The employer really needs to sort out with the HO what happened around losing their sponsor licence but according to the rules if they no longer have a licence they are n...

Re: URGENT: My Employer's Sponsorship Licence expired, what are the options

Your wife's sponsor will have received numerous reminders to renew their licence. Why didn't they renew? Did they perhaps not wish to renew? Once a licence expires it cannot be renewed, a new licence has to be applied for. It is not your wife's job to advise her employer what to do, they should read...

Decision on an application is normally only made after the biometric appointment but there is no way of telling exactly when. The key question i...

Re: Urgent help on English test on naturalisation application

If, as the HO say, you were exempt from the English language requirement when your ILR was granted, and therefore your now expired English test wasn't used for the ILR, then unfortunately you'll have to prove your knowledge of English again by one of the ways set out in the HO email.

The CoS by the T2 ICT employer has to be withdrawn and a new CoS by the SW sponsor assigned. to you. Once this is done (before the scheduled biometric appointment) you can make a new visa application based on the new SW CoS. This will vary (supersede) your current application.
