The School will reimburse the cost of a postal permanent residence application. The reimbursement will be for one year in the first instance and applications made within the period 1 August 2016 to 31 July 2017 will be eligible for reimbursement.
Staff who wish to apply in person using the UKVI’s premium service may apply for an interest-free loan, repayable over 12 months, to help them cover the additional cost. In addition, staff may apply for an interest-free loan to help them cover the application fees for their dependants.
To claim your reimbursement, please bring the receipt for your application to the HR Division, where you will be asked to complete and sign a claims form.
If you wish to apply for a loan to cover the application costs of either using the UKVI’s premium service, or applying for permanent residency for your dependants, please contact Payroll at firstname.lastname@example.org to make the arrangements.
For any staff who feel their circumstances mean that they need one-to-one advice on the options available to them (depending on levels of interest), HR will either arrange a drop-in session or a direct phone conversation with the lawyer. Please email HR.Visas@lse.ac.uk to express your interest.
