I stay here on your visa and you leave on mine? Probably wouldn’t work.
I’ve just had mine cancelled too. Apparently (the Brit Trade & Culture Off called the police for me) it takes a while for word to filter down, but you evenually get a letter giving you seven days to get out of the country.
This is not gospel, but… if you have another job, or reason to be staying, then you can extend your existing visa and begin the process all over again without leaving the country - as long as you put in the paperwork before the seven days are up.
Of course, the realities of how that works will depend on the person handling the paperwork. And the source of my information may have got it wrong, or have their own ideas, but it’s worth a go. I’ll be trying it that way first if a decent job comes along.
Trouble is I want to be picky about the job I take, and don’t want to be up against a deadline like this. I guess you’re in the same boat.
I had a friend - well, someone I worked with - who claimed that he had simply bought his tickets and handed in his ARC at the airport. Told 'em he was leaving, and got a new visa the same day in Hong Kong. It all sounds plausible, but before I came here I believed I could work and get paid every month without any problems too.
Keep in touch.
