    Thanks @Ninja_Stoker
    Greetings from Ghana

    A few questions for you please.
    I know my coming to uk is for the RT, face to face medical, pjft and interview then return to my home country to wait for a Prmc date. Now where does the security clearance come in? Is it before Prmc or after? If its after, does it mean i will have to travel again to the Uk for just the Prmc and come back again to wait for clearance before phase 1 date?
    And also what time is the right time to resign from my job for phase one since one can be failed during Prmc.
    Last but not least.i read we from africa especially are prone to cold injuries, any advice on how we can reduce this injuries?thanks

    Generally, overseas applicants crack everything, up to and including PRMC in one visit to UK - it can actually be completed within 2-4 weeks with good comms prior to arrival with your processing AFCO. The advice is to plan well ahead.

    SC and the SC waiver is usually started upon arrival in UK but due to the time this can take, overseas applicants may wish to return home until SC is cracked, then fly back to join.

    SC for overseas applicants can take several months.
