Abeg who get answer to this question.

Mehn, the thing was like a movie. He left I think two days to the day they gave him

I believe he will try to come back again to the same school, I think they gave him that option or something

Its sad given the wasted time hustling, attending classes etc

But those on SWV can bring or remain with dependants?

YES they can as previous conditions on dependents of SWV holders were not altered nor addressed by this new changes.

This is called Whataboutism. It has never won an election.

I encourage you to sign up for canvassing i.e speaking to people on their doorsteps for the elections in Spring infact i challenge you to do so.
You ll start to get where i m coming from

This government needs to go. QED

ReesheesuKnack:


The SNP in Scotland is rubbish.
They keep throwing the dead red meat of ‘Independence” to hoodwink Scots about their failures.

Same with the Labour government in Wales. They are messing up big time, but once you point out their failures, they point the blame to Westminster.

Shame!

Unfortunately, insurance is now expensive for some......

Road tax varies, some vehicles are free, others are £20 per year, some are £165 per year, whilst others are £675 per year ........

The best rule to apply is, before you buy any vehicle, get an insurance quote + cost of road tax and check ulez compliance.........

Getting quotes before you buy, I want to believe would impact negatively on one's credit score, is this correct?
I mean, some of these insurance companies carries out a hard search on credit score, right?

Nairaland is back up in time for a factsheet released today from the Home Office to provide some clarity on the recently announced policy changes.

To summarise some key announcements:
-those already on a care visa route will be allowed to stay with and bring in dependants. Anyone switching to the care route (both in and out of country )from spring 2024 will not be able to stay with or bring in dependants.

- those already on a skilled worker route will not need to meet the new £38,700 threshold when extending their visas, changing sponsors or applying to settle, but they will be subject to the 25th percentile of earnings which is currently £29,000.

- family visa income threshold reduced to £29,000. Will be increased in stages to £38,700 but no timeline announced yet.

More details here:

@Ticha, @Lexus, @Zahra29, @hustla, @schhike & other elders
i changed to a skilled worker visa (care/support worker) around April this year however we had a son three months ago and we only obtained his birth certificate...

we have not done his Nigeria passport or even NIN as we don't have any plans of travelling to naija soon...

Will this present visa matter affect our son... should we go ahead to add him as dependant visa? to obtain his BRP... or is he too tender?.. I am concerned and worried about the new visa policies enacted...
Please your candid advise would be appreciate especially those who have given/gave birth in the UK
Many thanks guys

OP wrote about tax increases in Scotland.
My response was about that.
And yes! I stand by it. The SNP is rubbish. They just use an elusive Independence to hold their followers captive.

And again, Wales is not el-dorado. Labour has not turned Cardiff into ‘small London’.


PS: my last statement is figurative

Since you have already switched to SWV (Care & Support), you don’t have anything to worry about. James Cleverly mentioned a couple of days ago that the new rules are forward-looking. That means it can only apply to people getting into the route newly. Fresh. It doesn’t apply to existing folks, like you.

Hello,

Please I am new in the UK for the past week, I've collected my BRP (which comes with NIS), opened a bank account, registered with a GP,... Is there anything I need to do?

Please I want to ask for job recommendations, any job at all. I live in Woolwich London, is their genuine job agencies I can register with to fasten my job hunting. Please I need suggestions, as I have no one here for guardian. Every relation and friends I had while in Nigeria has turned their back at me for reasons I can't fathom. Please brothers, you people are my last resort.

Thank you all. Hoping to get my stand through this platform .

@ the bolded: No. NO. I repeat, NO.
They haven’t. They. Have. Not. They are (probably) extremely very busy and possibly struggling big time too.

Now back to the crux.
What sort of visa do you have?
What sort of skills do you already have (from Naija)?
What types/kinds of jobs are you eyeing?
The answers will help folks to help you with recommendations.

I had to continuously drag them and tell them I was reporting them to the UK authorities. Back to back I was cussing them out everywhere. The money came after many days. Nearly a week. Never again with Nala. It was scary. Nobody should go through that kind of trauma.

I hold a dependent visa
Searching for any job at all.
Can make many Nigerian dishes, data Analyst, hair stylist, Farmer. Was a public health worker before I left Nigeria. But don't wanna venture into that cos I lack the necessary trainings, so I need a job that requires little or no training so as to save up money for the necessary trainings. For now, I have no choice doing any legit work, hence it pays my bills. Thanks

You have got a very powerful visa though so make the most out of it now before all the rogbodiyan take over cheesy

Since you got some skills ...next would be to start updating your CV to match the UK format (if you haven't already done that) and begin searching for jobs in that line.

1. Get a UK format CV and come up with at least 2 different CVs. One for cleaning, casual warehouse and production job and one for your professional data analyst job.

2. Go to indeed, CV warehouse, CV-library and search for warehouse and production job. Make sure your cv aligns with the job specifications and ensure you send at least 30 applications in a day for a week then come back and testify. If you or your wife have a car, try and drive to the venue of the day of interview- e get reason for this.

Good luck.

For a start.
Are you on student or care visa.

I formerly work as a care assistant now I work fully as a support worker.
Send an email to the email on my profile and I'll share my editable UK CV with you and give you a few of the company I know are recruiting or that I've worked with in the past and presently.
Good luck and welcome to the UK.

Do you know about something called Occupational Code?

Within the health & care visa, there are different occupational codes. The ‘no dependants ‘ clause only applies to persons in some (not all) occupational codes.


Check the official guidelines to clear your doubt.
