I intend to remain an ex pat for a couple of years. I am already a non resident for tax purposes. I will spend less than 90 days in the UK per annum during this 2 year period - I am aware the law has changed on residency in this respect.
1) Children's education:
Our children are currently 8 (Tom) and 6 (Jessica). They are at the British school in Jeddah. Excellent school. However we need to get them into the British system before they reach High School age. We are currently looking at appropriate schools.
I need to work for another couple of years in Jeddah to top up the savings. We've just purchased our new home for cash
Thanks for that; I suspected my residency would be an issue. You've confirmed it.To finalise this could you just explain your paragraph on the financial requirement. My current (foreign) salary is well above the threshold as you say - I don't understand your reference to having to have a UK job offer? Also - you mention minimum savings of 62,500 GBP being required. Is that the level of savings required for her spouse visa if I (as sponsor) do not have employment in the UK? I will have UK pensions kicking in soon when I am 60 which will be about 15,000 GBP per annum.
Last question Tom,
If I return with my wife and kids permanently (and not maintain my job in Saudi) will they accept minimum savings of 62,500 GBP and my pension income of 15,000 GBP per annum without having a job offer in the UK?
Thanks Tom, I've ticked the excellent box!
