Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
My Nationality is INDIAN. I am on a Tier 2 ICT Visa. Further details are as below:
Hi, I was of the same view, but i also came to know that since my VISA Type on the initial VISA says 'Tier 2 ICT Migrant <COS Number>' , it would have been granted under rules before 6th April 2010.
Is that incorrect? if so, what is the difference between my VISA Type and others who just got the VISA after me and they were granted VISA as 'Tier 2 ICT Established Staff'
Thanks. So it means if VISA Type says 'Tier 2 ICT Migrant', it implies Visa granted under rules before 6th April 2010?
Will SAR be able to give more clarification on this,if its an error or in accordance to rules?
Also, please confirm if it is the Date of submission of application in VFS which is taken into account or CoS Date can also be considered?
My 5 years will be completing in May 2015, when i can file ILR?
The rule which states a Tier 2 ICT visa holder can stay for only max of 5 years. Does that apply to me?
Lastly, can you please guide, if my date of entry in UK be of any issue for this 5 yr rule. I entered UK on 30-05-2010.
So will the 5 yr count will start from VISA Stamping Date(21-05-2010), VISA Application Submission or Entry in UK.
Sorry for the confusion, but will the VISA start date be relevant for 5 year count or for eligibility?
Ok. Just to clarify, date of entry is relevant for counting 5 yrs in country and visa application date is relevant to check under which rules visa was granted and hence eligibility.
