Zahra29:


Front door routes include skilled worker visas and their dependants, family visas such as spousal visas, refugee applications etc - where the settlement intent is transparent.

It's "bad" because students are traditionally expected to return home after their studies, in fact many students attest to this during their visa applications.
The government wouldn't grant 300k plus student visas if it thought they would all stay permanently and bring their families along also. For context, the government has pledged for many years to reduce net immigration to less than 100k a year - immigration from the student route alone would swamp this figure.

Study route is the most common route to relocation and this has been going on for decades even the government knows this. And it’s a Front door route as long as it’s done legally.

It might be easier and faster to learn. But can u pls explain how it saves money? In the same statement, you said manual cars are cheaper. How far?

This is very simple. Just go to any car dealership website & search any car of the same model in auto and manual.

Come back and report here on the price differences

I thought there would be an easy way to do it nah

I don't like calls but it appears there no other option

Had same issues, said I owe £159 but couldn’t pay online. Called them & I was guided on how to make the payment while on the call. Wait time was about 20mins before I was able to speak to an agent.

The guy told me to go to gov.uk website, search for “simple assessment” and then click on “pay simple assessment tax bill”.

In the letter I received, there was a reference number and I quoted it before making payment.

Please o

HMRC said I owe £120 and I have been trying to pay since but I am unable to pay on their platform. Sent them a msg and got this but it's a bit confusing, I think the letter was even sent to my old address

Due date is April and I thought they would be deducting it from my monthly pay but it appears I have to pay using a card or something

It’s very simple. Call them!!!

Lender is offering me 13.4% APR for a car finance. Is this a good deal or I should try my luck and see if I can get a lesser APR.

But my fear is that, hope this current APR won’t leave a footprint on my credit file and make other lenders want to offer me a high APR.

Have you seen anyone who have tried it and got rejected?

If your partner and child are not with you in the UK as dependants on your student visa, they wont be able to come to the UK as your dependants on a graduate visa.

You can go ahead if your lawyer insists, maybe you will be the first person I will know that gets rejected.

Good afternoon everyone, please is it possible to apply twice on the same COS(certificate of sponsorship), my cousin applied and was denied due to 3.5 score in Listening on her IELTS. She has re-written the exam and passed all aspect above 4.0, can she still re-apply with the same COS after a rejection?

Well according to the gov website, you should request another CoS because the one that cousin used to apply has been used (whether it’s a successful application or not)

But I remember someone arguing here that they have reused a CoS before, I don’t know how true that is.

Seriously?? Didn't know this o. Does this mean someone with a domiciliary care CoS for example can apply and also hold a care home CoS without switching? You mean it's possible to have two employers? Kindly clarify...

I’m not sure I understand your question but I believe the reason you have another CoS is so you can switch to that company. If you don’t switch, it will expire after 3 months. You also cannot start working for that company until your application is successful.


Even on the other hand, according to the uk gov website, you can have two employers with two different CoS which will allow you to work more than 20hrs with one of them. I haven’t met anyone with this but you can find more information on the website.

Sorry a couple of my colleagues have had this same issue. Not one. Not five. Not twelve. I am not here to argue with you or anyone else. Shalom

Well, I am saying this has happened to me and a couple of other friends which some are nairaland users.

Infact one of them had a CoS from Company A which sponsored her at the time and had CoS certificates assigned to her from 2 diff companies B and C concurrently, one of which was NHS. She later switched to her company of choice.

Not arguing either, only talking from experience.

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.

I have a question here please.

A recently graduated student in youkay got a care COS in England but has not used it to apply for visa. He also got another health care job in Scotland but the coy in scotland is not able to generate a new COS for him because they said it is showing on the system that he has a COS. This person preferred Scotland to England. Please advise on what he needs to do.

Note. I have not seen a case like this before, what I always know is someone switching from an existing COS to an undefined COS


Some companies can lie sha 😂😂😂 This is 1000% false

No too think am, like I said. The carpets, for instance, I have the option to pay it over 3 years, interest-free, Zero deposit... Many of the other fees were not paid at once, they happen over a few months typically. Even I can't believe I spent this much but it just happened a day at a time.

Not hidden but little costs here and there that could add up. The only major one really is the Solicitor's fee which is like £1.5k to £3k. With a New build, you have to furnish, etc depending on what the Builders are willing to do or not do. With an Old build, you might have to fix a few things.

If you're like me, I would say "no think am, just put head". If I realised I would be spending so much, I would have waited for another 1 year to save up but it was better I didn't know cos I have spent so much but just one day at a time.

I have put down below some of the extra costs for me and I didn't include things like Sofa, Transport for the various times I had to go to the site; and numerous purchases to furnish the new house. Most of these may not apply if it's a house that's already furnished. The Upgrades are things like fridge, spotlights, extra taps and lights, turf in the garden, etc.

Chai 11k plus. And this one no follow inside deposit ooo

What about HCA’s and support workers in the NHS, Can they bring in dependants?

Cos it’s seeming like it’s only NHS nurses and doctors that are being focused on.

Only British citizens or those on ILR can apply for spouse/family visa, if they have an income of 38k+

Family visa is different from dependent visa.

The dependants of those who came in with 3yrs care visa would be stranded once their visa ends after 3yrs


I believe people should avoid UK for now.

Wether care visa or student Visa...many won't find it easy.

Thanks for your feedback but just to let you know that I already have a start date as I now have my unconditional offer. I even had my starting salary reviewed upwards and the letter reissued. The only issue is the fact that CoS is not mentioned anywhere on it and this I am going to address before I resign my current job. Meanwhile, I discussed about my need for CoS during my interview and there was no pushback so that also contributed to my assumption.

Good day house, I was on a skilled worker visa but have been dismissed by my former employer, the company is asking me to pay 10,000£ for the COS, because I didn’t work 5 years with them, and they want to serve me court paper, please anyone know the kind of lawyer or knows a lawyer I can get in uk, I live in Swansea (wales) because they did not use up to 3000£ to get my COS, please I need any good lawyer in uk

Thanks

Na this kind case UNION dey like, but I doubt if you belong to any union. I will advise you to join one even if you have a new employment. You never can tell when they will come in handy.

Try and contact ACAS and explain your case to them, they might have an advice for you.
