Following this thread with interest.
It seems we are ok for now.
But hearing some stories on Facebook.
(And I know we should take this with a grain of salt but..)
Some people say they were given "temporary residence"
Others even suggesting the requirement to give a bank statement is indicative of a necessity to show you can support yourself financially.
There's an official (supposedly) group on Facebook who claim to have taken part in the brexit withdrawl negotiations. *Citation needed* even they say that showing you have enough savings "may" be a requirement.
Based on this I'm reluctant to pursue the application process without first putting all my savings and holding off getting a new (bigger) apartment because of a new 8 pound addition to the family, because I'm worried the drastically reduced savings amount. Which is over 2 thousand simply for a deposit, before furniture is even looked out *may* effect our application.
All this would be solved if simply the foreigners office were communicative. But they aren't.
In my defence the first 3 emails I sent had over a month between.
The response was vague, short and concise. Ignoring several of my questions.
Phone calls were ignored so I began emailing more often but imo not recessively maybe twice a week.
Well if they just answered once properly I would be happy. Being particularly articulate myself, especially vocally. I feel I can safely say their response was *poor*
It isn't enough to just say keep waiting.
We have a family here and certain plans we need to make are effected by their unresponsiveness. Not to mention it has cost me 2 job possibilities already.
When simply the employer wanted a written confirmation I could stay and work (2 months no reply) when I finally got the letter I uploaded here, the job possibility had passed.
And it would have been a great one. Perks, career prospects. Great wage and transport provided.
I am not normally one to complain. Live a quiet life and keep to myself.
This to me just seems unprofessional, because I could do a better job myself. For.definite
Oh and not sure how covid can always be used as an excuse. Even when you're job only involves emailing and you're working from home.
Smells like shirking to me but oh well.
