LONDON: It is very important for those jobless skilled workers (Tier 2), which includes healthcare workers, to check their immigration status online. Particularly for those who became jobless from their parent sponsor in UK.

One of the community members informed this website that he found out through the UK Home Office online service that he is not allowed to work in the UK anymore. He informed us that he never received any notifications from the Home Office by email or post.

We insisted him to check for any correspondences from Home Office in his email address which he used when he registered with the Home Office and also check the postal address given to the Home Office during the time of his arrival in the UK.

On checking his previous email he was shocked to find a letter from Home Office stating that his employer had informed them that he was not in employment with them anymore. The Home Office cancellation letter also said that he will have to make arrangements to leave the UK within the 60 days. In his case he saw the letter only after the 60th day. He was asked to seek legal guidance and was signposted to a solicitor.
