Hello dear Sir/Madam I have a diplomatic visa for myself and for my independents (wife and five children), our visa will expire in March 2015. My wife is now studying English at LSI and she will join the university next year after she finish her English, and she is sponsored by Saudi Arabia Cultural Bureau in London. My oldest son will be 18 years old in March 2015 studying at Southdowns college and he is also sponsored by Saudi Arabia Cultural Bureau, my other son will be 16 years old in December and he is in Year 11 GCSE at Springfield school and he will be sponsored by Saudi Arabia Cultural Bureau when he finish his GCSEs in June 2015. my other son is now in year 9 and daughter in year 8 at Springfield school and the last one in his reception at Solent Infant School . Now if I go back I am willing to leave them in the UK to finish their studies but I do not know what type of visa to get for them especially that Southdowns college and Springfield school do not offer CAS numbers for the immigration office. Is there any way you can help me with this matter? Please excuse my bad English Mr. Alzahrani
LSI told me that my wife should get a ( c-visa or Student Visa ) and they will offer her a Tier4 visa if she score 4 in each component in her IELTS exam, she has already scored 4 in overall Band Score but not in each components,she scored 4 in Listening 3 in Reading 4 in Writing 5.5 in Speaking. But till she can score 4 in each component to get the Tier4 visa what shell we do,and what will happen for my children who they are in the middle of their studies ?
sorry, I forget to mention that we have been in the UK since 4th of Apr 2010
Thank you for your answer, but if my wife has got her Tier4 visa before my son has reach 18, will he be able to continue studying at the college with dependent visa or does he still need the CAS.
The other thing will my family be able to switch their visa from diplomatic visa to Tier4 visa from the UK or do they have to leave the country to switch the visa ?
Thank you very much Thomas
