Hi Ridiomas 

I'm afraid we can't give you any advice about migrating. It's all very complicated to migrate to the UK. I recommend you try to talk to someone in the embassy in Colombia.

Thanks

I didn't know the fourth official is in charge of adding the time extra after the time reglementary has passed. I always thought the referee has had the decision final about this.
