Yes I checked through Disclosure Scotland and it is there. It s written there Road Traffic Act Section 3, £200 fine. I hoped that Home Office would ignore it because it does not constitute "recklessness". And I don't have anything else. And now I worry that new rules would remove it when they allowe...

That's the same question I have on my mind. Will there still be discretion for one minor offence as it was before?

So, if a UK citizen receives fine from court, then it will be spent in 1 year time. But if an immigrant receives the same fine, then he will be considered to be good enough for leave to remain only after 2 years time? Even if he/she lived here for years and years and it was one minor traffic offence...

Sorry, did not notice your quoted rules.

So, does it mean that if there is traffic conviction by court, then it will delay application for ILR for two years?

I am not solicitor, so double check it. But as far as I understand ILR will be removed if she will be out of UK for 2 years non-stop. If you visit UK during this time, she will have airport stamps in passport that she was here and ILR should be Ok. I am not solicitor, but this was always my underst...

I received visa, invested £200K (much more) in the business in less than 6 months. I cannot register in that same business as a director.

My view is that it does not look good. This visa is designed that you're supposed to run business. Not somebody else. At least you could be partner in business. It looks like you can be banned from UK for 10 years. If UKBA is very kind, they may remove this but on the other hand it looks like it was...

Well, I agree that the service could be improved. However, I found UKBA service not so bad. I applied for 6 visas in this country. Sometimes it is frustrating but overall I would give it 3.5 stars out of 5. It could be worse, considering this service is mainly not for UK citizens. I think the proble...
