Thanks for that quick reply.. my doubt is > I am currently working in the UAE and I need to give 1 month notice period at my office when resigning, on top I need addition 3 weeks approx. to dispose and settle everything in UAE before starting the job in UK. So if they are applying for the COS in a day or two, how do I give the joining date, as the time for processing COS/visa are not exactly known.
I believe the date to be submitted in COS application = time for processing COS+time for processing visa+ my requirement( 1month notice+3 weeks) =??
As the first two are not certain, how do I fix the joining date now.
Thanks a lot for the help on this site,
