Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
I've been living in the UK for going on 13 years. I have a indefinite leave to remain through marriage which is currently in my old passport. The law states that I do not need to move this VISA from the old passport to the new PBR card if I don't want to. I seem to have an employer who is telling me that due to my VISA being in my old passport it is not valid and therefore I cannot work in the UK, which is ridiculous as I've paid taxes get P45's and I'm a director of a UK limited company! Because the work qualification website asks 4 questions and the last one says, your visa is in a "current" passport, mine is in my old passport, he is telling me I need to get a PBR card and can't work until then. Based on my review there is no need to do this as the immigration law states I do not have to move my VISA to a new passport or get a PBR card. Your help or the regs would be most helpful. thanks, Neal
add: I've had my IDLR since July 2003 and so not effected by the change in law in 2015. I've also read that you do not need to transfer your IDLR to a BPR as it's not mandatory.
Thanks exactly what I expected. As I'm an American I have a valid passport an carry both.
