Hello
I'm on tier two spouse visa but I'm applying for doctor in training, so I have to switch to tier two General visa, will the period I spent on spouse visa count to the five years period for indefinite leave to remain?
And if not, what is my options if my spouse get the indefinite leave to remain? Will that give me more options for settlement?

Many thanks

To clarify you are in the UK as dependent of Tier 2 holder?

There is no such thing as Tier 2 spouse. You have Tier 2 dependant visa, as your spouse/partner is on Tier 2.

I don't know if you can switch from PBS dependant to Tier 2 General, unless you are a Tier 4 dependant (your spouse is a student).

Switching means changing visa within UK. I know you have to do it back home.
Unlikely. You start afresh with Tier 2 General.
