1. Yes she can extend her tier 2 dependant visa under same route and complete her 5 years to obtain ILR. Before 11th January 2018 there was no absence limit but any new visa or extension after this date will be subject to 180 days absence limit during any qualifying 12 months period.peeyush_geo wrote: ↑Thu Dec 12, 2019 10:37 pmHi,
I have a query related to my wife's visa extension application. I got ILR this year on 5 year route. Earlier, I was on Tier 2 PBS visa. My wife was on Tier 2 dependant visa but She didn't lived here continuously. She was moving in and out of UK many times a year. Her visa is soon to expire.
1. For her visa extension, does she has to apply the extension of Tier 2 dependant visa or family visa for the UK settled person (ILR).
2. Which ILR route she will be on, 5 years or 10 years.
Leave it blank but if you can't proceed then maybe giving the last latest COS number when you were on tier 2 might work.
It is asking for the LAST cos details you had before ilr. It is not asking for a new cos from your employer.
If you applied using standard service, it is 8 weeks. It would have been useful to ask the IHS question before submitting. You should have put your expiry date as x y 2023 to get the correct IHS for 3 years.Now its 3 weeks since we submitted the application. Everyone I know has their visa extension in within 2 weeks. Even my visa extension was in 6 days. This makes us worried. I have few questions. Please help.
Your company is NOT able to sponsor your dependent in ANY way if you hold ILR, not even for maintenance funds if this is what they have done in a 'sponsorship letter'. Only you or your spouse can prove maintenance funds for 90 days in your bank account and must submit 90 days bank statements. Did you submit your bank statements as proof of maintenance funds???1. Are they going to reject the application. There is no problem with the documents as my company has given a sponsorship letter for my wife. Also submitted, Council tax bill for last 1 years, as well as marriage certificate, her brp and her passport.
Standard service is 8 weeks.2.Is it possible contact visa office and ask if any problem with document or anything which needs clarification.
3. If they take time to give decision and a negative decision arrive after 20th Feb, then what should we do. Do we have to leave the country then reapply from India? or we can appeal while in UK.
Unlikely if she reapplies within 14 days.4. Will this affect her ILR clock.
