Since there is a significant problem in my Cos my case been treated as non standard application. It has been escalated to concern department on Aug 21st 2017. I have told to wait for 15 working days to know the outcome of the escalation process. My employer has contacted to pay remaining ISC charges and he did it on the same day. I have followed up and called them couple of times no proper response. I am working on critical project right now at offshore. My concern is my current tier-2 dependent visa will valid till I am getting my tier-2 General visa. Am I eligible to work at offshore with my UK employer. Is there any restrictions to work,/ getting salary at offshore
