Re: How much money are you planning to spend on your visit to the UK?

I had exactly the same issue and I am so furious at them. I don't understand how they cannot read all the ther supporting documents and sponsorship form which clearly states that the sponsor will meet the entire cost. I am reapplying for my Mum and I tried to put zero in how much the trip will cost ...

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

I do hope they clear the backlogs and everyone gets a positive decision. I received a letter on the 7th January 2019 (dated 2nd January 2019)from Home Office apologising about the delay and a refund of £610 (I have not received the refund yet though). I did not request for a refund yet but it appear...

Re: Tier 2 dependent to ILR

Is anyone know any successful case of ILR that the PBS dependent granted or extended leave of remain BEFORE 11 Jan 2018, AND has more than 180 days absence AFTER 11 Jan 2018? I don't know how can I interpret that wrong, but the fact is better~ You are wrong. It specifically states visas granted acc...

Re: Tier 2 dependent to ILR

The example cited on the link cyclina1 posted clearly states "You must not include any absence from the UK during periods of leave granted under the Rules in place before 11 January 2018 towards the 180 days allowable absences. For example, if a dependant’s qualifying period includes initial leave g...

Re: Tier 2 dependent to ILR

Hi Srisath, As far as I understand from the guidelines, it only applies to dependants who had their leave granted after 11th January 2018 which is when the change came into place. So if any of your leave or extension was granted after 11th Jan 2018, then the 180 days will apply to you and any absenc...

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

I am so cross about this whole situation especially as a lot of people have applied since November and no sensible communication. I am considering starting a petition about the way the Home Office has been handling Super Priority Services especially since they partnered with Sopra Steria. I think So...

Re: SET (Protection) PLEASE HELP

I believe the senior members of this forum can advise if it is the right form or not. I think you can only apply online now on Set P based on what the website is saying and no paper forms but do clarify please.
