Hi Guys.

I want to ask what's the implication of applying for a skilled worker's visa before the start date on the certificate of sponsorship.

Start date is in May, but CoS was issued this early march.

Applicant wants to go ahead and apply because of the impending immigration policy change.


Yes for sure, once cos has been issued you can apply.

I have some money aside to pay my house rent plus bills for 3 or more months.
The real question I think I have is if the business can comfortably generate enough profit to continue to pay my house rent and shop rent plus bills which would be a little over 2k monthly. More like I want to know the profitability in such a business or if I should do another kind of business.

You need to find someone who done a similar business to understand more of the in and out. Otherwise mistake can be costly so its best to learn from others mistake instead of yours.


If you start based off your comment you are not bringing experience or anything to the table and just money. Meaning your learning curve is from scratch

my people i want to apply for canada visit visa from Uk but my family live in Nigeria and i want them to join me on this trip.
but the problem is I Moved here four months ago on a skilled worker visa, with the hope that I would be able to start work in care work immediately i landed ooo, and my family haven't join me yet if not shege pro max.

my family live in Nigeria while i live here in the uk and i want to process a visit visa for us. is it possible she do her biometric in Nigeria while i do mine here in the Uk. Is it possible for me to Use my Nigerian bank statement and company documents to complete the entire visa application Because if I use a UK bank statement, it means that I need to submit a payslip, which I haven't been on any employer's payroll.

All these long months with no shifts are you sure it won't affect ILR later. Keep worrying your employer about this topic.

Please I need advice. Is 30 hours for a 3year old public fund in England? I have read gov website and it says if you don't have settled status, it is public fund but I've been reading about people say its not. Any advice please? @mamatukwas @lagosismyhome @ticha and anyone who can advice

Ideally it is public funds for immigrants and for settled people (citizens) it capped at Earnings of 100k but what I am hearing is some schools are opening it to everyone . So yes some schools are allowing immigrants to get it

Whether it will be an issue later on. I can't say for sure

Hello guys.

I had a job from nov 2022 till date. PS its my first and only job in uk.

Now from nov 2022 to april 2023 my salary is not up to 12k. But within these months, i paid tax of about 100+ in feb,100+ in march and 80+ in apr 2023.

On the hmrc site it says i paid 0 pounds which i assume is the correct thing.

But my employers took taxes from me according to my payslips.

I feel i should have the feb,march and apr taxes refunded by now or could i be wrong?

Yes the Refunds have gone out as I know two people who got for last year tax rate. Make sure your address is up to date with hmrc because it only through post they contact you for Refunds

Also if you need any clarification, call them

Good morning guys, please i need some clarification on this questions.
1. Tier 2 visa holder came to UK with 7months old baby, if the baby is put under benefits it is fall under public funds.
2. About to have another new born baby in UK, if the new born baby put under benefits it is fall under public funds?
Thank

If the both parents are tier 2 holders then I think none of the children should be under benefit . That will be wrong and probably cause problems later on.

How so? If both are in the same sector - one MA and other dependent for 2 years on one hand, and one MA (former dependent) and other dependent (former MA) for 3 years ...I'm curious to understand this more.



If Ma remains as Ma then it counts. ... if Ma switches to dependent and vice versa the clock starts again if on the 5 years pathway

However if for any reason they are on a 10 years path then any legal stay would be counted such as time spent as Ma or dependent

I tried o. Airline is saying I will pay £98 to change date/destination. With this unrest in France, I don’t want to go.

Will be happy to transfer to someone if they can bear other costs like. It’s a 2 person holiday

I am scheduled to go as well in 2 weeks with my family so been monitoring it. So far it appears to have calmed down

The UK government’s advice to holidaymakers as of 10 July advises, "While the situation is now calm, you should monitor the media, check the latest advice with operators when travelling and follow the advice of the authorities."

So in 5yrs route one will pay £13,500 in Immigration Health surbcharge and those on 10yrs will pay £27,000? This is just for s single person.

Why would anyone pay this much to get into the UK legally when you can pay people smugglers far less than that and get in and you will not be deported to Rwanda.

This is madness!!!

First and foremost......

Write a list of all the bills + mortgage/rent......

You can decide to go on wage percentage terms or simply pick and choose........

One person no dey pay bills for the UK, person go just die (whilst the other person is just buying bags and sending unallocated fund's to families abroad)......😂🤪🤣


I went for a baby dedication last week in naija church one of their London branch and the pastor was preaching how it is wrong for a woman to bring anything to the table

That it's biblical that a man is suppose to pay all the bills and anything relating to the house and let the woman keep any money made
BTW this pastor has been in UK for years

I had to smh that you see how some religion are always causing problems . I am sure after the service some couple went home to fight based on that preaching

A family friend said their school mgt sent them a video the school intended to play for the students so they could request exclusion if they didn’t want their child to watch (sec level). He said the video was GROSS and he asked his child to be excused. Apparently when they went back to class, the ones that watched said they were traumatized by it. I don’t know what the schools hope to gain by assaulting young peoples senses so early. It’s crazy.

House, I need some advice. I am currently in Scotland on a Student Visa doing a Masters (to be completed in January 2024) in an IT-related course. I have received a job offer (with sponsorship) for a tech role. I am married with 2 children. Does it make sense to switch to a Skilled Worker Visa now? I still want to complete my Masters.

Who masters truly help in this uk... so many jobs don't need master to get the role or to do the job

If I were you I would switch and then think how I can do the rest of the masters part time or online

It’s True. They don’t collect government money so do not have to collect government nonsense. Most (not all) private schools too have Godly foundations so you will hear a lot more about Christianity than a public school.

In our experience, they do not teach any of these things at all in Junior/Primary school. In Senior school where it’s discussed, you have the right to ask that your child be excused from the class if you prefer. And it’s mainly rights of everyone, not mast*rba*tion.

You’re paying cash, your opinions are much more heard and very valuable.

If you can go private, do so with the quickness.

England are teaching primary school level... you even hear them teach wet dreams and some other graphic stuff from year 4 all in the name of PSHE

Good evening beautiful people, please I have a question. I apply for a say 5 year visitor visa for my mum.

I want to understand how it really works. The maximum stay of a visitors visa is 6 months. If for example she stays for 5 months and goes back to Nigeria and then she comes back after 1 month and then stays 5 months, has she violated any visa rules?

What is the best way to maximise the use of this visa.

Thanks in advance.

cc justwise fatima04 lexusgs430 ticha and all the sabi people on this thread

She technically hasn't but if you becomes too frequent she can be denied entry and sent back . I am talking from personal experience as my mum was almost sent back. The luck I had was that they called first as they were denying entry and I was able to convince them to allow with conditions .
