Her student visa expired in January 2013. She is still in the UK but without work. However she could now get a letter of employment for full time employment here in the UK. Would that help her get a visa and if yes, what would be the other requirements be?
thanks a lot for this. I need 2 further clarifications please:
1. if her student visa had expired less than a year ago, could she have applied for a work visa from the UK now?
2. when you say she would have needed to have worked with us for at least a year in order to qualify and apply for a work visa from outside the uk, the year in question should be the year when she was under her student visa? ie, could she get a temp work visa now from the UK, go back to the Philippines in a year's time and return with a permanent work visa?
thks again xx
