Work visa - which is the best way?

My cousin is in India and wants to come and work here for some time. He was previously posted here for about 1.5 years on a Work Permit. I understand that Tier 1 and Work Permit are no more and therefore he needs to have a firm job offer and apply for Tier 2 visa (provided he qualifies under the poi...

AFAIK, you can only have UK address in your passport, if you have ILR stamp in your passport, for all other short validity resident permits like, T1G, WP etc. they will only put indian address in your passport. this is according to email response to my query to HCI london. I can only say from my pe...

I don't know your individual circumstances, but if the baby was born after you or your wife have got ILR, and in the UK, then you will have to get an affidavit from the Home Office to say that British Citizenship has not been applied for. I think that HCI will then accept the application. I think th...

Please see topic below. For a minor child to be eligible for OCI, one of the parents must be a foreign citizen and eligible for OCI. I don't think the rules have changed recently. Please correct me if I'm wrong. http://www.immigrationboards.com/viewtopic.php?t=84816&sid=78ae1b716857d4a98093a508ed97a...

Correction - OCI cannot be applied for unless one of the parents is eligible for OCI as well. PIO card or visa will be the options if you wish to travel to India after baby gets British passport.

So, just to be clear, should speeding / stopping in yellow box etc. FPNs be declared or not?
And I'm asking presuming that they've been paid in full before any deadline.

From your post, it does appear that you have shown good character apart from that FPN. Did you explain fully in the application the reason behind not paying the FPN in time and the matter having to go to court? If not, then you may like to do so in your appeal. I don't know if character statements f...

Give the date as the start date of the visa on which your ILR application was based, I'm guessing that will be Jan 2007.

As far as I know, and I'm assuming that you're submitting all the documents that are asked for i.e Baby's passport, Birth certificate, Parent's passport & photos, there is no need to provide any affidavit. I certainly didn't. Remember to take photocopies for all the documents as the HCI will definit...

If you collect the PIO on 29th, then it shouldn't be an issue to travel on the 30th. The only worry might be that if they make a mistake on the card then you won't have enough time to get that corrected. I didn't have a problem with mine nor did I see anyone else that day getting a mistake but you m...

I did apply for PIO card for my son, and it was ready for collection in abt 3 weeks. I applied in person at HCI London. Make sure you have all the documents and photocopies i.e application form, baby's passport, parent's passports, birth certificate, passport photos etc, all with photocopies.

Go to any snappy snaps or other high street photo shops and they will take the passport photo for you. They are fairly experienced in taking baby photos so I don't think you'll have a problem. I did it recently for my newborn and it was £7 for 4 photos.

Thanks for your help. I have filled out the form and sent it off via the post office. Its a very simple form, the hardest bit was getting the passport photo(very hard to get the little one to lie still). Fingers crossed that there aren't any problems.
