Hi All, one question please if anyone can help.

My potential employer had done an RLMT earlier in March with less salary but after seeing the high cut-offs etc they agreed to higher salary and did another RLMT. Now after getting the news of removing docs and nurses they are planning to reduce the salary so can they use the earlier RLMT or will have to do it again?

Thanks
they can use the earlier RLMT if it is not older than 6 months.

Just got an email from employer .
You were rejected again and soc code is 2136. We assume you got rejected due to salary.
This is 3rd trial and the salary I was offered 45k can someone explain if i am on 2136 soc code with 45k salary will always get rejected as they say or assumed? Because they will not change the salary for my role! I think they are missing something ?
Appreciate helping me

It’s clearly mentioned that changes will be applicable 6th July onwards.
That itself means up to june’18 it’s business as usual.

Hi

Sorry to hear , Is it rejected or refused , both are different , if it refused means right now Government allocating COS only for candidates having salary more than 50K. Better luck next time.

Rejected means please contact your employer , they might miss something.

Recent results seem to suggest, the cut-off will be 46. There was one person who had his RCOS approved for 50K salary a few days ago.

Not all jobs under 2136 are shortage occupation!! Only very specific jobs and qualifying companies can use SOL for 2136.

How can we know about such companies and jobs, because Appendix K doesn't mention anything about this?

Hii Guys

there are some more good news also for IT/Teaching profession. UK Govt is considering review of its shortage list and considering allowing unlimited number of IT/Teachers once they complete the review of its shortage list.

The new structure would allow an unrestricted number of non-EU professional to enter the UK in the acute shortage areas like IT, engineering and teaching.

https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/nr ... 619479.cms

Let us hope this is also effective from july.

So let me get this straight they can apply under this code number and this means it is not under sol ?

2136 is a non shortage in Appendix J and a shortage in Appendix K. To qualify as a shortage occupation, it must be a job with a qualifying company (as explained above). The specific sector listed above is also one which is only applicable to 2136 being shortage occupation.

Please do not go by this source. This is their interpretation of the government policy which was announced on 15 and don't believe anything has changed then what we know already. They are just assuming that people will get through more easily (because now with Doctors and Nurses excluded from the Tier 2 cap) this frees up those RCoS which they would have received earlier. I highly doubt the the "unrestricted" word in the article.

Yes, I completely agree with voldy1990. The newspaper has misunderstood the immigration related changes UK HO released recently.

45 points refusal!
Just got an email from HR confirming refusal, as it did not meet the minimum points. Have been trying since Jan. Was on 36 points earlier and then raised to 45 in April but still no luck. Had to come back to India as previous visa expired end of last month. Not sure when this wait will end and if employers will have that kind of patience.

Yes understand your point, but it seems it is altogether new news because it has been reported in almost all the news paper. Please check the links below.

http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp ... 176742.ece

https://news.google.com/stories/CAAqSQg ... ceid=IN:en

Hope it turns out be a welcome news soon. It is mentioned that this has been laid before parliament and it is pending approval now.

Hope for the best.
