Re: Tier 2 extension rejected

i was under the impression that when you go for a Tier 2 General Extension, you don't need to have bank statements to prove maintenance funds. im about to do my extension application so that would be good to clarify if i need them or not.

Hello As i am currently weighing my options between doing the premium same day service (£1,164) and the priority postal service (£1,039) for my Tier 2 extension application.

Re: Tier 2 General Questions

have you guys emailed the help desk to ask for an urgent treatment to the allocation? You can email them when your visa gets to within 15 days of expiring and ask them to treat it as an urgent case. Be sure they provide a scan of your visa so the date of expiry can be proven. BusinessHelpdesk@homeof...

Re: Unrestricted COS Allocation process time

we actually didn't call or email them at all. The only thing we did was just log in everyday and look to see if the allocation appeared at the bottom of the Licence Summary. Our request was approved today (although we did not receive an email about it, so be sure to log in to view the request), so h...
