Nothing to panic. Its the annual COS allocation. Your level 1 user can request this if your company is planning to hire new migrants after April 2013

Hi Madona587, Thanks for your reply. Actually i even found our the related SOC code for the job which is scientific researcher and i would be paid in this role appropriately. so i dont think that would be a problem. my sponsor seems to be getting misguided by the solicitors regarding the rules. i s...

Consider the analogy of a business development manager (SOC code 1132) whose remit is to develop the company's business overseas, say, selling tractors. He is likely to spend most of his time outside the UK. The company doesn't have offices overseas. If this is accepted as a valid analogy even thou...

Thanks guys :) So If what Manci was saying is correct all we have to do is inform UKBA about the circumstances and simply move to Norway? When I have to visit I simply travel back on Tier2 ? (If UKBA approves this) If this works then its so much easier for me :D As for business visitor the problem i...

Thanks for the replies. Since I'm already on a T2G can I just go to Norway and send a change of circumstances where my address has changed ? So this means technically I'm out of UK. But like Sushdmehta said T2G for migrants who want to live and work in UK. So not sure how this will work Manci ? I wa...

First of all there is no such thing as 'Letter of sponsorship' involved in the Tier2 process. Your friends company doesn't have to sponsor him. Its their decision. They have the right to say No. If he has taken this in a letter then he has a better chance of suing them. I don't think emails can be t...

Relax. We all humans and make mistakes.

You have sent the change of circumstances form and its the right thing to do. Just wait it out. My gut feeling is you should be fine.

It sounds like a routine and random check. You have absolutely nothing to worry about. Only someone who is working in a bogus capacity, either through their own deception or in collusion with the employer might have need to be concerned. Exactly. My company had a 'unannounced visit' where my MD was...

Rehan, Sounds like you have a better chance. The most important thing is to get things started ASAP since its now taking more than 6 months to issue a license. Speak to your employer and see if they can hire a solicitor to help with the process. Maybe find a good agent. Make sure this person knows a...

I am not even able to qualify for the interview because companies are not willing to take those on the Tier 1...
