Re: Innovator visa experience

Thanks for the tip. While not ideal to loose 2(3) years on the timer for the dependants ILR, it's not a show-stopper for me, I can manage this, as long as I get the T1 Innovator in the first place :) What do you think on my concerns above re. address and refusal record?

Re: Innovator visa experience

Yeah, I suppose the reason I am doing the whole T1 Innovator thing is that my wife wants to quit her job, so she would have reset her "timer" for ILR purposes anyway, resetting it for the kids.

Re: Innovator visa experience

Well, my bad, I should have known better, now I have a 1K-worth of experience :) I hope my re-application from Ukraine would work out, what do you think? The 2 things I am worried about are: 1.
