Why don't you wait and simply apply for ILR together between Oct 2012 and Feb 2013? I have to travel for more than two months expected by Oct-Nov (or sometimes earlier) for giving training to my off-shore team.

Hurdle after hurdle !!

Can't comment on these until the rules are out.
Some things which I noted were
1. The consultation document mentions Tier1 of Entrepreneurs, highly talented etc only (4.3) onwards and not of normal Tier1 existing people


Did UKBA release the outcome of this consultation?

I feel, they are making things more clear The categorisation of Temporary and Permanent is more positive i Believe and flexible in long run. They could even add Tier1 General in future with Temporary status when skills are shortage. Don't know how it will be!! I still not sure how they can attract s...

I really wonder how they do all these so systematic and fast !! We need to really see what's their plan in breaking settlement w.r.t to existing Visa category. 1. The worrying thing is "require those who fail to meet the English- language level to leave the country" .. is it single chance? I feel bu...

dont be discouraged mate

I feel you shouldn't be discouraged. 5000GBP shouldn't be a problem to earn in partime.
You could work partime or try doing freelancing. You have time till Oct11
But please keep all paperwork..

All the best

I've seen somewhere that those who fail life in the UK test will not be eligible for ILR.. not even second chance. Is that valid for existing Tier1/WP people?
