Customer Question

Is working less than 35 hours a week, ie. Only 29 (@ uk minimum wage) a general cause of refusal by the home office to renew a domestic worker visa FLR (0)?

The requirement is that the domestic worker must be working "full time". Although the immigration rules does not explain what is meant by "full time", the Home Office policy has been to consider 30 hours or more per work as full time work and anything less is not considered full time.

So, 29 hours per week would not be classed as full time work and would result in a refusal of the application.

Hope this helps.
