I have been on this for the past 6days... practically tired....

I just need a guide. I feel I must be getting something wrong.
What I need to achieve by end of today.

1. My application as main applicant
2. My two dependants application ( wife and daughter)


1. Maybe I do not need to input my GSW in their application.
2. Why is my application saying I don't have dependants.
3. Why is there application requesting for visa expiry date.

It's annoying already.

Spent all night on this application...God help jare.

Yes ..it's a skilled worker visa form...


So sorry, I am just seeing this. Have you been able to made any headway?

You are definitely doing something wrong.
How are you filling the application? Please calm down . Each application needs to come with their own GWF. How you will link the application is when asked some question relating to dependant .
For example when I was filling mine, I put my spouse name , parent details and my kids as dependent where it’s asked.

My spouse GWF and for each children are different but all the information are the same.

Please let me know where you are having issue.

Good evening,

Started the application for my dependants and on the final stage, we are to supply visa expiry date ,does this mean they can't finish their application until my visa is out or what....I am applying for them separately and I was very careful not to input any wrong answer.

I can't proceed without supplying the visa expiry date


Everyone of them suppose to have GSW number I think. For mine, we did it together as a family and everyone has the application form. Your visa do not need to be out. It depends on the information you provided. Is this skilled worker visa form?

Good afternoon

Kindly advice.

I got a job in U.K and I have a the required documents.

I am on my application presently

Filled in that I have two dependants,my wife and daughter.

But at the end where I have to pay for IHS it's giving me that I have no dependents...
Secondly, I commenced there on application too...at the final stage,it's bringing out an option where I need to input my visa number or something.

Please advise,is it that my own visa must come out before I can apply for my dependants and I must travel together with them.

I think you will have to filled their own form separately. I meant your dependants.

Some people might see it as throwing money down the drain but it works for me. A car is a diminishing asset, once you drive it out of the forecourt it looses its value so there’s really no point in buying and owning a brand new car. With outright purchase, you will have an asset to hold but with leasing, you will have nothing after three years and will start the whole process again. It’s the same analogy as renting/buying a house, the only difference is that land and buildings appreciate in value whereas cars depreciate.

You can buy the Fiesta if you can get someone to check it over for you. I appreciate this might be difficult considering you are new in the country. Where was the car advertised? Is it on Facebook or Gumtree or it from a car dealer? At least with a dealer, you will have someone to hold responsible if the car is a duff,

Thank you for this explanation. It's giving me more clarity. I saw it on Facebook.

You don't own the car after your plan, despite paying plenty. ......... grin

It comes with it's pros and cons........ Decide what financially works for you ..........

Yeah. That means if I go for the plan, they take care of insurance and all. It's just for me to drive, buy fuel and pay the monthly charge right?

Haha! Fair point but in Naija it’s a not a legal requirement for a car to be road worthy though.

If she can get a mechanic or someone that knows about cars to test drive the car and check it over before purchasing…..no wahalla.

I do PCH and put the car back after three years. No MOT plus free servicing, gives me peace of mind. I used to buy outright but had a very bad experience with a Kuga since then I use the leasing route.

Talking about PCH, how frugal is this?

I’m not a car expert but personally, I wouldn’t go for a 2006 model. You don’t want to buy a car and then end up spending nearly the same amount to get it to pass MOT thereafter. You may also not be able to get breakdown cover for it because it will be more liable to breakdown.

So what year would you advice?

Madam -:

Have you conducted an HPI check ?....

Have you checked the MOT history reports ?...

Have you conducted a test drive ?......

With the MOT report as seen on the vendor page it says MOT till September. Not a fan of used cars but it is what it is in this new country to start a life. Still contemplating though.

Good afternoon, I recently arrived in Glasgow with my husband and we'll appreciate any helps with finding jobs. Please help with any leads on accommodation too. Thank you.

Which area are you looking at in Glasgow?
Check zoopla, right to move or open rent. Put your location and increase to moderate miles you would prefer to stay. Ensure you uncheck “include let's agree”. Call the agent or send an email to then. Make sure you have a phone number to include. All the best in your search. BTW, I am also new in town.

You can get palm oil and other African stuff from Kashmir store on Eglinton Road G5 9RU (you can get directions their from Google map) walking distance from some parts of city centre. They have 10kg bags of rice as well, they have long grain one( Tollyboy Rice is closest to Naija one).
For bigger bag rice and wholesale products generally there's Alfa Wholesale on Lancefield street G3 8HZ
Also another African shop called Larrytino on maryhill road G20 9AX ( they stock all Naija food stuff, owned by a Nigerian), the others are Asian owned.
Hope this helps.

Thank you. I will check them out

Big bag of rice is Costco. 10kg. Sometimes you might see 20kg on their website. Palm oil I arrange from home cause I don’t trust these ones here. But you should be able to buy online.


Can someone bring palm oil from Nigeria? I thought they won’t allow it to fly. If yes, how did they do it. Thank you for the suggestion. Really appreciate

I doubt you will find bags of rice like we know it. Oyibo no dey chop plenty rice. They buy the small 2 kg bag and cook only 100g per person so it lasts them forever. I’m sure I have seen 10kg bags in Costco but your best bet will be the African shops in Glasgow.

Please, I read somewhere on page 1 that someone said his advice for tier2 holders is to buy the house on the the first day if possible. My question now is how long someone can stay in the uk before purchasing a home, for example, if the person has at least 15-20% fund of the mortgage at hand. Thank you

It was tiring and by the time you get to about the 170th question, your mind would start playing tricks on you...the worst part is the walk of shame. This when you have to pack your belongings after the time is up and walk towards the reception to get your result not knowing whether you pass or fail after 6hrs.
Keep doing your CPEs sista!

Hahahhahaha. I can relate with this walk.
