I remember reading something about that in this forum and that is why I asked HR to include this in the letter they sent me.

Re: ILR- WP Job title changed

I was in the same situation as you, my current title is not the same as it is in my WP letter and my salary has also increased. Nonetheless, I got my ILR yesterday and the case worker does not seem to care about it. So IMHO, I dont think you need to worry. Cheers, Hello, I/company did not inform HO ...

Premium service: Dress code and Forms binding/presentation

Hi all, I have a Tier 1 appointment for me and 2 dependants tomorrow @Croydon. Is there any dress code or any thing about appearance that I should prepare? I.e. should I wear a suit or wear daily clothes? Another questions is that how should I present the forms. They are 73 pages and 50 pages and qu...

Re: What will happen if my ILR application (WP 5y) got rejec

it was discussed here before - any paid leave is not counted towards 180 days absence so if you have say 25 calendar day off from your employer then take them off the total number. all dates need to be listed in the form but marked accordingly. I highly doubt it. Even if the days out are on paid le...

Hi all, Do you know what will happen if my ILR application (5 year work permit) get rejected for large absences reason. I was out of the country for 230 days over the last 5 years.

Hi, Congratulation on obtaining ILR. When you count the days you were absent, did you count the day in and day out as well? Thanks, Went to the PEO in Croydon today for my ILR application. All went well. Got my ILR stamp in my passport after 2.5 hours! No problems with me being out of the country fo...

Hi Thanks for your response. As per my estimation above I thought that less than 200 days will be a reasonable number of private absences. Did the immigration lawyers you consulted give any number at all? My private absences will be close to 190 unless I cancel my 17 days of holidays planned in Feb...

Re: Same question

Hi 007, Out of your 228 days absence, how many days were your private holidays (excluding work)? cheers, No, the paid holidays and travel dates are not included. I recently applied for my ILR, with 228 days absence outside UK (including paid holiday in summer + easter) during the last 4 years, and g...

I have consulted with a few immigration lawyers and they all stated that since my number of days outside UK (minutes business trips) is quite high (220 days), they cannot guarantee that I will have ILR. Some of them suggested that I should apply for Tier 1 and then apply ILR at a later date when the...

Regarding the dates - doesn't the application form to say to put down the date of departure and date of return? So that is what you should put down - don't chop a day off either side or you risk upsetting them. It would be worth supplying proof I think of the different reasons you were absent. yes ...
