Important but sensitive query

Post by StayInUK » Mon Apr 28, 2008 7:17 pm

Dear friends

This query is particularly for people are working in UK using ork permit visa sponsored by an indian company (like accenture, wipro, satyam, infosys etc.,)...

My questions to those people are

1. Do we need to tell our indian company (through which i have the work permit and working for a client in UK) that we are going to apply for Tier 1 general highly skilled professional Visa ?

2. My intension is to apply for Tier 1 without informing my current company. Is there any situation wherein i am forced to tell this to them during the course of the application process ?

3.In case, it is possible without their notice, if my Tier1 Visa gets rejected, will it affect my existing work permit visa ? In this case, will my current employer (indian company) will come to know of this ?

4. Any document/approval/letter is needed from my indian company to apply for Tier 1 ?

I appreciate your reply (especially , it would be nice if i get a reply from those who belong to any of the above companies which i have mentioned and have got Tier 1 Visa )

Regards

At times Home Office (case worker) make phone call to the employer for verification of earnings. You may take care of this aspect in an appropriate way.

Make sure that you have all pay slips /Bank statement /Letter from Employer/P60 as per current guidence...I think that u wont get a letter from employer stating your salary for last 12 months(if you can get it somehow then good)

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the input. I will plan accordingly.

Those of you who have only viewed this post, i can understand for not giving their input.

But, the input is really essential especially for people like us who are just thinking as to whether we can courageously go for applying Tier 1.

Regards

StayinUK,

Go ahead and apply for Tier -1. Recently one of my friend applied for Tier 1 and his situation is exactly same as yours. Per Diem / Allowances in UK & Salary in India. His application is a success and it took 3 weeks for decision making. Also he got 3 Year Visa stamped on his / dependants passport.

if possible try to get below, which can strengthen your application.

1) get your payslips / per diem slips stamped.
2) letter from your employer about your perdiem/allowances.
3) get prinout of your self asssesment form from BIA website.

All the best for your application.

thanks itsme.. gave some hope to me

Can you elaborate on how your friend submitted the previous earnings option?

For us, the total perdiem is also shown in Indian salary statement. Its first added and then deducted, and hence its lot of confusion reading through payslip and bankstatements.
I'm planning of providing Indian salary slip, indian salary bank account, and UK allowance bank account to justify it.
Hopefully, i can convert my Indian salary part using upliftment ratio and show UK allowance part as normal UK salary.
Can anyone advice me , if this is ok?

No offence my friend, but it's been suggested to you before as well that this is not possible since the rules do not allow it. And rules will remain the same no matter who responds to your queries or if you post the same question again and again.

Why don't you read the Tier 1 policy guidance or you use the online self-assessment tool to figure it all out for yourself ??

I am surprised. The rules suggest to the contrary.

yes its bit contrary to rules, but i am aware of various cases.. where decision is purely made by caseworker's mood/mentality..
but i have seen the application physically.

Maybe I am missing the point here, but where's the contradiction??

If guidance is confusing you, use the assessment tool. For the question "where you are applying from" choose UK and proceed further. In the income section, put in your indian salary and the period you have earned it. You will note that the tool doesn't apply the uplift factor to your Indian salary.
