For those who completed their stage 2, I am yet to apply as I want to land a job before i move there physically… so a few questions
When i submit stage 2, can i put arrival date say Feb 2022? And from there i presume the visa will be valid for 3 months?
When does the 3 year clock start on the visa? When u first land in the UK or your visa start date?
Assuming I don’t get a job, before the visa kicks in and i get it in to the 1st year of the 3 year visa. Can i still apply for ILR at the end of that 3 year although i would have technically been working for 2.5 years or even 2 years in the country and paying taxes?
Would really appreciate any clarification so I can apply for the Stage 2 and date of arrival accordingly.
Thanks in advance
