Out of interest, how does a degree help get the ECR changed to ECNR? The understanding is that degree holders are educated and lucid and usually emigrate to take up skilled / highly skilled jobs abroad. In the case of low skilled and semi skilled labour migrants who do not hold degrees, the authori...

Ah You've become a victim of phishing scam. Never divulge your username and password when you are sent one of these dodgy emails.

First thing to do is to lodge a police complaint and try to get your money back from the bank.

I think technically HSMP holders post Dec 06 are tier 1 category once it was renamed. Why I say this is because that is the only way you could get an extension. There isn't and never was a separate HSMP extension alongside Tier 1 extension if you know what I mean. So according to me, when you go for...

I assume you plan to use the uplift factor to your Indian income to garner the requisite points which in fact you can't be using since you've been here for more than 6 months. It's a sure rejection if you tread on this route.

this is still good work as it takes them out of the UK, makes them happier and keeps the streets a little bit more bum free
They can get off the coach or plane, take the next flight or bus back to UK and nobody can stop them.

Because life/health insurance provider need to know your GP details to cross verify your health status. You need to have registered with your GP before you even think of buying a policy. Hope this helps.

Your ILR clock was reset when you came here from India on a new WP (EC). So you can apply only in fall 2011, provided the rules remain the same during that time.

and Hari if you are granted the ILR, then your wife and child have to apply for an ILR dependant visa before coming to the UK. Your wife cannot travel in the current visa (HSMP dependant) as that may not be valid anymore after your transformation to ILR category.

I suggest you visit ListenToTaxMan.com, enter your gross salary in there and check the amount against your payslip. BTW are you getting a proper UK format payslip fr...
