Student To Spouse Visa In 6 Weeks, WOW!

Cynthia Barker writes...I was surprised when the official brown Home Office envelop arrived so quickly, and initially thought it might be a visa refusal. However, I was delighted when the spouse visa popped out and the student, who had just switched from Tier 4 to marriage visa in-country, was over the moon and screaming down the phone!

Well done to the Home Office who are not always congratulated when they get it right.

More care job orders came in today, this time from an upmarket nursing home group who need care assistants in the Northampton area. They pay between £6.45 and £7.00 per hour, which is not too bad outside of London where rents are much lower than in the capital. The employer will also help with accommodation if you need to relocate.

Carers must have some experience and the right to work in the UK, which means within EU or EEA only folks. The company has had very good experience with Romanian and Bulgarian workers, but sadly no luck with local advertising or apprenticeships in care. Overseas workers are still needed, just like they were 15 years ago when I started in this industry! Tier 2 work permit rules should be changed to allow care workers from outside the EU - that would solve the care and NHS staffing crisis.
