This question already has an answer here:
I worked in the UK for the last couple of years on a Tier 2 visa but moved to another country recently. I tried to re-enter the country during the curtailment period unaware that the visa was not valid (although a part of the curtailment letter said I had leave to enter until the curtailment period).I was denied entry and removed from the UK. Can I apply for a long term visa directly or do I need to apply for a 6-month visa first (since this is recommended to see your international travel history)?
Thanks in advance!
