So make sure you have got everything when you upload the form. As soon as you upload the form, the system will ask for the payment to be made.Its safe to make...

I have seen the approval letter and although you can work part time with another employer(who is not your sponsor) for 20 hrs/month(and you need another COS employer to sponsor your addintional work). WHen I asked one of ...

I would definitely not advice anyone of such a move. The world today is changing so fast you are not sure what will life be in any county in 10years time. Also, I dont believe in spending 10 years in a country just to save up and then go back. Life is precious and 10 years is a long time to not set...

I have been working as a contractor for 5 years, and never ever have I faced/heard issues wherein the job agency has refused a CV because the person worked as a contractor. On the contrary, the companies are keen to get contractors to become perm employees. This is true atleast in financial\investme...

Thanks Sushdmehta. I guess I will apply for my wife's dependent visa on FLR(M) after I get my ILR approved. That will probably give her a better chance while searching for jobs, since the recruiters/job agencies would look for a "stable" work status. Any suggestions for points 1) & 3) would be much ...
