I have a question about my switch from skilled worker visa

Customer Question

Hi, my name is***** have a question about my switch from skilled worker visa to bno visa
JA: Could you provide me with any other relevant information about the situation surrounding the visa?
Customer: I came to the UK on a skilled worker visa in April 2021. I applied as the BNO dependent in March 2022. I then terminated my employment with my employer who sponsored my skilled worker visa on May 31, 2022. I have been advised to withdraw my BNO dependent application because I travelled outside Uk while pending for a decision. I withdrew my BNO dependent application on Aug 1, 2022 and submitted a new application as the main applicant of BNO holder (not a dependent) on the same day
JA: Have you already talked to a lawyer about the visa?
Customer: I would like to understand if I’m overstaying in the Uk and can I apply my BNO application in the UK or do I need to leave the country I talked to a lawyer before about my previous application but not this new question
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I think that’s all

Thanks for your patience and enquiry. You would not be considered an overstayer in these circumstances. You would also not have been required to leave the UK in order to submit the new application.
