Posted 25 November 2012 - 11:40 PM
I am on Tier 1 general visa until june 2013 and need to apply for my extension.I claimed 25 points(Intial Tier 1 visa) for previous earnings(£25,000-£28,999).Now, for my extension I have to show 40k for 25 points according to Points based calculator.But a friend of mine has recently got the extension with 25 points having 25k salary.Could you please clarify which of the case is true to consider?

There are different rules apply for those who have Tier 1 G on/before April 2010 and for those after April 2010, So, I think you got visa before April 2010. So no problem for that and you will still get 25 points if your salary range between £26,000 - £28,999. For you all rules will apply like this:
"Applications for leave to remain where the applicant has, or has had, leave as a Highly Skilled Migrant, as a Writer, Composer or Artist, Self-employed Lawyer, or as a Tier 1 (General) Migrant under the Rules in place before 6 April 2010, and has not been granted leave in any categories other than these since 6 April 2010"
I hope that helps!
