One can have multiple CoS, the other company doesn't need to cancel.

What is your proof?

I don't think TechNation was paused but another Agency has been reassigned. Also, I am an exceptional promise and also a Software Engineer.

My question ❓:

I am trying to put my documentation together, I just need directions so that I can submit something convincing.

For Example:
🚀 Personal Statement and Guidelines
🚀 Professional Reference statement and Guidelines


Though, I have some pioneer products that I have worked on Both Fin-tech and Health Tech and currently have a one Year experience working for a UK company here.

Total Experience in Tech = 5+ Years


Your experience seems well aligned for EP. Check out the technation discourse forum. There's a lot of resources there on writing your personal statement. Also, try to get someone to review your application before you submit.

Use the official LITK handbook(10£ for a months access i think). Read it twice and go to exam.
More importantly, ILR application fees now increased by 488 pounds extra.

You are right, no need to ask for cancellation as you can have more than one COS. When you get a visa with a COS, the other COS automatically becomes invalid.

Not necessarily.
Ran into a similar issue when I needed to extend my visa for a few weeks befor moving on to another role.
Once the COS for the extension was issued, the new company I was eventually moving could not issue a new COSuntil I had used the last one. They kept encountering an error and I had to tell them why that was.

@gergemam and anyone who is eligible or applying for the global talent visa (digital economy). Shall we indicate and purse this course together?

I am a devops engineer in the UK, currently on psw visa but will like to switch to the GTV.

Let's win together.

They can apply for civil service roles covering legal (many employ you with your Nigerian LLB/BL and give ~two years to convert), compliance, GRC etc. It's mostly dependent on what their prior experience is.
Hello , did you say two years? please is there a link that I can read further on this ? I'm interested as well.

Bro, does one need another COS from their company to apply for a visa extension assuming their 3 years SW visa is about to expire?

The exams itself was a breeze. Prepare well & you can finish the exams in 5 minutes.

More importantly, fees now increased by 488 pounds extra.

Fees for Life in the UK test is £50 for most Monday-Saturday bookings. Some centres charge up to £65 for Sunday bookings.

The increased fee missjekyll (& Hyde) is referring to is the ILR (visa) application itself which increased sometime last year from £2,405 to £2,885 per applicant for normal (up to 26-week wait time application). You may be able to pay either an extra £500 (for priority) or £1,000 (super priority) to cut waiting times to 5 days or 1 day respectively.

Yes there was an HMRC lawyers (G7 grade if I recall correctly) role open recently that stated this explicitly but some others don't. For instance there's a Government Legal Department one open now for 'qualified lawyers' but I know someone who got in as a Nigerian lawyer and is now working on qualifying here via the SQE. You can apply for that one, and just keep searching the civil service jobs website for 'lawyer' and related keywords, and keep an eye on the results.

Wait. Which coin was halved? Been a hottt minute since I paid any attention to the markets 😩
jedisco:


Hehe... much less time for active plays....

Mainly sitting on longer term bags bought at lower prices. Btc, eth.. and a handful of alts.
This year is looking exciting though. The halving should bring good volatility

Thanks. Should have been clearer

Dependents can apply for citizenship straight so long as has been 5 years in the UK unless I m reading this wrong. Citizenship is cheaper.

I’d also like to switch to the GTV too. I have 13+ years experience in product marketing. Let’s explore this together please.

Yes you do. Your COS has a start and end date. At the end date, it becomes invalid. Hence you need a new COS to extend your stay or renew your visa
