Thanks for your response on this. Regards XXXXX XXXXX guideline as below , I have a few doubts / questions. Please could you clarify / advise .
You Said - 1. To switch to a different employer you will need to inform the UK? and obtain a certificate of sponsorship from your new employer. You will then need to submit an application to the UKBA whom will issue you with a visa pertaining to the new employer.
My doubts - 1> Is this possible as per current UKBA rules ?
2> Will my transition from Tier 2 ICT to Tier 2 General require me to be in my base country? Or can the application be done from inside the UK also. 3> Is it possible for the new company to apply for my COS inspite the fact Im already on a COS with current employer - Do i have to resign before the new company applies for my COS 4> If the new company does not get a COS then will it affect my current job ?
There are so many UKBA rules changes recently , its really difficult for me to keep trak of evey immigration rule change.
