Re: Naturalisation application process questions

Your life in the UK test is valid and yes you can use the same certificate. Once you submit your citizenship application, making sure that you have satisfied the residence requirements in the 12 months prior to application & in the 3/5 year period - then Yes you can go ahead and travel. Do keep in m...

Re: Absences fom UK

Hi secret.simon

I know that I can apply, get a refusal and then reapply again later. But that would be silly, a waste of time and money. I would rather wait and apply when everything is in order to avoid any unnecessary delays / refusals.

Thank you for your advice and support.

Re: Absences fom UK

Hi Cullinan, Many thanks for your prompt response. I have indeed seen and read the guidance you sent across, that is how I learned that there was a discretion clause for absences between 101-180 days. The discretion clause stipulates that I have to demonstrate strong links with the UK alongside the ...

Re: T1 Entrepreneur 50k ILR

Probably what they meant was that you can count the waiting period only if the date of extension and ILR date is less than 1 year apart but can only go back for 1 year from the date of application so that might include few months of waiting period in a particular case But why would the date of the ...

Re: T1 Entrepreneur 50k ILR

Thanks for your reply guys, I guess it is open for interpretation in this case.

But I have a feeling like you said in an earlier post that it will be 12 / 24 months after the BRP was issued. Whoch means that I can't apply before this time next year anyway

I wouldn't worry about it too much. I got my refund 2.5 months after my approval. I didn't chase the HO or anything for it. Might speed up the process if you chase them. Not sure Dear Members, My extension has been approved 1 month ago but I didn't get any IHS refund yet. I am not sure whats the rea...

@zimba88 thank you for clearing that up - and here I thought I had caught a break of sorts. Oh well. You ENTERED the route in Dec 2013, so you are covered under transitional arrangements. That line simply means you can for example hire 4 people for 6 months and therefore do not need to create a posi...

Re: Tier 1 Entrepreneur

You can also write your MP to chase the home office for an update on your application. Most MP's won't do anything until you have been waiting for 6 months or longer. But it is worth a shot.

Re: Tier 1 Enterp. Extension Refused

Congratulations.

I am glad that you were able to overturn the decision at the AR stage and that you didn't have to go down the fresh application route and incur the extra expenses.

Good luck with the next portion.
