Re: Mother Permenant Visa UK ... currently in UK on 2 Years Visa

Very high risk of refusal, which will also shut the door to any future visitor visas for her to the uk. It is the hardest visa to get since the rules were toughened in July 2012 and has a very very low success rate since then. Those who have been successful, have only been so through very expensive,...

In case HO asks for the original, it is to match it up if the photo comes off the application for any reason. 2) What photo do I need to attach to th...

Nothing 'shady'. If you have left your current tier 2 sponsor and a new tier 2 change of employer is rejected, you have to stop working, as clearly stated in the COVID-19 update. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-advice-for-uk-visa-applicants-and-temporary-uk-residents If you’ve appli...

Re: Citizenship absence calculation

To apply Citizenship, we should not be out of UK 450 days in continuous 5 years of completion and 90 days in the year ( 6th year ) which we'll be eligible to apply Citizenship. Citizenship is based on the 5 years immediately preceding the date of application and not 6 years. So, my question that 45...
