Thanks to Rotalsnart’s helpful post, I now know that I’m eligible for an APRC–probably. The only thing I’m concerned about is the financial requirements. I can give them the past three years’ tax statements, no problem. They can have statements for six years if they want. But a couple of people have suggested that they also pay attention to monthly salary for the current year. Is that the case? If so, what documentation is required for this?
I really hope this isn’t necessary because I’m not sure whether my monthly salary this year averages over 35,000 or whatever it was. I had a long holiday and was also busy studying, so some months are fine and others are a bit below that level. Will the authorities want an explanation for that?
Also, how quickly are the authorities processing applications these days? How long could I expect the whole process to take, from start to finish? Could I speed things up by doing some things concurrently, for example getting my health check done while my CCRD stuff was being sorted out in the UK?
Thanks for any advice.
