Re: Leaving country after citizenship ceremony(Last help )

From what you have said you are travelling on an Indian passport, so need a visa or a BRP to be allowed on a plane to the UK. Even if you don't return the BRP it will be cancelled by UKVI a few days after your ceremony. If an airline checks whether your BRP is valid they will find that it isn't and ...

Re: I lost my BRP decision letter

The ohoto above is of a biometric enrolment letter. It is used at Post Office in tge early stages of an in country application.

It is nothing like the letter issued to overseas applicants collecting their BRP from a Post Office.

You can collect from Post Office without the letter. You will need the passport containing the endorsed vignette.

Re: ILR Refusal for not declaring DR10 Conviction

Since late 2012 convictions do not become spent for the purpose of immigration applications. There is no factual error on the part of HO. You have a conviction which you didn't declare. You can try AR.

Can take up to 3 weeks, but usually less.

Re: Tier 2 switch inside UK - BRP Delayed

In terms of the premium fee you won't get a refund. You paid for a same day decision, which you got, not a same day BRP. That is a common misunderstanding.

Glad it is resolved.

Re: Tier 2 Income Tax Discrepnency Applying on 10 year

Sounds like your former employer may have been a bit too easy going with HMRC as well as the Home Office. Sounds like they may have deducted tax from you but not handed it over to HMRC, which is why it is not on your record. You need to sort this out with HMRC before you apply. Their view of your ta...

It is not a good enough reason to succeed. I can understand you doing only a few hours with the childcare burden, but why is your husband only doing 16hrs?

Re: How to bring Non-EEA parents to come and live in the UK?

No IO or ECO is going to take your word for it "now just being a visit" if you make a failed attempt for settlement. You will be firmly back in the barren realms of the Rules, rather than the green and gentle pastures of Treaty Rights. The onus will shift back onto wife's parents to satisfy the ECO ...

If she is being issued with a new US passport, even a short validity one, rather than just an emergency travel document (for use one way to the US) she has an alternative. Apply for vignette transfer abroad. It may also be cheaper than making a TOC application within the UK. In UK she can't go down ...

Re: Switching from tier 4 to Tier 2 without completing degre

It is very clear in para102 that it is a reference to PGCE or PGDE only.

Para 106 is clear that your PGD in Computer Science will not get you the 30 points you need. From your post I assume that you did not do your bachelor's degree in the UK, so to switch into T2G you have to complete your Master's.

Re: NHS for visitors?

There has been a crackdown by NHS Trusts on people who should pay, so expect a large bill even after a visit to A&E. Long overdue.

On the bright side, and unlike in the US, parents won't be asked for their credit card before life saving treatment starts.

NOT an overstayer since Feb!
