Re: Tier - 4 to Tier - 2, Employement joining date

Yes, I am aware of this. However, my immigration lawyer stated that I can join the employment on the Tier-2 visa only after award of degree. But, my employer stated that I can join after completion of degree. So, which one is correct ? Award of degree is when I received pass/fail result for the ent...

Re: Switching Tier 4 to Tier 2 Visa - Bachleor's degree

I think it depends if your leave is "continuous" or not. i.e. if there was a gap between your bachelors and mba. No it has changed now, only PhD needs to be continuous; read the current guidance I'm in a similar situation, I've done a bachelors and masters in the UK but left the UK so now I need to...

Re: how difficult is it to switch from tier 4 to tier 2?

Many thanks for your reply and apologies if I was a bit vague. What I meant is if someone meets the basic requirements stated on their website is the chances of success very high or are the UKVI usually picky about small details and tend to refuse a lot of applicants? Your reply answers my question...

It is the combination of the salaries from the same Sponsor that counts towards the stated COS salary. Hey, Yes same NHS trust and same Department. One ba...

As long as the SOC code and duties remain the same this is not an issue. It is treated as if it were a promotion within the same role. Your circumstances are a little strange but it is not a problem. Thank you :) I was hoping that you could reply me lol My main concern is that as they are two jobs,...

Re: Tier 2 (Change of Employment) Joining date (Urgent Help)

It depends on which start date the new employer has put on the CoS. If the start date on the CoS is May then you can continue to work for the current employer until the day before the start date on the CoS, regardless when the new visa starts. If the start date on the CoS is 2nd April 2019, then yo...

Re: RMLT is repeated after being selected

In a word - Yes. The RLMT could not possibly be an open and fair recruitment if you had already been selected prior to completion of a valid RLMT. While it may not get picked up at application stage you also have to consider it may be found at a subsequent Home Office visit. It is a risk only your ...
