ILR for Dependent of Tier2 general who has earlier on Tier 2 ICT

Post by sannu001 » Mon Jan 20, 2020 3:48 pm

Hi

I had enter UK with my wife in Jan 2013 as Tier 2 ICT and later my converted her Dependent visa to Tier2 General visa in Aug 15 with fresh entry clearance. I then moved to Tier 2 dependent on Nov 15 within UK

My wife Visa is due in Aug 2020 which is 5 years completion

As a dependent of Tier 2 general to ILR i checked the rules as

Your partner may qualify if all of the following apply:

they have permission to be in the UK as your partner
they’ve been living in the UK with you for at least 2 years if they applied before 9 July 2012 or 5 years if they applied on or after 9 July 2012
your relationship is genuine
you intend to continue living together
you have enough income to support yourselves and your dependants
you’re not using public funds
They must:

pass the Life in the UK Test
meet the English language requirements


So my query is
Will I be eligible to apply for ILR in Aug 2020 to need to wait till nov to complete 5 years on this dependent visa. As per The above guidelines, I have been in UK for more than 5 years as partner (mix of ICT and Tier2 general) and meet the other criteria as well.

No.
to need to wait till nov to complete 5 years on this dependent visa.

Yes.

You cannot combine ICT main visa holder time with tier 2 dependent time to make up 5 years.
