Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to RATE my answer OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE so I can get credited for my time.
When do you qualify of ILR?
Did you receive any documentation from the UKBA regarding your new visa?
I qualify for ILR 20th march 2013. I received approval for change of employment application for visa issued 20th june 2011. This is because I worked with a previous nhs hospital on tier 2 from 18th april 2009 until june 2011 when I changed jobs to my current employer in june 2011, and have since changed departments this jan 2013 but stayed with same employer this time.
Have I lost you? seem to be waiting but no reply to my question!
Thanks for the reply. Yes I am still in the SOC for doctors which is just one ie 2211. For now, seems like all is well, my question is how this change will translate when I apply for ILR, will it affect me negatively? where do I stand legally...this is where I need a reply. Ukba writes on their website all you've quoted above, but at the point of ILR requirements, say that you don't have to fall into the category of general grounds for refusal, one of which is doing a job different from that stated on your last COS . This is where I need clarification please.
Thank you very much for making things very clear. I was only thinking about the different department,.....not realising that same SOC code meant my core duties were still the same. Thanks for the clarity of your reply.
