Does this mean I don’t have to include account statement in the supporting documents for my spouse??

I just renewed my tier 2 and didn’t submit any account statement (proof of maintenance)

People o, I have come again.

Is it right to turn me down for a job because I am on spousal visa? They said that I must be on ILR. No, it’s not a security company, they said it’s just their HR law.
shocked

They want permanency....... Because a spousal visa is still subject to curtailment .....

Just migrated to the Uk and I'm kinda finding it difficult to grab some of the things they speak, especially with those that speak quite fast. Is it just me or what?, kinda frustrating sometimes..


You would get used to it..... Listen to talk radio stations like LBC, BBC London etc etc etc

Hello all,

Not sure if this is done here but need about £4000.

I have the Naira equivalent at rate of 430/£.

Putting everything out there so as to be transparent.

Lexusgs430 can serve as escrow.

This looks like discrimination.



Not in the absolute....... They might have historic cases and considering cost implications, on possible free trainings involved......

They would have tested this policy at employment tribunals...........

justwise:


..add £6-8K to that for before you start dreaming of Msc in the UK

Then hold another £9-10K + for maintenance money depending on your school location


That juicy foreign students fee, is tempting the takers....... Honey to honey bees............

Wow.

Tbf, I can understand tier 1 or tier 2. But I don’t need their sponsorship. So why are they worried if I’m on ILR or spousal? Can I also call mine a dependent visa? I really liked that job offer- it’s as if they copied and pasted my CV. It’s paining anyhow that I was turned down due to frivolities.

When you get your ILR, simply reapply....... (if the package still looks attractive)........

You’ll get used to it with time. It was really difficult for me at first too but I wasn’t at any point shy to ask em to repeat if I didn’t get what was said at first. Don’t worry bout it.

Good evening everyone. I plan to visit Spain dis December. I'm currently on leave to remain, I was given 1 year multiple shengen visa on my last visit to Denmark valid till June 2020

I'm guessing i can visit Spain without applying for Spainish visa?

Thanks

Yes, you can.

I'm currently touring an european country using a schengen business visa issued for a different european country (France).
As long as the schengen visa is still valid.

Last last, at Immigration they will ask for confirmation of your return ticket or your accommodation reservation while in SPain.

Hi People
Bikonu eh.... I am doing my dependant’s application, I have just renewed my tier2 and the COS which I used for my renewal is still valid and it certified fund maintenance for me.

My question is, do I still need to attach account statement to my spouse’s application to show fund maintenance being that my COS hasn’t expired, besides, what I renewed is “Tier 2 Leave to remain and not “Leave to enter”

Don’t even know if I am making sense but sha.... you people understand.

Hello house. Good day all. Please I want advice on some one that studied French language in the university in Nigeria and if that person want to relocate to the UK, what can the person do with the French language? Is there any career growth if the person want to be a teacher ? OR if the person want to do other courses. I need advice and suggestions. Thank you

Thanks for responding


Yes, I have seen that and uploaded it before
I just need to be clear with regards to the very last sentence there

1.I currently have a tier 2 leave to remain since my application was made and granted with the UK
2.In my COS, my sponsor ticked find maintenance for me and the COS is still valid
3. My sponsor is A rated and I didn’t submit any proof of fund maintenance

With the above three points, does it mean that I don’t need to submit proof of fund for my spouse.

English is not my papa language, when it comes to this immigration grammar, sometimes, I just need someone else to help me understand
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Bourne007(m): 3:36pm On Sep 17
Just noticed you've actually loaded before lol.

From all the 3 points you listed, you fall into that category.

I would have translated in your language but not sure which you speak grin

My dear I really can’t advise on this. Personally, public health seems over flooded to me. So many people studying it at masters level from all over the world, whether they’ve all been able to find a job, I don’t know.

There appears to be more job opportunities for social workers.... but bear in mind that social work won’t make you rich but you won’t be hungry either. What I also don’t know is if they admit international students into social work..... I do not know

You dont need to submit proof of fund if its leave to remain. The maintenance part is for tier 2 "leave to enter" applicants mostly and not people already settled here
