Hi

I am on Tier-2 General from feb 2009 i got intial visa for 3 years and i have to apply for extension in feb 2012.But My sponsor has got his Licence until 2013 feb


my doubt is if i apply for extension in feb 2012 with new cos will i be given visa for 2 years or will be given only for a year as my company's sponsors licence



is valid until feb 2013.As we know that our company extends Sponsors Licence in 2013 but i have to apply twice for the extension and pay twice if i have been given



only one year visa.Can any one Clarify this and also does the annual limit apply for incountry extension applications also and My job Category is Removed from the



applications list i wont to know wether i am still eligible to apply for an extension on the same job category working with the same employer .Many Thanks

Your employer needs to call the Employer's helpline to discuss the renewal process - I can't imagine that they are only able to issue Certificates with an end date before their license renewal date as this would cause all sorts of problems such as the one you describe...

In terms of the annual allocation it does not apply to In Country applications such as yours ie/ your employer can issue with with an Unrestricted certificate.

I presume you mean that your job is no longer on the Shortage Occupation List, and therefore they may have to satisfy the RLMT.

Hi Ok Its Resident Labour Market Test But i have working with the same job and hasnt changed the Job

I am applying only for an extension for the same job which i am doing.And i have been on tier-2


for the same job so i dont think RLMT is needed for extension applications if u are in the same

job where ur intial Tier-2 visa was approved for.

I agree with you - you will score the requisite points for having a CoS issued by a sponsor who is issuing this due to the fact that you are still working for them in the same job.

However the guidance and web content are very misleading - stating that your employer must carry out the RLMT see http://www.ukba.home...ettest/#header2 - there's actually 5 exemptions but they have missed this one out (and they actually only list 3 in the guidance)

I have written to the policy section asking for clarification and for the guidance to be amended - awaiting a response!

P15 of the guidance states that 30 points are awarded when it is an extension of the same employment, so a RMLT wouldn't be needed according to this. If there is another rule for those who had previously been on the shortage list then I can't find it.

Points are awarded, certainly, and that should suffice. But the guidance and web content treat the RLMT separately - Sponsor Guidance implies (para 254) and web content insists that the employer must carry out the test regardless:

http://www.ukba.home...bourmarkettest/

I'm confident that an applicant such as OP would qualify without the RLMT being satisfied, and therefore my view is that the guidance and web content need changing - it's an area that so many employers and employees struggle to understand so should be completely unambiguous. I've asked the Policy section to make the changes, so I'm sure they'll jump to it...

Policy Guidance Page 44/56 and Point number 204 clearly says no RLMT is not required for extension applications
