Thank you for your enquiry.
Under the 10 year long stay rule visa must be continuous and lawful. There is no requirement that your visa must be the same form.
Please note that I can only answer further questions when my first answer has been rated.
Sorry like I said I am unable to answer further questions particularly as the information you have provided was already in the first question. You have selected a low paying option which means I cannot spend any more time without rating.
Thank you. Switching your visa should not affect your application under the 10 year rule as the requirements are that your visa should be continuous and lawful
