January 2019 Restricted COS - PLS DO NOT POST VISA APP RELATED QUESTIONS HERE!!!

Post by CR001 » Mon Jan 14, 2019 9:45 am

Members are reminded that this topic is ONLY for JANUARY 2019 RCoS information and outcome.

DO NOT POST Any reference to your potential sponsor, you will have your forum access restricted if you do.

Please read the posts BEFORE asking about how to calculate points and also see post below with the points table first. S

DO NOT post repetitive low value posts, such "Any update anyone", "still waiting" etc. They will be removed. When members have an update, I am sure they will post one.

DO NOT post visa application process questions. Start your own topic for that if you are lucky enough to get RCoS approval.

I monitor this thread many times a day, so please be aware of the above when you post.

See HO Guidance for Staff on RCoS Allocations (click) before asking questions that this guide can answer.
