Hi
I received an e-mail from Breytenbachs today to inform me that Tier 1 will be implimented for the rest of the world at the end of June.
As far as I understand it will mean that the EC will be issued for a 3 year period and not 2 years like it is now.

We can only apply after the 9th of September :-( So till then it is just keeping our heads down. Trying to register with some employment agencies, as apparently this helps when you apply for EC too.

Hey Chrissie
Congrats. Have you applied for EC yet? I'm waiting for my 3 month maintenance period to be over so will only apply in November but is there any major documents they require besides the bank statement and the proof of accommodation? (besides the other general things we had to send with the HSMP app). There's nothing earth shattering right?
