Since I am not applying to the same type of visa I think the cooling off period doesnt apply to me and I am make a fresh application to "Tier 2 General". Hope I am correct in this.

Thanks for your replies.
My wife is on "Tier 2 long term staff partner" dependent visa and working in the UK.
Can I get her a "Tier 2 General" visa sponsored she can get a T2G visa once her employer assigns a CoS to her and she meets all other requirements. She would have to apply from her home country.
and apply for myself as her dependant? once she returns to the UK as a T2G migrant you can change your status to being her dependant, furthermore, due to the October 2013 changes to the Immigration Rules you can switch in-country. See para 7.22 in the Statement of Changes:

Or cooling off period still applies for either of us? cooling-off will not apply to either of you in this case.

In para 7.23 of the same document it states that main applicants and dependants cant swap visas. How does this para affect para 7.22? it doesn't
I have already received a CoS number from my new employer. Do you think that will just go waste if I try to apply knowing that cooling off period applies to me? your application will be refused. The prospective sponsor should have known better than to assign a CoS to you - ask them to read the T2 sponsor guidance
