Thanks for your question.
To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following:-
What is his current visa status, when/how did he obtain it and when does it expire?
Has he enquired with the company he is currently working for would be willing to sponsor him?
Is the only reason that he does not meet the eligibility criteria for an extension his not earning £24k-40k? How much does he earn?
Is it simply the earnings which mean he does not meet the points based criteria?
You are certain that they would not be wiling to sponsor him?
When a company applies to sponsor someone it is done under the Tier 2 Sponsored Skilled workers rules, they would have to offer to sponsor him to do this and I suspect you are right in that Wetherspoons (being a very large company) may not do this.
Is he in a relationship with a UK/EEA citizen or person with ILR or another visa status in this country?
How did his younger brother obtain UK citizenship?
Where are you based?
Thank you Tom,
We will try.
Could you present our case? I could bring Alex to London if that is the place. I feel that you are the right person I can trust.
Look forward to hearing from you
