If you require an UNRESTRICTED COS - typically for almost all cases if you apply in-country - you cannot use a restricted one. Each case will be either restricted or unrestricted and you can't use the wrong one.
The good news is that they can request additional Unrestricted COS allocation at any point in time - it normally takes between 2 days and 2 weeks and they need to make a strong case explaining why they need it. This is all done on the SMS, they just need to read the manual...
Thanks and good luck!hopeforall9 wrote:Mine took exactly 4 weeks!
Here is our timeline:
requested - Tuesday 27th September
Cos allocation granted - Tuesday 25 October
I would say ATM its about 4 weeks on average for an allocation. Good luck to everyone else getting one.

So basically we sent the business helpdesk an email with the job description, my qualification and that the company have made a mistake in my last application. Additionally my sponsor attached a copy of my passport front page, visa , degree certificate and my contract that states my salary. They were really prompt in replying so it should work for you.
Just make sure that your sponsor sells you as a vital part of the company and that this role is the role is highly specialised.

I see in earlier posts they were taking around 4 weeks in October, but wondering how long they are taking in November... The application for mine has been in 4.5 weeks.
