Dear Hassan Babaei Khorzooghi,
We have confirmed your employment in Schlumberger Oilfield (UK) plc and we will proceed in processing your work permit documents as soon as you complete the work permit processing procedure.
Most newly employees' applying for work permit does not have the knowledge of what a work permit means and we have taken time to highlight its meaning below and reasons for work permit application.
A work permit is a type of Immigration Employment Document or IED. In order to stay and work in the UK a non-EEA national requires an IED and Leave to Remain granted specifically for the duration of the IED.
Work Permits (UK) administers the work permit arrangements on behalf of the UK Government. It is based in Sheffield as part of the Immigration and Nationality Directorate of the Home Office.
The decision to grant Leave to Enter the UK is considered and on approval the UK Home Office Government and will endorse the passport with a prior entry clearance visa and a UK Bank Account with a minimum deposit of £1000.00.
Consideration of a work permit or premium extension application by Work Permits (UK) of HSMP Fast Track Applications presently costs £650.00, this fee is paid by the work permit applicant and covers courier charges of sending work permit documents to applicants residence address.
Please note that the stated fee above has already been paid by your employer.
Decisions on work permit applications are made against the following criteria:
whether there is a UK-based employer;
whether the individual is going to be an employee of the UK employer;
whether there is a genuine vacancy for an employee in this country;
whether the employer is responsible for the post and is providing a service and not just personnel where the individual will be working at a client's address;
whether the pay and conditions of employment are equal to those normally given to a resident worker doing similar work;
whether the employment complies with UK legislation and any requirements for registration or licensing necessary for the employment;
whether the potential employee has a significant shareholding or beneficial interest in the UK-based company or connected business;
whether the skills, qualifications and experience needed to do the job meet specific requirements;
whether the person is suitably qualified or experienced to do the job on offer and whether there is a need for them to do the job on offer; and
whether the employee has a functioning UK Bank Account on his/her name for easy verification by the British Commission.
The information you supplied in your visa application form has been assessed against this criteria of submission of false or forged documents, or other misleading information and information found in your visa application form, has been accessed and found to be genuine, authentic and approved for the processing of your application for visa and work permit documents. Other application for work permit as filled on your behalf by your employer has already been endorsed along with your sent applications. But we need a UK bank account on your name to enable the processing of your application for visa and work permit documents because the British Commission is requesting for it.
Please note the Schlumberger Oilfield (UK) plc informed us that they are not to open a UK Bank Account for you because this is your personal account which you can use when you are presently in UK. They also stated that it is not part of their social responsibility to assist you financially in opening a UK Bank Account for you because it is against their company policy. You can also contact them for confirmation.
Upon acceptance of your application for work permit documents and residence papers/visa to United Kingdom, the Prospective Migration Service of HSMP will be made available to you within Seven (7) working days especially if all requirements as submitted as instructed. This service provides you with a complete package of independent and personalized, advice, information and documentation (including all relevant working in UK informations) - so you can make a valid submission of your work permit processing requirements as issued out to you by our Agency.
We recieved information from the British Commission that they will not stamp and validate your visa and work permit documents which is already undergoing processing if we do not provide them your functioning UK Bank Statement Of Account and BTA Money Receipt for review and enabling of this process.
We made inquiries concerning the validation, stamping and registration process for your visa and especially, your work permit documents by the British Government and they informed us that as an international employed worker coming to work in UK and to live/stay for more than six months under an employment contract for the first time, you must have your own United Kingdom bank account statement submitted to the British Commission for review and your BTA Money Receipt signed and stamped by London Embassy for documentation and immediate stamping and validation of your work permit documents by the British Commission before the processed documents are registered with your Country Embassy and sent to your home address for presentation to your Country Embassy for clarification/identification purpose and free allowance to United Kingdom.
BTA mean Basic Traveling Allowance. Your first traveling to United Kingdom to stay for more than six months under an employment contract with a UK company for an application for visa and especially, work permit documents requires the presentation of your Bank Statement Of Account and your BTA money receipt of minimum amount of £1000, deposited in your UK Bank Account and the original documents of Bank Account proof/verification submitted to the British Commission so that the British Government will know that you are not coming to London empty handed or as lunatic or terrorist.
Although your application status states that you are an employee of Schlumberger Oilfield (UK) plc with a lot of free benefits/services from the company, It is very important for you to understand that apart from being an employee Schlumberger Oilfield (UK) plc, you are also a civilian whom is required to follow the British Government instructions before your entrance to United Kingdom is guaranteed.
Your BTA money which is referred to as Basic Traveling (or is it travelers) Allowance covers expenses (hotel, feeding, movements etc) to an intending traveler who will be staying for more than six months under employment contract.
The British Commission are willing to stamp, endorse and validate your work permit documents/UK Visa as soon as we present them the original copy of your United Kingdom Bank Account Statement and BTA Money Receipt for endorsement purposes. And, it has once again been stated by the British Government that you must have a United Kingdom bank account with a minimum deposit of £1000 so as to enable the procurement of your BTA Money Receipt before your work permit documents/UK Visa are stamped, validated and sent to your home address.
The maximum deposit for UK travelers coming under an employment contract basis is above £10, 000 while the minimum deposit needed for your traveling to UK under an employment contract is £1000. Please note that the provision of BTA money is mandatory because you are under an employment contract status for the first time.
This order was given to us by the British Commission and it is better for you to execute it as given to prevent problems in getting your visa from the Embassy and other employment documents including your work permit documents from the British Commission. It is part of the British Commission/Immigration Act that an intending traveler who is not a UK Citizen and who is visiting UK to stay and live for more than six months under employment contract status and who must have applied for visa and work permit documents which is undergoing processing, must have a current functioning UK Bank Account with a minimum deposit of £1000 for the British Commission review before enabling stamping, endorsement and validation of your visa and work permit documents and immediate delivery of the documents to your home address . As soon as your BTA money minimum deposit of £1000 is deposited to your UK Bank Account for the endorsement and confirmation of your visit to United Kingdom under an employment contract status, the London Embassy will send a confirmation letter to your Country Embassy to grant you free allowance to UK as soon as you visit them with your residence visa and work permit documents for clarification purposes.
Note that these documents will be sent to you after your UK Bank Statement Of Account is submitted to the British Commission as explained above.
From the arrangements made so far, The British Government prescribed that we should provide a CIMB Bank Account Statement in your name for easier authentication and registration of the presented bank account statement with the London Embassy and confirmation of your BTA Money Receipt. Due to this, we have made negotiation with the CIMB Bank Berhad London to prepare your bank account statement and forward a copy of it to you and to the British Commission immediately. Therefore, you are advised to contact them to give you information regarding the opening of a new bank account with a minimum deposit of £1000 and make sure you pay in the minimum deposit of the sum of £1000 when returning your bank account opening requirement for the completing of this process so as to enable the provision of your BTA Money Receipt by the CIMB Bank, signed and stamping by the London Embassy.
