that job was 30.08.16, so technically I was employed elsew...

Poor quality passport stamp?

I've just checked my passport and a recent entry stamp is very poor quality: the ink is super faint and the year looks like 2018, not 2019! Obviously am worried about potential implications for ILR. Is this likely to raise any issues? Shall I just keep the ticket and boarding pass or go back to the ...

Council Tax single occupancy discount and Tier 2

Hi all,

Just checking whether those with No Recourse... are allowed to claim the single occupancy discount for council tax? I think yes, but want to double check.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Admin error on HO side or not ?

Yes that seems like an error, you are eligible to be on Tier 2 until 13/03/2022.

Write to them, there's no harm in asking.

Re: Admin error on HO side or not ?

What were the dates for both of your COSs and the dates on the BRPs? I got 6 years exactly for example, moving from Tier 4 to Tier 2 within the UK. First Tier 2 issued 24.08.16, second finishing on 24.08.22, though my second COS was until 23.08.22. I assume they gave that one extra day as they could...

Re: Time Spent Outside UK - Holiday?

If you're basing your application on a 5 year category, you only need to account for 5 years of absences.

Re: Tier 2 to ILR issue

If it is an annual increment there is no need to report via SMS.

It sounds like yours was a performance based increase though, not an annual increment.

Re: Time Spent Outside UK - Holiday?

I am quite sure the "not the same amount..." option refers to fluctuating income. So someone might get 1500£ one month and 2500£ the next. It probably doesn't mean annual rises.

Re: Absence wording

Yes and no. I was working on the laptop while abroad with my family. My employer therefore allowed me not to take annual leave for this short trip.

I am wondering if they should add "working remotely" or whether their wording is enough?

Hi all, I wanted to see what others think. My former employer has given me an absence letter with two types of absences: work-related and annual leave. One of my absences was paid and authorised absence while working remotely abroad (due to family bereveamenet). It was only 6 full days and I plan to...

Re: Truncated name on BRP issue: please advise

They scan the card at the border so presumably will see the full name.

To be safe, if their response was in email format, carry that with you.

Yes you do. Give your employer tbe dates and ask them to add them to the letter.
