Re: Got Redundant on Tier 2 Gen - need your help

Hello I am sorry for that. It's a stressful time indeed. Unfortunately, no one is immune from being made redundant. But when you are on a Tier 2 visa, it will affect your right to live in the UK. When you leave your employer, the HR will notify the Home Office. The Home Office will send you a curtai...

Re: Travelling abroad immediately after citizenship ceremony

You tell him the truth. You are British but your passport is not ready at the moment. Show the certificate. He will check on his computer and let you go.

Re: Victim of marriage fraud

Hello You can't do anything really. A divorce was pronounced. The wife was allowed to stay in the UK because she demonstrated that she was abused by her husband. Now, she has a residence that is totally independent from her husband. She has the right to marry. I understand that from the social point...

Re: Travelling abroad immediately after citizenship ceremony

Hello As Brazilians don't need a visa to enter the UK, you can go to your trip and return on your Brazilian passport. If you fear any question at the border, take a copy of your citizenship certificate. Actually, the fact that you are British doesn't prohibit you from using any other citizenship you...

Hello Yes his permanent residence is still valid after Jan 31st. You didn't leave long time ago (less than 2 years) so the permanent residency is not affected at this point. When you come back to the UK, get him to apply for the Settlement Scheme. He will get Settled normally. If he doesn't do anyth...

Re: After flro rejected can I apply student visa within UK?

Hello If you have no leave in the UK (= if you are illegal in the UK), you can't apply for a Tier 4 visa. Switching to Tier 4 within the UK is possible only if you hold a visa such as a Tier 2. https://www.gov.uk/tier-4-general-visa/switch-to-this-visa If you don't have any residence/visa in the UK ...

Re: Visa to other EU countries for non-EU citizen who is married to EU citizen both living in UK.

Hello

There were right. She needs a visa unless she has card written on it "Family Member of a Union Citizen"

The cards issued in the Settlement Scheme don't bear these words and don't allow visa free travel to Europe.

Re: Tower hamlets - Private Ceremony

Go there and get it sorted face-to-face if you can.

There is no point calling the councils for the ceremony, they never pick-up the phone and I don't think they return emails neither.

On face-to-face they are usually nice and helpful but often understaffed to take care of the phone.

Re: ILR or Citizenship for baby born in UK ?

I am not 100% sure for kids, someone else in this forum might know better, but I don't believe you can apply for citizenship if you doesn't have an indefinite leave. You see what I mean? I think the ILR step is not something you can avoid. When eligible, go and apply for it.

Also, a week later, I managed to open an account with HSBC. I just told them I am new to the UK and they re...

I never heard about any country in the world that accepts a copy, certified or otherwise, of a birth certificate. Birth Certificates must always be originals.

Re: Tourist visa for younger brother

You are welcome :) It's not an exact science. It's about maximising the odds in your favour. I have seen people with 10 years at the same job, excellent travel history... but declined a visitor visa just like that. There is always a risk of refusal when you apply for a visitor visa no mater what. Th...

Hello I don't recommend you apply for a visa for him at the moment. Young, no job, is a red flag and the risk of refusal is very high. If he is refused, next time he applies again, his application will be seen unfavourably even if the Home Office claims that each application is evaluated under its o...

She managed to return to the UK without any problem.
The Home Office is very slow to act. Unless her photo was in the front page of national newspapers, I don't think they would do anything about her. They would at one point, but it will take time.
