This answer was rated:

Needed help regarding immigration law - Tier 2 General visa to ILR settlement:I was offered a Tier 2 General visa for a job of Web developer(SOC: 2137) in September, 2014, salary of 24,000£ in a university.
I extended my visa during August, 2017 in the same job. My visa expires 4th June 2020.
I have lived more than 5 years in Tier 2 (General) Visa getting salary of £31,000pa, ILR visa requirement was £35,800 and I was not eligible for ILR.
Now that my job code has been added to Shortage occupants list on Oct 6th 2019, I would like to know if I can apply for ILR provided meeting experienced pay for the job of £25,700.
Can you please let me know if I am eligible for ILR application or is the rule only applicable for new COS issued after 6th Oct 2019?Thank you.


Further to your question, i will revert back to you shortly with a response.

Kind Regards
