Re: Form AN: which option to choose for Knowledge of languag

I think you could go for "(i) UK NARIC has confirmed that the qualification was taught or researched in English;" (Section 1.22 on Page 5) I believe the print out is considered to be "confirmed" by UK NARIC as they update the website on a regular basis. Please wait for others to respond though. I'm ...

Based on the content of your replies, it doesn't really matter what you "think". Being polite and giving incorrect information is far worse than being firm and giving the right info. I clearly wasn't rude. Check this too: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1825...

I did not have B1 English as a requirement for HSMP/Tier 1. All I needed to do was submit my original Masters degree and a letter from my Uni stating that all the courses were in English. As I've said before, the above are irrelevant as per new rules. Both the following requirements need to be met f...

I was on HSMP for 2 years and Tier 1 for 3 years. Got my ILR earlier this year. Yes, I do have a masters degree from the US taught in English. None of the above seem relevant anymore according to the new requirements that take effect towards the end of next month. I'm trying to understand which list...

Language requirements from Oct 28 2013

I have already passed the Life in the UK Test for my settlement and only just found out that for Naturalisation (and also ILR), there's going to be an additional requirement of speaking and listening. http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/newsarticles/2013/april/15-settlementrequirements1 Co...

Congrats m2008. I've been anxious to hear about your case. I presume as the Director of a Ltd company you could take as much Annual leave as you please. In my case, I worked for a Ltd company as an employee (a friend of mine is the Director). Do you think it would matter if I mention the reason as a...

I doubt anyone here can give you a solid YES/NO. My understanding is that if you were on T1G, as long as your absences don't exceed 180 in any 12 month period counting backwards from the date of your ILR application and don't exceed 90 at any one time, you are not required to submit any evidence.

@cs95tdg, is it your understanding that a T1G applicant for ILR doesn't need proof for their absences (paid or not)? I have a long absence of just under 90 days which was only part paid. Total absences is less than 180 days over all 5 yrs combined. What's the best reason to give? I know this is a gr...

Congratulations.

I hope you don't mind me asking a couple of questions.

Were the 70 unpaid leaves continuous? What is the maximum number of days you were outside the UK and your reason for it?

Thanks.

Re: new form - evidence for unpaid leave?

You applied under old rules that's why they have been "nice" with you. Just want to point that he may have applied using the old form but not under old rules. The new rules took effect from Dec 13 2012. But, I do agree with your sentiment ... they will probably continue to be nice until Jan 3. Here...
