Further all evidences provided should be original - no copies are allowed. No where in the policy guidance it is stated that the letter should state activity. If the above points are covered in the letter - then it is sufficient. That's true. My mistake, I guess. I should have submitted the origina...

Thanks Mr Baboo! That makes sense. In that case, I suppose the thing to do would be to apply for another 2 year extension and qualify for ILR when the 5 years have been accumulated?

You can't be absent for more than 6 months in total (of the qualifying 5 year period) but no single gap should be longer than 3 months. Hi Mr Baboo, I was wondering if that 3 month limit applies to the initial period of the Tier 1 visa too? Specifically, would entering the UK more than 3 months aft...

EC - letter as sole proof of accommodation?

I was going to submit an invitation letter from a friend as proof of accommodation arrangements and her telephone bill as proof of her address. It's been quite a long time and I have not received the bill, which was sent after the letter. It may be lost in the post. I'm not sure if I should wait for...

Yes, you should definitely contact them. It would be helpful if you can show them documentation or quote from an official source such as the UK Border Agency on the matter.

As rajesh9pl said, you'll need to get them translated. Check the guidance or with VFS for the criteria that must be met for your translator and translated documents. You should also submit both the original and translated documents.
