Hello,

The good news is yes, you may change to a similar job as a domestic worker in a private household and you simply write a letter to the Home Office notifying them that you have changed jobs, there is no formal application to be made until you extend your visa or apply for settlement in the UK after 5 years as a domestic worker.

The address to send your letter to the Home Office is:

Immigration enquiry bureau
UK Visas and Immigration
Lunar House
40 Wellesley Road
Croydon
Surrey
CR9 2BY


Hope this helps

letter that she is employing me as their helper.?is it not too late for me to apply for visa extension?

Thank you.

You should apply before your current visa expires.

To extend your visa, you will require

1) a letter from your new employer saying you are employed by them and that your employment is still continuing;

2) you and your employer will both need to sign this statement of the terms and conditions of your employment:

or you may apply by post:
