Default Activate TWP the return to UK

My current situation means that I will need to activate TWP at POE, return home 5 days later without commencing empoyment. I wil then return to Canada 8 weeks later and start work. I ned to do this because of LMO expiry dates and things that have happened in th UK that prevent me from going straigt out.

Has anyone done this? Are IO OK with it? Any problems?

Thanks

As I recall the work permits generally have a statement on them that they do not guarantee entry. In practice, not a problem as long as you answer "yes" to the question "are you still working for the same employer" when you go back.

I am considering landing in January with my family to apply for TWP. I have a job offer, LMO and police checks.
Am I taking a risk by doing this?
If I apply to LOndon for the TWP letter of approval it may not be returned in time as my LMO expires in January.
Can I apply to London and if it comes back in time great but if not am I ok to then try and gain TWP on POE when I have an application in LOndon?
HELP!
Alos does it make any difference that I have a PR application in London which is currently being processed.(no medicals yet)?

I arrived, activated my LMO, worked for here for 2 weeks, went back to the UK for 3 weeks to sort the house out etc, then came back.

No issues, but border control did give me 20 questions in the nicest possible way on my return :-)

you'll be fine.

good luck
