Re: ILR ????????????????? help

I guess they are passing a bill to make it as 8yrs from July '11, instead of 5yrs. So, in anycase you will be applying for an extension isn't? i am worry if 5 years period starts from my arrival, then it means i have to apply again for another extension, after 3 years? or will qualify for ILR with 5...

Even though it is called a PG Diploma, you spend 2 years studying it.

So I think duration of the course is more an important factor than what they call it.

Re: Entry clearence in to UK second time with out job

I think the problem is more with the Immigration officers in India (esp Mumbai) rather than UK, because over there they fail to understand the logic of "going to another country and searching for a job/ without a job"; I had to explain a great deal about HSMP & Immigration to them. Once you land in ...

It is not required but you may want to attach a spl delivery envelope and take the reference number. You can use this to track where your packet is currrently by using tracker in Post Office's website. In one case, HO had sent it but the post was mis-placed. Luckily, throught this ref they were able...

One country is not the criteria. It's £800 minimum on all days over the past 3 months + the liquidity. As with your question, it has to be looked in at a more detail level because 1) it would depend on how much you had at Country X & its Xchange rate over past 90days Vs GBP. 2) & Great deal of exp...
