Thank you for your answer.
The UK Borders Agency advises:
"We strongly recommend that you do not use this service if you have any form of adverse immigration history."
Normal visa process takes 10-15 working days, while Priority Visa takes 3-4 days.
The past overstay in Singapore was settled via small fine only. Will it delay my Priority Visa application?
Also does UK visa online application form ask for overstay in Singapore?
Thank you for your detailed reply. I'm applying for work visa.
I have never visited UK and have clean profile, that small incident is quickly settled with Singapore ICA and the fact that my visa in Singapore has been good and have been living for more than 8 years in Singapore under long term work visas.
So in short, could you please kindly confirm that the issue is irrelevant and I can happily go ahead with Priority Visa to UK? Thanks.
Thank you. Last question:
You said: "The application process asks if you have ever been deported‚ removed or otherwise required to leave a country other than the UK. You should answer honestly and explain the situation."
I just overstayed during as my 1 year visa was expired while 4 year visa yet to be applied & granted and never had been asked to leave. Do I still have to raise this and explain the situation?
Yes Howard, I have rated and paid. Thank you for prompt help :)
