Also I beleive that to be eligible for ILR you should be working in the skilled profession for which you were given the visa It doesn't matter which skilled profession you stated when applying for the visa, you are not required to continue in that profession in the UK. It can be anything, as long a...

As you are not able to submit new documents for an administrative review unless requested, it would be best to submit a new application.

I guess, you are wrong. The most recent bank statement should be dated no more than seven days before the EC application is submitted. There is no mention of "transaction date". For instance, you submitted EC application on 12th August, the bank statement should not be dated before 5th August, wher...

I think I know where the problem is that the funds of £2,800 or £800 have been in the bank for at least three months and the balance has always been at least £2,800 or £800, as appropriate If the letter didn't address the point highlighted in blue, I would also agree with the CW. regards The le...

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...

EC rejected, maintenance - letter. Help!

My EC has been refused and I would really appreciate some advice on what went wrong and how to proceed. The reason cited was that I did not meet the Maintenance requirements. I have in fact, maintained the required balance for more than four months immediately preceeding it. I submitted a letter fro...

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...
