ILR eligibility - Switch Tier 2 to Tier 1 Exceptional Talent

Post by anan_88 » Tue May 15, 2018 1:16 pm

Hi,

Would my time on Tier 2 be counted towards ILR eligibility if I switch my visa from Tier 2 to Tier 1 Exceptional Talent. I know for sure that time on Tier 2 for ILR eligibility is not counted when switching from Tier 2 to Tier 1 entrepreneur. Do same rules apply for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent?

Thanks.

I had three years on Tier 2 General and switched to Tier 1 Exceptional Talent (which I literally only held for a few weeks before I immediately applied for, and was granted, ILR).

Cost an absolute fortune as I did both the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Stage 2 application in-person, and also the ILR application in-person, but it meant that it was all dealt with quickly. The PSC I used was not familiar with this route though, I was the first Tier 1 Exceptional Talent case going to ILR after three years that they had seen.
