-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi, can you advise what additional info is required. I am on a Tier2 ICT visa last 5 years. My visa was issued on 29th April 2010 but my certificate of sponsorship assigned on 1st April 2010. Would like to know whether I am eligible to apply ILR based on COS date?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Need some urgent response to my above query.
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
When did you apply for your visa?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Submitted my application at india vfs office on 28th April.
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
I am afraid you do not qualify for ILR as you applied after 6 April 2010 but you may extend your visa indefinitely with a new COS.
All the best
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is the COS granted is not valid for 3months which was under the rule befor6th April 2010? Will there be no scope or it is the discretion of authorities on the appointment day of decision? Any similar case where the ILR was granted or rejected based on your expert advise?
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
The main thing is the date of the visa application, not the date if the COS.
