Re: Pregnant and sponsor licence revoked

We can't help in any practical way. We can't comment on the status of your sponsor. All we can do is say what you need to do if the sponsor licence is not reinstated and your leave is revoked. You have been told that you need to find a new sponsor but that finding such will be virtually impossible. ...

Re: Extended Family Members Application (Brother) Refused

You said he applied and was refused but you gave no other information. It´s clear from the refusal notice that you did not provide evidence of his (your brother) dependence on your before you moved to the UK. That is what is required and that is what you have to provide.

Re: UK General or Family Visitor Visa

Even if you were a muti-millionaire, prepared to provide everything in support of your parent's trip, they would still be required to show their own finances, as this is an indicator of their social and economic ties; their motivation to return.

Re: Pregnant and sponsor licence revoked

Look at it this way, any company who likes your CV may call you for interview but as soon as your condition is known, it's very unlikely you will be offered a job. If they say they won't hire you because you are pregnant, that would be illegal, but only an absolute idiot would say as much. Clearly y...

Re: UK General or Family Visitor Visa

The dependency required is with regard to their current and on-going situation rather than what you will provide them during the visit. There is, in my opinion, no way they would qualify under EEA rules and it's more appropriate to apply for UK visit visas.

Re: UK General or Family Visitor Visa

My understanding is that to qualify for an EEA Permit, non-nuclear family members must be dependent on the EEA National in the UK. The distinction is that parents need only be dependant at the time they apply, but extended family members must show they were dependent before the EEA national moved to...

For the record and the benefit of others who may have a similar situation, my first response was to a question from a Tier 4 migrant whose leave expires in January. His course has already finished. He wanted to know if he could travel back to the USA but then return to UK before January, with his un...

Re: Travelling to and from the UK on visa

If you were a visa-national (nations that don't get a visit visa on arrival) I would be inclined to say no. However, being from the USA, you can re-enter as a visitor if you have a good enough reason. It really depends what answers you give to the questions. Why are you returning to the UK so soon a...

Be careful who you talk to.

There would need to have been a sudden, drastic and unfor...

One set of originals is sufficient but each application should have a complete set photocopies. Bundle everything together at the VAC.

If you don't qualify for a Tier 4 visa (and only you can know that; we can't say if this is actually so) then your only option is to look at alternative routes. You could study as a dependant of your husband if here were a migrant worker in the UK. Do you already know if he might qualify for a parti...

Your employees must be settled or British or EEA. Does that apply to your wife; surely she is a PBS dependant? You can hire her but there are no points awarded for this.
