XO, I'l be somewhat blunt - (i) you are an in breach of your conditions because you have remained in the UK beyond the validity of the your visa - waiting for the Home Office to deal with your case is moot since technically you shouldn't have been here to make that application (ii) you are an overst...

No need to inform unless the increase is based on a substantial change in your job/ role that would fall in the realms of a 'new job'/ technical change. What a generous employer you have :lol: .

stdabhaidh, Your stay in the UK is dependent on your relationship subsisting. It obviously isn't and thus technically the Home Office could find you to be in breach of your conditions and liable for removal from the UK. This is is likely not an issue until your visa renewal stage. Get your employer ...

1. Fax them details of the trip to include e-itinerary/ tickets as applicable as well as why it is essential.

2. I mean that if you do 1 they may speed up the processing of your application - the approval results in a residence permit sticker/ vignette in your passport.

Dawie,

Issue likely to come down to semantics but IMHO a step parent particularly in the circumstances described is distinctly a relative and thus falls to be a qualified referee for naturalisation purposes. Your application your call.

WHV can only be applied for at an overseas British Diplomatic Post. The visa post will sometimes consider the length of time you have spent in the UK prior to applying for the WHV in the context of ties to your home country given that the WHV is not in a category leading to settlement. IIRC this is ...

I concur with Paul.

To add to Pauls comment on embassy staff having diplomatic status I believe the same applies to those exempt from immigration control under Visiting Forces status to include NATO personel.
