Hello,

I am on a tier 2 visa, but want to leave my current employer. My wife is british, so I want to migrate to a spouse visa. Can I give notice before my new visa is approved?

Thanks

You can, but you won't be able to work for anyone else until the visa is approved.

OK thanks a lot. Will it have any impact on my earnings requirement?

Well if you aren't working at the time of decision, and you are relying on your income to meet the rules, then yes.

I'll stil be working at the time of the decision, I just don't want to wait for the appointment and then wait for 3 months to have to leave.

You need to be very clever to correctly assume when the application will be approved!

Oh right. I'll be doing a premium service and won't have my last day for a few weeks after that. Wow this is complex.

Then it's moot, as the approval is made the day of the appointment.

You definitely shouldn't resign before the appointment!
