Hello,
I have my CoS and offer letter but haven't been able to apply because I haven't done English and TB test.
1. How did you book for your TB test, the site is always saying slot not available
2. Was it any of your lecturers that wrote letter for you for the NARIC verification and how long did it take to get the NARIC feedback.
3. Besides CoS, offer letter, TB cert and English proficiency, what other documents did you include in your application?

Counting on your response please.
Thanks

Good morning all.

Please I need your guidance . my sister just got a job in UK under the Health Care Skilled worker. She had received her COS and she is expecting to resume in November but yet to submit her application as at today. Can she meet up with the november resumption date on her COS? Also the husband want to accompany her to UK just to spend 10 days and returns to Nigeria before he finally join with the children next year . Can the husband also apply for Visa with her now ? if yes, which visa category? I will appreciate your urgent response.

Thank you
Please can you link me up with your sister so we can share ideas.
I'm in the same situation, I haven't been able to apply because of TB test and English proficiency. Has she done any of these?
How was she able to book for the TB test? the site is not allowing me book.

You may have to visit IOM at their office physically to book a date for your tb test or send them an email.

My medium of instruction letter was prepared by my university's academic office (transcripts unit) within the Senate building of the school and not a lecturer.

The NARIC report comes out within 10 working days..but usually less. I got mine in 6 working days.

The documents you need to submit would be shown to you on a checklist on the UK Gov website... within your application portal.

achmed1 thank you very much for responding.
Did the school send the letter to you (via email or courier) or they sent it to NARIC.
Also does it mean I can start the application and save to continue later? I was thinking I have to get all documents ready before starting that's why I asked for the needed documents.

Thanks in anticipation.

Are you going with any family members? I plan to go with my wife and child.

The school provided a hard copy letter Which someone scanned and emailed to me. The school doesn't have to send directly to NARIC, get them to email the signed letter to you .

You can start the application, but u would need to upload the required documents before payment and processing commences.

Upload to NARIC

Scanned copy of your transcript
Scanned copy of your bachelor degree certificate
Scanned copy of your medium of instruction letter

I mean with a NARIC report showing that your Bachelor degree is equivalent to a UK bachelor degree and evidencing your English proficiency you do not need IELTS again, this is for the skilled worker visa. I don't know about other visa types.

She has not been able to do her test, hopefully she will get a date next week before her biometric.

As for the English proficiency, she doesnt need it as she has a certificate issued by Queen Margaret in Edinburgh.

Please, if you attended a Nigerian federal/state university, just consider writing the English proficiency test. You may choose to write IELTS, PTE or any other secured test (check the UK site for guidance). My concern is that you have received your CoS but you don't have all your documents in place. Note that the COS has an expiry date.

As for the TB test, if you can prove to them that your start date is very close and you are way behind schedule, they may consider. Send a mail to them and also consider gate crashing. But you may be required to book a date online first.

Depends on individual circumstance .

PTE turnaround time is the fastest, you get your results same day of the test (not sure how long it takes to receive the certificate or whatever). IELTS takes two weeks at least to receive results ( I had a bad experience with IELTS where my result was withheld for up to 4 or 5 weeks after the test).

Obtaining the medium of instruction letter depends on the school. I got mine (I attended Unilorin) within a week. My NARIC report was out in 6 working days.

For TB test, forget the website, go to their office at 1 Isaac John and book a date. You did likely get a date that's within a week from your visit at least from recent experience.

Any reason for that advice regarding federal/state schools? Are the medium of instruction letters not valid or you are looking at TAT?

Hello @achmed1,
I have been booked for the TB test for last week of October.

I'd like to know how the booking for biometrics work. Is it this kind of appointment that is scheduled or you can just walk in to capture.
Thanks in anticipation of your response.

There are quite a number of services offered by TLS. This includes the walk-in option which comes at additional cost.

I booked my appointment opting for the self service option where I scanned and uploaded required documents myself on the TLS website.

My biometrics appointment was pretty much just two working days after application so wasn't a far off date. I went for the VI TLS which comes at an additional charge of 55 GBP.

I really would like to know the documents TLS require so that I can prepare them ahead, so can I create an account on TLS now or I have to submit my application first?

Sorry to bother you further. I'm trying to DIY since I've already gone far in the process.
