Default Work Visa Renewal

I am due to leave my present job in early Feb next year.
I do have a job already lined in still here in the sand pit up in Al Khobar.

Now the question is !!!
I have to go back to the UK for the New Visa and Full Medical.
The new work visa is issused in the uk.
Medical has to be done also in the UK.

I have been told i need a NOC in order for them to process me back in the UK.
I know my present employer will not issue me an NOC.

How can i get round this problem. ???

My present passport is less than 2 years old and has my present work visa in there.
Is it worth while changing my passport when i am in the uk for one of these 4 hour quick turn round passports.

why not get a final exit visa from your current employer in february, this will mean you are no longer under their sponsorship and you can apply for the new visa under your new employer?

Yes i will be getting my final exit in feb
But the agency in the UK Are still insisting on me having an NOC before i arrive back in London.

But as i read it i have finnished and have an final exit from my present employers so i have nothing to do with them hare in Riyadh.
My new job is in Al Khobar different company.

You may have to simply grease a few palms in order to get the NOC issued as legally I don't think they are allowed to withhold it. Alternatively threaten to pursue the matter through the courts.
