TIER 1(G) DEPENDENT 10 DAYS SHORT AND 5 YEARS ELIGIBILITY TO APPLY ILR

Post by ramimpdocs1 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 9:37 pm

I was on Tier 1 General and got an ILR in Jan 2017 and would like to check with you for my wife's eligibility to apply for ILR.

Tier1 General dependent visa issued: 6th March 2013
Entered into UK: 7th May 2013
Tier 1 General dependent extension applied in June 2015 and got the visa validity till 26th Jan 2018.

Query1: Eligibility to apply for an ILR?

Hence she entered into UK on 7th May 2013 ( with in 3 months from the visa issued date 6th March 2013), Could we consider the visa issued date 6th March 2013 to calculate the 5 years period? If so then 5th March 2018 will be the date to reach 5 years.

If 5th March 2018 is the date to reach 5 years then Could we apply for ILR 28 days before to 5th March 2018 which will be 6th Feb 2018?

Query 2: Tier 1 general dependent visa validity 26th Jan 2018 and 6th Feb 2018 is the eligibility to apply for ILR. What could I do to save more than £1500 and apply SET (O) application for ILR? Could I apply FLR (HO) through post on 25th Jan 2018 and then vary it to SET (O) on 6th Feb 2018?? Would Home office refund the application fee of FLR(HO) application and take the application fee only to SET (O)?

Thanks in advance and I'm looking forward for your reply.

Dear Vinny,

Thanks for the swift response which is very useful.

Is there any changes in ILR rules recently for Tier 1 General dependents? Considering the "visa issued date" instead of "UK Entry date" to calculate 5 years period for ILR, if applicant travels with in the 3 months of visa issued date. I think, earlier this rule is only applicable for the Tier1 General main applicant and not for the Tier1 General dependents. Please confirm.

If eligibility to apply for ILR is 6th Feb 2018, Shall we submit postal/online application for Tier 1 general dependent extension on 23rd Jan 2018 and then vary it to SET (O) on 6th Feb 2018?

Would Home office refund the application fee of Tier 1 general dependent extension and take the application fee only to SET (O)?

Regards,
Ram

Dear Venny,

Thanks a lot for the prompt replies.

If eligibility to apply for ILR is 6th Feb 2018, What would be the better option to save the money and apply SET (O) application on 6th Feb 2018 through premium service? Shall we submit postal/online application for Tier 1 general dependent extension on 23rd Jan 2018 and then vary it to SET (O) on 6th Feb 2018? Is there any better approach other than this?

Would Home office refund the application fee of Tier 1 general dependent extension and take the application fee only to SET (O)?

Ram

Perhaps apply for SET(O) (option 2) by registered post shortly before expiry of leave and upgrade when eligible, if necessary?

Hi,

There's a 10days gap between the ILR eligibility date to Tier1 depedent visa valid date.

Visa Validity: 26th Jan 2018.
ILR Eligibility: 6th Feb 2018.

If I send the SET (O) application by register post on 25th Jan 2018 (before the Eligibility date 6th Feb 2018),

Would be there any chance home office may reject my application during the Upgrade?
What would happen if i dont go for upgrade?

Regards,
Ram

Dear Immigration boards forum,

Apologies for the rush and Would you please help me with the below query?

There's a 10days gap between the ILR eligibility date to Tier1 dependent visa valid date.

Visa Validity: 26th Jan 2018.
ILR Eligibility: 6th Feb 2018.

If I send the SET (O) application by register post on 25th Jan 2018 (before the Eligibility date 6th Feb 2018),

Would be there any chance home office may reject my application during the Upgrade?
Would it be safe to apply for pbs dependent extension through post then vary to set (0) on/after 6th Feb 2018? (premium service)
Will the home office consider pbs dependent extension application submission date (25th Jan 2018) and check the validity to consider the set(0) application?

Regards,
Ram

I think that this may work. By the time you complete your biometrics, you should be eligible.

Henc you mentioned "may work", I would like to request you to give any other alternative options.

Option 1 is safest, but more complicated with subsequent varying. Probably unnecessary, due to the short time involved to qualify.

To be safer still,
Option 1: vary to ILR after completing qualifying period.
Option 2: upgrade to premium service after completing qualifying period.

It's your choice.

Hi Vinny,

Thanks for your valuable time and I really appreciate your swift responses which are very helpful in my case due to having short period of time to submit the application by register post. (early next week).

I would like to go with safest one which is Option 1: vary to ILR after completing qualifying period.

Ram
