Self Employment Visa - Need advice & information
Hi to everybody,
I am from Turkey. I live in UK at the moment. I applied to Self Employment Visa in June, 2004. It has been 14 months & I haven't got the visa, yet. I will not write my CV here, but I have to say that I did my master degree here in UK. I don't know what is going on, but I think 14 months are too long. I call Home Office, & they say that the visa is still under consideration.
Why do you think it took so long?
Do you think it might take longer time? (I know that it is individual thing, but I think lots of people are waiting for their visas)
Is there something I can do to have the visa faster? (I already sent my potential customers' letters & all the regular documents)
My another question is based on what I heard from a friend. She applied for Self Employment Visa in June 2004 & announced to the Home Office that she started to work in July 2004 (before getting the visa & the passport) & now she is preparing her 1 year income-outcome to send to Home Office.
My question is that it is possible to do this (as she hasn't been accepted as Self Employed, yet)? I am asking this question, because, if I am allowed, I want to do it as well.
If any part of my question is not clear, please, let me know.
I will be waiting for your help.20 ago 2005, 08:37 Anonymous
