Good News For Nationals Of A8 Countries
A8 country nationals recently received good news if they remained working in the United Kingdom after 2009. The decision was made that regardless whether they possess worker registration scheme permission or not the period spent working counts towards their permanent resident status.
Many foreign workers were never registered under the WRS scheme and that used to be a negativity when they wanted to apply for UK permanent residence.
This period from 2009 until April 2011 A8 nationals are now counting towards years spent lawfully in the UK. The UK Court of Appeal made this ruling which the Home Office will shortly confirm.
