Re: Permanent Residency in UK for US spouse, to apply from US or in the UK?

Hello Scout,

I thought that the visas were now being issued for 27months instead of the 24 months, to allow you a little more flexibility in travelling.

That's my recollection of some...

Has anyone considered a career change when MBTTUK?

Hello All,

I'm an Engineer by trade and working in a very narrow field of electronics design for the last 15 years or so.

One of the reasons I moved from the UK was that work in the US was more...

Re: Moving back to UK - Need help on settlement visa

Problem is though, that I think you have to show proof of suitable accommodation, when applying for the visa. I can't see that just saying I'll get a hotel, would be enough, as that would then become...

Re: Moving back to UK - Need help on settlement visa

I don't think that there is any requirement to be in the same country when applying. The applicant cannot be in the UK, and has to apply from the country that they are normally resident.

Re: UK Settlement visa - about accomodation

I'm not sure if you can get by with just a hotel as accomodation. It's a difficult one as you don't want to get a flat while you are abroad and potentially have to pay rent, bills on it while you are...

Re: Car Insurance

This important question seems to come up every so often. Is it worth compiling a thread of insurance companies that maybe friendly to expats with letters of good driving from abroad?

Re: Taking a car back to the U.K please read

Lala,

My recollection is that if the car is above a certain age it doesn't go through the SVA, but the regular MOT. I believe it used to be 10 years, but I don't know what it is now.

Re: New Rules for Immigrant workers coming to UK

The spouse visa is not points based and I don't think that there's any restriction on the job the spouse would take being in a specialised field etc.

In fact, it's probably in the employers...

Re: New Rules for Immigrant workers coming to UK

Hello Flea,

I thought that this would only affect those that were looking to come to the UK on a work basis. If one of the couple was a UK citizen, the other partner would have the right to work...

Re: Torn...living in US, but miss UK...need help!

I'm exactly the same way. I moved out to the US for work, have a good, well paid job. The industry that I work in, is quite specialised, but there are a lot of companies that I can work for in the...

Good luck.

Re: HEATHROW AIRPORT

Yep I think that's it.

I think that there's a list somewhere of countries that require a TB Chest Xray.

Re: Does anyone know how to help?

I would go and have a chat with the Citizens Advice Bureau, maybe they could give you different avenues to try and maybe put you in touch with potential non government organisations that could help.

Re: CARS

In the old days you could get insurance on the chassis number or the VIN. So insurance isn't an issue.

On the registration.. I believe that if you pick up the vehicle from the customs guys at the...

Re: CARS

The SVA people just issue a pass/fail certificate. They won't help with the modifications etc.

I think that if you fail they list out the reasons and then you get a free re-test within a couple of...

Re: £ 820........AAAACK

Be glad you're doing it this year and not next, when chances are they'll be doing away with ILR and putting in the probationary citizenship malarky.

Re: Those who have returned ...do you regret having emigrated in the first place?

You know it's one of those, that I really needed to be away to appreciate home.

Re: Starting to evaluate our options - yikes!

I think that you're doing the main thing, which is thinking about it. It maybe that it's better for you to stay, better for you to go or better to delay things.

Re: British citizenship through birth?

I think more information is required.

What was the UK immigration status of your parents at your birth?
Do you or your parent's have any other links to the UK?
