I think that breaks in employment of 90+ days would reset the ILR clock and that you may need to wait until April 2016 to apply. Furthermore the proposed changes to settlement may make it more difficult or even impossible to settle, even in 2016. Maybe immigration advisor may be able to help find so...

Relevance to ILR is that when you use IRIS, you don't get a stamped on entry - which makes it difficult for the IO to asses the absences from the UK.

Have you been asked for all p60's or you just submitted them..? IO saw P60s in my folder while I was looking for my pay slips and made a gesture to terms of "hand those over as well please" (he hasn't explicitly asked for all P60s)... Forgot to mention - I've also presented the IRIS log (they email...

Got me an ILR stamp :) Interview was uneventful. Got in 30 mins before my appointment. Made a payment, then went into the waiting room. My number was called after about an hour. IO started asking for documents, but I couldn't hear a word he was saying because of the noise. I just started shoving req...

Potential problem is that I won't get the June pay slip until some time next week - so won't be able to present it with my application.

I applied two times so far - got B1/B2 visa both times (business & tourist). They didn't seem particularly nosy - interview took like 5 mins (also I was quite vague about my travel plans - said I plan to go to US sometime in the future :D). I took bank statements, pay slips & letter from my employer.

An Immigration Advisor on another forum said that the increase shouldn't be a problem as long as the job description didn't change.

That's a relief!

Guidance says that "normal" annual salary increments don't have to be reported - but that significant increases may warrant a new application. In other words salary increase does not fall under technical change. It's either doesn't need to be reported - or it disqualifies you from the immigration ca...

Can somebody please confirm that I have my dates in order :)

- Arrived on 30th of July 2006
- Booked an appointment @ PEO on 4th of July 2011

30-28 = 2, hence my 4th of July appointment is in accord with the "28 day" rule.

Correct?

Could a salary increase of 33% over 5 years cause a problem when applying for ILR, as a WP holder (in theory that's 7.5% increase per year)?

My responsibilities haven't changed. Also I had a fairly low start salary.

Current salary is 7% over the minimum as per SOC code.

I bank with Barclays. They were happy to stamp & sign the printouts (which I made, using the banking machine in the lobby) about 2 months ago. I just wasn't sure if these are acceptable for SET(O). Apparently these are acceptable :) I stand corrected! Barclays policy is not to stamp/certify bank st...

If you're going to be employed in the UK for the 11 months surely you need to be paying UK tax & national insurance.

Double taxation would (probably; if India has an arrangement with the UK) save you from paying the tax again in India.

Thats for the help so far. Another potential problem has cropped up :) I have misplaced my original bank statements. Would certified printouts do instead (ie normally I'd just go to the branch and ask them to do a printout and stamp it)? How far back should the printout go (3m, 6m... 12m)? Cheers

Queries - SET[O], WP

I'm applying for ILR in just over 30 days (as WP holder).

When is the earliest I should be asking my employer for the letter (i.e. is the letter dated 30 days before the interview date acceptable)?

Thanks!
