tier1 visa - help please

Post by imranhameed2000 » Thu May 30, 2013 3:52 am

I have applied for tier 1 general extension. I have wrote a covering letter in which I have given a breakdown of points I claimed. But I forgot to claim in covering letter about uk experience 5 points and falling 5 points short according to covering letter. Although I did claim all points including uk experience in the application form. Will my visa be refused bcoz of my covering letter or case worker will consider the application form for pointa claiming.

Doesn't matter. Your covering letter is a supplementary document. It shouldn't supersede the application form. They do have to give you the 5 points.

But just to be sure - are you OK without those 5 points too?
