Is there any working hours per week limit in GTV?
Can I work for multiple employers fulltime at the same time?
What if I am working fultime with one and also doing freelancing? In this case, do I need to register at HMRC?
there are no restriction on work (except for sportpersons), see the caseworker guidance:
https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... 4.0ext.pdf

also, from the immigration rules:
GT 7.3. The grant will be subject to all the following conditions:
(a) no access to public funds; and
(b) work (including self-employment and voluntary work) permitted except for employment as a professional sportsperson (including as a sports coach); and
(c) study is permitted, subject to the ATAS condition in Appendix ATAS; and
(d) if Part 10 applies the applicant will be required to register with the police.
Hello,

Adding to Manci, there is no restriction on how many hours you can work.

1. You can work for multiple company subjects to the Maximum weekly working hours. Please check gov.uk website.
2. Subject to the Maximum weekly working hours.
3. You can do freelance work and yes you must register with HMRC for a self-assessment if you meet the HMRC requirements for that. Please check gov.uk website.

Good luck,
Fred

Hi Manci, Fred and the rest of the Folks,

I have a few follow up questions, if you can reply back to me please.
  • My ILR period will be somewhere in December/2021. Do I have to apply for ILR 28 days before completing 3 years continuous residence in December 2021 or I can apply for ILR at a later date?
  • My wife was on Tier 4 students visa, then she spent two years on PBS/GTV dependent visa. If she will get the GTV visa, these years (on both visas) will be added or not for her qualify for ILR within 03 years?
  • Is there any requirement to show certain amount (bank statement) for GTV main applicant at the time of ILR other than the proof of earning in the same profession?
  • Is there any requirements to show certain amount for GTV Dependents (Spouse/Children) at the time of ILR application?
A prompt reply would be awesome.

Thanks. :)

>>>My ILR period will be somewhere in December/2021. Do I have to apply for ILR 28 days before completing 3 years continuous residence in December 2021 or I can apply for ILR at a later date?<<

Answer: Yes , the date starts from visa issue date of Tier2.

>>My wife was on Tier 4 students visa, then she spent two years on PBS/GTV dependent visa. If she will get the GTV visa, these years (on both visas) will be added or not for her qualify for ILR within 03 years?<<<

>> spouse need 5 years residency however main GTV can elligible to apply within 3 years.

Is there any requirement to show certain amount (bank statement) for GTV main applicant at the time of ILR other than the proof of earning in the same profession?
>> need some earnining in the field of GTV endorsement. The proof of earning can be bank statement or pay slips or can be a document that is vrifiable by a indepemdent source.

Is there any requirements to show certain amount for GTV Dependents (Spouse/Children) at the time of ILR application?
>> NO need to show deposit for spouse application.

Thank you gtv007,

I believe I was unable to put my questions forward in a more clearer manner. Let me rephrase them to make it more clear and appreciate if you (manci/fred or anyone who has similar GTV experience) can shed some light please.

My current GTV visa is valid till 3/2025. However, I will be eligible to apply for ILR after December this year. Therefore, should I MUST apply for ILR as soon as I am eligible, or I can apply at a later time next year for ILR (Because my GTV visa will be valid)?

The other question was, the period spent in Tier 4 student 'and' Tier 2 dependent visa add up in the ILR eligibility for GTV main applicant or not?

Last but not the least,

Is there any maintenance fees to be shown for GTV dependent children (if not for spouse) at the time of their ILR?

Thanks again :)

1. You can apply for ilr at any time once you meet the requirements and must apply before your visa expires.

2. Tier 4 student cannot be added
She needs 5 years on PBS dependent visa to qualify for ILR. Student visa can only be used for ilr based on 10 years long residence.

3. There is NO maintenance funds requirement at all for ilr.

>>>You can apply Tier2 (or Tier1) + GTV = 3 years or 5 years which one is appropriate. You can apply standard service immediately when you will be eligible. No need to apply priority service for GTV to ILR. I hope your application may be processed within week. The sooner you apply for ILR you will be able get citizenship earlier that give opportunity some visa free travels.

The other question was, the period spent in Tier 4 student 'and' Tier 2 dependent visa add up in the ILR eligibility for GTV main applicant or not?
>> you can use 10 yeras route or PBS andGTV route. GTV needs simple document requirement to apply ILR as it was endorseed already

Last but not the least,

Is there any maintenance fees to be shown for GTV dependent children (if not for spouse) at the time of their ILR?
>> NO
