"Congrats. this is good centre. I went there in 2013 and got extention. Planning to go Solihull in 2016 for ILR. They used to check docs before getting fee. then you will sit in window in front of caseworker and he will go through your application in front of you. If they raise any questions you have the opportunity to answer them there unlike other centres who would just keep docs and will ask you to return in two hours. Is it not the same procedure in Solihull now?" -

Now, we do not directly hand over the papers to the caseworker. There is another person who collects all the documents and asks us to go through BRP. They then hand it over to the caseworker while we can finish our BRP process and leave. They will call and inform once processed.

I had paid upfront using credit card. Before giving me the token, they had asked me to show the payment receipt. I do not have idea on how it works if one has to pay at the centre.

Dear Experts
I have a query regarding the Tier1 General Visa extension. Currently I am holding 2 years valid visa but I am short of time to complete 5 years. As now the Tier 1 General is going to close on 6th April 2015, So Can I apply for extension although I am having current valid visa until Feb 2017.
Please need your experts advice.

Hi Shahmir
I got my initial visa in 2009, but first entry done feb 2010, then stay for 3 months but due to recession no job so go back as I was still having job in middle east.
then I come back 2012 for extension and got visa till 2014 April. Again came in 2014 Feb and got visa upto Feb 2017. I got my job transfer here in July 2014, so since then I am living here.
As Tier 1 is now closing, so want to extend the visa again so that I can get upto april 2018 so it means I will can get upto 4 years stay here.
that time then we have to decide what to do next but we can stay max upto 4 years upto 2018.

Waiting for further feedback.
