Re: overseas for more than a month on Tier 2

Hi Paradoxical, I can assure you that since I got my Tier 2 Visa I have flown in many occasion upto 25 days or so and there is nothing you need to mention to anyone at all. In future if you're planning to apply for ILR then there are some requirements where it states that you cannot be out of UK for...

Re: Tier 2 Extension query

Thanks for help ShrutiBlue,

Like I said my Visa Expires in 14th of Jan 2017. Can my Work start date on COS be from 2nd of Jan 2017 and apply for VISA in first week of November 2016. That way I won't be losing many days on my extension. I hope I am right but correct if I am not.

Regards,
dragon

Re: Tier 2 Extension query

Aplinhar, As far as I know COS generates instantly (that's if I am not wrong and if process hasn't changed), I know that because when I my employer generated COS for my first Tier-2 application, I was present with my HR while HR was filling the form just in-case all the information was right. Theref...

Re: Tier 2 Extension query

Hi guys,

I called UKVI again and finally, your extension depends upon you how long your employer will hire you for. My employer will put 3 years in my Tier 2 Extension COS so therefore, I should have my visa for another 3 years and I should be eligible within another 2 years for ILR.

Hi Eduleal, As far as I know though I am not as lucky as you, what I know is that my current employer where A Rated Sponsor but due to no needing anyone to sponsor they didn't update and weren't sponsor anymore.

Re: (Urgent) Tier 2 application approved, can I drop out of

Hi Cynthiayip,

Did you get Tier 2(General) Visa approved if yes that would mean you already have a job.

So like you mentioned as long as they said your application approved I am sure you will receive BRP.

But be very cautious and hope others reply too on this thread with better insight.

Hi Casa,

PCN was paid to Camden Council online £65 and Speeding (Sp30) was paid online to Metropolitan Police £100.

I was not called to court or anything.

Re: Tier 2 extension refused - traffic offence not declared

Casa,

Just to confirm, It should be declared in criminal offense section or CIVIL Penalty section because as far as I know there is no Traffic Offense section.

One more question, I did receive PCN for driving in Bus Lane. Do i need to declare PCN that too.

Thanks
