Re: Tier 2 Extensions NHS

Understandably they increase the threshold every year. Home Office illustrates the thresholds until 2022 as far as I remember.
You just have to +5 from where your teir 2 started and see how much you earn in 5 years time

Correct me if I'm wrong

Re: Tier 2 Extensions NHS

My understanding is that if you stay in the same trust, you just need to extend. You don't have to worry about the salary threshold. But you need to think about how to get ILR when your tier 2 expires in a further 3 years time. You can only be on tier 2 for max 6 years and you have to reach a salary...

Re: Minimum Salary requirement for Tier 2 General Visa

I cannot remember off my head how they define it. But I found this link quite useful. If they say below 26 as new entrant or otherwise experienced. I would advise you to check with a solicitor for some advice. Are you first time applicant and tier 4 to tier 2 switch? https://www.nhsemployers.org/cas...

Re: tier 2 route to ILR issues and confusions

Have you been promoted as a result or point rise?

I believe home office wants to make sure that the point rise is not because of the attempt to meet the salary threshold.

Re: Apply Visa website & IHS fee

I can answer part of your questions. 1. Correct. You can use visa4uk to apply for Visa outside UK. 2. Priority service. You can use priority service but sometimes they don't guarantee priority promises. Depending on how busy they are. 3. Not sure about the third one. Using a solicitor or not depends...

I have been waiting for 11 working days for my priority visa application which in theory should only take 5 days. I have also heard nothing at all from UKVI/Home Office. Upon ringing UKVI a couple of times, they could not tell me what is causing the delay either. I understand from reading other pos...

Re: Tier 2 Funds

I am not an expert, but I remember when I first applied for tier 4 student visa. I prove my finance on my daddy's joint account.

It was fine then, I'm talking about 8 years ago.
Since then my company certify my maintenance so Idont need to provide bank statement.

Please correct me if I'm wrong

Dear all,

Does anyone know the difference between RCoS application and visa application?

If I have submitted all necessary documents does it mean that it will be successful?
