Thanks CoolestGuyC for posting the reply from the BHC. It's been some time now, did you submit accommodation proof after all? If you did, what type of proof was it? A invitation letter from a friend?

I asked vfs and was told by one person that it's compulsory and another that it is optional!

See 1.3 - Validity of entry clearance and leave to enter Thanks sushdmehta. According to that, an intended travel date of up to 3 months at the time of EC application is allowed. That pretty much matches the 89 days that I was told by the VAC. I'm not sure about the following part though. 'For appl...

Thank you T90! Just to confirm, that's 3 years from the intended travel date stated when applying for EC? I was told by the visa application centre that that can be 89 days from the date of EC application.

The topic must've been brought up before but I just can't seem to find anything on it....

With the transitional arrangements for HSMP approval letter holders, it is stated that the application for entry clearance will be under Tier 1. HSMP was for 2 years and Tier 1 is for 3 years. How many years will be granted when applying for entry clearance under Tier 1 with a HSMP approval letter? ...

Enter within 6 months?

The HSMP approval letter is valid for 6 months and states that it must be used to apply for a UK visa within that period. Mu...
