Customer Question

Hello, my problem is that my tier 2 visa likely expires before my employer will provide me the new CoS number. What should I do? I am in the UK and have a new job offer. Could I apply without this number and send it later?
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?
Customer: I am Ukrainean, live 8 years in the UK. I've just learned that I need ATAS before the university will give me CoS
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about the tier 2 visa?
Customer: Not yet. I am just trying to do this now
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

Good morning, you can make renewal application up to 1 day before expiry if you will not get the ATAS in time you can put in human rights then switch before you receive a decision on the human rights. You will become an overstayer if you do not make application before expiry date.
