I was on a tier 2 ICT visa earlier. I left the employer and the UK on 8th Sept 2019 though my visa was valid till Sept 30, 2019.
I have now secured a new job in the UK with a start date of 14 Sept 2020. Am I allowed to apply for Tier 2 General Visa before 12 months cooling -off ends, however i will enter UK after serving 12 months off, as the new employer joining date is after the cooling of date.
Precise scenario: I left my employer and left the UK on 8th Sept 2019, now a NEW employer has offered me a position with joining date on 14th Sept 2020. Can I apply before my colling off ends and join the employer on 14th sept 2020? Or I have to wait till 9th Sept 2020 (the cooling-off end date) to apply for the visa itself.
