Today is exactly four years since the start of my first UK Work Permit, so if the legislation hadn’t been changed retrospectively (not that I’m bitter, oh no) I could have applied for Indefinite Leave to Remain last month. This would have meant I could work for any company in the UK without worrying about work permits, and that a year later I could apply for a UK passport. More importantly, it would have provided some security and hopefully reduced sarcasm from Immigration officials.
Oh well. Overall, I’m still incredibly lucky to have grown up in first world country with enough education and the opportunity to travel and work overseas so I shouldn’t whinge too much.
