Hi Vasanth,

I am not sure how to answer that but What I can tell you is that you need to ask your current employeer which is willing to sponsor you to call Home Office and email their Helpdesk with your information. I am not sure how you're still in UK if your employer has cancelled your VISA. Do you have your current visa expiry date. If yes, then please send all necessary information to your HR and ask them to email them and call them. In your situation I suppose they should expedite UCoS.

All the best, hope you get your UCoS soon and make sure your SOC CODE, salary are all appropriate.

Hi Vasanth,

So far what I've seen in this forum is that few of them have been getting their UCOS within 4 weeks(1 month). Some of them got in within 5 weeks and those who's VISA were about expire got it from 5 days to 15 days.

So let's hope yours and mines comes soon too. Mine has been 24 days. Let's hope that it will come by next week.

Hi Vasanth,

My HR didn't send anything and it is not UKBA but UKVI but she made 2 calls which were not really helpful. It was just that it would take 18 weeks, they can't do anything about it and when 14 days left for visa to expire then they advised to send email to helpdesk with BRP details and they would expedite but no guarantee.

When is your VISA expiring? And I believe your should come by this week or next week for sure. As far as I know mine and other members COS timeline were 15-20-30-37 days. But I would urge you to ask your HR to make calls even though if they give you same feedback as I have mentioned above.

Good Luck hopefully, it will come by this week or next week.

Thanks for your response.
My visa expiry 2019 bcoz I did my tier 2 extension last May 2016 only, but unfortunately my old employer closed their operations in UK . so they cancelled all our visa's but I didn't get that letter from UKVI yet.
Now I got offered from another employer, but they don't have UCOS . They sent requested on 12 oct for increase UCOS, still not get any update.
I am really worried about my situation now. :(

Regards,
Vasanth

Please make sure you conifrm the type of Cos required sicne you are changing jobs and your SOC code might have changed.
I am not a lawyer and do not claim to be one. All my comments here are based on my opinions, experience and interpretation of the appropriate UKVI guidance documents and immigration rules.

Vasanth,

If your going with new employer then yes you need UCoS but you would need RMLT. Make sure you company does a proper RMLT, please do read other people who had issues with RMLT. Make sure everything goes smoothly.

Hi Vasant
I'd suggest you ask your employer to drop an email and call requesting it urgently
Avoid using any dates but the fact that you need to travel as would like UCOS asap

Thanks
