2. RE-SCHEDULE OR EXTENSION OF JOINING DATE.
Job applicants MUST meet and submit all Visa requirements to the British Immigration Service before any request for re-schedule or extension of joining date can be granted. Applicants MUST note that we will never grant such requests unless all Visa formalities MUST have been met.
Applicants who do not require Visa to enter the U.K MUST submit their Flight ticket fees to the British Immigration Service for the booking and purchase of their flight from London city.
Applicants are to note that meeting all Visa requirements of the British Immigration Service guarantees STANDARD CHARTERED BANK of applicant's seriousness and commitment to work for us.
3. APPLYING DIRECTLY TO THE U.K EMBASSIES WORLD-WIDE
it has come to our notice that most applicants prefer to apply directly to the U.K Embassies in their various locations and when they make applications, their Visas are usually denied especially Job applicants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. When such visa applications are denied, it takes approximately 90 days to re-apply or make a second application and during this time, the Company will not be patient or wait for such an applicant, we usually revoke their offers immediately and recruit some other applicants.
Hence, to ensure that you pass through a hassle free Visa application process to the U.K, We have affiliated with the Local Immigration & Visa office here in London, the British Immigration Service. They will assist you with the Visa application, processing o[censored].K work permit and other relevant insurance and Travel packages that will be required for your legal entry into the United Kingdom.
Making an application with the BARTON CHAMBERS guarantees your Visa approval and in a lesser time as compared with applications made directly to the U.K Embassies. Once they have all your necessary papers processed, they will fax copies of the same to the U.K Embassy in applicants Country of location and such an applicant will be prompted on when to visit the embassy with his/ her passport for the Visa stamp.
This is the easiest process for International employees to meet up with Migration Formalities and join us as soon as possible.
4. IMMIGRATION EXPENSES, FLIGHT TICKETS & OTHER EXPENSES
Job applicants MUST bear costs for their Immigration expenses and submit receipts of payment(s) for the purpose of reimbursement. For no reason should Job applicants request that we shoulder such costs as such requests will certainly be turned down.
This is sequel to our past experiences we had with some Job applicants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East where STANDARD CHARTERED BANK shouldered all their Immigration expenses, paid them their Upfront Salaries and till this time, None of these applicants showed up. The contact numbers and emails they submitted are out o[censored]se at this time, we are currently battling this case with their various embassies in London and the case is on hearing at the London City Crown Court.
For this reason, the Management Board revised her International Recruitment Policies which entails that all Job applicants MUST bear all travel costs and on arrival to London, present receipts of payment made and will be reimbursed accordingly. Any applicant who finds this unbearable should forfeit this opportunity immediately.
5. REIMBURSEMENT OF IMMIGRATION EXPENSES, HEALTH CHECKUP & OTHER EXPENSES
All expenses made by Job applicants will be fully reimbursed on arrival to London or if applicants meet all Immigration requirements, we will send the Salary & Reimbursement application Forms for applicants to complete and return to our Accounts department for approval. Once approved, we will authorize our Bank to transfer funds to any Bank Account designated by such an applicant.
