Re: go tier 1 exyension :)

I don't appreciate this. The caseworker maynot bother about your visa expiry date & you might want to extend it because your employer wants a "longer valid visa". Result, geniune applicants who have 1 to 2 months for their visa expiry can't get an appointment in Croydon PEO or their postal applicati...

Hi, If everyone jumps the queue and starts applying many months in advance, esp in the current times - my feeling is that we will only end up in chaos. I don't have a problem HO processing applications earlier but i don't want them to hold off geniune cases who have sent their files at the time pres...

No I put it wrong, 'am applying for FLR not ILR. I don't think the guidance states you can apply for FLR - anytime before your visa expires. If that's the case, one can spend 1yr of the 3yr Tier 1 and apply for FLR. Couldn't they, theoritically? My employer offered me a Perm job even though I had on...

The recommended guidance for applying extention is 4 to 5 weeks before the expiry of ur leave. But, some of our beloved members here have jumped the queue and have sent their appln even 7 months before their expiry (referring those without a fair and urgent requirement), just out desperation.

If the Letter head shows company Logo, name and address and the same amount which shows in the Bank statement are same, i don't think that will be a problem, basic rule is your pay slip and bank statement should shows same amount of credit. No, the statement shows the total figure paid by them & no...

Hi,

For my salary proof - I have only one statement of earnings letter from employer stating the total amount ££££ was paid between xx08 to xx09. They haven't provided a weekly break-up of the payment.

Would this be sufficient, along with the bank statements?

Thanks.

Hi Sandy,

Thanks very much for this post.

I had exactly been through all the above points. I find it very difficult to move in to a permanent position...looks like I would be temping all my life thanks to these agencies.

Will be more wary of this in future.
