Re: Visa Application Advice after being denied entry

I just want to clarify what you mean by "if any question asked". On the application, it's all very basic. They ask me to provide a reason and a reference number of the case. However, the case, more or less, has all the details I provided above. So should I be mentioning my fiancee? My work? Anythin...

Re: Telecommuting on YMS?

Not visa wise.

There maybe some complications with tax, but they can be overcome.

Re: Visa Application Advice after being denied entry

My research revealed that this visa has the option of being granted from within the UK. This is where you went wrong. You can switch from many visas to T4 dependant, but not from a visitor visa. I was told I was not going to be allowed to enter the country and was put on the first plane back to Can...

Re: Visa Application Advice after being denied entry

Remember they YMS visa is just that, it's not a living-together visa Where in the rules or anywhere less does it say that? I assume you are aware of the similar discussion which took place in this thread? http://www.immigrationboards.com/uk-tier-5-temporary-work-visas/tier-5-yms-to-flr-m-t180360.html

Re: Tier 5 (YMS) to FLR(M)

The time together on YMS counts, apply as late as you can, it is extremely unlikley they are going to deny it because you are 1 or 2 days under the 2 year limit. Even if you apply by post on the last day, her existing leave (YMS) continues until a decision has been made) and by the time the decision...

Re: Tier 5 (YMS) to FLR(M)

If her career is so sucessful why is she not going down the tier 2 route?
Why go through all the hoops of Tier 2 including finding a willing employer (and then being tied to them) when she could gain an unmarried partner visa with almost no restrictions?

Re: Tier 5 (YMS) to FLR(M)

As has being pointed out there is no such stipulation that Tier 5 visa holders cannot cohabitate or come to the UK as a couple. I am personally aware of dozens of people who have done exactly that. While there is no dependant category for Tier 5 YMS, it is stipulated that family members need to appl...

Re: SET (LR) application fee heavily rising from £1093 to £1

Looks like the same thing they did to Tier 1 extension fees a couple of years back.. they really need to be reined in as there is no justification for fee increases of this level.

Re: Partnership visa denied, help please

If you apply prior to expiration of her visa, her current leave continues until the new application is decided thus she is not an overstayer.

Re: Partnership visa denied, help please

Can't you just apply again now that the 2 years will be satisfied next week? Best option. Should have surpassed 2 years if not before, then by the time it is processed. Our plan as it stands is to go to live with family in the republic, using a visitor visa for her In the UK it is not possible to s...

Re: Lost BRP when abroad

I know of people who have turned up without a BRP - the immigration officer looked them up and let them in. Obviously it's a lot easier if you're not a visa national, but without a return ticket getting the airline to allow you on the flight can be a hurdle.

Re: Tier 5 (Youth Mobility) dependant already living in the

I take that as being they must apply separately for their own T5 YMS, which is not possible for a Pakistani national. Furthermore: 319AA. In paragraphs 319A to 319K and Appendix E, 'Relevant Points Based System Migrant' means a migrant granted to leave as a Tier 1 Migrant, a Tier Migrant, a Tier 4 (...

Re: Tier 5 (Youth Mobility) dependant already living in the

It seems to have been overlooked that you cannot bring dependants on Tier 5 YMS so you are not going to get anywhere with this.

It appears from the following post that it would be possible to leave immediately after the application, then do the ceremony outside of the UK:

Re: Process/timing following application submission

Thanks very much
otherwise your certificate is sent back
Is the certificate sent to the council, who send it back to whoever issued it if an appointment is not booked in 90 days?

Is there any other way to speed up the pplication, it seems there is no equivalent to PEO for citizenship?
