To be honest, I am not sure why it wouldn't be considered as a legitimate reason to be outside UK during the qualifying 1 year period. It's a UK based employement and due to employment requirements your friend is working in an overseas office. Wouldn't it be disregarded, provided she meets the other...

It's difficult to say but I think I read a few times on the forum that the caseworkers don't even ask for this letter when the applicant's absence is not significant. Obviously you shouldn't rely on this however even if you can't sort three letters it might not be a problem. As for the second questi...

Apparently, If you've proved this in your previous applications, then you do not need to prove it again. If the applicant hasn't proved this in previous applications would be enough to give them a print out of that page? I already have my ILR and never had a tier type visa. But my uni is on this li...

They are only interested in 39 hours salary so if your salary is based on 37.5 hours put the figures accordingly and they will calculate the 39 hours equivalent and compare it to the COP rate.

Just a quick question about the payments...it may sound a bit naive but; did you leave the payment section of the form blank and filled it at the PEO? I haven't been to a PEO before and from what I read, I understand that the payment is made at the counter with the physical card rather than the off...

Are they required for WP applications as well? Because what I understand is they're asking for only the last 3 months statements and payslips.

Hi, Just a quick follow-up question on the same issue; does the 'delayed entry' make my case complex, what do you think? I want to apply at PEO and not sure if the UKBA staff at Solihull can make a decision on my application straight away or would they refer it to a senior caseworker because of the ...

I have the same problem. First entry is with a WP in 2008 and will be eligible to apply end of this year. However there is a chance I won't be able to meet the new salary requirement. What I am wondering is if this is something that can be challenged? I guess they will straightaway say: "the rules s...
