Re: SET (O) Form Changed but not available to download

I think you will be safe @tier2ilr.

What is the difference between applying online and in person? I mean does applying online means just filling out the form online and printing it out instead of downloading and printing the application and then filling it up?

I checked with my GP surgery today.

However they have informed me that they will not men...

Re: Tier 1 (General 5 Year Route) Dependent - ILR Checklist.

Additionally, I need to use just one SET(O) application form. I can include my wife and daughter in the same application form. Is that correct? I was initially thinking that my wife and daughter each need to have their own application form. I hope my understanding is correct. Can someone please clar...

Re: Tier 1 (General 5 Year Route) Dependent - ILR Checklist.

No maintenance fund requirement for ILR as PBS dependent. So that certainly means I dont need to show\provide my 12 months bank statements and payslips with the P60s. Does that mean the above checklist of documents is good enough for a PEO appointment for ILR? Can someone please review? Thanks a lot.

thanks for your reply CR001.

That is what the lady at the Passport office told me when I called today. Was that you there? :D

I checked timelines on the MN1 thread. Looks like most folks have received within a week or within 2-3 working days.

Passport for MN1 Applicant - Time to arrive.

Hi All,

Any idea how much time it takes for the passport to arrive? I have checked the status online for the MN1 process and it shows Decided on 8th October, 2017. I also called the passport office and I was informed the passport is in the print stage.

Thanks in advance!

As long as the start and end date cover 90 days you are good. As you have mentioned that the statements are covering 91 days, you are ok even if there are not many transactions.

Re: ILR - Tier 1 General Dependent Requirements.

Thanks for your reply.

IHS query resolved.

Regarding the other bit, yes so she has a valid tier 1 dependent visa all throughout the 5 years. What do u imply when you say without a break? A break as in from shifting one visa to another? Is that right?
