  • Re: Confusions

    Hello Raju Daju,

    I am in a little bit confusion which is due to my immigration status. I am a work permit holder in the UK. I have few months to complete my 5 years period as work permit holder so that I can apply for ILR. The big confusion came as my employer suddenly decided to award me with payrise by (14.8% of Gross salary). From my little knowledge, I know that has to be notified to home office but who is responsible for this me or employer? I asked my employer to write to home office about it but they say it does not need as outstanding employee deserve reward. I do not know what to do???? Will it affect or cause any hassle when I apply ILR? Please advise me.....tkx

    As long as you have completed period of 5 years provided with your wage slips, P60 that you have been working with the same employer you are eligible to apply for ILR. However You must pass life in the UK exam or an ESOL Entry Level 1 to qualify for ILR.

    If your employer increased your salary, it does not curtail to your ILR.You do not need to inform to the HO in relation to increase your salary. As long you have satisfied the conditions of your employment, indefinite leave to remain will be granted on application to a person provided:

    (i) spent a continuous period of 5 years lawfully in the UK, of which the most recent period must have been spent with leave as a work permit holder

    (ii) meet the requirements of the Immigration Rules throughout your leave as a work permit

    (iii) is still required for the employment in question, as certified by your employer; and

    (iv) must have sufficient knowledge of the English language and sufficient knowledge about life in the United Kingdom.

    I would advise you to follow the Immigration Rules provided that

    (i) you hold a valid Home Office work permit; and

    (ii) should not of an age which puts you outside the limits for employment; and

    (iii) must be capable of undertaking the employment specified in the work permit; and

    (iv) does not intend to take employment except as specified in your work permit; and

    (v) able to maintain and accommodate yourself and any dependents adequately without recourse to public funds
