Hello alex, I have not been married for 4 years and when I applied for visa to come to uk I was just newly married and the home office granted me wuth indefinite leave to enter straight away when it says in the website that one needs to be married for 4 years if they have to be granted indefinite leave to enter. I am worried if they have given me wrong visa and will that mistake make me go back to my country.
I have been guven indefinite leave to enter nit indefinite leave to remain. This indefinite leave to enter has validity date on right hand corner of my visa stamp stating 13th october 2013. So I am applying for no time limit stamping on my visa as I sm not eligible for citizenship because it has been just more than 2 years of me coming to this country. Al I wanted to know from you is will there be a problem for me as I have been granted ILE in the first place as my marriage is just 2 year old. Please help me
No alex, my visa states very clearly that its indefinite leave to enter. I checked in ukba website which clearly stated that ILE cannot be issued without mentioning the validity date. It very clearly said that people who have ILE need not apply for ILR because both are indefinite status.
Then why does ukba website state that people who have ILE need not apply for ILR. I have dpoken to quite a few solicitors and even thry told the same to ne. You are of different opinion. I dont know dhat I should be doing.
Plz look at the end of this page
Lol. I think what has happened with me has never happened with anybody else . Getting a wrong visa in the begining and I am just worried that there should be no problem when I apply for no time limit stamping next week. What should I say if they ask me or tell me I have been on wrong visa and I cant apply for no time limit. How would you advice me to answer them
Thank you. I will be waiting for your reply.
Hello thre. I got married in may 2011 and applied to come to uk ad a dpouse as my hubby had an ILR status then. We never lived together before that. I was granted ILE straight away but with validity till october 2013 but my passport expires in 2020. I was not aware of any of these things and was preparing myself to apply fir ILR this month. When I went thru the ukba webdite and after talking to a couple of solicitors who confused me more, some said I dont have to do anything now as I already have permanent status and some told I need to apply for no time limit stamping. I even got an appt for the same for next week. I am now totally confused and worried. Hope you can advice me.
Thanks so much. Your answer seems bit consoling. I am really worried because my husband is not supporting me wit my visa and he is threatening to write a letter to home office so that they can take me out of this country as we both r not in gud terms and I am also pregnant with his baby. I dont wanna leave this country thats why want to secure my visa before my husband does something to trouble me and threaten me. Are you sure I dont have to apply for ntl which might make my visa secure . Please help me.
On what basis does your husband think your visa can be revoked?! You have ILE. That is the end of the matter.
Your husband is not going to be able to get you removed from the country (I always find these types of threats rather distasteful and, fortunately, they are usually empty).
I would recommend that you make sure you have the Life in the UK Test passed as quickly as possible. This will help matters next year.
There is no need to apply for NTL. If you want to do so then you can but the UKBA might wonder why you want to do so if you have not lost your passport or visa. If you do this then I would definitely advise the Life in the UK Test is passed before applying.
Again, your husband cannot have you (and his unborn child) removed from the UK. The only basis for ILE being removed would be if you had supplied fraudulent documents - you are not responsible for the ECO's mistake and ILE will not usually be revoked in such circumstances.
Did your visa state 'subject to KOL'?
It does not say anything like that. It says spouse of so n so and mentions indefinite leave to enter and in right hand corner says valid till october 2013. Thats all. I am working as a doctor here and I m paying all taxes and abiding al rules and regulations. What does subject to kol mean
